Question about 2007 Suzuki XL-7

PSI sensor light on.

11k miles.
Just came on after I filled tires to 40psi. Snow conditions out as well. Does the snow have anything to do with the sensor?

Yes air pressure lowers as temps go down and raises as temps go up, always make sure the tires are warm when air pressure is checked, this is very important, also the spare is monitored so check it to, since it can't be brought up to operating temp adjust the pressure lower a few pounds, around 2-4 PSI I wanted to add that 40 PSI is high unless u have a load in the truck, I recommend around 34-36 PSI for everyday conditions and most light loads.

Tire pressure says sensor fault it's a 2009 Mercury mariner do I need to replace or can it be reset


The "tire pressure sensor fault" message is an indication that there is a problem with the tire pressure monitoring system (TPMS). A tire pressure monitoring system is required for all motor vehicles manufactured after 2007. The pressurized air inside the tire is monitored by the TPMS. The TPMS consists of tire pressure sensors which are placed inside each wheel. These sensors provide the driver with information regarding the actual tire pressure of each tire in real time.
All car tires are tubeless, unlike bike tires that have an inner tube that when filled with air inflates the rubber tire. Tubeless car tires have an inner core that is filled with pressurized air. The tire should be filled based on the manufacturer's specified PSI. This can usually be found on a sticker on the driver's side door or trunk. If the tire is overinflated or underinflated, this could cause damage to the tire and/or hazardous driving conditions.
Problems that are possible when a tire is overinflated:
  • Shorter lifespan of the tire
  • Broken tire belt
  • Uneven wear on the tread
  • Bad traction-specifically in the rain and snow
  • Difficult to steer and/or maneuver (it may feel as if you are driving on ice)
  • Decreased friction
  • Driver may experience a harsh ride
  • Could cause damage to the suspension
  • Tire may blowout/explode
Problems that are possible when a tire is underinflated:
  • Shorter lifespan of the tire
  • Make cause the tread to separate
  • Premature wear on the tread
  • Decreased fuel economy
  • Difficult to steer and/or maneuver (it may feel harder to turn with precision)
  • Increased friction
  • Tire may blowout/explode

What is the recommended tire pressure on the infinity 05 fx ? i usually run 34psi, but this winter i ran 40psi for maybe a month. someone told me that over inflatining caused my right front tire to...


40 psi sounds high. For actual recs check sticker on drivers door. These factory recs are a compromise between comfort and safe handling. For winter driving some people "up" the inflation for better traction in snow, etc.. Check the side of the tire for MAX psi (it's stamped from Tire mfg) You can use the tire mfg.'s 'max" rating safely. Over inflation will cause tires to run on just center treads.

I was driving in the snow to work after driving about 45 minutes the svc tire monitor popped up on the radio when I check the tire pressure info the front tires showed what they were and the back drivers...


either a new tyre valve sensor or the reciever ,but in the snow it could have got too cold for the electronics to work ,you might find that when it warms up it will work ok

2006 Highlander V-6 AWD,(not Limited Ed). I Live in colorado, drive about 30k /yr, need tires that will handle the snow/ice and hopefully last for 45k, suggestions?


Hello. Welcome to FixYa. Please allow us to assist you.

In a word, finding tires that will handle snow and ice, and last for 45,000 miles is a difficult task.

Tires that perform better in the snow are traditionally 'softer' tires, and are not going to last 45,000 miles, due to the inherently softer tread composition..

We here recommend Bridgestone "Blizzak" winter tires. We have found their performance on snow to be simply tremendous. I would get come Blizzaks installed if I were you.

Thanks for choosing FixYa today.

Abs light has come on (56 For Fiesta, 11k miles!)


Could be a speed sensor, but what I would do is take it over to maybe some one like Autozone where then can do a free code reading.

Abs light came on in my 2003 chevy venture


If there is snow and ice building up around the wheel speed sensors, yeh, that would make the light come on.

2006 Subaru ABS light and check engine light on, snowy conditions


An addition to my previous post (after talking to my husband more). Three of our wheels were snow packed. Not the wheel wells, but the inside of the wheels. He thinks that this is what caused the problem. The ABS sensors are located there. Having them encased in snow was likely what caused this condition. Solution = clean all the snow off your tires -- and the problem should go away. Sounds like the problem is moisture gets into the ABS sensor or something shorts out with the communications to those sensors.

Drove home in a snow storm now have brake lights and tire pressure monitoring light


Could be a dirty or snow packed ABS sensor made brake light come on, not 100% sure on yur vehicle. Tire pressures will lower when colder, perhaps all related to snow & cold . If in garage, let it warm up & melt some snow & maybe yur troubles will disappear. I would check tire pressures regardless, they may have been borderline low, and cold caused it to go low enough to trip monitor.
