Problem Description and Possible Solution
The tire pressure monitoring control module is known to indicate a defective wheel pressure sensor, when it is really the control module itself that has failed. Careful diagnostic should be performed for this repair.

TPMS light on constantly. Screen constantly says to check all tire pressures. Tire pressures are fine, all senders are OK. Dealer diagnosed defective module, wants $700.00 to replace.
Low Tire Pressure warning on intermittently, then continuously. Verified pressure of tires as fine on multiple occasions. Indicative problem now for several months. Have not yet fixed/diagnosed for problem with sensor, or main unit.
TPMS light on. "Tyre Pressure System Monitoring Fault". Local foreign car shop said sensors were fine. Dealer said sensors were bad. Replaced all sensors. Light back on after 15 minutes. Apparently need bad module replaced. Dealer quoted $840. Already have $300 into diagnostics and sensors. Should be a Service Bulletin! Ugh.
This has been an intermittent problem that shows up after I have any work done on my front suspension or tires. The light had not been on for about a year. However, I just put my snow tires on and the light is illuminated once again.
