    The owner's manual gives pretty worthless information. It simply says, "press the tire pressure reset button." Great! Care to tell us where it is?
    After hunting around, and finding the two previous posts almost as helpful and as a cup of sand in the desert, I found it.
    The tire pressure reset button is above the accelerator pedal, just below the knee airbag under the driver's side dash. Once you crawl under there you'll see it (it helps to bring a flashlight with you.) Fill the tires with the correct air pressure, and then just hold the button down for 5 seconds with the ignition on and the parking brake set, with the vehicle in park and it will reset. Be sure to fill up the spare as well, as this will set it off, too. There is NO need to reset each individual wheel, and the sensors will not reset themselves like the previous posts inaccurately stated.
    Hope this helps!

    The procedure should be in the owners manual. It is time consuming and each wheel is set separately. Good luck

    By filling the tires with air to the correct psi, the sensors should reset themselves.

    The reset button is under the dash.

    Resetting the low tire pressure warning is actually very easy to do and does not require any contortions or flashlights etc. Just an easy braille method.

    As stated in other replies, the reset button IS under the dash generally near your right knee. There are three "controls" in the general area: 1. 3/8 in. diameter knob to adjust the beep volume. 2. 3/16" diameter Smart Key system disable button. 3. 3/16" Low Tire Pressure warning reset.

    1. Turn the ignition switch to ON and you'll see the red warning triangle and the low tire pressure message.
    2. Turn your right hand palm up under the dash with your "button pushing" finger directly under the ignition switch.
    3. Move your hand directly forward towards the radiator until your fingers reach the end of the lower dash.
    4. Keep moving your hand slowly forward and feel upward with your "button" finger and you will encounter the 3/8 in. diameter beep volume knob.
    5. Now move your finger left just a little and you will find buttons 2. and 3. above. The low tire pressure reset is the button closest to you.
    6. Press it for 5 seconds or so and the light warning will go out.
    7 Now congratulate yourself for doing this the easy painless way.
