The tire pressure sensor (the left front sensor, also known as green #44 or part number 1016 1856) is not available new or used anywhere in the country. Referring to page 6-47 of the manual, the following warning appears: When the low/flat tire warning light is on your vehicle's handling capabilities will be reduced during severe maneuvers. If you drive too fast, you could lose control of your vehicle. You or others could be injured. Don't drive over 55 mph (90 km/H) when the low/flat tire warning light is on. Drive cautiously and check your tire pressure as soon as you can." Now, noting the recent headlines about Firestone tire failures and the resulting tragic consequences, it would seem highly appropriate for Chevrolet to immediately address the fact that this part is discontinued and no longer available. Basically, all we (my wife joy rende, who actually owns the car, and I) are looking for is for Chevy to start manurafturing the part again.

problem #3

Corvette

Car came factory equipped with emt (run-flat) tires. Manufacturer has discontinued part number 10161856 "tire sensor" needed to indicate if a tire loses pressure. As there is no outward indication of a loss of pressure in a tire, loss of pressure will eventually result in catastrophic tire failure which may result in a loss of vehicle control. Chevrolet customer care has confirmed the part has been discontinued and that there are currently no plans for a replacement part.
