I know i made a post about mine in the past, but it seems like every couple days theres a new post about tpms lights going off, and the same advice is given every time. i will only post about this once, hopefully the mods will sticky this as we all know nobody knows how to use a search button these days.
the weather is starting to cool down and the air much colder, especially in the mornings. the colder air has less pressure, and this affects the tire pressure aswell. what is happeneing is the air pressure is probably just above the line so to speak when it comes to pressure. it has just enough to keep the light from going off, so when the air gets cooler, the temps drop and it throws the light. in order to remedy this you can either wait till it warms up, or just put a few (2-3) more lbs in each tire. this will bump you up farther from the light's threshold, therefore allowing for the temp drops and the tire to be at optimum pressure.
furthermore, when you buy aftermarket wheels and tires, you can transfer the sensors to most new wheels. in fact many dealerships and wheel shops will transfer them for you in the name of customer service.
lastly, THE SPARE TIRE DOES NOT HAVE A SENSOR. even if it DID have one in it, it would not be read by the computer.
