TPMS issue/error

ok i have a 2010 camaro LS on 24s. had rims on my car maybe a year now. My issue is. Lately, if not every few days. My front left TMPS sensor goes off while driving. at first im like damn got to replace a tire, got a nail or something. i checked tire pressure and its at 44psi(required pressure based on manual). took wheel off and ran water over it to see if any leaks or nails. and nothing. basically i ended up going to local gas station and putting maybe 4 seconds of air in it. and checked pressure. STILL 44psi. i get home turn the car on, came back to get groceries out. turned the car back on and no more TPMS error. In the past 2 weeks this has happend maybe 3 times. I went on a mini vacation 3 hour drive some where, hour into the drive. TPMS comes on again. By the time i reached my destination error went off.

My question is do i need to replace my front left sensor? or the tire?(i doubt its my tire due to my tire is showing proper pressure)
I am pretty sure my dealership will not assist me in anything dealing with warranty due to they wouldnt even do a simple tire rotation because of my rims! WTF lol. I definitly do not want to get stranded some where with a flat tire, or get a flat while driving which would be even worse. pay a tow truck etc etc etc

any help would be good. looking on ebay/amazon now for TPMS and tires lol

Have you added air? Was that tire the first that was pumped up? Sounds like that sensor could have a problem. If you got any water in the tire from the compressor it can damage the sensor.

Do you remember if that was the first tire you added air to? Gas station air supplies are bad for getting condensation built up. You should always blowsome air throug before adding it to your tires to make sure there is no water in the air tank or lines.

Before you had the problem? And was it actually low when you added the air or was the sensor already wrong?

the sensor was saying low pressure basically(i dont know why it doesnt tell you what the pressure actually is, but i digress lol) but i have one of those tire pressure thingies from advance auto parts and it tells u the pressure, because it pushes the white thing out to the pressure its pushing out. and everytime i did that it told me 44-46. basically my tire has air

You can check what the sensor says the pressure is on your DIC. Just press the menu button on the left stalk then use the ring till it shows the pressures. There will be a diagram of the car showing the pressures at each wheel. If they have been programed correctly they should show each position. Have you checked all 4 tires with the gauge to make sure it's the left front?

thats the thing. when the error comes up it shows a BLANK picture of the front left wheel with no pressure on it. all the other tires show pressure. when you read the manual when this "error" comes up it just tells you to check your pressure. i get the tire pressure light(just had to bring out the manual). just went to car and cranked it up and no more tire pressure light. it shows pressure at 45psi. i think its my TPMS system. because after reading the manual. the tire pressure system blinks a certain to let you know EITHER you have low pressure OR check your TPMS system

Rotate the tires and reset the positions and see if the error follows the tire. If it does it has to be the sensor...

That is the only way I know to check it without breaking down the tire off the rim. Just swap the two front tires and then do a relearn on them and see if the problem follows the tire.

Probably because that someone else swapped them out. They are not responsible for damage if they did not perform the service. I know you said it had been over a year but it is a fine line when you start swapping out those type things. Just one question, ar they the sensors that were on your factory wheels? I know some aftermarket ones you have to purchase new sensors before they work correctly.

My understanding u have to get new stems when replacing them. But yea there the ones from the original rims. They just swapped them over. Worked like a champ til now. I hit hit maureen at rodgers chevorlet cuz supposedly they got great deals on parts. Plus since i know its not my tire i can research anybody that knows how to put those on

OK, I was just wondering. My Asantis are being built now and I planned on running 255/30/24 on the front, was just curious if there was any rubbing issue or not.
