I just did a test drive and looked under the hood so far and was going to see which it is and then got the call that they were going to sell it. At that time, I did not know that they were leaving it here and myself and my friend, her father, would be selling it and keeping the proceeds because he gave her the 2022 Bronco Sport. I will have it back here before the weekend and do a thorough inspection so we can see what we are going to do to it to prep for the sale.Awd or?
The 09 K1500 4x4 Silverado crew cab, that belonged to the guy across the street that passed away, was inspected by me and I started today and am almost done with the new spark plugs, plug wires, MAF cleaning, throttle body cleaning, new belts and I finally get to use my stretch belt tool for the a/c belt, oil and filter change and add a quart of ATF to bring to full. Found wobbly pulleys on the belt tensioner and idler and are replacing those as well. Then tomorrow I am going to di in and see what the owner put tape over the master switch window switches for. No matter which way I flip the window lock, no windows work. Gonna look for a relay problem or maybe an umbilical cord problem between the door and the body. The key fob only unlocks two of the doors as well. That could get interesting.
Also, the TPMS light flashes and then stays on solid while staring and driving. The 20" tires were at 32 psi and one was at 26 psi. Filled all 4 tires to 35 psi and I looked and looked at the owners manual and it never says how to clear that light. I think they want me to go pay a stealership to reset or see a tire store to reset, because there is no mention as to what to do if have 1 low tire and then fix that one tire. Any help is appreciated.
Through all the reading, I got the "sense" that it should reset it self and turn out the light by driving it and maybe even going thru some ignition cycles. I drove it thru the neighborhood and on the highway and stopped and cycled the ignition about 6 times during all the driving and it made no difference.There shouldn't be any "resetting" necessary. If the light is on due to a low tire, and you inflate the tires properly, the light should go off. Did the DIC display the current tire pressures after you inflated them evenly? You might have to take it around the block for it to wake up the sensors as they go to sleep after inactivity.
The light blinking is what piques my interest. Also, the module for the TPMS is tied in with the door lock module, if not built together. IIRC, it might be the whole window and lock switch assembly with the TPMS part built-in. If so, this might be where the symptoms share a common point.
