I'm getting a Service Tire Monitor System error. I haven't serviced the brakes in months and don't know why it showed up. The truck has 63,000 miles.
Does anyone know what it means?
Does anyone know how to re-set it?

Read your owners manual.

It will tell you the "sequence of events" for resetting the Tire Pressure Monitoring system.

This has nothing to do with the brakes, unless you also rotated the tires w/o resetting the tire pressure system...

You can mix the tires up and it won't care, but it will tell you the wrong tire is low.

An error is probably a bad sensor. You reset the system by pushing the second button down on the info button, when you get to it, push the "check" button, and/or as said, it's in your manual.

Go through the tires and see if one is'nt reading a pressure. If you reset, and it does'nt clear, ...sensor. I think they are about $40.

Do you have the "info system" If not, you'll need to go to the dealer or good tire store.

Just as mysteriously as the error showed up, it's gone away.
Thanks for the feedback. I hope I don't have to do any of the things suggested.

Well, the problem came back. This time the computer said there was no reading from the left rear. So I took the tire off. Looked for a sensor and found nothing. Then I took the brake drum off. Still no sensor.
Put things back together. Adjusted the air pressure in all tires and haven't had a problem since.
Is there really a sensor on the rear tires or does the computer just make something up to screw w/ our heads? If there is a sensor, where is it?

The sensor is inside the rim/tire at the valve stem. The tire has to be dis-mounted to get to it.

What Kenney said.

Here's a generic pic of a tire/rim that has TPMS.

Sorry, I can't see the pic.
If the sensor is in the valve stem, where's the pickup from the computer? I don't see any wires inside the wheel well or on the axle.
