Hi all,

Regarding the TPS light on the Instrument Display.

Today the TPS light came on - All 4 tires are at the recommended PSI rating.

40 in the fronts 36 in the rears.

The CIU shows no tire pressure issue.

Anyone know any trick to turn that nagging icon off?

Of all the dash light in all my cars that little P***k drives me wild :)

No. You have a bad sensor. The only way to turn out the light is with the fisker scan tool and a special TPMS tool to program a new sensor to the VCM.
Alternatively a piece of black electrical tape or a business card will hide the light just fine 馃槈

Ok I will change them out.

They are Factory OEM and 10 years old.

I would guess the coin battery is NFG.

UPDATE:

Changed the battery in the TPMS and the light on the dash is now gone. No Fisker laptop required.

Outstanding - so you had to remove the tire, open up the sensor and replace the battery. Seems like a much more cost effective approach than the TPMS replacement and repairing I had to go through. Do all four of your tires report correctly now?

Hi Simon,

Yes, and yes. :D

It was simple - plus I had the tire shop only break the front bead and not the back bead so rebalancing the tire was not required.

No Fisker laptop was required as the ID of the old sensor (dead battery) was still programed to the VCM.

All 4 tires now read normal. TMPS light on dash also cleared.

YouTube has many videos on how to change out any vehicle TMPS sensor battery.

I can鈥檛 believe each TPS has a battery, and all 4 of mine have been working for 10 years without replacement?! That seems impossible. Anyway thanks for documenting this here, as I鈥檓 sure it will happen eventually.
