Odd- Temp light + Low Tire Press Light

Iíve come across an issue where sporadically my temp light and low tire pressure lights come on at the same time. They will both appear for 1-4 seconds then go away for several minutes before re-appearing. Iíve had all the required service from the dealership. And just completed, a few months ago, the complete 36K mile service where all the fluids are flushed/replaced. During our short winter here in Texas this would occur only when the heater was on. As long as I was willing to freeze on the way to work I didnít have to deal w/ the warning lights; however yesterday while the temp was in the 80s was the first time the lights came on w/ the a/c on. All the tires are fully aired up and all the fluids are topped off. I flipped the key on a couple of times to see if there was anything on the display that would appear and nothing came up. Ideas?

First, Welcome to the forum!

Probably have to look at any codes that were generated and might need to reboot the ECM - If that fails might need a reflash at the dealer. The reboot is easy, just disconnect the battery for about 10 to 15 minutes and then reconnect.

Was this ever resolved?

I have the same thing happening occasionally.... It may be related to having the heater on? Anyone else have this happen? Any fixes? Weird...

I have seen this on several 2008's and 9's. Check tire pressure. When aired up and on the highway tire pressure increases, especially at 80 mph in TX, I was just there.

I aired up in Vegas to 35 psi and by Fort Stockton I was at 41 psi. I find the TPMS and red hot dot illuminate accompanied by a ding.

As usual it's not 100% with the Chrysler can bus but a good place to start.

Okay, that could be it, it tend to overinflate a little because the dial on the compressor is very coarse and difficult to read properly... I will try that, thanks.

My 08 wrangler does this too. Mine does it regardless of tire pressure and even when i have no sensors in my wheels. Sometimes it will go a month without doing it and sometimes it will do it 15 times within 5 minutes.....
