I have a new 507 system and noticed one of the sensors reads about 3 psi lower than the others. Is this common?


No, but have you physically checked the air pressure with an air gauge to see what it is. It just may be 3 psi lower then the rest . You need to check all four to see if they all match ,to verify if it's the sensor or just air pressure difference, if you haven't already .


Certainly, that was the first thing I did! All four tires were inflated to 80 psi and checked with same digital gauge. The variation in inflation pressure continues as psi increases with road travel.


Mine differ a little as they heat up traveling, but when cold early morning no sun on them they all read equal within a psi. But no not 3 psi. Now that you know it’s probably okay to allow for that 3 psi. Or check about warranty, possibly get a new sensor.

My system has 1 sensor that reads 2 to 3 psi lower. I verified with an independent gauge and now I just factor in the difference.
