Default Tpms

ive been having an intermittent message that my right rear wheel is not registering any pressure despite it looking fine. it doesnt happen all the time but it does occur. any thoughts as to why? i have the hid's in and ive read b4 that they can interfere with the tpms but does the rears communicate with the fronts and then send the signal? i have my first oil change coming up so i was going to have them check but any thoughts until then?

HID's and TPMS are not connected in anyway. A TPMS sensor in the wheel can fail as can the receiver end of the sensor affixed to the vehicle. I suspect one or the other has an intermittent problem.

Check the harness and make sure the connections are tight as well.

I have the HIDExtra HIDs in lows and fogs. I've noticed that often when I turn the fogs on the tire pressure warning light comes on for a second or two on the dash. It does not stay on. It is definitely related to HIDs though. I suspect that when the HIDs start up they interfere with the RF signals between the tire sensors and the receivers.

This is a likely scenerio since the sensors communicate with the WIN module in the dash.

im thinking it may be a possible link. i notice that if i turn on my hid's when i first turn on the ignition, the tpms sensor has a higher likelihood of going off. if i wait like 30 seconds then turn them on i usually dont have a problem. but im due for my first oil change in a week or two so ill have them check it w/o letting them know of the hid's and see what they come up with. versus them just saying they are causing it.
