Hi my name is ***** ***** I will be happy to assist with this today.In some cases I may need more info to assist better.I apologize for any delay.

If all tires are at the correct pressure and you still see this warning/fault this indicates that one or more of the tire pressure sensors is sending a false signal or no signal at all causing this issue here.I have seen this several times before unfortunately and had to replace the faulty tire pressure sensor.

What needs to be done from here is to have the tire pressure sensors tested.This is done with a tire pressure sensor test tool that a shop or dealer or tire shop has.They can use this tool quickly to locate the faulty tire pressure sensor then that sensor will need replaced.This is a common fault when one or more of these sensors fails.There is one sensor in each wheel.

If more help is needed, use the reply tab to continue our conversation. If no further assistance is needed, kindly rate my service,your 5 star rating is appreciated ( should be a link to click on here or above).You can rate at any time and we can continue to work on your question as this will not close out your question.Keep in mind in some cases it can be difficult to fully diagnose or help repair your vehicle without seeing it and I work on delivering the best possible answer from what I see to work with.

Thanks Pete
