Shortly after purchase I replaced the tires (Goodyear). They needed to be replaced, but that did not solve the problem either.
I took it back to the dealer twice. Believe the second time they said they reset the sensors and aligned the pressure in each tire.
That did not fix it either. One of the service guys gave me a long-winded answer (sounded like BS) that this light comes on in a lot of cars and it should be a problem more in the mornings due to the temperature change. I pointed out to this guy that it comes on at all times of the day and at all temperatures.
Does anyone have any advice for my next move?
The light is really annoying and I want to get it fixed somehow.
A jeep dealer , or any shop for that matter should have been able to figure out whats wrong pretty easily as any fault or low pressure will flag a code .. but i would Definitely check your spare pressure and make sure the values are close to what is written on the tire placard located on the drivers door or pillar ( should be 33 or 35psi i think) when i bought my wk i had a tpms fault which was caused by an over-inflated tire. here's the info from the owners manual if you don't have
TIRE PRESSURE MONITOR SYSTEM
Tire Pressure Monitoring — Base System
The Tire Pressure Monitor System (TPM) system uses
wireless technology with wheel rim mounted electronic
sensors to monitor tire pressure levels. Sensors, mounted
to each wheel as part of the valve stem, transmit tire
pressure readings to the Receiver Module.
NOTE: It is particularly important, for you to check the
tire pressure in all of your tires regularly and to maintain
the proper pressure.
The “Tire Pressure Monitoring Indicator Lamp”
will illuminate in the instrument cluster, and an
audible chime will be activated when one or more
tire pressures is low. The “Tire Pressure Monitoring
Indicator Lamp” will flash on and off for ten seconds
when a system fault is detected. The flash cycle will
repeat every ten minutes or until the fault condition is
removed and reset.
The Tire Pressure Monitoring System consists of the
• Receiver Module
• 5 Wheel Sensors (including Full Size Spare Tire)
• Amber Colored Tire Pressure Monitoring Indicator
The system will consist of tire pressure monitoring
sensors attached to each wheel through the valve stem
mounting hole, a central receiver module and an amber
STARTING AND OPERATING 269
colored Indicator Lamp. A sensor is located in the spare
wheel if the vehicle is equipped with a matching full size
spare wheel and tire assembly.
