Default tire pressure reading.

Hi everybody,
does any body have info on how the spare tire pressure reading on the imm comes on?

all the other 4 tires are reading , i done a reset (on and off read), after driving at 100k for 5 minutes, all 4 tires show pressure and temperature, but the spare does not show. may be i need to drive longer ????
any help would be appreciated.

thanks

Try driving it 20 minutes after storing it, the spare is always the last to adapt, and make sure the pressure in the spare is correct. If it doesn't adapt it might have a dead sensor battery.

The battery for the tire sensor? Nope, those are enclosed. They whole sensor has to be replaced. They aren't cheap either, i think they are about $200 a sensor.
