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: 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.)

How do I reset TPMS light focus 14


Use this if you're installing winter wheels/tires that have sensors already installed, or even if you are just doing a tire rotation. Not sure if this has been posted before. I tried searching but didn't see it posted anywhere. No need to go and buy the TPMS learning tool.

1) Make sure your tiresare inflated to the recommended psi. Mine is 40psi.

2) Turn ignition to the on position. If you have a push button start, push the start button without pressing the brake pedal.

3) Push the hazard light button 6 times. The horn should honk and you should see "Train left front tire" in the LCD display between the tach and speedo.

4) Release air pressure in the front left tireuntil you hear the horn honk. The LCD display should now read "Train right front tire".

5) Release air pressure in the right front tire until you hear the horn honk.

6) Repeat for the the right rear tire, and then the left rear tire.

7) You should now see "Training Complete" in the LCD display.

8) Fill your tiresback up to the recommended pressure.

Enjoy!

Tire Pressure Warning is on and yet the tires are full of air


Hello,
Maybe we can help.

Set your tire pressure to the recommended factory air pressures. (to find this look at the placard that is located in your driver side door jam.) After setting all 4 tires to the correct pressure drive normally. If the TPMS (Tire Pressure Monitoring System) light doesn't turn off within 24 hours have the TPMS sensors checked at a local wheel and tire retailer or at the dealer. TPMS sensors have batteries in them that last an average of 5-7 years. If one of the batteries is dead it will trigger the system.

FYI, all of our stores can quickly troubleshoot your TPMS system and we stock most replacement TPMS sensors if you end up needing a new one. To find a local Discount Tire near you please visit www.discounttire.com/.

My 06 nissan frontier with flat tire light on even all tire are 35psi or more .


Step 1:

You could have a bad tpms sensor in one of the tires here's how to check it

Step 2:

Reading TPMS codes and clearing them
There is a simple procedure to perform a self diagnostic and clear the codes.

1) Turn IGN switch to ON.
2) Locate the TPMS warning check connector. It is a single loose wire with a connector located under the dash next to the steering column. It may be bundled with the OBDII diagnostic connector.
3) Using a suitable piece of bare wire inserted into the connector (a paperclip will do), momentarily ground the wire to the chassis.

NOTE: If you are uncomfortable doing this, then don't. You could damage your vehicle if the wrong wire is grounded.

Step 3:

4) The TPMS low tire pressure warning light will blink error codes as follows:

5sec. ON - 5sec. OFF
Long (1 sec) blink = First digit (2 blinks = 2)
Short (0.2 sec) blink = Second digit (ie 3 short blinks = 3)

There is a 2 second pause between multiple codes.The cycle will keep repeating starting with 5sec. ON

Codes:

15 - Front LH tire pressure drops to 26 psi or less.
16 - Front RH tire pressure drops to 26 psi or less.
17 - Rear RH tire pressure drops to 26 psi or less.
18 - Rear LH tire pressure drops to 26 psi or less.
21 - Data from front LH transmitter can not be receive.
22 - Data from front RH transmitter can not be receive.
23 - Data from Rear RH transmitter can not be receive.
24 - Data from Rear LH transmitter can not be receive.
31 - Checksum data from front LH transmitter is malfunctioning.
32 - Checksum data from front RH transmitter is malfunctioning.
33 - Checksum data from rear RH transmitter is malfunctioning.
34 - Checksum data from rear RH transmitter is malfunctioning.

5 short blinks - System is OK.

5) To clear the codes, turn the ignition OFF.

My Cadillac devil 2004 is prompting me saying"tire monitoring sensor" isn't wiring or need to be replaced. I'm a do it yourself kind of guy is this something I can fix myself ? And what's my best plan


The TPMS monitors tire pressure and sends a signal to the Cadillac's computer when there is low tire pressure. When the tire pressure is restored, the Cadillac's TPMS should reset itself. However, if it does not, the TPMS light on the dash will stay lit. When this happens, you need to know how to manually reset the TPMS light and sensors.

Instructions

1 Press and hold the tip odometer button on the gauge cluster.

2 Wait until the display screen brings up the settings menu.

3 Release the "reset" button and press it again to scroll through various settings.

4 Keep pressing the "reset" button until you come to the TPMS setting.

5 Press and hold the "reset" button until the TPMS light on the dash resets.

Tire pressure senors will not turn off in my 2007 suzuki forenza what could it be is their a way to reset them


There is a way to reset all computer memory on most cars. First disconnect the negative terminal on the battery and then the positive. Touch both together and hold the for approximately 30 seconds. This resets all PROM memory on the vehicle. If it is like most vehicles then you drive it down the road for a few miles and the first 4 TPMS sensors it sees it will learn as the cars. NOTE: this may or may not work, it is just a suggestion. Will not work if there are problems with any of the TPMS components. This is only a reset with all 4 sensors working.

