When I purchased my 2010 Lotus Evora used from a Lotus dealer, they had just put new tires on the car. However, they did not replace a TPMS sensor in the right rear that was reading 00psi. The Left rear read 37psi, and both fronts read 31psi. Of course, the orange low pressure light in the center was also illuminated.

As the car came from a different time zone, the clock was wrong. I started trying to fix the clock by pushing end of the turn indicator stick without success. Being a new Lotus owner, and realizing that I had no idea how to fix the clock, I read through the manual. Needless to say, I managed to set the clock.

However, I noticed that I somehow changed around the pressure locations for all the tires.
They used to read:
LF=31psi
LR-37psi
RR=00psi
RF=31psi

Now they read:
LF=00psi
LR=31psi
RR=37psi
RF=31psi

The manual does not address how to fix this. I'm not even sure how I did it. I tried searching old forums threads, but could not find any that specifically addressed this issue. Maybe I am the first person stupid enough to have done this.

Any ideas?

I do not think you changed the pressure locations for the tires as they are not user programmable...

"If a fault is indicated after wheel or tyre replacement, it is likely that a sensor has been incorrectly fitted or damaged. If a tyre valve/sensor
is renewed, or is moved to a different wheel position, the TPMS will automatically identify the new configuration
by interpreting signal strength as distance from sensor to receiver
."

Thanks for the reply. It sure seemed like I did something, as it read correctly for over a week and about 1000 miles, and didn't switch until after I started messing around trying to change the clock. I like your response because it lets me off the hook. :)

I'll have the dealer check the sensors when I take it in for service.
