What year Suburban?

Does it tell you what the tire pressure is on the dash?

Have you checked the owners manual to see if there is a reset procedure yet (not sure what the trucks require for resetting the system)

If its just a generic light and no individual tire pressure readings than there is a possibility that a sensor is reading incorrectly. The only way to find out is with a TPMS tool.

Coincidentally I just Purchased the OTC model last week. Its pretty slick. I can walk around the vehicle and get (if equipped) the sensor ID, battery condition, tire pressure and tire temp.

the sensor is bad. i recently had one replaced, when the sensor is bad or if you put a regular valve stem in there it reads low pressure all the time. new sensor was 65$

Never rule it out though, but I also would think a 2005 Burb would not have a ducer in the spare. I am not a Chevy guy though. This is about the time things where changing. I know at least 06 on up Chryslers had them in the spare and maybe 05.

$550 for the kit. It is not vehicle specific. Its made to cover most if not all tpms systems. You probably wouldn't see me with a suburban in the driveway!!
