Tire Pressure

Recommended Posts

About 3 months ago my TPMS showed that one of my tires was low.  As I was driving to the station to put some air in it, it dropped again (this time to 3).  I panicked, pulled over, got out and looked and the tire was not even low, much less flat.  So I started driving again and it went back up and then back to normal and the yellow warning light went off.  It does this all the time.  I had new tires put on back in Nov and the shop that did that for me tried to replace the sensor, but it did not help either.  I had it at a Dodge dealership for another small repair and asked them to fix it.  They had no clue.  They said it didn't happen while it was there.  (YES--it comes and goes and there is no rhyme or reason to it.)  Then the sensor on one of the other tires did go out and I got the flashing yellow warning to service the TPMS.  I went to a different dealership and they replaced that sensor and RESET the TPMS.  I was thinking that would fix the first issue but it didn't.  NOW, two of the tires (both tires on the drivers side) have the original issue. Sometimes it even shows a lot higher pressure like 70, etc. I have read some of the other posts on here and see that there may be an issue with the value stem.  Could that be my issue???  2011 Dodge Journey Crew.  2 photos attached----

Can't say for sure but the sensors do have batteries in them and they have a life span.  I'd start there and replace all of them and see if the issue goes away.  If not, then you know the issue lies in the system reading the sensors.
