Tire Pressure Sensors Light / 2011 SX4 Hatchback
Thereís one other, recent thread on this subject, and Iíve read through all the replies that have been posted so far. However, Iím still not clear on how to respond to this situation. So, taking a chance at being a bit redundant, hereís my dilemma.
My tires are inflated correctly as recommended by the sticker on the door, about 31 - 32 PSI.
However, my yellow TPS light on my instrument panel comes on sometimes and stays on for days, as is the case right now Ö then sometimes it doesnít come on for days which was the case all last week. Itís completely unpredictable.
Itís been very hot this week, as it has been in a lot of places. It was hot last week, too when the light was off.
Iíve had the 4 tire pressure sensors on the wheels checked by my tire provider/installer, and Iíve been told that theyíre working fine. However, he said he wasnít able to ďresetĒ something that only a dealer could reset. I have no idea what this is that needs resetting or why. Plus the local Suzuki dealer is no more.
My mechanic has advised me to simply ignore the yellow warning light when it comes on. So, Iím wondering, whatís the point of the damned thing?
I get the idea from other posts that Iíve read that this TPS feature is way more trouble than itís worth. If so, I wish I knew how to turn off the light for good. Can this be done by someone whoís not mechanically inclined Ö or have it done? If the latter, by whom?
Any thoughts or suggestions would be appreciated.
