Just so everyone knows... On my 09 R/T the sensor would go off if the tire got to 26PSI or lower and it would shut off at 27 or higher. Well now on my 2012 R/T if it drops to 26 or if you get going really fast around 26/30 PSI it will go off and it won't reset until it goes back up to 36PSI. I was adding pounds this morning and as soon as the PSI got to 36 the sensors went back to safe mode. So all sensors are fine

MODS so far
Borla exhaust, HHP High Flow cats, K&N Airraid intake system

More MODS to come

That is the same way my 09 SRT sensors react. But I only know by testing at low pressure to see if it worked. I run 36-37 PSI normally.

2015 Hellcat incoming - sometime - maybe
2009 Challenger SRT8 - staying right here until the Hellcat is delivered.

I try to run around that PSI too but you know sometimes you get busy and at first I was trying to maintain only nitrogen in my wheels and it's much more difficult to top your tires on with nitrogen than air.

Mine recently went on due to the cold weather and has not turned off since but only shows the FL is low and it has the same psi as the FR.

Yeah that sounds like what I was talking about too the sensors I think are only good for viewing if a flat is coming I try not to pay attention too much some of the warnings are a little too safe for me I do miss how simple car design used to be

I don't know for sure but maybe the speed rating for your tires and the TMPS are relative- you probably already checked this but maybe thats the issue? Not sure what you have on there and not real sure it's even relative- just a thought
