Hello all,
A quick question; on my 2016 encore sport my low tire pressure warning light just came on, in fact the diagram of the car telling me it was the front passenger side tire at 28psi. I stopped at my local gas station and went to fill it with 35psi only to find out it was already at 35. I checked the other tires and found them all good. Am I to believe I have a bad tpms sensor? Any help be greatly appreciated

How did you determine you had 35 PSI in all the tires?
Do you own a digital or analog tire pressure gauge?
I would not rely on the accuracy of a gas station air pump.
Did you look in your owners manual for the TPMS reset?
The sensors have batteries in them and thus can fail over time.
The TPMS reset Is typically done when tires are rotated or snow tires are mounted or removed.

Very simple to reset tpms If you have this tool. This one works for GM and Ford. I got mine from ebay. You can get them cheaper from Ali Express but takes longer to get here.




First turn key to ignition "ON" and bring down driver's side window.

Scroll to yes and press the set button again. This will put you in TPMS relearn mode. With the tool go to the front driver's side ( front marker light will be on ) and press start, hold tool close to valve until horn sounds once,

Then the right front marker light will come on indicating you have to do that wheel next ending with driver's side rear wheel sounding the horn 3 times indicating all 4 TPMS have successfully reprogrammed.

Front left TPMS in my '16 is reading faulty, confirmed by 2 different digital pressure gauges. It needs tires anyway so I'll probably replace all 4.
Confirmed pressure is 35PSI, reading is anywhere from about 28 - 31 PSI depending on temperature.
