TPMS detected nail in tire

My TPMS this week has been acting very weird. Monday on the way to/from work, the TPMS light was flashing for about a minute or so after starting the jeep, then shut off. The next day and a half, the TPMS light was on again, but a steady on. Somehow yesterday after work, the TPMS came on at startup for its usual system check, then shut off. Today, the light came back after startup as a steady on. Tires are not lower than usual, but starting to think something is really messed up w/ the TPMS. Any ideas?

Cold weather at night can cause tire pressure to drop. It is also a good idea to keep your tires fully inflated.

good thing you thought of that, I always forget that there is a sensor in the spare.

With the colder weather approaching youll find that you need to add a few more pounds of air to each tire. Just make sure you check the tire pressure after the vehicle has been sitting for at least 3 hours.

As we near winter time, and we all know how some of us can't check tire pressures religiously 'outsite', an ideal method is to add about 2-3 psi above the 'cold pressure' on all tires. This way, as the temperature drops as we approach the bittery cold, the thinking-ahead idea will compensate and drop the psi down to its ideal levels. This is just a thought, but I find it handy since I can't always check it weekly.

update:

took the commander to the dealer to have the tpms checked out, turned out i unknowingly had a small nail lodged into the right front tire, causing a slow leak and the tpms light to turn on. they patched the area for $20. Also, somehow one of the techs cracked the tpms sensor for that tire/rim and gave me a new one under warranty. As of now, the tpms light is off. Hopefully that takes care of my tpms woes.
