Getting conflicting info from the dealer. This forum says they will be picked up automatically by the computer. The dealer says they must be programmed.
Does anyone know the answer before I feed a service department 100.00?
I dont' know how the Mopar sensors works specifically, but I'd say they probably function exactly like all other TPMS sensors for the Jeeps. In that case, all you have to do is put them on and they should register within a few minutes. I've had two different sets swapped back and forth and never had them activated beyond just plug and play.
Why not try them first and if they don't work, take them to the dealer?
But honestly it sounds like the dealer is trying to scam you out of $100.
