Re: service Tire Pressure Monitoring Systems.HELP

Full disclosure - I read most of the posts in here but didn't read all of them because after reading some, I knew this was the best place to ask the following question...

Quick backstory - replaced all 4 wheels and tires. Approx a week after, I'm getting the SERV TPMS message. All 4 sensors are transmitting the correct tire pressures however, the error message is still displayed. I have been to the tire shop 3 times to have them try to "relearn" the sensors, etc. No luck.

Here's my Question: Since I am taking it to the dealer, is there anything I should bring up to them or specifically point out to them?

It's a 2012 WK2 - approx 32k on the clock. I am the second owner.

Any help would be appreciated and FWIW, that's an amazing story about Lyme - I found it more interesting than tire pressure monitoring systems!!

Thanks,
B Mack

Have the same message and unable to clear with the 18" wheels on 2014 GC LTD. Replace the standard 20" wheels with 18" when towing as it could be difficult to replace 20" in outback AU. Dealership has had 2 goes at reprograming wheels and believe that it's a wheel rim mismatch? as all sensors are giving out the correct data but fault reappears after a few KM's, OK with 20" on. 18" are a set from a Laredo GC 2012 with the correct part number sensors fitted. All operates fine just the warning light as tyre pressure readings are correct and checked for each wheel.

Re: service Tire Pressure Monitoring Systems.HELP

I can't imagine that Jeep is still using the same system they had in 2005-2007 but, if they are, just have them make sure that the TPMS sensor ID numbers for each of your wheels (and spare) are the same as the sensor ID's that are loaded into the WCM. If they're not, the stealer can program your new sensor ID's into the WCM using his StarScan tool.

Again, if it's the same system as the early ones, here's what I would do:
1. Read (requires tire dismount or a diagnostic tool that reads the sensors) or have read the Sensor ID's off the wheels that are on the vehicle, including the spare. You should be able to get this done for little or nothing at your local tire shop. Write them all down (including wheel position) and keep this info. as long as these sensors are on the vehicle.
2. If you must, go to the stealer and have them read the ID's that are programmed into the WCM. If they don't match, have them program the ID's you just got from the tire shop into the WCM. If the systems are the same as the early ones, this will turn your message off.
3. You may also want to check a few different tire places to see if any of them have the capability to reprogram the WCM. Since more and more TPMS Sensors on these things are going bad (mostly battery life), more of the tire shops are finding out that the system doesn't reset itself, and either the new sensors need to be cloned to the WCM, or the WCM needs to be reprogrammed. I think I said earlier, I have an Autel MaxiDas DS708 diagnostic tool that has the capability to reprogram the WCM.

Good luck, and let us know how it goes.

Re: service Tire Pressure Monitoring Systems.HELP

Since folks were nice enough to reply to my post, I wanted to make sure I followed up with everyone.

My Appt at the dealer was yesterday. Up until Tuesday of last week, I was getting the TPMS message every time I started the car. The warning flashed for a bit, then stayed on the whole time the car was running. On Wednesday, when I drove to work in the morning, no light. Furthermore it didn't come on in the evening and hasn't been on since. I called the dealer to ask what to do...they suggested I bring it in anyway. So I did.

My "Advisor" said it could take 2 weeks for the system to recalibrate but that they would check them anyway. They said they're fine.

I did get clipped for about $400 for Front & Rear differential Service and transfer case service. In addition, there were 6 software updates but those were covered under the warranty. The dealer said I was due for new plugs very soon, which I thought was odd but I doubt I'll take it back there.

I just wanted to say thank you to every one. The knowledge shared made me feel confident that I would get my issue resolved...even though it ended up taking care of itself.

Best,
B Mack

Re: service Tire Pressure Monitoring Systems.HELP

UPDATE: The tpms light came back on and was on everyday for about 2, maybe 3 weeks. Today, the HUD informed me I was due for an oil change however, no tpms message.

Anyone experience the same thing?

Yes, but on a 2004 Chevy Tahoe. Had to replace the sensor in one of the wheels.
