How do I go about changing the alarm setting for the tire pressure?
It is in the owners manual and is somewhat involved and timed so be ready. I think it is in the section that deals with tire rotation and it will relearn the position and pressure at that time. The alarm will be set to whatever pressure is in the tire.
Depending on when or if you have purchased tires lately, most Discount Tires or the alike have a scan tool to adjust the settings now days. Most will do it for free if you are a customer.
What type of truck you have is helpful, new body styles can only be changed by the dealership for around $150.
The discount tire shops here in Tucson at lest have invested in a scanner that can program the tpms including setting the air pressure...I would call around to some tire shops before giving your money away to a dealership.
I worked at ft benning ga and we used chev vans for troop transport. ALL the tire press indicators were screwed up so best to carry a pressure gage. They never worked right. I drove one and decided to check with the gage, somebody had tried to air the tires using this press ind. on the dash.....the r front had 64 psi and the l rear had 17 psi. I checked all and adjusted with my gage and ignored the indicators all together. Could be dangerous for someone who doesnot know that the indicators are crap. Just check them with a gage and see what you really have. and be safe. PS these vans are replaced every year or so and maintained pretty well???
