    Default TPMS Light

    Not sure what the deal is with my Tire Pressure Monitoring System...

    I continue to see the TPMS warning light. Even after new tires, balancing, and aired up to correct pressure It still goes off.


    I've tried 32psi all around up to 40psi and will still light up occasionally... Does anyone see this with their car? Mine is an '08 so please lmk what year your car is.

    Anyone know what it could be or why?

    I'm guessing bad sensor as well.....if you're an 08 and are still under warranty, make the stealership figure it out.

    Its faulty. I bought my 08 not long ago and the same thing happened to me. No matter what pressure the tires are at the light will randomly come on and turn off. Took it back to the dealership and now all is well. I know that u said u have no warranty so maybe your nearest mazda dealership can give you a hand. That thing is annoying. Especially at night lol

    Totally random. It hasn't come on in a few days now, but since I'm talkin about it, bet it comes on at lunch.

    Thanks Food

    take it over to discount tire and have them look at it. would be cheaper since you don't have warranty

    they probably broke one of your sensors then and didn't realize it...?
    my wife's car had a nail in it... took it to discount and they repaired the tire for free. a week later and the tire light came on again. so took it back and turns out they damaged the stem during the nail repair... so replaced the stem/valve for free and all is good so far.
