    The other day I got the TPI blinking.
    Got home and checked, all above 32lbs.
    Took a ride and the indicator was still blinking before it went solid.

    Any suggestions?
    TIA

    Blinking TPMS indicator typically means one or more tire pressure sensors have failed.

    Probably failed. Take it to a shop who can check out which of one has failed.

    My 2011 is on borrowed time. Check your spare tire too.

    Around 7-10 years is typical, although some last longer. I replaced the sensors in my 07 in 2021. They were still working, but I was getting new tire and there was no extra charge to install new sensors while mounting new tires. I bought mine from Amazon. They have been working perfectly for almost 2 years now.

    These will fit your truck. No sense in only replacing one, do them all.

    Amazon.com: MORESENSOR Signature Series 315MHz TPMS Tire Pressure Sensor 4-Pack | Preprogrammed for Select 200+ American Brand Models | Replacement for 9L3Z-1A189-A | Clamp-in | NX-S025-4 : Automotive


    And you'll need to buy a 5th one for the spare on that truck. I'm thinking 2008 was the last year they put them in the spare.

    Amazon.com: MORESENSOR Signature Series 315MHz TPMS Tire Pressure Sensor | Preprogrammed for Select 270+ Japanese Brand Models | Replacement for 42607-33011 | Clamp-in | NX-S008 : Automotive

    If your spare is over 10 years old I'd replace it too. Most tire stores won't work with you if the spare is too old. I picied up a decent used tire and paid $30 for the tire and to get it mounted.
