Are you running the factory wheels with the factory TPMS sensors installed? Are all 5 of them mounted on the vehicle? If so, and the tires all have sufficient pressure, then you could have a bad sensor.

this is some what of a dump thing. but the way i see it, you should give your car/truck a once over, at least once a month anyway. so this is another slution to your problem.

goto a hardware store and get your self a few things.
- about 8-12 inch of 4inch PVC
- two 4inch caps
- some PVC cement or glue
- a generic tire valve
you can usually find all these in the plumbing department of most major hardware stores.

then you make your self one of these




when i did mine, i wrapped the 5 OEM sensors in bubble wrap and then stuck them in there, you can use cotton, news paper, popcorn, what ever you got. as long as they dont move around.

then you stick this 'can' somewhere in the truck, under the pack seat, where ever...
problem solved

Dr. Dyno, how and where do you splice in the resistor?

I'm going to go without TPMS on the winter tire/wheel package, and would love NOT looking at the light all winter long.

Thanks!

No splicing just trim the leads and push it into the plug. See my post 22 here:
How to disable TPMS (How to turn off TPMS light)
With your summer rims remove the resistor and you have the TPMS, which I consider a very useful system, back.

Inspection

This code that gets thrown isn't the kind that will lodge in your computer and prevent it from passing state inspections, is it? In New York, if a code is thrown, it will prevent it from passing the inspection. Even when cleared, there's a weird driving sequence the vehicle must go through so it clears and will pass.
