I have a 2012 QP S. My rear drivers side tire showed a bad reading on the tpms sensor. So I had it replaced with a Huf compatible unit. All other tires showed the pressure fine. Now I cannot get rid of the tpms warning on the dash. I have done the recalibration. went to the menu screen, held the plus button till it said recalibrating, drove the car and nothing. Is there some magic trick I'm missing. Do I need to program the sensor? the instructions that came with the sensor said to do exactly what I have done. I now get no readings on any tire. This is a major pain in the A**. Any help would be apprcted. I have 22mm spacers on the front and 25mm on the rear could that be causing a issue? Have had them for a while with no problems till now so Im doubting its that. Best, Joe

What you describe happens when more than one sensor isn't working. When the battery dies on one the others are usually close behind. Thats why a lot of places only replaces them in sets. So replace the other three and you should be good.

The other common issue is a failed tpms module... But almost the exact same thing happened to my 2011 last year so looks like your right on schedule for weak/dead batteries with your 2012. (if the sensors are original)

Also be sure that all the tire pressures are very close to whats recommended on the sticker on your driver door tag or manual. If the values are off too far, the system will not calibrate.

We had a customer recently that wanted to run a different psi than the factory recommendation... he was trying to calibrate it with the wrong pressures, we simply filled the tires to 32psi and it calibrated perfectly. Hope that helps.
