    Most of the early Tire pressue systems did not actually monitor the tire pressure...they used the speed sensors for the anti-skid system by montitoring the speed signals from wheels. It may have a failing speed sensor or the replacement tires could be a different circumfrence. Check the tire sizes to make sure they are the same as well as the replacement wheels.
