What air pressure did you fill them too? 65 is too high with no load. I could keep my tire light off with 45 psi and the light load engaged. YOu may have to play with the tire pressure a little.

What pressure are they inflated to. Check your drivers door jam it has a sticker with the stated high and low inflation pressures. Did you keep your stock rims?

What "light" came on? What truck is this on because 95's dont have tire pressure sensors or a light load button...

In bold at the top of his post he states it is an 09 and it has to be a 2500 because it has tpms on it.

Yep you need to satisfy the tpms system with tire pressure that is close to the factory settings. Factory are 65 in the front and 80 in the rear for regular load and 65 in front and 45 rear for light load button. There is a section in here that is a sticky that covers this. http://www.cumminsforum.com/forum/6-...formation.html Read this it will help you alot.

Correct Settings

I have an 09 2500 as well. The fronts are 60 and rears 70 psi for normal load. With the light load button pushed the rear can be dropped to 45 psi. Did you put load range D or E tires on? The trucks come stock with load range E tires which have a higher psi recommendation. I don't think load range D tires are recommended to have 70 psi, you will have to check the sidewall.
