There was a slight rub on the pinch weld so I brought out the bfh and fixed that! It was pretty easy without cutting anything although I am sure that would make it so much easier.
Looks good bro. I cant wait to get my gmax as03's mounted

The TPMS sensors have an allowable operation range, typically 27-40 psi. If your pressure is out of that range you'll get a service code, the flashing MIL and the blank indicator you're getting is because the sensors transmission is not being received by the WCM. The common cause for the fault is the battery failing, but your wheels could be an issue too. If you have custom wheels, especially 20" or larger, they can interfere with the RF signal transmission. (Chrome makes it even worse) The batteries in the sensors are intended to last 6-10 yrs, they usually don't. I assume you've tried resetting the TPMS with no change, you can use a strong magnet to trigger the sensors transmission which may allow a signal to get to the WCM while in the garage, but won't be a permanent solution. The aftermarket sensors work well enough, as long as they're from a reputable manufacturer, Schrader, Dorman, Siemens, etc. The TPMS sensors work on 2 frequencies, 315mhz and 433mhz. The WK up til '07 ran on 315mhz, and the '08-'10 ran on the 433mhz so when you purchase your replacements be sure to get the correct frequency. If you have a full size matched spare you'll have a 5th sensor that you could move it to the non functioning corner, but that's also a temp fix. Keep in mind that if it is in fact the battery, the rest of them are not far behind so be prepared to replace the rest of them.

wheels are not an issue for the signal to be transmitted. I went from 17's to 20's with no issue (for 6 months until they got stolen). like I said earlier, it sounds like a sensor went bad an if so it threw the tpms light.

I had a long lasting TPMS issue when I went with the aftermarket wheels. I ordered Dorman TPMS with the 433MHz to match the spec on the 08-10 WK. The sensors worked well (picked up the right reading) - but I kept getting a chime with message "Check TPM System". I contacted Dorman and they stated export model controllers are incompatible with aftermarket sensors (irrespective of using the correct frequency) - in the end recovered the OEM sensors and stuck those in the new wheels, problem solved. I would only go with OWM sensors in the future, for export models anyways. Not a problem for you but just wanted to share

Thanks for the heads up bro. I didnt think the exports were too much different.

Re: What did you do to your WK today?

Sent my WK in to be detailed today. Full exterior and interior so she should be pic-worthy for a shoot so I can actually put some pics in "my garage" on here. Can't wait to see her finished!
