Flat tire warning lamp reset

I tried to do a search for this but surprisingly could not find a previous thread on it, but anyway, I recently needed a flat replaced so I got two new tires an independent tire place. My parents picked the car up for me and when I got it back I noticed the light is not reset. Does anyone know how it is done or where to find out? The light is yellow not red but it never goes out.

Not too many threads for things that are covered well enough in the Owner's Manual.

But here's one:


So the reset procedure after regular tire inflation adjustment is the same as when you have had a flat.

The only difference is the indicator light already being on when you press the button for 3 to 5 seconds in the second scenario.

It should go out quite quickly, or after driving a short distance.

If it doesn't, recheck the inflation pressures, and try the reset again.

Tire shops are unlikely to get into doing this for customers as reset procedures vary.
