Ram 1500

  • miles
Cpsc#I1270494A. 2009 Dodge Ram 1500. Consumer stated as he was driving, the tire pressure sensor light came on, and within a few seconds his front driver side tire was completely flat. The consumer stated after removing the tire, he took it to a repair shop and was told it was common with his make/model. Apparently, the nut on the outside of the rim, that secured the valve stem and sensor to the wheel was prone to corrosion. When it was corroded enough, the valve stem loosened into the tire allowing all of the air to escape, allowing the tire to go flat.
