Tire pressure warning light
« on: July 13, 2013, 08:47:02 PM »
 :435: over the last couple of weeks I've had a situation where my tire pressure monitor light comes on and my psi readings are low. I've stopped to air up but the tires are full. It happened again today. I sprayed soap on the rims and valve stems but cant find a leak. When checked with my pocket gauge the readings are correct. I took it in to my dealer who double checked what I've done. They are going to contact triumph to see if anyone else has experienced the same thing.  Any ideas or suggestions as to what the problem is.

there is at least one current post describing tire pressure warning malfunction.

Finally got an answer from triumph regarding incorrect psi readings/ warnings They believe the batteries in the sensors are bad and will replace/ repair under warranty. Both wheels need to be removed to access.

Try what I did, over-prssure the tire, deflate then return to proper pressure.
Hope it clears up your problem.

On a slightly different point there must be quite an algorithm as the pressures go up and down a lot depending on temperature of Tyre based on speed and ambient and the light does not come on then? In France the pressures varied by as much as 7 degrees that I noticed.
