I just put a set of 22's on and my TPM light keeps flashing.

How do I fix this?

I am assuming the new tires are not monitored?

I think you may have to take it to the dealer and have them recalibrate the computer to tell it not to monitor the tire pressure. I am not positive about that though.

If they are monitored and all the pressures are the same maybe a tire is out of balance???

Did you watch them change your rims? Ask them if they switched the "sensers" When I bougth my Magnum with 20 in rims, the same thing was happening. I took it back in and they said they had forgot to switch the sensers. This solved my problem. I hope this helps.

Bought the wheels over the internet and changed them myself. Do you know where the sensor is? Guess I can always call the dealer and find out.

Thanks!

Did you ever find out the answer. I just bought a used set of 22's and the stinking light is flashing. I don't mind that too much, but the chime is annoying. Where you able to get the sensors in the tires with a low profile tire?

As I've just found out, the sensors are are inside the tires. They should fit inside the new ones. I'm going to buy new sensors because I want to use the stock wheels for winter, and I'm not gonna keep switchuing them back and forth.

I was told without the sensors, the ESP and ABS systems will not function properly.

The sensor is part of the valve stem. You need all four sensors installed in the tires and then you may need to have the system reset in order for it to see the difference in the wheel size. Good luck

Ok don't worry I have the news right here..

After installing my 22's my light started blinking too, And no it doesn't mess with your ESP because it just activated the other night when taking a sharp turn @ around 55MPH and man it was kinda cool! So it still works.

As for the sensors you can use the old ones but they need a rebuild kit (New Washer) which sells for no more than 8 bucks per valve stem. Discount Tire does this and to do a total swap (Remove factory tires, Remove sensors, remove aftermarket tires, install sensors into aftermarket rim with new rebuild kit remount and balance) costs 55 to 60 dollars per corner! so roughly 200.00+ total (Average Walk In Customer).

Kinda pricey but well worth it??

This info came from a good friend who is a Manager @ Discount Tire here in San Diego.

Anyone who lives in SD and needs this done (CHEAPLY) or new tires (@ a Discount) let me know...


Ebay has them for around 30+ per sensor if u need new ones
