Problem with internal tire pressure sensors

Hi all,

I was wondering if any of you who have a late model GC Limited could help me out with this. My 2002 JGC limited has the internal tire pressure readout, and it is usually pretty accurate. However, recently I got a nail in my left rear tire, and it kept telling me that I had low pressure in the right front tire. It says in the book that after a rotation, just driving it for a few minutes, it figures out where all the tires are (this is what I remember reading, but I don't have the owner's manual handy at the moment). I was wondering if anyone else had any trouble with this, and if they had figured out what the deal was.

Any help is appreciated!

Ok, it turns out that there is a way documented in the owner's manual for this. The mechanics at the DEALERSHIP told me last time that it just learns as you drive where the tires have moved to. That is of course, crap.

The mechanic who fixed a couple of other issues under warranty for me yesterday showed me how to do it. It involves a magnet that sits with the spare tire.

Just thought that anyone curious would like an update.
