That's your TPS system (tire pressure monitoring system) sensing no air pressure because the sensors have been removed. Are there any lights on your drivers display that are yellow or red?

Hi Colin - thanks for your reply. I had it removed the other day as i had a flat and the valve was cracked. It bleeped for a few days with the yellow symbol being displayed, now it is making another bleep so i now have two going alternatively. I am going to get it sorted in the next few days. Is it ok to use?

it's fine to use. As long as your tire pressures are set to factory specs. You can find that info on the inside edge of the drivers door.... And, no problem.

Cheers Buddy!

The tire alarm will continue to ring until you replace the broken tire pressure valve sensor.Those computerize sensors are expensive and breaks easy. I just replace one with regular air tire valves, after a while youll get use to the every 5 min ringing.
