    It would help to know what truck you have.... If you are talking about tire pressure sensors, my 05 has a button below the steering column to reset it. As I recall you hold the button in, turn the key on, wait for 3 seconds or so and light will flash, release button, turn off key, done.
    It is explained in the owners manual. You HAVE read it haven't you?
    Cheers

    Each sensor has a number on it that needs to be programmed into the computer in the truck. The wheel/tire needs to be broke down (to get the code number) to program it. A tire shop broke one of mine when they put on new tires. They had to replace it ($100) and they had to pay the dealer ($75) to program it.
