I've been having some elctrical problems with the car. The dashboard keeps showing the check tire pressure light on as well as the truck unlocked warning. I have locked the trunk and had the tire pressure checked. It is fine. However these lights stay on for some reason. How can I fix this?
Hi there. Most of the time this is caused by a loose battery or ground connection. I usually start by checking the battery terminal connections for tightness and corrosion. I then check the ground connections for the same problems.
If any of those connections are loose or dirty, then this will occur. If the connections are good, I install a scan tool and check the programming in the modules. It may need to have a programming update. If the programming is also current, then the module is likely failing. If you are planning on having this fixed, consider YourMechanic, as a certified mechanic can come to your home or office to run these tests and diagnose the electrical problems that your car is experiencing.
