I just got my snow tires taken off and put summer tires on,

Customer Question

I just got my snow tires taken off and put summer tires on, two old tires and two new ones, on Thursday. The tire pressure light started coming on yesterday, Sturday, and now won't go off. Tires are all inflated correctly.
JA: Have you checked your tire pressure? Do you have a tire gauge?
Customer: First it blinks for about a minute then stays on. Yes we checked them with a gauge this morning. All between 33 and 35.
JA: What is the model/year of your Kia?
Customer: 2011 Sportage
JA: Are you fixing your Sportage yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: took it to a tire place to get the snow tires switched over. I don't trust our local Kia dealer.
JA: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?
Customer: No, I don't fix things myself.

the odds are the sensors need to be [programmed into the vehicles computer

any Firestone or Town fair tire can do this for you

when they are doing this they will test all 4 sensors there is a chance one might be bad

so they will tell you this when they are trying to program the sensors to the vehicle
