New dash warnings with no TPMS in tires??

I tossed some snow tires and rims off a Wrangler (without TPMS) onto my 2014 WK2 back in early November and the TPMS light came on as expected but quickly disappeared once the Jeep realized there was nothing in the tires sending signals and all was good.

Last week, I turned a fast sharp corner to clean an intersection and immediately after my dash lit up saying my front left tire pressure was low even though all 4 don't have any readings as there aren't any TPMS in the tires. I thought this would quickly disappear as the warning did when I first put my tires but it's now been a full week of commuting daily and the indicator light comes on every time I start as well as the big dash warning with the 4 tires comes up after about 10 minutes every time... is there a way to make this not happen anymore and go back to it not notifying me at all like it did for the past 2+ months??

Thanks!

No -- not other than adding sensors to your winter set. This system seems sort of wacky when senors are not present. I'm surprised your light ever went out (cleared). I did the same on my new 200. After installing my winter set, it took 4 days of driving in order for the light to come on. It's always on now. It doesn't bother me.

Ya I was pretty happy there was no warning lights/chimes or anything for a few months, but that all changed in a hurry. Now each time the HUD brings up the 4 corners of the Jeep with zero pressure readings for the tires it flashes "Service Tire Pressure System." Getting to my dealer is kind of a pain in the ass, but hopefully they'll be able to help get rid of it..

Re: New dash warnings with no TPMS in tires??

I think they will just suggest you install tpms, don't think they can clear it.

I have been running wheels without tpms for almost two years. When I first put them on, like you, the light came on for maybe 5 mins then disappeared. However, oddly in the past two years it has come on at least twice, and lasted a few days, maybe more before it went out again. Can't explain why...

No dealer will clear the fault. They will laugh at you. The only solution, is to install sensors in your winter set. Otherwise, you'll have to live with it.

In some states, you could fail a safety inspection with a tpms indication.
Comes from the Exploder/Firestone era when apparently tire pressure guages were too expensive and too complicated to use.
