Random TPMS problem
so i just got done installing my system today. Now the TPMS system is flashing system error?? :confused::confused:

so im wondering, what can i narrow it down to? dynamat in the trunk? huge amp grounds in the trunk? power wire under the hood?

whats the system error mean? cant detect? or one of them is bad?

Re: Random TPMS problem
Do you have the EVIC readout that tells what each tires pressure is or just the flashing dash light?...2 different systems.

Re: Random TPMS problem
just the flashing light.

is the aftermarket head unit a possible culprit? i thought i saw something about the TPMs being effected.

Re: Random TPMS problem
If your tires are inflated properly you have one or more of the following issues.

Bad TPMS sensor (inside the rim)
Bad TPMS body sensor (Located in each wheel well)
Loose/corroded electrical connection to the TPMS body sensors
Possible radio interference as the TPMS operates on a radio frequency

These Jeeps have a very sensitive electrical system. If your drawing to much power from the battery or the wrong circuit they will freak out.

I'd start by checking your fuses, disconnecting the power wires to everything you have installed/modified. Once there is no power draw for your mods (they are isolated from the Jeeps electrical system) see if the problem still exists and go from there. It may have nothing to do with what you did and it just happened at the same time...Best to isolate and track down the problem by ruling out things you have modified and then move on to the stock components.
