Well most tire shops are only filling the tire to about 32 psi due to new policies but most car size tires need 35psi. the sensor is set to go off at about 30-31 psi so do yourself a favor and put 35psi in the tires like it says on the tire side wall and it will stop telling you to.

Cool weather will lower the tire pressure.

Check your tire pressure. I run all mine at 36 psi and have no issues. In my opinion the TPMS is one of the greatest things they ever put on a vehicle. No more ruined tires from running them low on air.

Believe it or not, since the TPMS system is a requirement now, it's illegal to disable it. HTH. -Jim
