Service TPMS Warning-05 Yukon XL
I left the gym last night and got a "Service TPMS" message on my display. I scrolled through the tire pressures and the LR was not reading. I shut the truck off and restarted it. The message remained. I drove about 5 miles and the sensor started reading again. Luckily, If I have to have the sensor changed I have a $20 off any purchase at the local tire place. Anyone dealt with these before? I have zero experience with the system so any insight will be helpful. Is the not working, then working again an indication of something? Thanks

I have no experience, just some thoughts:
- do they have an internal battery, or a built-in generator?
- do they constantly transmit, or try to "talk" to the receiver?
- they take a lot of pounding, they must be very durable.
- how do they last as long as they do?Ray

The most recent issue I had was when I put my stock wheels back on. I did not dismount & remount the tire but one of the TPMS monitors was not registering and pressure was showing as zero. I called the dealership and they said it just needs to be reprogrammed; that fixed the issue. Where your issue sounds like it is intermittent it could be that the sensor is starting to fail. Is it old? Having a sensor fixed can actually be kind of pricey so it's good that you have the $20 off coupon. As you know though, keep an eye on it to see if it is a recurring issue or was an anomaly.

I would assume the internal (non-changeable) battery is failing. When I bought my Escalade mine were all dead but I had no lights on the dash so I did not even know that they were dead. I was told about $100 to replace all 4.

I think that there is a battery in them. It is probably failing. I assume that they are original. The sensor is $59. The tire place wants $79 total to do it. With $20 off I basically just pay for the sensor. It is acting ok now. I have lifetime balancing and rotation from the place. So, I will have them balance and rotate them. They "relearn" the system for free as part of that. They have a tool that they walk to each tire with, the horn honks and they move to the next one.
