TPMS problems

Hi everyone,
I am a new member of te forum, i am proud to be here. I hope you can help me

i am having problems with the TPMS of my 2002 mcs r53.
i have checked tyre pressure and reseted the system, then i drive a few kilometers and the light turns on.

It occurs faster in a hot day (about whitin 2 kilometers), in a cold day i can drive 40 kilometeres without the problem.
I dont know if there is any temperature sensor in the system that may be faulty.

I know this version of TPMS uses the abs sensors to work, there is not any abs fault in the car so my dubt is if any abs sensor may be faulty.

Do you have any expiriences with this problem?

You have a steering sensor on steering column under dash, a slide sensor under handbrake, and electronic box on ABS system. Will need to code to see which is affected. I let dealer code and I replaced electronics on ABS, have replaced steering sensor twice due to autocross competition (make sure dealer matches to VIN), Most expensive is the sensor under handbrake, all will need reset.
