    I have a 2015 Peugeot Boxer cab on my MH which has tyre pressure monitors.

    I have not altered the pressures since I got the van a few months ago but every now and again the tyre pressure warning light comes on on the dash.

    It came on part way to our destination this weekend but all pressures were fine and when we came home it didn't come back on?

    Anyone else have similar issues?

    As the wheels go round temperature increases and so does tyre pressure. If your monitor has an upper/lower temperature setting then the pressure of the tyre could be above the upper threshold and hence the alarm.

    Which is the very reason pressures should be checked when COLD.

    Odd, but this morning it was still below zero when I took the moho back to storage. Had only gone a few yards when my TPS monitor went off, showing pressures (yes it happened four times!) well below normal but still within the alarm limits. Pressing the button showed temps at or just above freezing. Just in case got out and checked but all looked okay so carried on. Within a couple of miles the indicated pressures returned to normal.

    Do low temperatures affect the sensors I wonder?
