New tires today, went off at first, then came back on. I went and aired them to 41/38 like usual, drove some, still didn’t go off.

Any ideas? Just run by the dealer and have them reset it?

Try 46/46 and drive it for a few miles to see if it goes off. If it does, then back them off to the 41/38. If not, then the dealer.

For the system to be reset, the pressure must be at 46/46. Very annoying but just deal with it for a few days. If the light doesn’t go off, there are two ways to reset the tpms system. Either the method of pressing the hazard switch on and off 6 times and using s scan tool, or the brake stomp on/off method also using a scan tool

I’ll give this a try in the morning. Maybe that’s what it is cause I just aired them up to 41/36

It seems to reset for me ok as long as I get it to 41ish and drive for a bit. I used to think 46 was required until I tried that and it worked.

Recently got a screw in my tire (Front Passenger).
Had it patched up and filled to 41 or 42. TPMS light stayed on for about 3 days, then it went away by itself after some driving.

One of the tires with my MR-501 wheels leaks, I would fill it to 46 while the car was running and the light would be out when I got back in the car.

For the location reset with the tool methods the hazard button one has never worked right for me, the brake/ ignition off/on method does work though.
