Question Tire pressure sensors

Batteries are dead on both pressure sensors. Does anyone know if replacing them with regular valve stems will do away with the dash screen telling me the damn batteries are low or dead? Thanks Its a 2010 model.

If you replace them with standard stems the TPS system will think they are dead, period. And continue to illuminate the light. A dealer may be able to disable the light off, if it was an option on the Con. but probably not.

As an aside: I had dead TPS stems on a Nissan, I thought about changing to non-TPS stems when I bought new tires. I was told that I could replace them myself but the tire store could not as it altered the vehicle and made them liable.

They think they would\could be liable for damages if the vehicle was in a tire related accident I guess. It is considered a safety system and cannot be disabled by them or left in disrepair even though there is an option: a tire gauge. I concede it could be a snow job but I didnt really have the interest to have legal discussion with the tire folks as I wanted the TPS system working on my family SUV. I was in for four tires so the extra to get all TPS sensors working again was not that much more.

Try to disconnect your battery from the bike and than reconnect.I had problem but it went away after I started riding. I think from sitting in cold garage and lack of use.Sometimes disconnecting battery will reset all electronics to factory default.

Hi new guy here. I have the same problem. I'm not sure if it's weak batteries or cold air. After my tires warm up a bit everything starts working. I'm going to let it go until it starts flashing and keeps flashing in the summer time.

Just did the sensors on my 2010 while I was spooning on some new michelins...

Good write up here with some pics..

Better replacement TPMS batteries

Instead or ordering for digikey and paying $20 to ship $5 worth of batteries I went down to the local batteries plus store and they put some pins on a set of cr 2032 for me... Pretty easy fix , there is a little Phillips head screw under the sticker on the bottom of the sensor that will need to come out to get them apart, then they clip together ... No more lights !

Send a message via AIM to Lou zx12r
I'm getting ready to do them also. I have a 2009 and I was told these were original batteries. I have a set of tires ready to go on once the snow melts and batteries from digit. In case you didn't know you can clear the message from the display by pressing both buttons. It does light up a warning light on the dash but at least you can see the other functions.
