If you did the tire pressure at 38 when they were warm, they could be up to 4 pounds lower when cold. Check before driving on a cold morning.

We must find a way to bypass that tire pressure warning. I have never had to have a car tell me when my tire is a pound off. So don't give me a dangerously distracting flashing yellow light in my face while I am half way through a 500 mile drive along an interstate at night with no air pressure pumps in sight. I paid a lot for this car and I don't want this feature so why should I have to keep it?

Can the dealer do this or is he not allowed to do it?

You'd have to find someone that can do either dyno tunes or someone that can tune Suzuki's. Try contacting Road///Race. They might be able to point you in the right direction.

I think I can disambiguate a little bit, as I had a flat tire on freeway just this morning.

When the tire pressure is low, the system advises just that: low tire pressure. According to my experiments that happens when the pressure falls below ~32 PSI.

Now, the “Service TPMS” alert comes up when there is actually something wrong with the system, such as when the system can't get the signal from one of the sensors. When I replaced the flat with the temporary spare, and placed the disabled tire in the trunk, where it was not spinning, my low tire pressure warning got replaced with the service TPMS warning after a few miles of driving on the spare.

Once the flat tire was patched up and put back on, the system got green (or should I say gray) just after a couple of minutes of driving.

I have read on other forums that people are putting all four sensors inside a wheelbarrow tire. Then pumping the wheelbarrow tire & sensors up to 40 lbs and throwing into the trunk. Regular stems on winter & summer rims!
