After installing aftermarket HID xenon headlights with ballasts (9007) on my 2007 Frontier Crew cab V6 4.0 ltr. My Low tire pressure warning lights started blinking. and stayed ON after a minute.

I think it might be the ballasts interferring with the TPMS wireless receiver

Anyone ever come across this problem?

Please help!?

It sounds unrelated to me. First things first, did you check your pressures? From what I understand, solid from the get go means it's not sending them or not programmed, but blinking indicates it knows they're there but one or more is low or not communicating properly. A good test if pressures are right would be to disconnect the ballasts and see if you still get the same result from the TPMS.

since you've not provided details on your install, it's hard to say. unplug/disconnect
your new headlights from the wiring system. see if the TPRS warning appears. if
so, then it may not be the HID fog lights or ballasts. work backwards...

Sounds like one or more of your tpms batteries died.

Checked the tire pressure. They're good. I unplugged them and checked to see if the warning light would go out. Drove around a few miles with the ballasts unplugged. But no difference. I think I'm going to see my mechanic and reset the sensors.

The store i purchased them at did the installation. That's why i couldn't give anymore details. I noticed the low tire pressure warning light at night when driving home from work. I wanted to do some research myself before returning to the store

Do you think that is possible. They're not even 6months old.

I went back to the store. I turned out be a faulty left ballast. Scanned the car. Left front tire pressure sensor gave an error. Had it reset. Been okay this whole day. Fingers crossed
