    Since I have had the TSB done on my rear springs and the BIllstein 5100's added to my front and a set of matching to add to the back, I have had an issue with the Tire Pressure light. I have been to the dealership twice and they have added air and taken it away both times and the light is back on again. Any ideas? Does anyone think the new shocks and the "little" lift I got, has caused my pressure light system to be thrown off?

    yes, that exact light is solid... its the exclamation one. I had the TSB done on my truck for the rear springs and it gave me a "raked" look.... it made my rear look higher... so I added the 5100's and set it to 1.75, but i decided i wanted my shocks to match in front and rear... so i bought the rear billstein shocks... i have 4 new shocks on the truck.... and it does set level now. They told me when i went in twice, that the rear was low... then the second time it was High.....

    I wonder if the light is on due to me being close to 40,000 miles? i still have the original set of tires on there.... I have been debating on if i want to get a bigger tire. I really don't know what my options could be with the trd off road package truck.

    this is the third time mine has come on. But it is just from the time that I had the new shocks put on the rear and front to level the truck. I have been to the dealership two times and they reset it, but it just came back on today.

    or a slow leak, or the spare, or something tire related... get all your tires checked

    Ok, going to the dealership to add air in tires... sigh.

    Go to WallyWorld and buy a DIGITAL tire gage and a U$10 air compressor.
    Check the pressure in all FIVE (5) tires.
    Set pressure. Door sticker has the PSI. Don't use gage on compressor, use the digital gage.
    Reset the TPMS light iaw the Manual.
    Monitor light. If it comes back on solid, check tire pressure on all 5 tires. Find bad tire. Fix bad tire. If it comes on blinking, TPMS has failed. Go to dealer to get it fixed.

    I have an 07 and the spare light turned on for me. Unfortunately i checked all the other tires first. finally figured it must be the spare and it was.
