"...then my curb view mirror disappeared..."
What? The mirror disappeared? Did some one steal it while you were at the dealer? How could they say you never had one? If it was removed there must be something it was mounted to still on the vehicle. That would prove it was there.

#18 of 34 TPMS frequency?
Sep 05, 2008 (3:36 pm)
I just bought a new Sportage EX. It has tire pressure monitoring, which I assume is a wireless broadcast thing. Well, I want to add a Dolphin Sonar Step wireless reverse sensing system to the vehicle, so I would like to know what frequency the TPMS system uses.
In other words, will they affect each other?

Your best bet is to talk to the dealer or the installer of the Dolphin Sonar Step system. My guess is you probably will not have a problem.

I opted for a hard-wired system, so there will not be a frequency interference issue.
#21 of 34 TPMS FAULTY LIGHT & REMOTE START PROBLEMS
Dec 19, 2008 (4:37 am)
I just bought ( Oct 2008) a 2008 Chevy Trailblazer LT and paid extra to have a remote start installed by the dealer. Since then I have had my truck into the dealership for "repairs" at least 3 times related to the TPMS. All of the sudden my remote start would not work and the TPMS light came on with the DIC message Check Tire Pressures. Since the "repairs" the TPMS light still comes on with the Check Tire Pressures message and my remote start doesn't work. The last time they determined the remote start and TPMS had been wired together??
Presumably they fixed the problem but when the dealer went to reset the TPMS it would not work right same problem all over and now I am told to go to the outside vendor they used to install the remote start directly to have them fix the problem?
Sorry for the long blog but I am getting a bit frustrated. Does anyone know of this similar problem and how to resolve???
#22 of 34 tpms fitment
Feb 21, 2009 (5:18 am)
Purchased some tpms sensors for my aftermarket wheels. They seem to fit okay, except the body of the tpms sensor is not resting on the wheel surface. Is it supposed to be? (hoping the image appears here)
#23 of 34 TPMS - Should NOT be mandatory!!!
Feb 22, 2009 (11:39 am)
The mandatory TPMS is just another bureaucratic and unnecessary expensive burden placed on car owners, most likely to pay off some special interest groups. If you rotate your tires - you have to get the system reset at extra cost! If you buy new tires - the sensor valve core and seal need to be replaced at extra cost! If you buy new tires and a wheel sensor is bad - you HAVE to buy a new sensor which can cost up to $200 each! And the wheel sensors have a battery which eventually goes dead! TPMS should be an option. Are Americans that lazy and stupid that they need a TPMS? Just use a pencil gauge to measure and set tire pressure like millions of car owners have do!

I just 4 tires on my 2004 Quest minivan with TPMS. I wasn't charged anything to reset the TPMS. Same with my car. ONe place was Sears the other was BJ wholesale. All the places I got quotes from did not charge extra either.
The required TPMS stems from the Explorer/Firestone issue. The main cause for the tire failure was the low pressure in the tires that caused the treads to separate and caused the Explorer to flip. The TPMS is designed to alert the driver that the tires are low. The system is not perfect but completely necessary since the sidewall on most tires are stiffer than inthe past. It is very difficult to see if a tire is low.
