The tire guys at the dealership sent mine thru the ringer, I had them order a replacement due to very high, then very low readings(obviously busted), but after about a week it has somehow fixed itself :confused:

Maybe a recalibration will fix it???

it went from 6 to 19 on the drive to work
maybe its just gunked up? who knows. i did the reset thing, which didnt make her spring to 30.

The sensors do not like being dirty. I went thru two complete sets of them due to the dealership tire shop using AXLE GREASE(yes AXLE GREASE) "to help them seat". Needless to say it screwed my wheel balance up as well. I only found this out after Discount replaced my tires. Friggin idiots :rant2:

But my sensors simply registered "0" and would keep me out of PDM after about a day of being replaced.

If you have foriegn objects (aka crap) in your tires you have more issues than a faulty reading from a tire pressure sensor.

Urbanski,

Try getting them retrained, if that doesn't work your going to need to replace at least one sensor. Btw, in the process of retraining a TPMS it would be directly obvious if a sensor has failed because it wouldn't allow the system to fully train.

urbanski,
I had a TPM that developed a problem that caused it to read low (different values at different times) or zero sometimes. After two attempts to show the erroneous reading to the dealer (it would start working properly again about the time I arrived at the dealer) it finally stayed in its failure mode until I could show it to the dealer. They replaced the TPM and there have been no similar problems since. Your TPM is defective. Replace it.

Could be as simple as the battery going flat in the TPM.

The easy solution for you would be to send your CCWs and I'll trade them even up for a set of stock wheels & tires w/ new TPMs guaranteed to work.
