H&S TPMS Adjust Issue

So I recently got my TPMS dongle for my H&S Mini Maxx and I ran into a problem. When I program the pressure setting, I can't get the Low Tire Pressure warning to clear. I made sure to set the tuner to my actual tire pressure (the manual says within 5%) and I drove a couple of times no less than 10 miles each at highway speeds. I didn't have any TPMS issues before adding the adjustment.

Any ideas?

NOTE: If I choose to disable the TPMS, it disables without any issues.

I just disabled the TPMS completely without problems.

I haven't tried to set for custom pressures.

Sorry that you're having troubles...maybe someone will chime in for help.

Send H&S an email or give them a call tomorrow. Their customer service has a great reputation.

Yeah, that's my plan if I can't get it resolved today...

So the last thing I did:

1. Set the tires to 55psi
2. Set the TPMS to 55psi
3. Adjust the tires to 70psi
4. Drove 10mi 45-60mph
5. Perform the TPMS relearn procedure (successfully)
6. Drove 10mi 45-60mph
7. Light never cleared
8. Disabled TPMS

TPMS be damned, just disable it. As long as we don't start getting pulled over to see if we have a functioning TPMS, I say screw it.

Well after several days of trying to get the TPMS tuned, I just turned it off and H&S is sending me a new module. Hopefully, that will cure the problem.

I somehow survived for decades checking my tire pressure...

TPMS is a creation of lawsuits and lawyers. If you are capable of checking your own tire pressure, just turn the junk off
