Default Tire pressure monitor

This 2010 Ram is my first experience with tire pressure monitors and the information they supply leaves me a little mystified.
The first time I used the check, the left front showed there was more air than the left. I checked it with a gauge when the tires were cold and it showed that was indeed the case so I let a little air out till there was a balance of front tire pressure by the gauge.
The next day, first off the indicator showed the left front to have less air! Then suddenly both fronts had the same but the backs showed a different but matching pressure and this was followed by an indication that all four tires had matching pressure.
On my trip home however, the left front showed low again.
My questions are: How reliable are these monitors? Is the change and discrepancy of the left front pressure (at times anyway) due to a faulty sensor? Anyone had a similar experience?

The monitors are not designed to be as accurate as a gauge and as you probably already know, pressures will change as temps change.

As you drive and the tires "warm" up...you'll see pressure changes occur. The outdoor temp will also play a role in changes in tire pressure. I wouldn't try inflating or deflating them as a way to make them match. Just be sure they all have the recommended pressures in them when they are cold and they'll adjust accordingly to your driving conditions...
