Default Need Help With TPMS/Tire

My TPMS been on ever since I got aftermarket rims but it did not bother me any. But recently, my rear passenger tire has been losing alot of air during trips (the tires are fairly new) I do not see any holes or nails in the tire so I did some research about the issue and what I think it might be is that my sensor is leaking air and needs to be replaced (plus the tpms for it cant reset for some reason).

Can anyone try to put me in the right direction with this issue?

Maybe take it to a tire shop and have them put a rebuild kit on that sensor.

Default Re: Need Help With TPMS/Tire

Take the wheel that is leaking, and take it off of the car. Inflate the tire to 40psi. Find a container large enough to set the tire in...kiddy pool works great...set the tire inside and fill with water just over the wheel lip at the bottom of the tire...4" of water or so. Slowly rotate the tire in the water and look for the bubbles. This will tell you EXACTLY where you are leaking. If you don't have a container large enough, get a spray bottle with some soapy water and spray the crap out of the wheel. Concentrate on the wheel lip and the valve stem.

If your tires are properly inflated and the light won't reset, you may have a bad battery in one of the sensors. Does your light flash briefly when you start the car and then go solid, or just stay on solid?
