Thanks for the posts. Both of my tires had the silver plastic caps that came original with the car. Apparently, when I went to get an oil change the people who checked the tire pressure were just going fast and/or had too rough of hands cracking 2 of the four sensors. From what the dealer told me, theses aren't delicate pieces but you can't go forcing things on/off of it.

I had the metal one's on mine.. what a pain! Had to use channel locks to get the caps off. But I never noticed the the rubber seal on the replacement caps i put on.. i'll have to look.

I had two of mine break off while changing from snow tires to all season. OEM caps. The shop I was at tried to bill me for it and I told them they weren't broke when I dropped the car off so I ended up not paying.

Same problem

I am having the same problem with my 2014 compass. The low pressure light came on a couple of weeks after I purchased the vehicle but all the pressures were good. Then the light went off and no more problems until this week. The light has come back on and will not go off. All pressures are good and my local shop checked yesterday and said that neither sensor on the drivers side tires are responding so off to the dealer tomorrow.

Kind of the same problem. 2014 Patriot, TPM comes on when
driving for an hour or so. After about 5 mins, it goes back off.

Was told it was normal. Funny, the Commander doesn't do it.

When we do right, no one remembers. When we do wrong, no one forgets.

Our 2015 Compass has the same system. I wonder, when the light comes on it checks and says "tirE". Dos that designate witch tire it is, or is this just a stupid function of the dash panel? It would be helpful in drilling down to the correct tire instead of aving to service an 5 (include the spare!)

I have a Jeep Compass 2010 and my tire senor light popped up while driving. i checked the tires a week before as the sensor light came on and noticed 1 tired was a little low so filled it with air. now a week later sensor light back on again,
and i checked tires, and no air is required. so now i am not sure what to do. sensor light is still on?

A 2010 model would likely have the metal tire stems (they are silver colored). These are known to have corrosion issues which can cause small leaks. Easiest way to check for that is to use 'snoop', which is soap and water (or you can buy it). Wet the stems down with snoop and any air leaks will show up as bubbles. A 2010 model could also simply have some age related issues if they are the original sensors, so the sensors may need to be serviced or replaced. If you do replace them get the rubber stem ones, not the metal.

First thing first though, try pumping that tire up again and go a bit higher than the normal pressure. The control logic probably has a deadband as well as some temperature compensation. So sometimes you need to go to a higher pressure to get it to reset.
