Tire sensor
« on: November 29, 2019, 04:12:43 PM »
Went to Discount tire today to have a tire pressure sensor replaced as my
TPMS light was on .
Checked all the tires and they all had the right pressure.
Also had them all rotated.

My fil has a 2012 Ford edge. It's at the shop once a month for tire sensor lights on.

The wife's 2012 Ford escape has been fine.

I never had any trouble with them on a 2009 GMC 2500. HD.
But my brothers 2017 equinox has had an issue.  It was a wire connection under the driver's seat.

Did replacing the TPMS sensors help or is the light still on? I know your probably aware that during the winter months with a lot of temperature up and downs it plays hell on the pressure of some tires and TPMS systems. If you haven't yet done so go online a see if you can find anything about your make and model of vehicle and TPMS failure.
Driving Corvettes made me religious about manually checking the tire pressure of all four once a month no matter what my info display said for each tire. On my current car, a Genesis sedan, it never fails that on cold mornings for the TPMS to activate on one or two. Driving a couple of miles usually warms them up to the required pressure.

My TPMS in my F150 (08) has been on forever.  I put a little device for covering your laptop camera over it.

I learned years ago to check tire pressure in my vehicles.

Like everything dont depend on the gizzmos.

We have become so dependent on techno gizmos we have forgotten how to fend for ourselves.

Aside from the tech that improves performance and mileage all the other BS could be left off imo.

I find that my tire pressure lights are frequently telling me that my spare is low and not the tires on the ground.

Had a full serve 3bay Arco station from 68 to 73 off an expressway.
Don't remember the year or make of the car but a car comes into the station with the right front wheel
smoking and making some noise .
Jacked it up and the whole wheel was loose as a goose.
pulled the grease cap off and out comes pieces of wheel bearings and metal dust as the bearings were
completely gone.
the only thing holding the wheel on was the nut and the large washer.
So always remember to have your bearings repacked when they should be. :th_thicon_idea:

Alot of new vehicles have a sealed type bearing not a cone/cup setup like the old days.
Cant be greased have to be replaced and many times they are pressed in so you replace the hub/rotor depending on if its a single pc or two piece.

Most cars on the road are owned/operated by folks who know where the key and gas go and not much more.

If it wasn't for sensors on cars today for the oil, tires and other fluid levels, I expect a large number of cars would run out of oil, brake fluid, air and water and the drivers would never know there was a critical issue...

i check all tires if i'm expected to drive more than a dozen miles or so.
check all underhood fluids every week.
check diff a couple of times a month and each time before leaving town.
less than a couple of minutes of time to do so except for checking the diff,
and it takes longer to go find a ratchet and extension than it does to crawl
up underneath and remove the plug.

About a week after buying a new car for my wife she hit a curb & the TPMS light has been on ever since. We put 150,000 + miles on it with black tape over the light. Someone failed to yield & totaled it 2 months ago. I was shocked to discover the other guy actually had insurance! Maybe that's being enforced now or I just got lucky. Meanwhile my wife is still hitting curbs in her new Mazda.
