Hmm. Either temp sender calibration is off a little bit or it's colder inside the car than it is outside the car. Remember when you are in Defrost or Defog modes on your Heating Ventilation Air Conditioning (HVAC) the Air Conditioning is turned on automatically to help remove water vapor from the air, and keep the Windows clear. This will cool the car's ...

The TPMS sensor in each wheel does not come with new tires, it a separate part. There are TPMS reseal kits that are available separately, see picture below. The TPMS sensor is to be resealed each time a new tire is installed. This is industry best practice. It is not always done. It appears this was not done when your tires were installed or the new seals ...
