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 ??
