Wait ... you mean that's not the "GOOD TRACTION LIGHT" that comes on every October when I put my winter tires on.

I just live with it.

See's anything less it flashes. Then stays on steady
This may be the issue, the wheel that has the blown tire does not have one.

'09 or '10, they eliminated the spare sensor.

But if the rims have ever been swapped, the new sensors may not be programmed into the ECU. They not only have to be there, the computer has to recognize the electronic serial number.

Also, since the truck is older, the batteries in the sensors may be dead. They are lithium button cell batteries and life is anywhere from 5-8 years.

Go to a tire shop and ask them to check your TPMS programming. Discount/America's will do it for free.
Gonna check with discount tomorrow, though i suspect the missing sensor is the issue.


Thanks for the replies

Missing sensor is definitely a problem. The system will not clear without it.

Discount should be able to hook you up.
Be sure to write down the serial number of the new sensor before having the tire mounted.
