Low Tire Pressure Light

A little over a month ago I had my truck at the dealer for an oil change. It happen to be a cold morning a few days before the service and my low tire pressure light had come on so I asked them to check it out.
I was waiting for my truck and noticed it was sitting in the delivery area so I asked what was up. The service manager told me they were waiting for the tech to reset the light. He told me it was a free service for the first year but after that there would be a charge. I told him that I assumed that after the tire pressure was adjusted the light would reset automatically. He said no that it would need to be brought in for service. WTF!!
Two days ago we hit 13 degrees over night so low and behold when I get in the truck that morning the light is back on. What are we suppose to do, hang around our trucks with a tire gauge and a air hose every time the temperature changes? Is there a way or tool that I buy to do this myself? I don't have the time to stop by the dealer every time the weather changes.

Yeah, they are full of ****. The TPMS is part of the vehicle warranty, and are fully warranted for the usual 36000 miles. As for the light, it should go off once you fill the tires to 35 and drive for awhile. Or just wait until it warms up.

+1 on them being full of it. The light will reset on its own after pressure is back.

Point is they don't need to be "reset". TPMS will do it own its own. For free.

I wish I could turn the TPMS off. With mid to upper 70s one week, and 30s and 40s the next, it is impossible to keep that stupid light happy. Mine just lights up, but my wife's Pathfinder has an audible alarm similar to the key in the ignition noise.
