Hey Guys....quick question on the tire sensor light
 
I have the 05 Grand Cherokee Limited 5.7.
The amber tire sensor light on dash is lit....I thought on the limiteds, you could scroll thru the step menu on the info center and it would show all 4 tires and their respective pressures....I do not see this on my display and it tell me nothing about what tire sensor is reading low.....just the amber light...no messages at all on the screen.
Thanks

Not all of the limited WK's have the TPMS individual tire readouts. For example, my Dad's WK limited didn't have the feature, but my WK Limited does. If your tire light is on, bust out your handy dandy tire pressure gauge and figure out which tire is low on pressure. If your spare was low on pressure, a readout would come up on the EVIC and tell you, so it's likely one of your regular four tires!

Thx Brent.......checked all tires and the pressures are all good but light remains on.

Did you have to add any air? If so then you usually have to drive a few miles before the light goes out.

How many lbs of air do you keep your tires at? I guess I'd also check the spare to make sure.

Lastly, if the TPMS sensor(s) are failing/having issues, the light will come on. Without having the individual tire readouts though, I'm unsure of how you would diagnose which one is having issues. Perhaps the key flick trick (if your WK allows it - edit: looks like you have an 05, which allows the key flick trick for diagnostic codes in the EVIC/DTC). :thumbsup:

If all else fails, check a local tire dealer to see if they will scan your sensors for you and tell you if battery low, dying sensor, etc. Some will do it for free to get the fix business.