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 front wheel sensor shows low tire pressure, but it is fine. Is there a reset for that?


If its reading low and the tire pressure is correct there is a problem with that sensor. Typically they need to be replaced in order to correct the problem. A TPMS tool capable of displaying TPMS sensor data would confirm the bad reading.

They display the tire pressure as a convenience. They don't have to display the pressures and many makes/models do not.

The level of sophistication with these systems is slowly improving. Many newer models will automatically know where the tire is and display it correctly. Unfortunately yours need to be relearned manually after every tire rotation which is very common with earlier systems. It is assumed that this is done after every tire rotation which would then make the displayed tire locations correct.

If you are confident that the correct tire location is being displayed than I wouldn't see any issue with replacing that sensor. If you are not confident the correct tire location is being displayed than it wouldn't be a bad idea to do a relearn procedure.

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. Press and hold the Remote Keyless Entry (RKE)
transmitter's LOCK and UNLOCK buttons, at the
same time, for about five seconds to start the TPMS
learn mode. The horn sounds twice indicating the
TPMS receiver is ready and in learn mode.
4. Start with the driver side front tire. The driver side
front turn signal also comes on to indicate that
corner's sensor is ready to be learned.
5. Remove the valve cap from the tire's valve
stem. Activate the TPMS sensor by increasing
or decreasing the tire's air pressure for about
eight seconds. The horn chirp, can take up to
30 seconds to sound. It chirps one time and then
all the turn signals flash one time to confirm the
sensor identification code has been matched to
the tire/wheel position.
6. The passenger side front turn signal comes on to
indicate that corner sensor is ready to be learned.
Proceed to the passenger side front tire and
repeat the procedure in Step 5.
7. The passenger side rear turn signal comes on to
indicate that corner sensor is ready to be learned.
Proceed to the passenger side rear tire and
repeat the procedure in Step 5.
8. The driver side rear turn signal comes on to
indicate that corner sensor is ready to be learned.
Proceed to the driver side rear tire, and repeat
the procedure in Step 5.
9. After hearing the single horn chirp for the driver
side rear tire, two additional horn chirps sound
to indicate the tire learning process is done.
Turn the ignition switch to LOCK/OFF.
If no tires are learned after entering the TPMS learn
mode, or if communication with the receiver stops, or
if the time limit has expired, turn the ignition switch to
LOCK/OFF and start over beginning with Step 2.
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.

This info can also be found on page 5-66 of your owners manual.

Service tire monitor on what is the problem? how do you reset the system?


TIRE PRESSURE MONITOR SYSTEM
The Tire Pressure Monitor System (TPMS) uses radio and sensor technology to check tire pressure levels. If your vehicle has this feature, sensors are mounted on each tire and wheel assembly, except the spare tire. The TPMS sensors monitor the air pressure in your vehicle's tires and transmit tire pressure readings to a receiver located in the vehicle.

The TPMS is designed to alert the driver, if a low tire pressure condition exists. This system also allows the driver to check tire pressure levels using the Driver Information Center (DIC).

When a low tire pressure condition is detected, the TPMS displays the "CHECK TIRE PRESSURE" warning message on the DIC, and at the same time illuminates the low tire pressure warning symbol.

You may notice, during cooler weather conditions, that the tire pressure monitor light, located on the instrument panel cluster, and the "CHECK TIRE PRESSURE" message will appear when the vehicle is first started and then turn off as you start to drive the vehicle. This could be an early indicator that the tire pressures are getting low and need to be inflated to the proper pressure.

Each tire, including the spare (if provided), should be checked monthly when cold and inflated to the inflation pressure recommended by the vehicle manufacturer on the vehicle placard or tire inflation pressure label. (If your vehicle has tires of a different size than the size indicated on the vehicle placard or tire inflation pressure label, you should determine the proper inflation pressure for those tires.)

As an added safety feature, your vehicle has been equipped with a tire pressure monitoring system (TPMS) that illuminates a low tire pressure telltale when one or more of your tires is significantly under-inflated.

Accordingly, when the low tire pressure telltale illuminates, you should stop and check your tires as soon as possible, and inflate them to the proper pressure. Driving on a significantly under-inflated tire causes the tire to overheat and can lead to tire failure. Under-inflation also reduces fuel efficiency and tire tread life, and may affect the vehicle's handling and stopping ability.

Please note that the TPMS is not a substitute for proper tire maintenance, and it is the driver's responsibility to maintain correct tire pressure, even if under-inflation has not reached the level to trigger illumination of the TPMS low tire pressure telltale.

