TPMS Problems...

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.

Sounds like a winner to me. This past Tuesday was the first rainy day in a long time, and the first time the temps didnt get out of the 70's since probably around March or April. My TPMS light came on so I checked em out. All the tires were atleast 3 to 4 pounds low and one was 5 (probably the one setting it off). Im glad they are so sensitive, I didnt expect 5 lbs to set it off. But it keeps me on top of the condition of my tires.

I live in San Francisco and the weather is pretty unpredictable here sometimes. One day it'll be around 75 and next day it'll drop to below 55...needless to say, I've had that problem a couple times.

Light is ON

I don't know about cold weather!
Here in orlando the temperature during the days is in the 80's and 90's. I have checked my air pressure with different gauges, cheap and expensive ones and the tire pressure is set at 35 psi give or take one pound depending on which gauge I use and my Tire pressure light is ON. Even after running at highway speeds it is still on and the pressure goes even higher.

Sounds like you need a visit to the dealer. Something is not right.

i do, but once i touch a 100 for about a minute it goes away! haha. that thing is soo stupid. id rather not have the added weight of those things on there. i dont need a comp to tell me my tires are low. not to mention a exclamation point flashing in orange is annoying. id air my tires up to i think it was 35(i did 36) just to b sure but not too full, and it took it almost 20 miles to go off. if/when i change rims, its going bye bye and im going to have the dealer turn it off if they can. uh trucks now days.

I had some trouble with them working lose after getting new wheels, for about a week I had to snug them up to stop them from leaking. After that no problems other than temp, so I just run about 38psi, that stopped the cold weather light.

I had my tires filled with Nitrogen about 2 months ago. The light has not been on since.
