C5 Corvette tire pressure guage. 1999 model

The front right tire is not showing any reading on the display and I am getting a message saying to check the tire monitoring system. Does anyone know how to do that? Thanks

Does that vehicle have tire pressure sensors inside the wheel. If so I'd suspect that it's battery has died. The batteries are not replaceable so you replace the sensor which is usually part of the valve stem assembly which of course requires at least breaking the bead or dismounting the tire from the rim.

If you really don't want to buy a new sensor there are tutorials online how to replace the battery.

You could swap that rim with the one on the other side and see if the diagnostic check changes.
