Tmps and sentry key light coming on!

Anyone find out what causes these lights to come on and go off?! I have a 2008 JK Wrangler with about 95k miles and it's been doing it for months. I just had the TIPM replaced as it was acting possessed and thought it would stop these lights from coming on, but no!! It usually does it when it is cold. Dealership is also stumped....

Hi everyone! Also wondering if this has been resolved...I just purchased my first jeep wrangler also 2008 a few months back and I am having the same issues! I will point out though when I first bought it (it only had 16,800 miles) and I had 6 sensors lights all come on at the same time! The dealership narrowed it down to my steering sensor? (sorry I do not know cars..all I know is it had something to do with a sensor with my steering) fixing this made 3 of the lights stop coming on. I then had just one sensor still coming one (if I recall I believe it was my ABS light). In the end they replaced two sensors and I have not had a problem since. Until now when my tire pressure and sentry key light both flash on as described in this thread. It started about two weeks ago and it does not happen frequently...but would love to know how to fix this! Thanks for your help!

Well 2 years later and I also have a 2008 and am having the SAME freaking problem. I've looked everywhere online and no answers. Any one get a fix for this in the two years since this last post? My 2008 is only a week old to me and the dealer I got it from is an hour away. I'd hate to have to leave it there only for them to dig through and find nothing. This really blows. There HAS to be a fix.

I'm the OP and I have tried many things but nothing has worked. Sorry to say it's just a quirk of my JK that I have gotten used to...

My dealer's service department broke down the electrical diagram and found a short and had to re-solder a connection and the problem went away

I doubt a Honda dealership would be that smart to figure it out. Wonder what it would cost to take it to someplace knowledgeable about such things.

Any idea of which electrical connection/solder it was?

My issue seemed to have gone away. Didn't happen for almost 2 months and then it came back on a particularly cold day.
