Looking for any advice. I am having some difficulty getting my local dealership to address a TPMS light that sporadically (every 100 miles or so) flashes, stays on for a few minutes (at the most), and then goes away.
Actual tire pressure, weather, driving conditions, and time all seem to not have an impact. From research it sounds like it is likely a bad sensor or TPMS module. While not hindering my ability to drive the vehicle, the light has become a real annoyance and bummer to see pop up in the dash of my brand new car (3,000ish miles so far) every other drive.
- I have not had much luck with my local Subaru dealership that I bought the car from. It is difficult for them to diagnose as the light does not stay on for long and (of course my luck) I have not been able to show up with it on still as of yet (I live and work 1 hour away). In my two scheduled visits, they have twice now driven the car for about 20 miles, reset the system, and aired/adjusted up my tires. I am being told now that my only option is to leave the car at the dealership (loaner provided) and letting them drive the car until the light comes on so that they can read the code being thrown. I am not a fan at all of leaving my car overnight, having them drive it for potentially 100+ miles (last time was returned smelling horrible inside).
Any suggestions/thoughts on options? Guessing it would be unreasonable for them to start replacing parts without being able to read codes? I have contacted SOA and they told me to go to a different dealership, not the response I was hoping for, but might pursue.
