Cluster warning lights

Whenever this warning light or any other stays on in the dash it is indicating that the systems control module (or the system sensor in the case of lights like low oil pressure, door open indicators etc.) has detected a fault, it then disables the system (this applies to ABS,TCS, TCM, SRS, TPMS and BCM faults and others) as long as the light is on. You must now have the dealer hook up a special electronic diagnostic tool and "scan" the system for the fault code that is stored for the problem(s)

SOURCE: 2007 yukon tpms keeps blinking to check tire pressure

The TPMS is a pain in the you know what. Have you changed tire sizes? There could be a bad sensor and may need replaced. We continually get problems all the time with the TPMS. We have reset then they reset again.

SOURCE: My tpms light stays on and i checked the tire

Are you sure??, The pressure is listed on the drivers door frame. Ck the pressure COLD. If unable to check cold, then when tires are warm add 4 psi. Sometimes the spare tire has a sensor, look at the valve stem and see if it looks like the other wheels, if it does, ck the pressure there also.

SOURCE: New tire installed at Discount Tire and a "tpms

The "Rebuild Kit" is just a set of seals, new mounting nut and sometimes, a new valve cap. The sensor must be removed to dismount the tire from the rim without breaking the sensor. (The valve stem is actually part of the sensor - this is why you shouldn't have a charge for "Valve Stem" on your bill.) Installing the sensor with new seals, nut, and valve cap did not cause your light to come on. Breaking the sensor during removal or installation could cause it. Over-inflating the tires can also cause the light to come on in some vehicles. Any way you look at it, they should fix the problem and reset your TPMS Computer to get the light turned off without any argument unless the problem is being caused by a sensor on a wheel other than the one that was replaced. (In this case, it would be pure coincidence that the sensor decided to give up the ghost immediately after the other tire was replaced...not real likely, but I've had similar things happen to cars I've worked on.)

SOURCE: why TPMS light stays on in my CRV

After checking and adjusting the tire pressures, The vehicle must be driven at speeds above 28 Mph (45 km/h) for approximately 20 minutes for the TPMS to receive the updated information from the tire pressure sensors in the tires. It will then reset itself.

If you have driven the vehicle, and the indicator will still not go off, then you need to take your car in for service so the malfunction in the TPMS system can be properly diagnosed.

Tpms light stays on, why


Hi , I work in the tire industry and see this prob occur from time to time .If After trying the solutions posted above your problem persist you may need to reprogram your tpms system completely . You don't necessaraly have to go to the dealership for l this . I recommended you take it to a pro tire shop as Dealers themselves usually outsource these type of problems to local tire shops anyway. Have the tire shop also check each sensor individually to make sure they are still sending signal because Sensors are battery powered and eventually have to be replaced on most vehicles .

Tpms light on, dic indicated low tp fr, inflated to proper pressure,tpms stays on, dic wont update


TPMS - TIRE PRESSURE MONITOR WARNING LIGHT
NOTE: Tire pressure rises and falls depending on heat caused by vehicle's operation and the outside temperature. If outside temperature is low, the air inside the tire may cool, causing a lower tire inflation pressure. This may cause the low tire pressure warning light to illuminate.

When the tire pressure warning light comes on, immediately check the air pressure of all tires and adjust to the specified pressure. Make sure the warning light goes off. If the warning light stays on or flashes, there is a malfunction in the TPM system. See appropriate manufacturer service information.

Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I`ll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

Thank you for using FixYa, have a nice day.

I've had my tire pressure checked numerous times, but I can't get the tire pressure light on my dashboard to go off.


I would find a shop that has a TPMS tool that can read the TPMS senor data. It is possible for one of the sensors to be sending a false low pressure reading.

TIRE PRESSURE LIGHT STAYING ON


You either have low tire pressure in a tire
A bad tire pressure sensor in a wheel
Or just need to reset the TPMS,if you rotated your tires.

Go to a shop with a TPMS tool or scanner with TPMS software, and have it reset.

Tire trouble light has been on since I had the tires rotated, but there is no problem with the air pressure. Light stays on even though tire pressure is fine.


after rotating tires equipped with tpms, a relearn must be performed so the sensors know where they are. a tpms reprogrammer is required for this.
