Safety issue? "SVC TIRE MONITOR" alert
My 2008 Malibu is running well but a new alert that appeared this morning. Let's back up - 12/29 I bought 4 new tires and installation from Costco - yay me. I have been putting this off for 6+ months. 1/25 (today) driving to work in a second day of early morning rain, >ping< an alert appeared on my dash "SVC TIRE MONITOR". Not a traction alert which would be because of a slick road or pool of water, but an alert about tire pressure. Can it be I have run over a sharp object and I'm starting to get a flat? I am not in the mood to hand over $100 to my dealer just to turn off the alert. If Costco messed up a sensor, is 26 days the right delayed reaction time for an alert?!
