How to Reset the Tire Inflation Light on a Saturn Car

by Faizah Imani

The 2008 and 2009 Saturns have a built-in feature that alerts you when your tire pressure is under or above the recommended pressure level. The feature includes an alert light that starts flashing on your car's instrument panel. If the light is on and steady, it means that the pressure in one or more tires is too low. If the light is flashing, it indicates that one or more tires are overinflated. The alert light cannot be reset until you properly tend to the pressure level to ensure the right amount of air is in your tires.

Turn on your Saturn ignition switch.

Press the "Lock" and "Unlock" buttons simultaneously on your lock remote. Keep holding the buttons down until you hear the horn beep. This takes about five seconds.

Deflate or inflate air into the driver's front-side tire for eight seconds. Listen for the horn to beep one time. When you hear the horn beep, it is an indicator that the tire is at the right pressure level.

Repeat the previous step for the remaining three tires. The remaining tires must be checked in the following exact order, the passenger-side front tire, the passenger-side rear tire and the driver-side rear tire.

Listen for your horn to beep twice. When the horn beeps twice, it is an indicator that your tire pressure in all four tires is at the recommended level.

Turn the ignition switch off. When you turn the ignition back on, the tire pressure light is reset.
