Sometimes the stem corrodes and the metal caps are hard to remove and sometimes can break the stem, need stems can be installed and sensors reused, the sensors screw on to the end of the stem, have you tried to spray wd 40 on caps and then with some pliers try to unscrew them?

SOURCE: Losing Tire Pressure for left rear tire repeatedly

most likely there is a small hole or crack in the tire, and when you drive the rubber gets hot and losens up allowing the hot air inside that is expanding to escape. my recomendation is to replace the tire. better safe than sorry when it comes to tires. good luck to ya

2010 Chevrolet Camaro... My TPMS (Tire Pressure Monitoring Sensor) light came on blinking and car is telling me to have it serviced. only 3 of my 4 tires are registering on the system. Is there anyway to...


There is a Technical Service Bulletin (TSB) for your vehicle stating that if the light is blinking and if there are dashes (- -) on only one or two tire pressure readings, then the tire presure monitoring system should be put through a "Relearn" or "matching" process. Then if any of the tire pressure sensors do not respond while relearning, the sensor in that tire should be replaced.

The TPMS matching process is outlined below:

1. Set the parking brake.
2. Turn the ignition switch to ON/RUN with the engine off.
3. Go to the TPM vehicle information screen on the DIC. Press set to relearn the sensors. The horn sounds twice to signal the receiver is in relearn mode and Tire Learning Active message displays on the Driver Information Center screen.
4. Start with the driver side front tire.
5. Remove the valve cap from the valve stem. Activate the TPMS sensor by increasing or decreasing the tire's air pressure for 10 seconds, or until a horn chirp sounds. The horn chirp, which can take up to 30 seconds to sound, confirms that the TPMS sensor identification code has been matched to this tire position.
6. Proceed to the passenger side front tire, and repeat the procedure in Step 5.
7. Proceed to the passenger side rear tire, and repeat the procedure in Step 5.
8. Proceed to the driver side rear tire, and repeat the procedure in Step 5.
9. After hearing the confirming horn chirp, for the driver side rear tire, the horn sounds two more times to signal the tire learning mode is no longer active. Turn the ignition switch to LOCK/OFF.
10. Set all four tires to the recommended air pressure level as indicated on the tire and loading information label.
11. Put the valve caps back on the valve stems.
The tires air pressure will not appear on the screen until you start driving the vehicle.

My 2006 tacoma the low air pressure light is on I put air in all the tires and pressed the odometer button to try and reset the computer but it did not work.


the odometer button has nothing to do with the tires. After you set the tires to the correct pressure, it should go off by itself., sometimes it takes a while, few miles. Be sure to check the spare. some trucks have a sensor there, you will be able to look at it and tell if it has a sensor by the construction of the valve stem. If all tires are good, and the light does not go off, the dealer will need to check it out. You say you put air in, but not what pressure. The pressure spec is on the drivers door jamb. I would go 2 psi more than the sticker.

I can't get the air out of my tires to replace them. someone put the wrong caps on and I am woundering will this mess up the sensors? If so do they have to be replaced when you replace the tires? How much...


Valve stems typically cost anywhere from $.59 to $2.00 to $3.00 a piece depending on where you go.

Sears would probably charge about $2 or $3 for a valve stem in one tire.

Most likely you have a bad tire sensor. These sensors are part of the valve stem. The dealer probably just holds the tire inflation reset button and not uses the tool. You would have to go to somebody with a scanner to read the sensor to tell you which one is faulty.

I have a 2007 nissian pathfinder 4wd an the tire valve stem broke off that has the sensor on it for low air pressure.how do i reset the computer after i replace the sensor


Normally the sensor will reset after a few miles of driving. If it doesn't, most reputable tire shops (probably including the one that is putting in the new valve stem) can reset the computer for a fee.

How to reset the tire pressure on a 08' chevy tahoe?


TPMS Sensor Matching Procedure

Each TPMS sensor has a unique identification code. Any time you rotate your vehicle's tires or replace one or more of the TPMS sensors, the identification codes will need to be matched to the new tire/wheel position. The sensors are matched to the tire/wheel positions in the following order: driver side front tire, passenger side front tire, passenger side rear tire, and driver side rear tire using a TPMS diagnostic tool. See your dealer/retailer for service.

The TPMS sensors can also be matched to each tire/wheel position by increasing or decreasing the tire's air pressure. If increasing the tire's air pressure, do not exceed the maximum inflation pressure indicated on the tire's sidewall.

To decrease air-pressure out of a tire you can use the pointed end of the valve cap, a pencil-style air pressure gage, or a key.

You have two minutes to match the first tire/wheel position, and five minutes overall to match all four tire/wheel positions. If it takes longer than two minutes, to match the first tire and wheel, or more than five minutes to match all four tire and wheel positions the matching process stops and you need to start over.

The TPMS sensor matching process is outlined below:

  1. Set the parking brake.
  2. Turn the ignition switch to ON/RUN with the engine off.
  3. Press the Remote Keyless Entry (RKE) transmitter's LOCK and UNLOCK buttons at the same time for approximately five seconds. The horn sounds twice to signal the receiver is in relearn mode and TIRE LEARNING ACTIVE message displays on the DIC screen.
  4. Start with the driver side front tire.
  5. Remove the valve cap from the valve cap stem. Activate the TPMS sensor by increasing or decreasing the tire's air pressure for five seconds, or until a horn chirp sounds. The horn chirp, which may take up to 30 seconds to sound, confirms that the sensor identification code has been matched to this tire and wheel position.
  6. Proceed to the passenger side front tire, and repeat the procedure in Step 5.
  7. Proceed to the passenger side rear tire, and repeat the procedure in Step 5.
  8. Proceed to the driver side rear tire, and repeat the procedure in Step 5. The horn sounds two times to indicate the sensor identification code has been matched to the driver side rear tire, and the TPMS sensor matching process is no longer active. The TIRE LEARNING ACTIVE message on the DIC display screen goes off.
  9. Turn the ignition switch to LOCK/OFF.
  10. Set all four tires to the recommended air pressure level as indicated on the Tire and Loading Information label.
  11. Put the valve caps back on the valve stems.

Low pressure light staying on .


the system will monitor all 5 tires. if one is 3-4 pounds differant or 1 of the tires are missing it will come on. doesn't matter what tires you have because the valve stem does the work.
