My name is ***** *****. I just had the tire pressure sensor

Customer Question

Customer: My name is ***** *****. I just had the tire pressure sensor replaced on one of my tires and now the light is blinking on and staying on. The replacement occurred today.
JA: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?
Customer: My tire was losing air for over one week, I was putting air in the tire every couple of days. Yesterday when air was put in the tire you could hear air escaping from the tire. Took it to a repair shop and they could not do anything with it yesterday and asked that I return today which I did. This mornig the tire was flat. Took to the shop and the pressure sensor was replaced. Drove about 20 miles the light was flashing and then it stayed on. hopefully you understand. I want to know whyis the light on again do I run the risk of another flat tire.

Have you checked all your Tire pressures to see if any are low?

What are all your tire pressures at around?

Expert:  Jay replied 2 years ago.

Ok.. That is good. They must not have programmed the sensor to the vehicle.

I would take it back to the place that did the install of the sensor. They may have installed a incorrect sensor, or they forgot to program it to cause the tire light to come on.

The tire light would normally come on if tire pressures reach 27 psi.

Is there a particular sensor that specifically needed to be installed? I mean a certain name brand.
Expert:  Jay replied 2 years ago.

I don't know what kind of sensor they installed and even if it is compatibly programmable to your car.

When you install a new tire pressure sensor, all the tire pressure sensors need to be reprogrammed to the car. You can't just program one. That is not how the system works.
