OK, I know this has been posted 10 thousand times, but search functions..You know......I have reprogrammed the speedo, and I have programmed the turn signal, but since I have set the TPMS to 26 (my tires are running at 30, I cna't get the low tire warning to go off!!

What am I doing wrong???

Thanks

Try setting it at 20 and see if that works. Who knows maybe your pressure gauge is way off! I have digital and stick type and get different readings by a few psi

You can always just set it at 0 and it will go away

Thanks for the replies!

The sensors are all new, and worked fine when I had the pressure in stock range.

I have several agreeing guages, soI think PSI is accurate.

It just seems that this should work with something other than 0. I havent had a chance to try something lower than 26, but will do that tonight.

That was in interesting point, though, how would one tell if one of the TPMS sensors was bad?

What happens if you return everything to stock on the pro cal? If the issue goes away then its something in the programming. If not them take it to the stealer and have the sensors checked.

From the AEV Procal manual:
The TPMS sensors use timed and pressure-loss triggers to update the vehicle of tire pressures. In the event that the Low Pressure Threshold has changed to a value equal to or higher than actual tire pressure, the tires must be inflated to at least 5 psi over the new low value. The vehicle must then be driven up to 10 minutes above 15mph before the TPMS sensors update the vehicle of the new
tire pressure. Once the reported tire pressure is 5psi above the Low Pressure Threshold the TPMS indicator lamp will turn off.


By the way my VW does the same thing, I have to air them up 5 over the threshold before they reset. Drives me crazy whenever I get the tires rotated because I tell them and they never do it.

Texas05 hit the nail on the head. Resetting to 0 - clearing the light - and then resetting it to the numbers of your choosing will also do the trick.

I had a sensor get "stuck" one time, because I had dynabeads in my tire and let out about 15psi due to a dealer "correcting my inflation" during an oil change (ugh!). "They" say the beads won't affect the TPMS sensors, but they definitely did for me when I let a lot of air out. I eventually removed the beads & went to conventional balancing on both the inside & outside of the rim. Couldn't be happier (painted the weights on the outside so you can't see them easily). But, I digress...zero out - clear the sensor - and then re-set it & you should be good unless something is mucking with the sensor inside the wheel.

I set it to 0 and the light stays out. Anything above 0 causes the light to stay on. Havent tried driving it 10 min, will give that a try.

Thanks again for the help

It took mine about 5 minutes down the road for the light to go off.
