Re: unusual tpms sensor problem help!

Have you tried rotatiting the problematic tire/sensor to the front and/or swap the spare and put it in the rear left position?

If the problem follows the wheel, it is the sensor, if it stays where it is, I would assume it is the transponder. I believe there is a transponder for each wheel...but could be wrong.

I would also make sure the reset procedure for the TPMS system was performed correctly. I have no idea what it is (other than it is done with the StarScan), but when I have had replaced faulty sensors before, this took a couple of trips to the dealership to get right.

Good luck!

same tire? if so then the battery is most likely dead and you need a new sensor

Re: unusual tpms sensor problem help!

Did you drive it for a couple of miles after rotating the tires? Sometimes it takes a little time for it to re-learn where all the sensors have moved to.

If the problem didn't follow the tire when rotated, it's either the receiver or the programming.

Might be easiest to take it to the dealership. You could try swapping out the receiver yourself, it's a pretty easy job, but no guarantee it'll solve your problem...and it may need to be set up using the StarScan - never tried it.
