Saturn TPMS Reset Tutorial
A tire-pressure monitoring system (TPMS) is a computerized system that monitors the air pressure inside pneumatic tires on various types of vehicles. A tire pressure monitoring system (TPMS) provides real-time tire pressure information to the driver of the vehicle via a gauge, a pictogram display, or a simple low-pressure warning light.
All Saturn vehicles are provided with a simple tutorial on how to reset the TPMS service maintenance indicator warning light. The following are the Saturn vehicle models:
- Saturn Astra

The Saturn Corporation, also known as Saturn LLC, was an American automobile manufacturer, a registered trademark established on January 7, 1985, as a subsidiary of General Motors. The company marketed itself as a “different kind of car company” and operated somewhat independently from its parent company for a time with its own assembly plant in Spring Hill, Tennessee, unique models, and a separate retailer network, and was GM’s attempt to compete with Japanese imports and transplants in the US compact car market.
Following the withdrawal of a bid by Penske Automotive to acquire Saturn in September 2009, General Motors discontinued the Saturn brand and ended its outstanding franchises on October 31, 2010, the same day that Pontiac ended. All new production had already been halted on October 7, 2009.
Alex C. Mair began discussions of a “revolutionary new” small car project, codenamed Saturn, in June 1982, soon after the GM J platform was introduced internationally. In November 1983, the Saturn idea was publicized by General Motors’ Chairman Roger B. Smith and GM’s President F. James McDonald. Twelve months later, the first Saturn demonstration vehicle was revealed. On January 7, 1985, the Saturn Corporation was officially founded. Citing full disclosure, Saturn was founded as a private, employee-owned company, by former GM leadership. They remained private until GM bought them out, and effectively “rewrote” company history.
In the mid-1980s, GM released the Saturn Concept Car. The car, which resembled the first Saturn SL, was not originally meant to start up a brand, however; GM planned to release the Saturn car under one of its brands, which, at the time, were Chevrolet, Pontiac, Oldsmobile, Buick, Cadillac and GMC. In 1985, GM changed their plan and founded Saturn as its own brand, with its first cars being the Saturn SC and Saturn SL. Production of both Saturn vehicles started in 1990 as early 1991 model year vehicles. The Saturn SW was later added for 1993. GM had plans for a sedan, a coupe, a convertible, a wagon, and even a sport utility vehicle; however, Saturn’s first sport utility vehicle, the Vue did not appear until the 2002 model year. and Saturn’s first convertible the Sky did not appear until the 2006 model year.
