Unhappy 2014 Ram TPMS not working

Hi everyone, I just bought a 2014 Big Horn and I enjoy every minute driving it.
I picked it up from the dealer 3 weeks ago the TPMS was working fine, but the tire pressure wasn't even amongst all tires so an error message came up. I inflated the tires to 39 psi IAW the door placard, and now the yellow light is off but the TPMS hasn't registered pressure since that fault, it shows 4 -- in the cluster. Is there an easy procedure I can do myself to restore the reading?

Thanks for the help

Unless you have TPMS scan tool, I don't think you can do it yourself. Take it to the dealer and let them fix it.

Did you drive the truck after inflating the tires? When the tires rotate, they send out the wheel's data more frequently.

Yes I've been driving it for the last 3 weeks (1500 miles) since I inflated the tires.
There has to be some kind of way to put the truck in learning mode, where I could deflate each tire and re-inflate them. This would prompt the computer to communicate with each sensor. Again, it's a brand new truck under full warranty, I'll just take it to the dealership for my next oil change and have them look at it.

Maybe go over the 39 psi by four or five psi. Go for a drive and that might reset it.

I had my tires and wheels switched out and the sensors moved to the new wheels. Immediately I had readings although they were not consistent. Within 10 or 20 miles though, they were all showing the actual pressure of the tires.

So I would say you definitely need to have them looked at. What you're experiencing is not normal.
