TPMS Reading Blank On One Wheel
 
Over the past year, I have an intermittent "Service Tire Pressure Monitoring System" message on the EVIC as well as the little amber tire pressure warning sign accompanied with a chime. It happens some days, then will go away, but it's progressively getting worse. At first, I thought it was the system learning my bigger tires, but when I scroll through to the individual tire pressures, one wheel came up with "--" After doing the pinch weld mod, I moved my sensors higher in the wheel well & thought that might be the culprit. But when I rotated the tires, the blank reading followed the same tire. Does this mean that I need to replace the sensor on the wheel with a new unit?

Yes, if the problem is following the tire it is the electronics in the valve stem that is likely the cause.
