Another TPMS thread ....

Well the other day while driving the truck I got the Tire sensor fault and the light on the dash with the light flashing ....and after a few seconds the light went to solid ....and when I slowed down to pull into a gas station parking lot , to look for the AIR , it went out ....then a few days ago it went on again and went off in a similar fashion when I made a left turn .....and then today while down the HWY it came on again ....and then when I pulled into the gas station to let my wife use the rest room , it went out again , and came back on again shortly after I got back on the hwy ...after 20 miles it went out .

This thing is driving me crazy ....it came on again on the way home ( trip was 100+ mile each way ) and it stayed on for atleast 60 miles , went of again and came on when I got withen 5 minutes from home ....and after I got home I started readding and I went out and checked the tire pressure , and all the tires went past the 60psi the gauge I have in the garage goes too if it had #s that far it would be in the 80-90psi range ...and the door sticker says they should be @ 65psi cold ( it is snowing out here ) ...and then after being home for an hour I went out and started the truck the light was still on , so I went down the street mayby a 1/4 mile and back and it went out ......

so is there a way the band that holds these sensors to the wheels , to come loose and allow them to spin ?? or could the pressure be to high ?? I am trying to come up with what it could be other then just trying to replace all the sensors ....any ideas ??

I feel your pain, Bigdog150. My '09 does the same thing, I just clear the DIC and keep driving. At some point, I'll let the dealer look at it. I forecast that it won't error while there and they will advise 'no problem seen'.

Never been a fan of these TPM sensors...

Well I ran to the hanger ( my work ) and one of the tires was @ 90 and 2 others were @ 80 and one @ 78 so I tried bringing to 90psi one down to 80psi ...so they are all withen 5 psi of each other ...but the light stayed off for my 12 mile drive in and out ...so there is no way to now if there was a change or not ....this is stupid

Not sure what to say about your situation but I have set my cold tire pressures to 65 front, 80 rear, and done the TPMS re-learn on two separate occasions... all sensors respond and sync... doesn't matter, the 'Tire Pressure Sensor Fault" will come on almost every time I roll the highway for a couple of hours... then go away. The whole system is retarded.

Best thing that could happen for both of us is fault light would stay on, then we could show the dealer and say 'fix this'...
