ABS and TPMS Sensor Help

Hey all,

I recently installed 22" XO Caracas Wheels on my 2014 Grand Cherokee Summit. I bought them used off of a local guy that had them on his High Altitude. Long story short, the tpms sensors never synced
so I took it to am mom & pop tire shop down the road from work to see if they could reprogram them for me. They call me 3 hours later to tell me that they tried but could not get it reprogrammed, and to tell me that whatever they did now caused the ABS light to be in!

First, what relation would the two systems have? Second, is there a parameter that they could have changed that would cause the ABS light to illuminate?

I was thinking that if they changed the diameter of the wheel/tire on one tire and not all, this would throw the wheel speed sensors off...but inrally have no idea how this system works...HELP?!?!

What year model was the High Altitude? TPMS changed sometime in those years and are not compatible after the change.

Re: ABS and TPMS Sensor Help

correct sensors will program themselves. must have wrong sensors. hopefully abs has no problem and light will cycle itself off. id try slamming on brakes and see if abs works. if not they did actually screw something up and youll have to get abs code read. wheel speed sensors should have nothing to do with the tpms system used on the jeep.

I'm not nearly as concerned about the tpms sensors as I am the new ABS light. I knew there was a chance it had the wrong sensors...but whatever they did caused the ABS light to come on.

If it's still under warranty I would just take it to the dealership and just tell them the light came on without going into details.
