Hi there!

Yes they should be able to sort it out for you.

Chances are it is not sealing on your rim,

Take it back to them, they will deflate it, paint a compound on the rim areas, then re-inflate it.

If you remove the tyre yourself, and immerse it in water up over the rim, you can mark the area if it bubbles.
You can self-fix by using impact adhesive on the rim - when tyre is fully deflated on this area.
Tyre rubber compounds are soft in this area and should conform to seal within a month or so, but sometimes don't make it.

The other reason is that rust or a crack may be evident.

If this provides a solution, Please spare a moment to rate as Fixya! Thanks.

Tire pressure is correct but tps indicate a low pressure in one tire. service engine light comes on after a long drive and then goes off after a while.

Lets start with the tps light, make sure to check the tire pressure in the spare also as some car makers have a sensor on the spare also, after you sett all the tire pressures the light should go off after a small drive if not then i would reset the tps system,to reset the system you will first need to see if there is a sensor in the spare, the valve stem will be a regular rubber stem, this means no sensor or if it has the metal stem with the nut then it has a sensor but i will say it does not as i looked it up, the first step is to turn ignition on without starting the engine, so turn key until dah lights lite up this will be right before the start mode next push and hold the lock and unlock button on the remote, you will hear the horn chirp this means you are in program mode next you will start at the front left tire start to release air until the horn chrips after the horn chirps move to rt front tire and let air out until you hear the horn chirp you will continue to rt rear and let air out until horn chirp and last is left rear at the left rear the horn will double chirp this meand program is done turn key off. now set all tire to correct pressure and drive, light should go off, make sure to have all valve caps off as it gives you a total of 5 mins to complete the program but once key is off you have plenty of time, during the program mode if you are letting air out and the horn doesnt chirp then that tire has a bad sensor, you will need to let out at least 10lbs for the computer to pick up a change in the sensor, if the tire is flat from letting air out and the horn doesnt chirp then that sensor is bad, hope this helps, have a good day. note make sure you have an air pump or do this at an air pump as you will need to reset tire pressure .

My Totota Venza's tire pressure light keep coming on very 6 weeks after driving it for a year. Only have 10K miles after 1 1/2 years. I have taken it back to dealer three times and will be a fourth...

No car defect - there is a normal amount of wear on your tires after 10K miles, and
one (or more) of the tires are starting to leak air just a little bit - which after 1.5 years and
10K miles is entirely expected.
What's happening is that the TPMS (Tire Pressure Management System) sensors (one in each tire)
are sending info to the car's computer telling it that there is low air in at least one tire.
To the TPMS, "low air" means a drop in air pressure of just a few percent (set by the
manufacturer). A drop in pressure in just one tire will light the dashboard light.
The spare (temporary) tire is not monitored by the TPMS, and typically carries a pressure
of 60 PSI.
According to (NHTSA), a normal tire will lose as much as 1.5 PSI
per month as air escapes the tire and rim naturally.
The 2009 Toyota Venza utilizes the "direct" TPMS system (as opposed to the indirect), which is
explained by the Wikipedia article at

If you or dealer suspect the TPMS sensor(s) in one or more tires, they can be purchased on the aftermarket from sites like,, After the new TPMS sensor(s) are installed,
you (or your garage),must re-teach the TPMS system its new sensors using the following procedure: (1) let the car sit stationary on its wheels (not lifted) for at least 20 minutes, then
test drive the car for at least 10 minutes at a continuous speed of 15 MPH or greater. During the
test drive, the TPMS dashboard light should go out.

Tire pressure monitor error on cadillace escalade 2005. Cannot reset as instructions. What could be wrong.

You may have a bad wheel sensor, try it one more time, scroll to tire pressure setting then go to driverside front wheel and you let air out until horn chrips then move to right front tire and let air out until horn chrips then go to rt rear and let air out until horn chrips then left rear and let the air out until horn chirps, then turn off ignition and set all four tire pressures, then start and tire a few feet they should all be set, take note when horn chrips telling you that its in tire pressure setting mode you have limited time so make sure you have all the valve caps off and something to release air, when letting the air out it may take up to a min to get the horn to sound for confirmation or the tire, but once the last tire is confirmed then key is turn off and you have time to set all tire but try to do it within 10 min, hope this helps,

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

Lexus ls430 2004 tire pressure indicator

You probably didn't need new tires unless you had some miles on it. Remember that the spare tire also has a pressure monitor as well. It most likely is causing the low tire pressure light on the dash and only needs to be inflated back to what ever your other tires are set to. I had the same problem on my RX and took it back to the dealership where they told me since the spare is exposed to the same elements (it's under the back of the RX - you have to use the tire iron to let the spare down), it will inevidably lose air.

Good luck.
