How to reset low tire pressure warning indicator?

The cold weather caused my low tire pressure light to go off. I put air in the tires and the pressure is correct. The monitor shows the correct pressure for all four tires, but the left front is blinking and light won't go off. Is there a secret to turning off the warning indicator?

It should sort it's self out when you drive the car, it might take a few miles.

That is what I read in the manual, but it came on yesterday and still hasn't went out. I will give it another day of driving and off to the stealership if it doesn't resolve itself. Thanks for the reply.

It can take up to 10 minutes of driving at least 15 mph to relearn.

One more thing to try if you are still having the issue - temporarily run the pressure up ~5-7 lbs above the placard setting, then return it back to normal. Then drive around as Bernie stated.

I had this problem also when the cold weather hit here but I had also just put NITROGEN in the tires but the warning indicator went away after a few min. of driving and has returned. It does bring up a question I have though, are the TMPS run on batteries? Do they blink when the battery is going dead and you have to replace them?

I set it to 35 and it went out after a few miles, good suggestion. I guess once it comes on it has to go above the recommended pressure before it goes out. I brought it back down to 31 and all is well. Thanks again.

Actually there are batteries in the TPM's, but apparently they're not replaceable.
