The wife's car has had this pop up on her car display. Basically the low tyre pressure warning has come up, tyre pressures are fine, I have reset the TPMS but the message comes back again. I have read that it may be related to an ABS module which is silly money. Anyone had their TPMS cause a problem? I'm hoping that it's down to a flat battery in one of the tpms sensors.

Could just be a dodgy sensory, surely?

Assume you've googled it for that make and model

There are two types of TPMS - if youíve got in valve sensors then replacing it could fix it.  If youíve got externally assessed sensor it can be triggered by differ

Can be a dirty or faulty sensor or even going over a pothole or going up a kerb can missalign the sensor.

Usually an easy quick fix but at worst probably a new sensor which doesnt cost much and is pretty much plug and play with a couple of screws.
