So my TPMS flashes for about 30 seconds when I accelerate quickly. I've never seen this before. The tire pressures are all good.

Can anyone explain what it means?

Warp speed? Tires traveling faster than the signal from the sensors.

That's what I was thinking LOL! I suspect it means a sensor is going bad but don't know for sure.

Try some conservative driving for a bit. If it flashes for a bit every 5/10 minutes then one of your sensors is not reporting.
if u are in cold cold weater, one of the sensors may have ice on it.(cant remember where i read this from)

Is there any way to find out which sensor? It continues to flash now regardless of my driving habits.

Flashing could mean a malfunctioning sensor....they usually are either On or Off...I've never had mine flash before.

Yes, head to your local shop and they will let you know which sensor is not reporting.

Mine is doing the same thing. I'm assuming yours is a 2006. The battery inside the sensor went dead.
Yep, early 2006. Over on the "other" forum they said a garage can scan the sensors and tell you which one is bad.

UPDATE:

Had them scanned, the driver's side front sensor is bad.

At least you know what it is. Hopefully fixed soon and that annoying light goes off on the dash.
