Tpms error

Hey y'all just seeing I anyone else has experienced this. I was driving home from work a few days ago in a flood I'm talking 8 inches of rain in a few hours kinda flood. While I was driving in this my tpms light came on and won't go off, I've checked the air and they're all at 65psi. What can I do to get this dang annoying light off?!? I would have posted this in the trouble section but this doesn't pertain to motor tranny or drivetrain.

My right rear sensor has been acting up for a few months now. I've tried everything from disconnecting the batteries, reseting the sensors and switching tires around. I still get that damn error on the first 20 miles on the highway and it comes and goes from there. I'm not worried because I've ordered new wheels and tires and will be getting that gadget from H&S that allows you to shut the system off. Hope you have better luck than I.

Also look in the manual to see how you reset the sensors with that little button in the owners book. You have to press brake, cycle ignition a few times, press and hold brake and then cycle keys again. Then you come around with that tool and reset every sensor at the tire.

Have a good one,
Pete

Thanks bud I'll check the manual out and work on resetting the sensors. I ordered the H&S mini max this morning, is that what your talking about that can disable the tire sensors?

I believe they came out with a little plug that goes into the OBD port while you flash the computer with the mini maxx. As far as I know its about 100 dollars

I have one that has gone out too. I used my tpms scan tool to find the bad one and still haven't replaced it.
