You never said you actually put a gauge on them. Is the pressure right or not? If a pressure gauge says the pressure is right but your light is on, then you possibly have a bad sensor. These systems are like an idiot light in the dash. they have a threshold and when it's crossed, it triggers the light. You may have a sensor that trips it in the wrong spot. Also, the dealer was jerking you, these sensors trip on low pressure not high pressure.

I had a Jeep Liberty with tire pressure senors and it would also track the spare tire pressure. It was annoying on cold days, so you may want to check the spare.

I made this comment in the past. I believe it applies here to anyone that cant buy and properly use an air gauge.

The stupidity of the humanity is only exacerbated by the fact that morons are not culled out by predators; and stupid people breed like rabbits.

im not one of them guys that checks there air pressure in the tires every morning, to make sure i get the best mpg, i can tell when tires are low, they were not, the sensor comes off and on, and i new the guy was full of crap when he told me it was becasue it had to much air in them, i just didnt have time to deal with them, why is it so hard to find a decent dealership, ill just make sure the dealership knows i aint messin around next time i go, and make sure it gets fixed, not one to let people walk over me, and as one guy said before, it is a dummy light, bad thing is, the dummy lights never work like they are supose to, more of a pain in the a$$ than good, but owell

Actually, I believe in the system and wish I had it. We all have gauges and can check our air pressure, this system was not designed to replace that. It's there for safety. Who the hell can accurately tell me what their pressure is on a long hwy trip? Your gauge isn't as useful once those tires are heated up. If you are towing a trailer and you develop a leak after that last fuel stop, you really won't know it until it's too late. This system will at least give you a head's up that something is wrong. If you didn't have an oil pressure gauge, wouldn't you at least want an idiot light?
