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!!

    •   Well, like I said, I think it was fake news but it was still pretty darn good! I like a really tomatoey chili and this one was that.
    •   I like chili without beans but my wife likes them and this recipe called for beans so I went with it.   That's pretty close to what I just made but it looks darn good. I'll probably try this one next time!
    •   This has zero to do with the article I posted. I don't think you get it.   Another one that doesn't get it.
    •     So you're saying that statement isn't true?      
    •   Oh, I see now.   The Feds bowing out completely,  zero control, regulation and placing it in the hands of the citizens, effectively ending the war, will flip the script and it will correct itself.    Crime down, prisons emptied, addiction to new lows, family saved.   Stfu.   You have no idea or plans to swap in after decriminalizing. None. Nothing.        
    •     Do you have any evidence to back this statement up?   Because if you listen to Trump's rhetoric, the focus is clearly on illegal drugs coming across the border.  With a traditional militaristic approach.
    •     The double standard pertains more to whether you have the financial resources to go into treatment and avoid going to prison than to legal versus illegal.  If Rush didn't have the financial resources to hire a good lawyer, he would have gone to prison rather than to a treatment center - simple as that.  The federal government (via the taxpayers) funds prisons - they do not fund treatment centers.   Both are controlled substances, but the reality is the government doesn't do a very good job of controlling either one.  They are still dragging their feet on legalizing or even re-classifying marijuana, even though it is common knowledge their classification is a complete farce.   The legal opiate version is just as addicting, or possibly more addicting than the illegal version, and accounts for the largest percentage of drug overdose deaths today.   If there is a crackdown on prescription opioids, the data shows there will be an increase in illegal heroin use.  Florida is a prime example.   We know there are ways of treating addiction that do not involve prison sentences.     The War on Drugs going at it from the traditional/conventional federal perspective is a complete failure.   Those are the facts, but obviously none of that makes any difference to you, and you will continue to defend the status quo with no rational reason to do so.     Bobby nailed it when he said "syntax error on line 1"....
