No air coming out of stem valve

Hi everyone,

I'm having a little issue with one of my valve stem. I'm wondering if the stem is just frozen cold or broken. I actually tried to put air in my tire today since i got a low pressure warning from my TPMS. It's been really cold here for the last 3 days around -25șC to -30șC. (which often give low pressure warning) Others stems seems to be fine but this particular one is not letting air in or out of the tire. Any input on what i should do beside getting back to my dealer. ( which i'm kinda shy to go right now since i just replace a tire sensor last week )

thanks.

called my dealer and service told me that it might be frozen. So they suggested to take hotwater and pour it on the valve ( note that i leaved the cap on to prevent water from actually getting in the stem). Which actually worked ! I was able to unfreeze my valve and add air into my tire.

Glad you got it figured out and it was something simple like that.
