Either you have to drive a bit or have them reset. Tire shops can normally do this too. Not sure on the 13's yet though I know they have a new TPMS frequency.

If it does not correct itself in the next couple of days of driving its an easy fix at the dealer, just have to reprogram the sensor. about 5 min.

It should be corrected within 5 miles of driving. There has been situations in the past where folks have come across bad batches.

have you checked them to see what they're actually running at?
Typically they will go off if you go under about 30psi, or I believe if the computer sees a large disparity between one and the others.

Check them yourself, including your spare, just to make sure that everything really is good to go. Give it a day or so of driving, if it hasn't reset, then take it back to the mothership.

Donít just assume that they came from the factory with the proper psi. Always check (all 5) the pressure yourself especially if they came from a tire shop.

^^^ Funny you should mention them (discount, a store by me) because thatís the tire shop that I use and it happens more times than not over the years.

from the service manual:

When diagnosing a tire pressure issue, always check air pressure in the tires first with a known accurate air gauge. Adjust air pressure as necessary to that listed on the Tire Inflation Pressure Label (Placard) provided with the vehicle (usually applied to the driver’s side B-pillar). After adjusting air pressure in a tire on the vehicle, allow approximately two minutes for the message or indicator lamp to go out.

The 2013 Wrangler uses the 433 MHz TPM sensor. Although 315 MHz and 433 MHz sensors are identical in size and shape, they are not interchangeable.
