If the Tire Pressure Management System on the Jeep Wrangler is not working properly, you may have to reset the system. Follow these steps 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 is NOT to be ignored, as low pressure affects the vehicles overall performance such as:
- How the vehicle drives.
- Increases the need for fuel.
- Tire failure.
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.
To Reset the Warning Light Perform the following step:
- Drive 20 minutes or more at 15mph/24kmph or faster.
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 Wrangler on the first try, REPEAT the steps. If you are still unsuccessful, contact the dealership for assistance or consult your vehicle user’s manual.
