Tire Pressure Sensor - Failure
While in California with the Legend Lives trip, we took a trip to the Pacific Ocean on Friday. While driving along the Tire Pressure Sensor Fault message lit up. Concerned, I pulled over and checked the tire pressure and all were good and matched. When I restarted the light was off. On the return trip back to the hotel the message came on again. At the Hotel, I checked pressures and all normal.
During the drive back cross country (to NC) the message showed up several time which I ignored and the message would go off in a 100 miles or so. Last time was in Arkansas and it has not came on again.
I had new tires installed the week before the trip and the dealership advised that since I was not having issue, not the bother with the sensor. In hind site, I should have had the sensor replaced. May have cost a few additional dollars but would have saved a few gray hairs. Not good to get that message while driving on the California freeways, especially since I didn't know the roads.
Now this trip is over, I have had the car serviced and air bags replaced, most likely it will go back into the garage until spring. May drive it a little around the holidays but I am not going to worry about the TPM sensor until spring when we start planning next year's events.
