Tire pressure light wont turn off

So I recently swapped out my stock 2012 JK Wrangler tires for the Rubicons BFGoodrich mud tires and rims and now my tire pressure light will not turn off. Any suggestions? Also, with these new tires I have noticed my speedometer is roughly 3mph over the displayed speed at 30mph and at 60mph its 5mph over. Is there a possible home fix I could to correct this, or should I take it into a shop to have it readjusted?

Buy the aev procal or superchips and adjust your new tire size to correct the speedo and disable the TPMS. Or install new TPMS in your new tires. Welcome to the forum and you might want to read the frequently asked questions and learn to use the search feature. Goodluck

If the actual TPMS sensors did infact get swapped over, you should be able to reprogram the computer to change the parameters for the light. But if the sensors did not get switched over you will only be able to disable the light entirely.

... and see what it's really going to take to build one...and then I'm going to triple that cost/time estimate and see how I feel.

As mentioned above, assuming the original sensors were put into the new rims, you may have to drive over 15 mph for up to 20 minutes. Might be shorter, but the sensor signals are sent only periodically so you have to hit the reading right. Make sure all the tires are aired up plenty, including the spare and go for a nice drive.

Getta AEV Procal Module ($149)-

You'll be able to useit for a multitude of different options that'll be useful to operating your jeep, especially after you make whatever mods you want--

Especially resetting the TPMS sys, or disabling it !
