Default TPMS Warning Light Won't Reset

Had the truck in at the local dealer a few weeks ago and they rotated, balanced tires and replaced one of the rims under warranty (it wouldn't balance).

Today was the first time the truck's been in cooler temps since and the TPMS light activated. It was the rear right tire (not the replaced rim). I added air and it's holding air at 66psi, but the warning light and flashing readout for that tire won't go away.

Manual says you may have to drive for up to 20 mins above 50 km/h to reset the TPMS system...but I drove well over an hour at 120+...it still didn't reset.

Is there a trick - like the ignition on, pump brake 4 times to reset the oil change msg?

Thanks in advance for any info/advice.

No.. no trick. I would make sure you are at the correct PSI according to your door jam sticker.

Also does your truck have that light load button? Would you happen to have it on by accident?

If all else fails it might be a bad sensor that needs replaced.

PSI is up there, 1-2 higher than others yet the rear right continues to flash while the others remain solid.

Light load option not selected...I even tried cycling through that to see if that would "refresh" the system and get it to reset - no luck.

I actually tried backing for a distance to see if inertia in the other direction would somehow reset the wheel sensor...

The sensor is sending the correct PSI amount - the dash is showing the right PSI amount, it just can't seem to figure out that the new amount isn't low...

Blarg. I would say this is an odd case of a faulty something. I know it's hard to keep going back but I think a trip to the dealer is in order. Dash lights are annoying.

A shop with a decent computer can scan the tpms system for codes....

I just encountered the America issue today on my 2012 1500. Psi is all good, and registering as so, but the low tire pressure light comes on and the evic flashes low tire pressure. I think it's a faulty tpms sensor. Also my right rear wheel.

I got mine to reset - just had to inflate the tire up to its max cold psi.
