yes it does.... then it creates a polar vortex

Your low pressure light will stay on in the dash, that's about it.

That or it may flash. Procal or Flashcal will fix that easy enough though

I did this and just used the procal to set the sensor to zero (basically turning it off). takes just a couple of seconds.

The light will come on and you will get a chime every few minutes. Pretty darn annoying but not the end of the world.

The $149 buck ProCal Module (AEVPM) is so worth the money-

The AEVPM has about 6 or 7 functions you can use to customize/modify your jeep and they're all easy-

Disabling the TPMS is so convenient/pleasing too-

Good luck

How much and where do you buy those sensors? Just because it would be nice to see how much air is in your oversized tires?

Sensors are getting cheaper. You can now get a set of 4 for about $140-$160. They used to cost that much just for one sensor!

Correct they do tell you the pressure of each individual tire. This brings a question to mind and that is are these devices addressed, in other words is the left front sending unit programed to be just that, a left front sending unit. If so what happens when you rotate tires. Are they automatically readdressed to the new location some how.

I havent done mine yet but from what ive heard yes. The truck registers the sensors based on distance from the module and reprograms. Just have to drive it a little for it to work.

They don't if you do not have the EVIC. My '13 JKR is fairly basic lacking this nice to have. I have to do it the old fashion way.

Thats surprising that its an option on a rubi. Most seem to come pretty well equipped
