TPMS system alert

Recommended Posts

Wife's 2012 Journey TPMS system alert intermittently comes on despite tire pressures not being low.  Could this be caused by the sensor in a tire having a weak battery leading to low or intermittent signal or do these sensors just tend to stop altogether?  My Dodge Nitro is 4 years older and doesn't show any such issue so I wonder whether sensor battery life is even a likely suspect.

 

Does the alert just show when a tire is below pressure spec or would it also be triggered if say one tire was higher pressure than the rest?

I had one sensor go bad two years into owning my DJ. After trying to fix it myself, I took it in and got it replaced... one year later,  no problems. My mechanic showed it to me and it had a little crack on it. It's not really common, but it happens. If the rest are fine, your main module should be fine.
