Default Tpms Light Will Not Turn Off After Air is Refilled

So a week ago I saw that my tpms light was flashing, i refilled all my tires with the recommended psi (35 front 38 rear for my AWD), now the light still flashes and will not go away. I have tried searching with no luck, does anyone know how to turn it off?

well since you refilled the tires back to the recommended psi, the light should go away after a few minutes. also, is the light flashing and then becomes solid, or just flashing?

try driving a few miles so it updates. the light should disappear afterwards.

I had a similar problem with mine. I pumped it up, and the TPMS wouldn't turn off. Being lazy, I left it that way, yet it never ended up turning off. It ended up being on for a good few months.
I actually finally got it to turn off by re-initializing the system today. It's in the manual. You make sure the tires are pumped up according to what you want to initialize it at. Turn on the engine, and press the arrows until the screen INITIAL PRESSURE or something shows, then you press the ON/OFF button and hold it for a few seconds. Not sure if it's going to mess up with TPMS system, but it worked in turning off the warning light.

make sure you didnt set it to your 2nd set of tpms setting on your dash cause then it wont read your current sensor now and will stay on

The spare might also be low, as someone above said.
check that, too, and then drive it for a few miles, it should go out.

The spare doesn't have any impact on the TPMS. There is no sensor in it.

Most performance mods need a watch and timed course to demonstrate actual improvement. Few deliver the advertised claims. Many are actually worse than stock. The best performance mods are made to the driver.

Reset the pressure that sets the TPMS off. Instructions on how to do it are in the manual.
