    The low tire presure sensor light is blinking on my 2007 Tundra? I checked the presure and all 5 tires are good.
    The owners manuel only says to take to the dealer.

    Alot of them
    Most likely the batteries in the sensors. They average around 10 years of life.

    yeah, I agree to the previous post on the batteries in the TPMS. If you do end up needing new ones, I got Discount Tires to price match the Amazon ones for $20 each. However, that is usually when I got a new set of wheels and tires with them, but it's worth a try to ask.

    1 or more of your TPMS sensors are bad. You can go to any tire shop and they’ll replace the sensor(s) that are bad. Probably $75-$100 each out the door. Or if you’re due for new tires soon you can just put black tape over that light and replace the sensors at that time.

    I just bought these for my 07 a couple of weeks ago. They’re made by TRW, the OEM maker of our tpms sensors. If you look up OEM Toyota sensors, TRW is printed on them. $39 each and Sam’s club was able to install and program them. Fwiw, I had bought Denso Tpms sensors for my 06 Prius, and neither Sam’s nor a local tire shop could program them. The Dealer ended up having to do it, and even then it was tricky for them. Knowing this, I asked for recommendations on which sensors to buy for my Tundra. They said they’ve always been able to program OEM with no issues, other aftermarket brands are hit or miss for some reason.

    I joined to see what is possible
    costco is/was $65 each tpms installed. cheapest i found calling around. I still had the flash after i replaced all my tpms on the tires.

    theres also a tpms signal sender under your headliner part is 89760-0c010 or 89760-0c020. They are super expensive but turns out you can get one from 2011-2015 sienna. 89760-08020 you just swap out the electronics in the box with your factory box and reinstall it. takes two torx screws to open it up. super easy and found one on ebay for $30 shipped.

    If one sensor is going bad, odds are the others aren’t far behind. A good strategy is to replace them all at once whenever you replace your tires, especially if you live in a cold climate. Of course that rule of thumb depends on how many miles you put on each year...;)
