    Just got notified by the dealer I bought my truck at and they said the TPMS Sensors on the TRD models have been failing and need to be reprogrammed. Anyone else get an email like this?

    I just got the email today and the Service Adviser said the TPMS system had to be reprogrammed because some are not reading the low pressures.

    I with they'd just remove the whole system alltogether. As far as i'm concerned it's nothing but a pita and a big money pit down the road when the batteries need replacing. The dealers are probably laughing all the way to the bank. :rolleyes:

    It is federally mandated to be on all new vehicles after a certain year.

    Only because the vast majority of vehicle owners are too lazy to check their air pressures once a month. All it takes is a minute, but it's too much for most. So we all get saddled with a crappy system that costs more than it's worth.

    It wasn't Firestones fault that Ford owners were barrel-rolling their vehicles because they were too lazy to check their tire pressure. From that we all got TPMS shoved down our throats.:rant:

    Actually, it was Ford's fault for recommending 28psi on a tire intended to be inflated to 40.
