Default New set of tires = faulty tire pressure sensor?

Got a new full set of tires (after 18000), same ones that I had stock (Continental 19s). Now my tire pressure warning sensor is constantly on.

Pressures are identical all the way around (~40PSI), and I've reset the sensor numerous times (holding down until light goes out). A few miles later, it just comes back on.

What's the deal? Has anyone else experienced this? (Getting kinda tired of this cheap-o flaky rotation-measurement sensor.)

Thanks in advance

Doesn't sound like you are performing the reset properly.

I believe you want to start with TPS light off, and then turn off the engine. turn the key to position 2. Press and hold the TPS button until it lights up (yellow). Then start the car, the light will go out after a couple of seconds.

The steps are detailed in the manual as well.

Turn your ignition to pos 2 with the engine off. Hold the tire monitor button down until the light comes on. Let off of the button and wait until the light goes back off.
