Hi my name is***** will answer your question the best I can if I have helped please remember to leave a positive rating
If your tire pressure monitor sensor light is flashing when you first start the car the problem is going to be one of the sensors in the wheels, a flashing light means there is a problem with the system that needs to be diagnosed and it is usually one or more of the sensors is bad if the light comes on solid when the engine is first started then its just a pressure issue and after adjusting the pressures to the right psi then the light will go off on its own after driving for a short while. also if the pressure is the same but too low all around the light will come on I usually set all the pressures to 35 psi then the pressures won't drop too low when the temperature is low outside

it my self,.
Expert:  Rick replied 2 years ago.
You need a tire machine to break down the tire. the sensor is actually part of the valve stem you put air into, you also need to know which sensor is bad and then the sensor has to be registered to the system for it to work. The dealer is the best place to get it done they have the specific equipment to do all the testing and registering

What is the average for replacemnt
Expert:  Rick replied 2 years ago.
It varys depending on the dealers labor rate, usually to do a sensor and reprogram at my dealer would be an hour labor and our labor rate is $132 an hour the cost of the sensor is I'm guessing is about $90 dollars. I don't have accurate parts prices
