sensor light keeps coming on

my b-i-l has a 96 vette. has all the bells and whistles. one of which is a sensor light that comes on when the tire pressure is low. doesnt matter which tire. you then are supposed to inflate ALL tires and the light should go out in about 10 minutes or so according to the manual. ya right. this light does not correct itself EVEN IF the pressure is correct on all four. and what really gets him mad is this light is really bright.he doesnt even need a map light. he took it to the local badwrench dealer and their supposed corvette wizard didnt know what could be wrong. he checked it over and thought maybe install a new sensor. EACH fricken tire has a sensor. a new sensor is 200 bucks a pop. needless to say my b-i-l isnt to happy. i told my b-i-l that if he doesnt need the idiot light to tell him the pressure is low to just disconnect the damn thing. if he does need the idiot light, then i feel sorry for my sister. anyways, what do all you gurus out there think? if you have an idea of what might be wrong, lets hear it. if you agree with me, lets hear that also. thank you

tire pressure lite

check the wiring for the sensors,you might have a bad wire or a sensor positive going to ground.i had a similar problem with a abs lite on a truck.

G.M. certified tech. here to help. For one the sensors are wireless so there is no possibility of a short. Two, if you need it I can give you directions to "retrain" the sensors. If a battery in one sensor is low it will make the light stay on because the passenger door module is not receiving a signal from the sensor with the low battery. I have full access to GM's website. From experience I would say you need a sensor, you will just need to find which sensor has gone low on batt. power. Email me at warfme@hotmail.com if you need to. Corvettes can be very frustrating to even experienced techs such as myself. But darn if they are not soo fun to drive. Hope this helps.
