The tire pressure monitoring system warning light wont go out. This light came on and flashed and then went off. We had the dealer check it, but they said that this was normal. It came on again a month later, but went off. It was checked by dealer again. A few days later it came back on and stayed on. The dealer keeps saying its a quirk in the system for the car, but this sounds like bs. It may be a failed sensor but it needs to be replace or corrected. This is a major safety issue because lack of adequate pressure in all four tires can cause an accident, especially when the system no longer tells you which tire is the issue.

The contact owns a 2009 Chevrolet Traverse. The contact stated that the vehicle only came equipped with Bridgestone dueler H/T 684 tires, line size 255/55/20. The contact mentioned that he was concerned for his safety because the vehicle would hydro plane and would not get any traction when driving on snow. The vehicle was taken to dealer who stated that the only tire available for replacement was a tire of the same brand and size. The dealer also advised that installing tires of a different size would void the warranty. The manufacturer was made aware of the failure who did not offer any assistance.
