Okay, so I have read some threads on this issue, and then read some more of them. I have been unable to locate a thread that matches my issue exactly, and about $200 later and still no resolve, I am turning to all of you for some guidance.
I am getting a single bong intermittently, then the evic displays "check TPM system", then the tire pressures are displayed. All pressures match exactly, none of them flash, and the separate light in the gauge cluster does NOT come on. I have removed all the wheels for cleaning a couple of times in the last 6 months, while doing this, although I am not losing any pressure at any wheel, I have bubble checked for leaks, none found. I have replaced two of the sensors, one due to corrosion and one that my local NTB tech said "this one is probably the bad one because it took much longer for my tool to read it" so I did. Darn it! same warning again two days later.
I have also lowered pressures, one at a time, and only slightly, in an attempt to make sure that each transponder was seeing the correct tire, and yes, they all are seeing the correct positions, no switching pressures or anything abnormal to be noted within the system.
So, if apparently nothing is out of order, what do I look for next? Are there any tests I have missed? I certainly don't want to start throwing transponders, and really don't want to have to do what my tech buddy mentioned yesterday (computer), but that was obviously a shot in the dark.
HELP! I am at a loss at this point, out of cash now too since I will be buying tires soon
. Any ideas? Any and all guidance is appreciated.
