    The yellow "low tire pressure" light illuminates when any of the tire pressures are low, (including the spare wheel). Look for the decal on your truck that has the recommended tire pressures for your tires. Inflate the tires to the correct pressures don't forget to check the spare tire pressure. After driving the truck for a few minutes the light should go out , if the tire pressures are correct and the tire pressure monitoring system is functioning correctly. Each wheel has its own sensor with its own battery, the sensors can fail, but to program a new sensor after installation requires a scan tool.

    Have you checked the spare tire. That was my issue for months and didnt think to check its pressure.

    Ensure stems are in good shape as well. Kauffman Tire changed my tires and smashed my tire pressure gauge and tried to blame it on me. They move quickly removing tires on a turn-table and often destroy the gauges which are no bigger than a Bic lighter and attached to the valve stems. Look for damage to each.
