I have a 2010 Toyota Rav 4. The tire pressure light blinks, then eventually stays on. I have checked all the tires and they are properly aired up. Read that it may be caused by batteries or sensors in/near tires. My question is, as long as I know the tires have the right amount of air in them, is it safe to drive until I can get it fixed? Thanks.

The vehicle is safe to drive as long as the tires are at proper pressure. TPMS valve stem batteries generally last for about 10 years, depending in part upon how much mileage is on them. To keep the TPMS system functioning the sensors will need to be replaced. Or you can tape over the warning light on the dash until your tires wear out and need replacement so that tire and TPMS replacement can be done at the same time. Some have used Dr. Dyno's TPMS system shutoff to permanently eliminate the TPMS system from functioning.
