Tire Code Help

Postby Slack Tide » Thu Jan 23, 2014 6:24 am

2013 GMC tire code says "Left RR tire low fill"......too damn cold to check psi but all appear the same and normal....
Google says nothing...
What's Left RR mean???

RR should mean Right Rear. not sure why there is a left in front of RR.

But just get out and check the pressure in all the tires, chances are one is a few psi low, possibly because its cold.
NRA and DU member, are you? if not you should be!

Cant remember the exact numbers but for every 10 degree temperature drop tires lose a pound of air that they dont get back again. Go through and check em and if it comes back on then you probably have a nail or a bead leak.

RR = rear, FR = front. You need to air up your left rear tire. Might as well check them all while you're at it

Free tip, when you have them rotated make sure they reprogram the locations. If not, it'll show left rear but it'll mean front.

Thanks....first...how do you do that?
Second....I aired up but light still on....how do you get that to go out...the manual is horrendously unhelpful

It's possible the tpms is bad, happened in my wifes car. Usually they reset once the pressure is back up, but I don't know if all the sensors/systems work that way.

How much have you driven on it after you filled it up? Some take quite awhile to reset themselves

Do it the ole fashion way with a tire gauge and then drive it. sometimes you have to get it up to 45-50 mph before it all resets.
As far as reprogramming them it is confusing. You have to enter the training mode and then let air out of each tire. Just tell them to do it where they rotate them, or google it.

So freakin stupid.....
I went to pump and they were all off psi and low....got them all right and then the light went off....it's been so freakin cold....then today in the 40s....probably had something to do with it.

Thanks all
