Flat tyre warning light finally out
Firstly hi guys, back into a gun metal grey MY14 R35 after a three year hiatus. The GTR boomerang eventually got me!
Anyway, this has probably been shared before however I was under the impression that the only way to reset the flat tyre warning light was either to take the car to a main dealer and have their diagnostics reset it or use a Cobb accessport and reset it that way.
Anyway my car was in to have new front tyres fitted as the ones on it where leaking air from the bead (hence the warning light) and have seen better days so time to throw them in the bin and replace them. The garage phoned me today to say the car was ready and that they had managed to reset the warning light ...interesting.
Turns out they plugged their Snap-on diagnostic tool in and managed to clear the code that way. Apparently the TPMS wasn't happy but a quick drive round the block and they reset and are now functioning correctly. Viola.
As I said, possibly old news but maybe worth sharing, especially if you don't live near a specialist

I've said before that this was possible, don't think you can do it with a basic ODBC reader though it has to be a proper one.
Doing it is not enough - it has to be done right.

Any OBD reader that can read and clear DTC codes will do the trick.
