Well since I have had my titan when ever I take long trips, over 100mi, the light flashes for a bit then goes solid. It goes off after 15 or so minutes. This is my second set of tires so I know it's not the tires. I keep 40lbs in them. I check the tires before long trips. The trip was 650mi round trip and the light came on 4 times.

Went to the dealer today and they said there isn't much they can do under warranty unless the light is on when I bring the truck in. They said most likely it only stores the code for 1 day if it does and then there is a better than good chance that there will be no code.

I asked him if a sensor could be bad/going bad, he said the light would be on all the time.

Anyone else???

mine goes on all the time and sometimes goes away. i choose to ignore it because i check my tires all the time and a little inflation when low helps. i know it doesnt help ur problem but if there is no danger, then dont worry.

Same thing happened to me sometime ago and the tech fixed it by inflating the tires to over 60psi and then bringing it down to 40psi...

Was told that had to be done before the sensor would recognize any pressure after the tire had been removed...

Try that and see....Let us know....

Mine did that while hauling a motorcyle from Seattle to Fallon, I'm pretty sure mine was related to temperature and altitude changes though, once I got down there and drove for a while it didn't do it anymore. Same for the trip back up. Nothing since.

One or more of your Tire Pressure Sensors are bad. You will get the same results if you take one out and replace it with a regular valve stem.

From what you described, it sure sounds like one is malfunctioning.... It may just not have gone totally bad but it seems it's losing the signal with the computer intermittently. :dunno: Just keep an eye on your tire pressure and wait for the TPMS to die altogether, I guess.

mine is always on, but i have 07 rims and sensors on an 08 truck and think it just doesn't pick them up. started as soon as i changed rims. i am going to put my 08 sensors on my new wheels once i get them.

My light comes on only on trips over about a 120 miles, but the thing is i have swapped my wheels out for the se/le wheels but they don't have the sensors even in the wheels currently. My sensors are in my garage in my 17" wheels. I am wondering if i should even have the sensors put in these wheels as it obviously is not working that well.

My cousin had the same problem on his 06. He took it to the dealership and they adjusted the air pressure in his spair tire. Yep that what i said the spair tire. Worked for him maybe its worth a try.

Check the air pressure in your spare. Got mine above 35 psi and solved the problem.

Hi
Haven't been here in a while, but I have a different TPMS-related problem. I went out to the barn one morning and weee! I had a flat RR. (I also have a broken leg) I got the tire/wheel off and into the trunk of the Q45 and set off about 15 miles to our local tire store - mostly ag tractors and trucks kind of place. The TPMS was leaking (16000miles) around the wheel hole. Took it down and removed the TPMS - the rubber gasket was crushed, shrunk, and sickly looking. I had bought another set of rims for snow tires and had brought the four spare TPMS with me, so we put one of those ones back on. The gasket was nice, and had the correct and needed 'hat' shape. Put it back together and everything's fine except the light won't go out - no chime or whatever the sound is supposed to be. I'll try the 'air-the-spare' trick next, I guess.
Still love my Titan. Had the front-to-back brake fix at 10000miles and so far, so good.
Thanks

I had a wierd thing happen yesterday.
Cruising south at 70 mph, the light started flickering.
Then came on solid.
I broke speed to 65 and gave the truck the wiggle test as I could feel all 4 corners on the pavement.
Then the light started flickering again, and then went out.
The whole time this incident was occurring, I was being passed my a newer GM Suburban. My truck tires are fine, but I think maybe that other vehicle set off my light while it was passing me by.
Wierd for sure.

There is no sensor in the spare tire! That is why you don't use it in a rotation sequence. The spare tires inflation has absolutely nothing to do with the TPMS system.

my spare tire does have one of the sensors. it is a full size spare that is one of the alloy wheels not one of the cheaper wheels.

Read your owners manual. The full size alloy spares DO NOT have a sensor.
