IS MY TIRE SENSOR FAULTY?

2011 Buick La Crosse • 15,000 miles

My tire sensor appears faulty in my 2011 Buick Lacrose. Information panel says tire is low, 26 lbs, but after inflating to 38 lbs and checking with tire gauge, information panel continues to indicate that that tire is still low. Do sensors go bad this easily?

Drive it for about 50 miles and see if it updates itself. If not, then yes, you may have a bad sensor if you drove on a flat tire.
