Now when you say the sensor has not gone off after driving for an hour, are you meaning the blinking hasn't stopped or the blinking along with the low tire insignia on your instrument cluster HAS stopped. All I know is if you take a tire pressure gauge and fill your tires to 40 psi, if that is what's called for on the inside of your driver door and drive it for 15 or 20 minutes, the indication and warning should cease and everything should be normal. Hope that helps. Keep in mind that I have the 265/70R/17's on mine, so 40 psi was recommended, I'm sure that the TPMS is set to that.
Sorry yes I meant the light never stopped flashing the whole time. I have 17's as well, I will try putting 40 psi in tomorrow and see what happens. I didn't know you could top up with air, so that is a lot easier.

OMG!!!11111 If you add regular air to your nitrogen filled tires, it will cause an air bubble inside your tire because nitrogen is heaver than air. Then your tires will be out of balance and you will feel the vibration.

I also had the same issue, added air OK. Happens when it gets colder, I am in the great white north used to Metric. Change it to PSI.

Is this true? Can I add air or not? Seems to be quite a few who have added air and didn't notice vibrations?

Are there any "bubbles" in tthe atmosphere? If I recall correctly our atmosphere is roughly 78% nitrogen and 21% oxygen. The only gas bubbles around the shop today are from a guy that had Mexican for lunch.

Hahaaha, I just did a 400 mile round trip today, I have added regular air from a compressor to get the correct tire pressure on 2 separate occasions now, trust me there is no vibration...... That was a good one though.
