If this isn't weird I don't know what is. I disconnected the battery for about 20 minutes or so and when I reconnected and started up the truck the red vehicle security indicator light went away, but the tire pressure management system light is on and solid and there's a message that says Service Tire Pressure System. So it appears the Tire Pressure system is the culprit.
That isn't what is weird though. What's weird is that just a week or so ago my tire pressure system was reporting low on a tire that ended up having a piece of medal in which I had to get removed and patched. Only 2 days later the exact OPPOSITE side tire started showing low and kept dropping as the day went on so I assumed the bad tire was't patched properly and the tires were balanced and rotated and that tire ended up making its way on the opposite side. I called and spoke to the guy at America's Tire who did the work and he said that the tire was in the same spot and he didn't rotate them. So I inspected further and saw a small nail in the tire! What is odd is that the tire pressure system at the time was acting a little funky. While it was reporting 100% accurately that the tires were low, on a couple of occasions when I filled the tires up above capacity, the TPMS showed the correct air pressure, but it still blinked for the bad tire as "low". For example, after I put 38lbs of air in one of the tires, the TPMS reflected the 38lbs correctly, but that tire was blinking and saying low.
But after both tires were patched and filled I had no issues with the TPMS at all for a week so I figured all the issues were done with. But about a week later the TPMS is showing dashes in all 4 tire areas and the message is saying to get the Tire Pressure System Serviced (which i'll do soon.)
Anyway, what's the chances of having 2 tires with nails/medal go bad in a week and right after have the TPMS go faulty? I wonder if both of those issues had any bearing on screwing up the TPMS?
And as far as the vehicle security indicator goes, I think that may of been a system glitch that reset with the battery disconnect. I had or possibly still "have" a separate issue where it looks like either one of my ballasts or caps on my hids is bad. I did swap out the ballast but the same issue was present and when I move that one capacitor around a little with the lights on I get flicker out of that headlight so I'm thinking that one cap is bad. I did find a sweet spot and use 3M industrial double sided tape to hold that ballast and capacitor down and haven't had any issues since...but I ordered a pair of caps just in case as they were $9 and I didn't want to take any chances.
Man....sometimes when it rains it pours.
