I filled all the tires on my 2010 Dodge four cylinder Avenger R/T to the approximate PSI which is 32 and my tire pressure icon still comes on and stays on every time I turn on my car. I can't figure out what's the problem. Can you please help me?

Answers from the Automotive Experts

Brandy Schaffels, Editor at AskPatty.com, Inc. You may need to reset your tire pressure monitor system sensor. The vehicle may need to be driven for up to 20 minutes above 15 mph in order for the TPMS to receive this information. Indirect TPMS systems must typically be recalibrated after adding air to a low tire, after changing or servicing a tire, or after rotating the tires on a vehicle. This is usually done by pushing a reset button on the dashboard or through the onboard computer, and then driving the vehicle for a determined amount of time so the system can "learn" the correct rotational speed. If this is performed when any tire is in an underinflated condition, the system will not report correctly. - See more at: http://caradvice.askpatty.com/ask_patty_/2016/01/keep-your-tires-in-shape-with-proper-inflation.html I also found the following link on YouTube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p8qzQwKQZQE You can download your vehicle's owners manual at this link: http://www.dodge.com/download/pdf/manuals/2010-Avenger-OM-2nd.pdf for more information about your specific TPMS system. Information about your TPMS system starts on page 161, and more information can be found on page 294. Hopefully this will help resolve the issue. If that doesn't help things, please find an AskPatty Certified Repair Shop at http://www.askpatty.com/search/?type=all&m=30&q=&keyword= and they can help you diagnose and repair the problem.
