The TPMS light came on on my dash.What do I need to replace?
Batteries are probably on their last leg, replace the sensors!Exactly my question. Mine just came on about a month ago and after reading some things online I came across an information that talked about checking the air on the tires as a low air would trigger that TPMS light on. Ok great, I checked all 4 tires and two were missing some air (not a whole lot to be honest) and the other two were just fine. Filled the two with low levels and the light went off. Not even 2 hours later the light was back on. I stopped and checked to see if I had a leak and the air was exactly to the levels I filled. I just kept on going and it went away. After that it comes on and off whenever it wants. Maybe a faulty TPMS sensors I guess.

How about just a strategically positioned piece of black electrical tape? Easy and guaranteed not to cause issues.I'm with Sha93 on this one, I really don't need the TPMS at all. However, I'm annoyed by the light in my cluster.
What problems might arise from leaving the TPMS sensors dead in the wheels and pulling out the bulb in the cluster? Does that cause other issues?
Surprised that you don't proactively inflate your tires by an extra few psi in the late fall to keep the pressures at or above the recommended value during those bone chilling winter months of perpetual darkness in the great white north.Although I've spent the greater part of my life squatting and kneeling in icy slush at the gas station air pump, my time has come to call Roger Murtaugh on this.
Now, yes, and TPMS helps me make sure they stay good without chilling my bones, but I haven't always had such a convenient system or non-slow-leaky tires, rims or valves.Surprised that you don't proactively inflate your tires by an extra few psi in the late fall to keep the pressures at or above the recommended value during those bone chilling winter months of perpetual darkness in the great white north.
Map of places that provide free air for tires | Free air near meWhen gas station air pumps went up to a dollar, the cheap bastard in me could no longer countenance that, so I wised up and bought my own pump, which can serve me and my daughter in the convenience of our own bone-chilling perpetually dark garage.
Nice find. There are a few places for Montreal and the South Shore, but they're all for bicycles except one. I know the place and I've never gotten gas there because it's a full serve and more expensive. I'd feel bad to use their air without getting gas, but if my fillup costs over a dollar more than everywhere else, I'm not ahead and it's a kind of Morton's fork. Glad I got my nifty little portable compressor.
