Q: Tire sensor bad or missing

asked by on

The display panel shows that I have a bad tire sensor or that it is missing.

The TPMS sensor in the tire may be bad. You will need to take it to a technician that has a TPMS scan tool to have it checked out. You may want to check the tire pressure in the tires. If they are low, the light will come on. A certified technician can come and scan for TMPS problems. They can also reset the TPMS light.
