I see what you mean Denny, but my point is, they loose a couple pounds, no big thing. The preassure goes up and down with the temp. I hate her freaking out every time the light comes on. I got it under control!

And I see what you mean.  Isn't it possible to buy a car without them?  I mean, I know you're not gonna buy a new car just to alleviate this, but in the future?

oh sure not all cars have them, but like you said, it's not gonna make or break the deal. I guess it must just be my time of the month.  ;D

Thought this was all about passing gas. Sorry weaze.

My 07 VW didn't come stock with that feature. I passed on it.

If you have a full sized spare tire, buy new non sending unit plain valve stems
for all 4 tires.....take the sending unit valve stems out and replace them with the
regular valve stems... break the bead on your spare and then just chuck the sending
unit ones into the interior of the spare tire...pressure it up with all them little devils
 inside at the happy required pressure and smile big. If you get a low pressure
alarm, check your spare tire...done.   ;D

Um, Barry.....see the contradiction here?

Boy do you have a lot to learn about women weaze!
Even if you only think they MIGHT have lost a pound or two, you say how great they look.   Shuh!  ::)

There must be a fuse you can pull out, right?

Tape over the light. Problem solved. That fuse might do something else too....

Tire pressure sensors have been around since mid 80's, are mandated by law for any light (<10,000 lbs) vehicle manufactured after september 2007.  Sorry conspiracy theorists. Also generally you need a fluctuation of 20 to 30 percent difference in tire pressure to set it off. While a responsible vehicle owner would have caught  much smaller fluctuations and prevented the warning light illumination, the sensors do  go bad.   ;D

I hear you. I don't have any tire pressure lights, but I've got one damned loud seat belt buzzer that I'd like to shoot if I could ever find it.

I have a Toyota Tacoma with a seat belt buzzer that dings for about 2 minutes, annoying as hell - especially when something on the passenger seat sets it off. I looked it up on line how to shut it off. Found it on a Tacoma forum. Some kind of sequential steps you have to go through. You might find the same for your vehicle.

Thanks. I'll look into that. Probably a better fix than using a 45.

That sequence is probably in the owner's manual. Did it on my F150.

My biggest issue with the all wheel drive vehicles is if you damage one tire, you get to replace all four even if they only have a few thousand miles on them. Dear wife hit a pot hole with her Forester and damaged a tire, had to replace all of them. Tires are a major expense. You can buy a lot of malt with $700....

The warning came on in the Ford I drive at work a while back but the indicator is this abstract symbol of what I now understand to be a cross section of droopy tire.  I kept looking at thing thinking, "What the eff is that supposed to mean?"  I guess the words tires ,pressure or low would have been confusing.
Thank you BEER!

I have a leak in my left rear tire right at the curve before the sidewall that was plugged. Still leaking so needs replacement IMO. My experience is you can't fix this. Anyway the Continental tires have over 30K but look worn so I'm replacing all of them on Monday with some Eagle GT's. And I wasn't expecting to dish out the $500 at this time.

There goes my hopes of a BBQ Guru for xmas. :-\

That would be discriminating against people who don't speak English.   ::)
