    TPMS 'failure' after tire change

    Tried searching, but didn't locate anything similar (not that it wasn't there...)

    Had my front tire replaced very recently.  After about 100 miles I get the red idiot light on the dash for TPMS and system fault flashes on the digital dash and then the red light stays on and the dash reads normal.  Scrolling through shows the front pressure reading as "- -", the rear tire pressure reads fine.  This happens about 10 minutes into my riding every time (the light comes on, the dash flashes the warning).  All normal each time I re-start bike until about 10 minutes pass, then red light on...

    I have two thoughts:

    1- The batteries in the TPMS are going out.  But, I do not ever recall seeing a battery low warning, just the system fault warning (it goes away fast so I forget the actual wording).  They are the factory originals so about 6 years old

    2- The shop damaged the front one when the dismounted/mounted my tire

    This is my daily work transportation so I would prefer not to remove a brand new tire if I don't have to.  If the consensus is that this is what happens when the batteries go out I will attempt to replace the battery to avoid having to re-program/connect new TPMS sensors to the ECM. 

    Problem currently 'fixed' with a square of black tape on the gauge.  Dang light is bright when it's dark out!

    So, batteries or shop goof?

    My guess is that if the tyre fitter had wacked it whilst working then surely it would have stopped working straight away?

    That was a thought I had also.  It just seemed suspect due to timing.
    Like they whacked it, said oops, tried to repair it.  And it failed soon thereafter after a few road bumps and such.

    Due to age I was leaning towards batteries, but want to turn over all the stones.

    Thanks for the input!

    Never had one go bad like that. Sensors on my Explorer ran with low battery warnings for several years but carried on working fine. My guess is, the tyre fitter goofed.
    ...we are reviewing telemetric information in our mission simulator and will advise...

    Hi rpeters549,

    Had almost the same fault as you. Here is a link to the thread

    best regards, Shemogolee

    After reading that thread (sorry I missed it searching) it sounds like a new battery did the trick or did you purchase totally new units?

    Looks like I will purchase replacement units. I have never seen a low battery warning either, but otherwise identical to Shemogee.

    Sorry for the double post. The one above didn't show up on my refresh so I thought I hit a wrong button or something. 🙄

    Check ebay for any new ones that might be listed at a reduced price, and if there are pictures and they are the 2 piece plastic bodies battery replacement in them is not very difficult.  I would put brand new batteries in any new ones I bought that had the Trophy part number on the label.  There is also a date on the label if you are in doubt.
