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 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.

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.

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.
