Service Tire Press. System

"Service Tire Press. System" I got this message on the EVIC today. I've had my Jeep for 4 years and have never seen this. It's not the low pressure indicator. The manual says there may be a fault in the system and it should go to an authorized dealer for repair. Anybody else have experience with this message. Do you think simply disconnecting/reconnecting the battery would solve the problem.

Re: Service Tire Press. System

if you take it to any firestone or tire center they have tools there that tell which sensor is the bad one ... mine did the same thing also ...

1) ask them to reset the tpms system ...

2) if problem still persists ask them to locate the bad sensor with their device (my friend works at firestone and he helped me find it with his sensor thing sorry don't know the name of it)

3) If sensors show all good and you reseted and problem still persists ... that's out of my expertise but I will ask him for you tomorrow. PM me if problem still persists.

Re: Service Tire Press. System

I had a guy tell me that the battery life in the sensors is about 4-5 years. Could be that.

Re: Service Tire Press. System

Better off replacing all 4 if you have the money. Start fresh.

The factory service manual states that the battery life is up to 10yrs, so yeah about half that is probably closer to reality.

The batteries can not be replaced.

Nope they can't. Have to replace the whole sensor. J4J has them for about $50 a pop but I've heard ebay has them for half that.

Re: Service Tire Press. System

How do you know which is the bad sensor. The EVIC is displaying the correct pressure for all 4 tires. Is it possible it's the spare that's the problem. I've been out of warranty for almost a year. Just trying to save myself some dough. If I know which one it is, I can buy one and have any tire shop put it in.

Re: Service Tire Press. System

there is a device which can tell which frequency is out ... you might want to google it or check ebay for it ...

did you get a quote from firestone it shouldn't be that expensive at all to check which one is bad ...

or just go the easy route replace all of them you can find cheap buys for all of them on ebay ... that's what ended up doing ... plus will save you the hassle of having to check which one it is ...

The evic will display the correct pressure the warning is for the batteries dying down ...
