Default tpms sensor issues.

So When I got my new rims and tires about a month ago I had my tpms sensors transfered over so I wouldnt have that stupid light illuminated. All was good for about a week and then the light lit up. It was on for a few hours and then turned off so I was just like wherever. And then a week later the light turned on and has been on ever since. When I turn the truck on the light flashes and then just stays on. I went to the tire shop I got my set up from and they checked all my tire pressures in all four tires and in the spare and the light didnt turn off. So I called the ford dealer today like my shop suggested I do and they want $110 just to look at it. Thats insane. And I noticed a few days ago that theres a wierd rattling sound anf was wondering If my tpms sensor may have broke and could be rattling in my tire? Is that possible? I have no idea what they like. The dealer said that the shop could have broke them or the calibration could be off. I hate thay light but that rattling is getting me worried. What should I do? Is it worth going to the dealer our should I call my shop again? Arg I hate stealerships

I would take it back to the tire dealer, have the tire removed and make sure the sensor is not rolling around inside the tire becouse it will ruin the tire, so then you will have to replace the new tire.

Possible they did break off.

Also when they install them again from what I have read they have to recalibrate them.

Yeah It sound like somethings rattling in it. Im going to call ford again tommorow and probably go in. I dont think its the calibration cause it was fine for about two weeks. I really just dont want to pay ford over a hundred dollers just to scan it. Ugh.

Took It to ford. They checked and my back left sensor came off. Its costing me almost 400$ to have them check and replace that fucking sensor. Damn it. At least my tire isn't going to get all thrashed up I guess. Damn it.
