How can I reset the tire pressure light on a 04 Freestar?

It has nothing to do with the pressure, it seems that every time I simply take off a tire the light goes on and I have no way of resetting it. I can remove the little message that shows up by the odometer but not the warning light. It seems that the only way to have it done is to have a mechanic get at it.

Is there a trick to this?

Check all the pressures first and make sure none are over or underinflated. Usually after a few drive cycles, it will reset. Also look in the Owner's manual and see if instructions are there.

Another thing to try is to turn the key to the "ON" position, and take a good, strong magnet and hold to each valve stem for 5 seconds each (This works on Expedition) and see if that works.

I will check at work tomorrow to see if special tools are needed and get a "For Sure" answer to ya!

Never mind above post

Here is the info.................................

Vehicles Without Message Center..............................
To reset the system, press and hold the odometer reset button and wait for the "TIRE PRESSURE SET" light to illuminate. Continue to press the button for three seconds, then release. After three seconds, the low tire pressure warning lamp will flash three times, indicating that the low tire warning system reset procedure is complete.

Vehicles With Message Center.....................................
To reset the system, press and hold the SETUP button and wait for the message center to display "RESET FOR SYSTEM CHECK". Then press the RESET button and wait for the message center to display "HOLD RESET TO RELEARN". Press and hold the RESET button for three seconds. The message "HOLD RESET TO RELEARN" and the low tire warning lamp will flash three times, indicating the reset procedure is complete.
