Starting in 2007, all Chevrolet Suburbans were equipped with a tire pressure monitoring system. Most systems automatically reset when it detects the tires are inflated to the proper level. This normally occurs after 15 or 20 minutes of driving. Fortunately, the Chevrolet Suburban is equipped with a DIC (Driver's Information Center, which allows owner's to reset the system manually, instead of waiting. In order to reset your tire pressure monitoring system and turn off the "Warning" indicator, you'll need to inflate your tires to the proper level.

Step 1

Open your driver's side door and inspect the door jamb to find the tire specification sticker. This sticker lists the recommended inflation setting for your Suburban's tires, which will vary from vehicle to vehicle depending on the tire size.

Step 2

Unscrew the valve stem caps and apply the tire pressure gauge to determine the current inflation level. Compare the current inflation level with the recommended level.

Step 3

Use an air compressor to add air to the tire. Stop adding air every four or five seconds and check the inflation level again (you don't want to over-inflate).

Step 4

Repeat the process for each tire, adding enough air to bring it to the recommended inflation level. Replace your valve stem caps.

Step 5

Turn your key to the "On" or "Run" position. Press the "i" button on your dashboard until the phrase "Tire Pressure" is displayed.

Step 6

Press and hold the "check" symbol for three to five seconds. The system will check the tire pressure and the "Warning" indicator will turn off.
