also if I turn the truck off and let it cool down and sit for an hour or 2 it will go off and about 30 mins into driving it will come back on

Retrain the sensors to the truck, make sure the pressures are right, and make sure the sensors are able to transmit trough the tires.

Make sure the sensors aren't damaged, also. They are fairly easy to damage during installation/removal of tires.

I'm having this same problem. Only difference is mine does it the instant you turn the key on. I've taken it into the dealer and they are no help at all. Is there any way to check the sensors without dismounting the tires? Sometimes it says "Tire pressure sensor fault" on the screen and other times it says "Tire pressure monitor fault" and it comes on immediately every time I turn the truck on.

Thanks

What is the pressure in tires you all are running? I know some of the bigger tires are run at lower pressures than the stock ones that the TPMS was designed to work with.

What we are all getting here is a monitor fault, not a low pressure reading. Looks like it's time to dismount the tires and look for faulty sensors