The "CHECK TIRE PRESSURE" warning message and low tire pressure light (telltale) will appear at each ignition cycle until the tires are inflated to the correct inflation pressure.

The Tire and Loading Information label (tire information placard) shows the size of your vehicle's original tires and the correct inflation pressure for your vehicle's tires when they are cold.

Your vehicle's TPMS can alert you about a low tire pressure condition but it does not replace normal tire maintenance.

NOTICE: Do not use a tire sealant if your vehicle has Tire Pressure Monitors. The liquid sealant can damage the tire pressure monitor sensors.

RESETTING THE TPMS IDENTIFICATION CODES
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. Each tire/wheel position is matched to a sensor, by increasing or decreasing the tire's air pressure. The sensors are matched to the tire/wheel positions in the following order: LF TIRE (left front tire on the driver's side of the vehicle), RF TIRE (right front tire on the passengers side of the vehicle), RR TIRE (right rear tire on the passengers side of the vehicle), and LR TIRE (left rear tire on the driver's side of the vehicle).

You will have one minute to match the first tire/wheel position, and five minutes overall to match all four tire/wheel positions. If it takes longer than one minute, 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 will need to start over.

The TPMS sensor matching process is outlined below:
  1. Set the parking brake.
  2. Turn the ignition switch to "RUN" with the engine off.
  3. Turn the headlamp switch from "OFF" to the parking lamps setting four times within three seconds. A double horn chirp will sound and the TPMS low tire warning light will begin to flash. The double horn chirp and flashing TPMS warning light indicate that the TPMS matching process has started. The TPMS warning light should continue flashing throughout the matching procedure. The "SERVICE TIRE MONITOR" message will be displayed on the Driver Information Center (DIC).
  4. Start with the driver's 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 10 seconds, then stop and listen for a single horn chirp. The single horn chirp should sound within 15 seconds, confirming that the sensor identification code has been matched to this tire and wheel position. If you do not hear the confirming single horn chirp, you will need to start over with Step 1. To let 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.
  6. Proceed to the passenger's side front tire, and repeat the procedure in Step 5.
  7. Proceed to the passenger's side rear tire, and repeat the procedure in Step 5.
  8. Proceed to the driver's side rear tire, and repeat the procedure in Step 5.
  9. After hearing the confirming horn chirp for the left rear tire, check to see if the TPMS warning light is still flashing. If it is, turn the ignition switch to LOCK to exit the sensor matching process. If the TPMS warning light is not flashing, the five minute time limit has passed and you will need to start the process over beginning with Step 1.
  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 spare tire does not have a TPMS sensor. If you replace one of the road tires with the spare, the "CHECK TIRE PRESSURE" message will be displayed on the DIC screen. This message should go off once you re-install the road tire containing the TPMS sensor. The "SERVICE TIRE MONITOR" message is displayed when the TPMS is malfunctioning. One or more missing or inoperable TPMS sensors will cause the service tire monitor message to be displayed.

Hi, I have a check front tire pressure warning on my 2009 saturn vue hybrid I filled up the tire it's not low at all, how do I get rid of the indicator warning? Thanks Amanda


The TPMS light (Tire Pressure Monitoring System) for that vehicle should function as follows.

If the light is on and steady, it means that the pressure in one or more of the tires is too low, and if the light is flashing, then it indicates that one or more of the tires are over-inflated.

1. Turn the ignition key to the "On" or "Run" position but do not start the vehicle. (If the vehicle has an electronic keyless ignition then place the ignition switch in the "ACCY" position)

2. Press the "Lock" and "Unlock" buttons at the same time on the vehicles remote key fob, and keep holding the two buttons down until you hear the horn beep, and usually this takes around five seconds. The horn beep will indicate that the learn cycle has begun.

3. Re-learn the TPMS system. Deflate or inflate air into the driver-side front tire for approximately 8 to 10 seconds and then listen for the horn to beep one time. (the horn might beep before the 8 to 10 second re-learn, or it could even take as long as 30 seconds after)

4. Repeat steps 2 and 3 for the remaining three tires. Also, the remaining three tires must be checked in the exact following order, the passenger-side front tire, the passenger-side rear tire and finally the driver-side rear tire. After the final TPMS sensor has re-learned then the horn will beep twice.

5. Listen for the horn to beep twice. When the horn does beep twice, it wikll be the indicator that the TPMS system has re-learned and reset.

6. Turn the ignition switch to the "Off" position, and then be certain that all four tires have the correct tire pressure as recommended on the drivers door, and the next time that the ignition is turned on, the tire pressure light should be reset.

Let me know if you require any further assistance.
