    This may be the issue, the wheel that has the blown tire does not have one.

    Gonna check with discount tomorrow, though i suspect the missing sensor is the issue.


    Thanks for the replies

    Missing sensor is definitely a problem. The system will not clear without it.

    Discount should be able to hook you up.
    Be sure to write down the serial number of the new sensor before having the tire mounted.

    There is a small antenna next to your tire that sent signal to the TPMS.

    Welp.... looks like this minor annoyance on the dash is going to become a money grab......

    At least four (4) States are already using an illuminated TPMS Warning Light on the dash as grounds to Fail you at Safety Inspection time.
    Won't be long I suppose before the rest follow suit.

    How did we ever survive without this ? We've come a looong way. o_O

    I had the LTPWS light start flashing last weekend. All the pressures were perfect, including the spare. It just kept flashing for days, no matter how many times or how long I pressed the button, it would not turn off. Did some reading through a few threads here on TW and decided to turn my spare "right side up" with the valve pointing up to the underside of the bed. The light turned off the very next day. Just wanted to chime in here FWIW.
