My TPMS light officially came on last winter after a deep freeze. At every start up, it flashes for about 10secs and then stays on continuously.
I have a feeling this is a problem with the system rather than a low tire (as I just had new Firestone Destination A/T's put on over this weekend).
Unfortunately, the people at Firestone said the problem was 'reset' or fixed which it wasn't. It was also a very mild weekend here in Wisconsin, so I went ahead and plasti dipped my rims.
But now I'm wondering, if they have to change the sensors or batteries or deal anything WITH the TPMS, do they have to take the tire off of the rim and ruin my beautiful job??[/QUOTE]
Depends on where you go and what machine they use. They scuffed up/pulled up some of the edges on my brothers so he ended up just taking all of it off and planned on re-doing it. His lazy *** has yet to do it. IMO this is pretty much the only issue with plasti dipping your rims.

The blinking TPMS light means a fault somewhere, which could be a wheel sensor, one of the receiving units in the wheel wells or something else. Better plan is to have the system scanned to narrow down the problem before throwing parts at it.
