My guess is that one of your sensors has a dead battery. How old are they? I think typical lifespan on those is 5-7 years, but don't quote me on that.

Okay, I finally got back up to Costco. I had to stop by there to buy a battery for my other car. I asked them about my TPMS issue and they told me to bring it around to the shop. The mechanic brought out the scanner, scanned all 5 tires to get the ID's, then hooked it up to the OBD2 port and wrote the numbers to memory. Light went off immediately. Not sure what the problem was the first time. Perhaps the sensors were still in sleep mode or something on the first attempt, because I know they had tried this originally. Anyway, wanted to report back that the light is now OFF!

On my 08 the light is on and my spare is busted so no air. I don't plan on repairing the spare as of yet. Is there anyway I can tell the system to bypass the spare and just measure the remaining 4 tires?
Can I remove it from the car and put it in the house so it's out of the range? Would that work?

I doubt it. I think the computer is looking for all 5 ID's. When they (Costco) tried to program mine with just the four, it made him stop and go back to scan the ID for the spare.

How do you check the TPMS sensors to see which one is bad? I've tried resetting the TPMS under the dash and checked the switch under the glove compartment and disconnect/reconnect my battery and checked tire pressure on all five tires and TPMS light still stays on. Any other ideas as to what my problem might be?
