I'm getting a message that states the TPMS is inactive on the dash and the red tire light comes on. This happened a couple of times and then there was one instance when the red tire light was off but going through the vehicle menu, the screen with the tire pressuresis gone. And you could not select tires as an option off the menu page. This morning I get in and the error light returned. I've had a sensor die and it's just a bad pressure reading, but I've never had the screen go away where I couldn't even look it up.

I need to hook up the Durametric, but was curious if anyone had this symptom before.

I get that error with my winter wheels which have pre 08 sensors (wrong frequency) sounds like a bad sensor to me

Oddly enough this morning it worked fine on my initial trip. After I stopped and got back in, the message came back on again but at least this time the screen on the dash menu came up, even if it was reading all -- for the pressure values.

Getting a suspension workshop on the screen when it's running the starter now. Put the scangauge on it and the voltage is about 11.5 volts with the key on, engine off and drops down to about 8.5v when the starter is turning over. Picks up to 13.6v when running. Thinking battery now since I've owned it for about 4 years now, bought CPO, and it's on the same battery as when I bought it.

Sounds like a good idea, these do weird things when the battery starts to go

The best way to test a battery's condition is to run a load test, some parts stores now will even do this for free in expectation of selling you a battery. The test requires a special testing tool, but only takes about 15 seconds to run and is a "go/no go" style test so there is no need for interpretation of the results.

Well drug it out until now and after replacing the battery all is good. Today I actually got a check engine light and found a couple of other faults that I knew weren't legitimate. Cleared with the Durametric, then installed the battery. One surprise was the fact I had to re-calibrate the steering angle sensor (778 message) after the install and found that on another thread. Went with an Autozone Gold battery in case anyone was wondering. It is a little shorter than the stock battery so I used some foam packing laying around to make up the 1.5" or so in the battery case. The main holder bracket works just fine.

Thanks for the update. Glad it worked out and good battery tip as well.

I should add the power windows for the one-touch "up" function also has to be reset, which is in the owner's manual. But one check engine light was legitimate, P0492. As it turns out the secondary air injection pump impeller came apart. I posted an update on another thread for that carnage. But all the other codes and messages I was having were related to the battery so I feel that's still a great indicator that the battery needs to be replaced.

      Hey folks,  I just bought a 2011 Cayenne S to replace my 2006.  Wow what a difference!  Anyways, the TPMS has 2 dead sensors.  What replacements works?  I can't seem to get a straight answer... looking for cost effective option.  What have you actually bought and used that actually works?  Model names, numbers etc... are appreciated
       
      Thanks.

      I purchased an '04 CTT about a year ago and have been slowly bringing the technology up to date (rear view camera, up-to-date stereo)...
       
      I am interested in adding TPMS, and there's one that is compatible with my Apple Carplay stereo:

      Was wondering if anyone else had success using something different.  There are plenty on eBay that use bluetooth and a simple Car-Lighter plug-in monitor (which would work for me as well):

      hi everyone, im being haunted with TPMS now. first problem is left side appear req??? if u check in tyre pressure, meter keep pop out TPC inactive, system learning. so below is what i have done;
       
      -check battery life, FR 0 month. i changed FR wheel sensor
      -after changed the sensor, i run about 5km (TPC inactive still pop out)
      -i diagnosed again n check battery life, RR 0 month then.. ****!
      -i dont believe the scanner, so i do system adaptation
      -problem still same, i then swap rear tyre.
      -scanner still show RR 0 month, i then swap TPMS rear antena
      -problem still same..now i dont know what to do.
       
      im wondering how TPMS get wheel electronic ID? i noticed 1 thing, first time i check the ID *******217 at FL, then today 217 at RL! anyone get the clue? i have running the car more than 20km but it still learning.

      I have an '08 Boxster S with 19" wheels.  I check my tire pressure with a gage every copule of weeks.  I have noticed that the tire pressure on the gage is always higher than what the TPMS reads.  I was concerned about this so I looked it up in the manual.  The manual points out that the recommended pressures are for cold tires at 68F and that tire pressure changes with temperature.  It then goes on to say that the TPMS takes into account the relationship between temperature and pressure.
       
      So does the TPMS tell you what the pressure in the tires would be if the temperature were 68F?  When it's 98F outside I don't care what the pressure would be if it were 68F, I care what the pressure is now.  I fill my rear tires to the recommended 36psi based on todays conditions.  Am I looking at this wrong?
