If the Tire Pressure Management System in the Jeep Patriot is not working properly, you may have to reset the system. Follow the step below to re-initialize the TPMS.
The light indicator is a notification to warn you of significantly low air pressure or high-pressure loss in your tires and can affect the vehicles overall performance.
First, Check the Recommended Air Levels Needed:
- Refer to the Manufacturer’s Sticker located on the inside of the Driver’s door.
- Fill each tire to the recommended PSI/Air Pressure Levels (Warning will not disappear if pressure is lower than the recommendation).
- Make sure the spare has the correct amount of air as well (Yes, there is a sensor).
To Reset the Warning Light Perform the following steps:
- Drive above 15mph/24km for 20 minutes within the city to reset your system.
Thereafter, the warning light should be clear. However, keep in mind, after tires are inflated, the outdoor temperature affects how fast the air in the tires will adjust to the proper temperature, this could take a day, 2 or 3, simply be patient and give the tires time to adjust. In addition, if the tire pressure warning light stays illuminated past a week, you will need to have your vehicle serviced as there could possibly be a sensor issue or a tire puncture.
**NOTE: If you are unable to Reset the Tire Pressure Warning Light in the Jeep Patriot on the first try, REPEAT the step. If you are still unsuccessful, contact the dealership for assistance or consult your vehicle user’s manual.
