Another TPMS post!

God I hate these things!! My 08 would give me the check tire monitor message with dashes for the tire pressure sometimes but not always for the RR tire. After researching it I figured it was a dying battery and had the sensor replaced a couple of weeks ago. When I put the tire back on I figured it was a good time to rotate and relearn the tires which I did. All was fine til yesterday when the LF tire started doing the same thing! Its definately not the tire that just had the sensor replaced. I figure it is the same issue but am wondering if thats too much of a coincidence. Probably just being paranoid but you think its possible I have an issue with the receiver? I am going to get the LF sensor replaced but just wanted to get some opinions. TIA

I would say not a coincidence. The battery that was replaced was nearly 10 years old. The battery now in question is nearly 10 years old. The batteries in the 2 remaining tires are nearly 10 years old, so they probably will also fail in the not too distant future.

Yeah, thats exactly what I am thinking but I guess I just needed to hear it from someone else!

Yes, those batteries die and set the light in the dash. Next tire change , replace them.
