5 Answers


does this system not behave itself? the 'reset' button' must be pressed when the tires have reached the correct inflation...but has to be reset...might you check the the owners manual to see where that button is~ DO NOT recommend bypassing anything like your initial question~


Basically you can't, if you have a TPMS light or a warning readout then it is most likely the sensors need replaced if you tire pressures are at specs.


The fittings may be on the valve stem. They are battery operated and the batteries contained do not last forever. When the batteries go, the valve stem must be replaced, meaning the tire comes off, etc. YOur vehicle is 12 years old, they may need replacement.

OJ is right...may be just new valve caps for that car!~
