This issue was already solved but I would have been interested about some more info from the owner, Vac.
Was this a new car from the shop with tyres from the factory or did it perhaps have winter tyres with new sensors installed?
My point is that sensors from parts are told to come in test-mode (after production). Test mode can be turned off with a special tester (that nobody probably has, Streetglover perhaps knows?) or by driving the car at least 5 minutes at a speed higher than 25 km/h. If the car speed drops for a moment below this speed, the 5 minute time restarts! Once the car has been driven 5 minutes keeping the speed constantly above 25 km/h, the sensors recover normal operation.
If it does not apply for Vic, perhaps it is good to know for other owners.
