Is it possible whoever re and re'd your tires damaged the sensor?KEVSTER wrote:OK, after getting new tires on 10-31-09 the driver rear seems to lose some air pressure usually 5 psi a week, so the TPMS light came on, so I checked the onboard tire system the other 3 tires show 42psi, the driver rear shows X, so I took the vehicle into the tire shop I purchased tires from and the manager scanned the sensor through the tire and it will NOT scan.
I agree, this system has saved me at least $500 in a year and a half by alerting me before the tire was too damaged to repair. The only down side to TPMS that I can see is that it makes it more expensive to change tires. However, at the right tire dealer and with the proper care, I think that cost is limited to $20-25 per tire.bigmankz wrote:I really don't get it why would one NOT want to have TPMS ? This system saved me couple of time on mountain trails with around 100 mile to the nearest tire fixing joint. I had a puncture in two tires and fixed them on car with a rubber wire. Pumped the tires with compressor and went further. Without TPMS system I would probably drove untill the tire dismounted from the rim which would a be a disaster. If I ever buy a car without this system I will definately install an aftermarket one.
