tire pressure light

So the other day I woke up and noticed my tire pressure light was on, went and put air in my tires and read the manual. After Reseting numerous times it still wont go back and the light is still on. any info on how I can fix this?

If resetting the monitor doesn't remove the warning, then one of your tire pressure sensors might be faulty.

It's time to replace your TPMS.

Weird...I wonder how can u tell which one its the faulty one? On mine everytime I have low air warning it does not tell me which one of the 4 tires. I guess its because I dont have the OB screen?

you have an 07 depending on your date build you may not have tpms, rather then ftm.

first check your tires of course.

then without turning your car on, press the start button twice (accessory mode) then go to the tpms symbol(bc stalk) and hold down the BC button until you see a checked box. you may have to click it once and hold. It should reset

06 builds dont have tpms just tells you if you have a flat or low on air. you have to do the work and find out which one.

I thought I did. Yes u right I have to find out which tire is low, thats why I carry a air preassure gauge in my glove compartment just in case. I check air pressure about every month or so. Its very handy!

Did you drive the car after resetting? Mine won't reset unless I drive it around the block.

yeah, tire pressure sensor is probably bad....if you know the tires are at proper inflation, and you check them every so often, you can live with the light for a while....

Did you ever figure this out? Mine has the same issue and its an 06. It came on but the tires were good on air, and it wont turn off.

If you do have TPMS and the light comes on and stays on it means pressure is low, if it flashes, then you have a malfunction, usually on 07-08 your sensor batteries are dead..

Yeah, mine says 'Inactive'. There's no way to recharge the batteries I assume?

Running RFTs or non-RFTs will not affect the tire pressure.
