Retraining probable requires digital readout box to reset the computer and unless you know someone who has one the dealer is probably your best bet. All of the tires are in good shape with the proper pressure. Aug 22, 2009 I have a 2005 with tire pressure monitoring also and was surprised when I rotated the tires that the system continued to work O. Problem with this application is that if you mount snow tires on wheels without the pressure sensor units, he overhead display will not be available to you since it will always read a message that your pressure sensor unit needs to be fixed. I wonder if the dealer has something to tell which one easily? It's a lose-lose situation for Chrysler.
Last time I had it done, all 5 tires were at exactly 51 psi. Maybe when tires were rotated. Your input would be extremely appreciated! I took the vehicle to my independent mechanic who discovered a leaking tire valve due to corrosion. Tires losing pressure in cold weather is physics. I need to get this resolved before I buy new tires.
Due to the fear that this might happen again, I had the remaining sensors replaced at a significant cost to me. Many dealers have found that customers will not accept the costs for repair and may attribute any breakage to the dealer if there is no audit trail. Fortunately, the flat was on the right rear tire. Has anyone out there performed this test successfully? It will turn off after a period of driving at a sufficient speed, usually 1-20 minutes at speeds more than 15-20 mph. I'm not going to make the judgement on whether or not federally-mandated tire pressure monitoring systems are appropriate or not, but I will say that people do not respect the only link between them and the road enough to stick an air gauge on there once a month and check things out. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. I need your help guys.
The contact stated the tire stem sensor fail on the left rear side. Couple that with, and I'm guessing here, they probably weren't checked since summer. Retraining probable requires digital readout box to reset the computer and unless you know someone who has one the dealer is probably your best bet. Then I find out that this is a common problem that is well documented, yet no recalls that I can find as of yet. From this experience, I would say that the warning system is a good one.
Jul 08, 2012 Try disconnecting the battery once the pressures are set and good. I also assume the batteries are not replaceable, and once I confirm this, I will be shopping for a new sensor. The seatbelt sensor may be malfunctioning. Upon further investigation the other 3 on the car are very corroded and split. Okay Shipo, looks like you nailed this one. This was the second time in two weeks that the sensor had alerted me to a low pressure situation with this tire. In Feb 2012, the consumer was informed that there was a hole in the valve stem again.
While driving 30 mph, the passenger side tire failed and the valve stem fractured inside the rim. If you install a new sensor , it must be re-programed into you main compute … r. Drive the car for 3-16 minutes and it should reset itself. Gave tire warning and then each tire showed zero pressure after about a minute of the first tire doing this. Front right tire was low and when I took the cap off, the valve stem broke off in my hand. I can complete step one above without fail. All of the tires are in good shape with the proper pressure.
The contact stated that the tpms warning light randomly flashed and then remained illuminated. The dealer stated that the sensors should not be replaced because the stems would fracture again. I have 2 sets of tires on alloy rims each with sensors. Each time a code has been successfully loaded the horn acknowledges. Maybe when tires were rotated.
The failure mileage was 79,000. I've read in other boards that the cold weather is to blame. Each time a code has been successfully loaded the horn acknowledges. The tires looked ok, so I didn't check it until the next day. Per the door pressure recommendation tag, mine calls for 36psi.
Car picked up from frank stifter where he indicated only one valve stem was bad. I own two, and both read exactly the same, back-to-back on the same tire. I remember the days with my 1970 Challenger when a set of rear tires was good for maybe 7,000 miles. I know I'm going to take it in next week. They showed me the fault was a corroded tpms device. There is a section in the driver's manual that talks about needing to replace a battery in, what I read as, the stem mount assembly.
It has done this for quite some time, and I can't recall if there was a particular event that caused it. If there is one reason I dont buy another Chrysler this is it. Within less than a month of owning the vehicle, the tpms warning light randomly illuminated. The dealership guys have said a van will come in and they replace one sensor and a week later they come back with another one bad so it seems like it would be worth while to just replace all the sensor at once and or at least two a time. Inflate all tires to correct pressure specification as indicated on the Vehicle Tire Placard. She was driving up to New York and the Van started dinging and saying that she had a flat tire. Air leaked out of the tire until the tire was flat.
