Cracked Valve Stem Replacement
 
I have a cracked valve stem. Jeep quoted me at 180 to fix but I know it is easy to fix and my sensor is completely intact. I replaced the valve stem with a rubber one, which was cheap compared to the part jeep wanted me to get at 150. I verified everything works fine - tire pressure is correct in all tires BUT my tire pressure light will NOT go off.

I am pretty sure this is because its not a jeep part but can anyone point me in a direction to get this valve stem for less then 150???

I check out VdO.com which shows me the part I need i think...

Can anyone help point me in the right direction to fix this for less then 180 that jeep wants?

Check local tire stores.

Mike,

I'd agree a little with Bill, did you go to a local tire shop? or the dealer? both?

I'm sure other people have dealt with this.

Anyone with first-hand experience in this issue? I tried to help, ended up just sending him here for the collective knowledge base.

Edit: moved for visibility.

I am in the process of checking a few local stores. I was interested in seeing if this vdo.com site is legit and correct with the parts and if anyone has used them before to figure out parts that are needed.

so the rubber one you used, did have a TPMS sensor right or is it just a bare stem... Sorry I gotta ask.

If it doesnt have a sensor then thats your problem.

Also the signal on them changed in 07 or 08 so if you got an early wk sensor or a late wk sensor dependant on which year you have could be your issue.
