    what kind of car is it, you can't fix a tire sensor, so either they replaced it and didn't program it, or they broke it. tire monitor programming can only be done at dealer depending on the vehicle. since you have this listed under chevy i can most likely tell you to do it if dealer tools are not needed.

Hello vettechgirl2,
When you replace a tire on a vehicle equiped with a tire pressure sensor system, there are several things you need to be aware of. Hopefully the tire company was careful when changing the tire. The valve stem sensor is about $100.00+ to replace on most vehicles equiped with them. On newer vehicles the tires are filled with nitrogen to keep corrosion down on the sensor. When a tire is replaced the sensor system has to be reset a day or two after the replacement, this allows for breaking in of the new tire. All the tires should be checked for proper manufacturer inflation before resetting the system, including the spare if there is an inflated on on the car. Then the internal computer control can be reset. The owners manual should have instructions on how to reset the sensor program, there is usually a small button under the dash that is used for the reset. Once reset, your system should work as before the flat. If it doesn't stay reset, then the tire place didn't do the installation correctly damaging the sensor or the tire is loosing pressure. Check with your car dealer to see what the tires were originally filled with so you don't mix gases when equalizing the pressure. If your owners manual does not have the reset instructions the dealer may have to set it electronically. Regards, rcampsr

My scv tire monitor message comes on. What does it mean and how do I fix it?


The air pressure in one of your tires is bad or the valve stem/sensor needs replaced. Hope this helps.

Not sure what "exp 18" means...but the Low Tire Pressure or tire pressure monitoring on the Aurora is done via the wheel speed sensors. Anytime you fill or add air to the tire you will need to reset the tire pressure monitoring - not just the current indicator, but go to gage->tire pressure and reset.
If any of the wheel speed sensors are having issue, this can effect the reporting to the tire pressure monitoring. If you have an ODB-II scanner that can read ABS codes this is very helpful as it will tell you exactly which sensors are having problems.

The engine light means you have a code stored that can be read.
A place like Autozone will read it for free.
Only with the code can we tell if it is serious or minor.

Hi, check all tire pressures, they need to be as close as possible to what the door panel/jam list for recommend inflation psi. If not this service tire monitor will light on dash.

Unfortunaltly you can't turn the light off unless the repair is made. It is a safety feature. And yes, the little monitor inside the rim has gone bad or cracked. These are easily replaced by a tire technision, but the cost of the (TPMS)tire moniter is pricey.

Recurring low pressure light and no clear issue


Note that the spare tire pressure is also monitored. If all of the ires (including the spare) are at the proper inflation pressure, and the light remains on, you may have a non-responsive tire pressure sensor; if so, that needs to be checked by a Toyota Dealer.

SVC Tire Monitor


If this warning came up soon after the tire was replaced then the most likely cause is the tire installer damaged the pressure sensor inside the tire. They are easy to damage.
