Low tire pressure light will not shut off

Asked by GuruF58NJ Nov 30, 2020 at 03:04 PM about the 2015 Volvo XC70

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Had a flat tire several weeks ago. Garage found nail and fixed it.
Two days ago I was going home from the store and low tire pressure light
came on. Went to same garage. They claimed they fixed it and said that light
would go out after driving it for 15 minutes at over 25 mph. I did and light is
still on.
Could this be a sensor issue?

if a sensor stops transmitting or receives insufficient battery voltage. A warning lamp also lights in the Driver information module at the same time as the tire pressure warning message appears.

The mechanic is correct to clear the TPMS light once the tires are inflated properly, is to drive over 25mph for 10mins. No stops in between. A nice stretch of highway is good for that.

Once I left the garage I had no choice, but, to stop a couple times for traffic lights before I got on open road. So I have to repeat this again before taking it on the road (for that uniterrupted ride) again? I did notice an "i" on the dash. I have previously had problems with the satellite radio (which I do not subscribe to) draining battery. BUT, that is a long story. I am not sure about returning to that same garage , a tire retailer, or if I should go to a Volvo service center. Dealerships are just so crooked. I thank you very much for answering. I really do appreciate it.

To TDolby, Returned to tire retailer. He had car for approx. 1 and 1/2 hrs. Heard him talking on phone with some Volvo person and then he yelled to someone out back that they must do something through the dash. It's been 2 days and no low tire pressure light has popped up. Thank you TDolby for advice.
