Jeep Cherokee: Reset Tire Pressure System (TPMS)

Jeep Cherokee’s are equipped with a TPMS (Tire Pressure Monitoring System) to assist you in maintaining the correct tire pressure. The warning low-pressure indicator light which appears within your dashboard or via the EVIC, indicated by a chime, should turn off automatically after your tires receive the proper amount of air pressure/ PSI. The EVIC even indicates which tire has low pressure.

You can locate the manufacturer’s recommended tire pressure on the inside of the driver’s door.

Keep in mind, tire pressure does, in fact, change in different weather conditions, therefore, you should ask your mechanic or dealer about the levels for dissimilar temperatures. Lastly, if you constantly see this warning despite confirming proper pressure in all 4 tires plus your spare (Yes, there is a sensor there as well); Here are 2 options to follow to disable the warning light.


Option 1

  1. Inflate your tires to the proper pressure (Warning will not disappear if pressure is lower than the recommendation).
  2. Drive above 15mph/24km for 20 minutes within the city to reset your system.

Option 2

  1. Switch the ignition to the ON position without starting the vehicle.
  2. Press gas all the way to the floor 3x’s within 10 secs.
  3. Switch OFF ignition. After 10 secs start the engine.
