Default Do recon test drive your car?

Out of curiosity.. Do recon test drive your car out? I have a bad tire pressure sensor that randomly throws an error... Just being cheap at the moment..

Thanks!

No they do not... But if your TPMS light or low tire pressure light is on, you will not pass recon, much less a safety check...

AFAIK, they don't actually drive your car. can you clear the codes with a code reader and then see if they come back (hopefully after your recon appt)?

Most code readers will not clear TPMS codes.

does the tpms light flash after you turn the engine on? if so then you have a problem with the sensor it self most likely the battery died in the sensor... shitty part is you gota replace the whole sensor...

When I start the car, the warning is not displayed.. Only when on the freeway, once in a while it displays bad tire pressure sensor. Read on forums, that there is a battery that transmit.. And it needs replacing...

Thanks!!!
