TPM Malfunction

I bought a 2013 Jeep Wrangler unlimited sport 4 door last year. It was used with 11000 miles on it. Excellent shape inside and out. It has the 6 speed manual transmission in it which I love. My problem is that after 3 months of driving the TPM started malfunctioning. In the manual it says if the light comes on and blinks for a minute then it's malfunctioning. I took it in and they said it was because the spare had less than 20 psi in it which was complete bs. I don't keep my
Spare that low. I took it to a different jeep dealer and they said they fixed it by reprogramming all the sensors. When I drove home the malfunction lite came on again and has continued. The dealer I took it to the second time was the dealer I bought it from and they had put bigger tires than stock but the same stock rims. What is going on and how can I fix this? Someone please help.

It sounds like the battery in one of your tpms monitors is bad. They do go bad on occasion. I would set up a time at the dealer where you can stand by the tech and have him show you that all four sensors are transmitting. I will bet one of them is not and that's your culprit. It's the most likely scenario but not the only one. If this turns out to be true then you can have the sensor replaced and then reprogrammed and it should solve your troubles.

Great! Please post back the results so we can learn. This forum seems really slow to get a response to a tech question verses others I have been on. We all need to pick up the pace!
