The King, His Harem & Holiday Spirit

Michael’s been working on getting all of the sensors for our Tire Pressure Monitor System (TPMS) reprogrammed since he received a new display module from TST a few weeks ago.  The original display had a button that stopped working and the company had no problem replacing it.  Now he’s found that one of the sensors … Continue reading »
