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!!

    • i think you have to put it over the limb and shimmy to the trunk by looping it through itself with  the help of the pole. but your right scoot I am confused too. I normally attch my to the trunk.
    • If the economy heats up, it gets down to a choice between rampant inflation or high interest rates.  The solution for the inflation of the 1970s  was to jack interest rates up into the teens.     What would interest payments be on $20+ trillion at 8 or 10 percent?  Or 12 or 14 percent?          
    • Which will lead to hyperinflation.   What will that look like? Well, we can try to print money like Del suggests but the evidence is that printing more money can actually make more problems.   http://www.foxnews.com/world/2017/01/18/hyperinflation-renders-venezuela-nation-broke-millionaires.html    
    • Since Bulleit was mentioned so much, I thought I'd check for it tonight when I went to get my standards.  With all the positive reviews I went to scanning the top shelf right away.  I didn't find it till I got a little lower.  I can say I was a little surprised to see it priced at $24.   What is it that everyone likes about it?  I'm curious now.  I wasn't curious enough to add it to the tab though.   By the way, Johnnie Walker Platinum and Blue Label took top honors in the price category at $99 and $209 per bottle respectively.
    • Debt to GDP at the current levels is not much of a problem if you assume interest rates will remain low and static, but there is no reason to believe they will, considering they are presently considerably lower than average historical levels.   You fail to account for any rise in interest rates in your calculations, and that is the primary reason 100 percent debt to GDP is not prudent financial policy.    
    • T   Me too.  They get the papers all soggy and hard to light.
