    Have you checked the pressure in your spare tire also?

    To reset the tire sensors you need to air up all the tires to 40 pounds--then take the pressure down to normal- you may need to drive ti around the block to get it to then read right. I've had to have the dsealer reset mine twice and the last time I had them show me the secret- they said when the monitors first came out they used magnets and voodoo to reset it- until DC told them the inflate/deflate method.

    I had the same problem, The dealer was too dumb to check the spair tire. I'mm glad it was still on warranty, when I got it back home the fourth time I checked the tire pressures my self,and found the spare down to 25psi.I drove it for a few miles and the light went off.

    Default 5 tire basic system

    We have had our 2005 Renegade with the basic system for almost 1 year. I felt I understood the system well. I also have looked at part numbers and have not seen anything about the valve stem/transmiter having different frequencies. I check all 5 tires reqularly and have had very minor changes. So the wife calls during a drive and the light went on. After stopping and checking all 5 tires she calls again and says they are all good, and having turned the engine off then back on it went away in a few minutes. I am tempted to believe she past in close proximaty to another vehicle that had a valvestem/sensor activated and it registered in our system. What do you think? Has anyone had what they thought was a one time short duration false trigger? If so this will be more common if more vehicles are built with more transmiters on the same frequency.

    My system has worked perfectly. I have had three alerts: two for the spare tire, and one when I picked up a nail. I never would have known about the nail because the pressure had dropped to 25 psi, and the tire looked normal. I inspected it carefully, and I found the nail! I love this system. BTW, my computer readout always tells me what tire it is. I never have to "reset" it, just add air to the tire.

    Mine did this one time. With my 2004 i must use a magnet to "re-train" the tire sensors. That was over a year ago.

    If I change tire sizes will it mess the sensors up? I'm looking at swapping out the stock 225/75 for 235/70 wrangler silent armors.

    Do you have to drive them at 40PSI and then deflate them to normal pressures to reset the TMP system?

    This is a great system. It gave me an alert again yesterday and the computer said the tire was down to 21 lbs. I got out the tire gauge, and sure enough, that's what it was. I picked up another nail. After I pumped up the tire, the alert just went away - no reset necessary.
