    Well last night I took my new truck to Sears to have them switch the tire to black out. They came white out and that is not how I like them. 3 hours, scratched rims, and now my tire light is on (even after I asked them if they adjust it and he did not answer me). I set the pressure back and tried to reset the light using the owners manual. The light stays on after blinking for about 30 seconds or more. The manual says to call the dealer, any suggestions what this is?

    It sounds like a ride back to Sears to make them fix it correctly. Dealership might hit you for costs since you went outside of their business to get the work done (which I don't blame you, I haven't been to the dealership for service once except for the TSB).

    same shit happened to me a while ago, the asshats at the tire center broke one of the tire sensors when i had them plug a tire. luckily the warranty covered the new sensor but i was pissed when i found out what happened:mad:

    Yep, big problem, dealer may charge you to reset them. My tire company did the same thing, they could not fix the light issue, so I made them dismount all the tires and get the code numbers off the sensors so I would have them when I took it to the dealer. I busted the kid when he was remounting them, he did not rebalance the tires, so his boss chewed his ass and made him do it, good thing I was watching! My dealer was cool, it ended up being a broken sensor (tire companys fault) but my dealer replaced it under waranty. Good luck!

    blinking and staying on means one of the sensors is broken...

    Well after a trip to Sears and several calls...Sears is stepping up and doing the right thing. They ordered all new factory TPMS sensors, and got a quote of $657 to fix the rims. They were set get it all done. Instead, I asked if they would be willing to put the $657 wheel repair toward different rims and I would gladly pay the difference. Sears regional manager said "That Suck's but sounds fair" and now I am a happy customer again. I ordered the TRD 5 spoke rims. Oh course, I am having the Toyota Dealer do all the work!
