    after having two flats, I got new tires. Since this time the the low tire light randomly flashes then will stay on for an hr or days. I have checked them many times, pressure is fine, would it be safe to assume I have a sensor going/gone out?

    also if you think they are bad, does it matter the brand or what ever discount tire puts in?

    If your pressure is good then yes your sensors are going out.

    Stupid things cost hundreds of dollars to fix. I tossed mine a long time ago. A quick walk around the car and you'll see if you have a low tire. This is how to remove the light from the dash. Going to order the pieces one of these days. Already got them all bookmarked

    they generally last 5-10 years, so yes you are about time being a 2014 truck. I would suggest that you stick with OEM, aftermarket unit dont always play nice and can have sync issues. Or you can roll the dice and see if that DT installs will work for you.

    I will pay a little extra to not mess with it. That light absolutely drives me crazy!
