    Looks like my right rear tire has an air valve that doesn't allow me to fill up the tire. It's also prompting a check tire pressure light. Are these things really over $100? Has anyone here replaced them with a regular tire valve? Having a tire pressure sensor on an off road truck doesn't seem to make much sense considering that an owner might be constantly airing down the tires... :confused:

    Remove the valve core and see if its faulty. Maybe you can just replace that instead of the entire assembly.

    There is a reset button under the steering wheel that allows you to set the pressure of your tires to any pressure you'd like. If you air down, you can reset it. Air up, reset.

    It sure helps to let you know if you have a slow leak.

    you have a 2011 truck? take it in, and tell them to figure it out.
