2005 grand Cherokee service tire pressure system


I found this on another site, it may help to understand what is happening, I also saw that there is a problem with the valve stems cracking since they're made out of aluminum and causing that problem. Here's the explanation provided on another site:

RodneyJ Answered 6 years ago
If a customer with a 2005 or later DaimlerChrysler vehicle equipped with Tire Pressure Monitoring (TPM) is concerned that the TPM lamp is on continuously, please be sure to inform the customer that the system is in place to warn of a low tire pressure situation, and a system diagnosis may not be required. The customer should be aware of the following: The Tire Pressure Monitoring (TPM) System will warn the driver of a low tire pressure based on the vehicle recommended cold placard pressure (the placard is located on the drivers side B-pillar).
The tire pressure will vary with temperature by about 6.9 kPa (1 psi) for every 6.5 Degrees C (12 Degrees F). This means that when the outside temperature decreases, the tire pressure will decrease - the customer should adjust his tire pressure for this decrease in pressure - please refer the customer to his vehicle owner's manual for information on how to properly inflate his vehicle's tires. The tire pressure will also increase as the vehicle is driven - this is normal and there should be no adjustment for this increased pressure.
The TPM System will warn the driver of a low tire pressure if the tire pressure falls below the low pressure warning threshold for any reason, including low temperature effects.
The TPM System will continue to warn the driver of low tire pressure as long as the condition exists, and will not turn off until the tire pressure is at or above recommended cold placard pressure. Once the low tire pressure warning has been illuminated, the tire pressure must be increased to the recommended cold placard pressure in order for the TPM warning lamp to be turned off. The system will automatically update and the TPM warning lamp will extinguish once the updated tire pressures have been received. The vehicle may need to be driven for up to 10 minutes above 25 kph (15 mph) to receive this information.


FOR EXAMPLE:

A 2006 300 has a recommended cold (parked for more than 3 hours) placard of 207 kPa (30 psi).

If the ambient temperature is 18 Degrees C (65 Degrees F) and the measured tire pressure is 186 kPa (27 psi) the TPM lamp will be OFF.

IF NOTHING IS DONE TO THE AIR PRESSURE IN THE TIRES and the ambient temperature drops to 20 Degrees F (-7 Degrees C) while the vehicle is parked, the approximate tire pressure will be 157 kPa (23 psi) and the TPM lamp will be ON.

IF THE VEHICLE IS DRIVEN TO REACH NORMAL OPERATING TEMPERATURE

WITHOUT ADJUSTING THE AIR PRESSURE and the ambient temperature stays at -7 Degrees C (20 Degrees F), the approximate tire pressure will rise to 186 kPa (27 psi) and the 1PM lamp will be ON.

To turn the TPM lamp OFF the tires must be inflated to the vehicle recommended cold placard pressure.

In order to properly maintain vehicle tire pressure, please refer to the owner's manual for additional information regarding tire inflation.

NOTE :Tire pressure should always be set based on cold inflation tire pressure (defined as the tire pressure after a vehicle has not been driven for more than 3 hours - and in outside ambient temperature).

Seasonal temperature changes will affect tire pressure, and the TPM system will monitor the actual tire pressure in the tire.
If a diagnosis of the system is required (for example, the lamp did not extinguish, or the lamp is flashing), please refer to service information available in TechCONNECT for additional information for TPM diagnosis. Please be aware that if the Wireless Control Module (WCM) is replaced, the TPM placard values may need to be reprogrammed. The TPM placard values do NOT need to be updated if the WCM has NOT been replaced, the TPM placard values are properly set at the factory.

Reset low tire


Must be something new. I have never reset low tire pressure. The recommended tire pressure for the vehicle with the correct size tires that came on the vehicle should be in the car manual and posted on the vehicle inside the door jams usually.

That signal is from your tire monitoring sensors, telling you that there is air pressure difference between tires. The tire pressure should be same in all tires.

Show symbols of warnings on 2003 audi


If you have access to a VAG-com cable you can probably find out more specific info.

Could you possibly take a picture of it and upload it? Also, have you read the manual? Go through to the instrument cluster section and look for the symbol. Could be some like this...

2_15_2012_1_44_08_pm.jpg

This icon is a Low Tire Pressure Warning light. This light comes on if your vehicle's tire pressure monitoring system (TPMS) detects a tire that is more than 25 percent underinflated. Driving on a low tire can be dangerous because it increases the risk of a tire blowout. A low tire can also cause your vehicle to brake unevenly, pull to one side, handle poorly and get reduced fuel mileage. If the TPMS Low Tire Warning light is on, check the air pressure in your tires as soon as possible, and inflate them to the recommended pressure.

The other choice sound as Traction Control light. It normally lights if the car detects slippage and engages the ESP. It will stay lit if you press the ESP button on the center stack of the dash. If it stay lit all the time regardless then it means something in the ESP system is broken, but I don't have the expertise to know what...maybe ABS sensor(s), but I honestly don't know.

Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I`ll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

Thank you for using FixYa, have a nice day

2007 tiburon exclamation point with a horse shoe around it


The little horse shoe-looking looking thing is actually supposed to be a cross-section of a tire. That would be your Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) trying to tell you to check the pressure in your tires because it has determined that one or more of them are low.

This is covered in the Owner's Manual.

What does an ! in a circle mean with ( ) around it


This (!) symbol is your TIRE PRESSURE MONITORING SYSTEM (TPMS) warning light.
The manual has this to say about it:
This system monitors tire pressure. if the low tire pressure warning light illuminates, check the tire pressure in all four tires. Adjust the low tire pressure to the recommended cold tire pressure shown on the Tire and Loading information label located in the driver's door opening. After tire pressures are adjusted, the vehicle will need to be driven at speeds above 16 MPH (25 km/h) to activate the TPMS and turn off the low tire pressure warning light.

Recommended tire pressure


Regardless of the vehicle, the manufacturer's recommended tire pressures are normally printed on a small plate attached to the vehicle. This is usually found in one of two locations: on the driver's door or on the body on the driver's side. The plates are normally installed below the latch on the door or on the frame, in a location that is not visible when the door is closed. If you open the door and look along the rear edge of the door or along the narrow section of the body that is hidden by the door, you should find such a plate. The recommended tire pressures are also included in the owner's manual and are molded into the tire's sidewalls. Unless the tires have been selected for a special purpose, in which case they will have their own specific guidelines, use the tire pressures printed on the plate or in the owner's manual.

There is not a lot of variation in the tire pressure between different automobiles, although some trucks and SUVs use lower tire pressures for off-road operation. The typical automobile uses a tire pressure between 30 and 32 psi on all four tires.

Maintaining the correct tire pressure is important. The vehicle's handling and safety will be adversely affected if the tire pressure is too low. Tire wear is also affected by incorrect tire pressures, both too low and too high.

My front tires look low. Tires just 1 year old but don't want to go "pay" for check. I have a gauge and can use it. BUT WHAT is the pressure for my car? Label under gas lid is gone.


For most tires the recommended pressure is around 35 psi (sae sorry I don't know metric) Without the label what i can recommend is to take the pressure of the back 2 tires, average the pressure and then put the front tires at that pressure. If they still look low add air at about 2lb increments just enough to make sure the tread is flat and square. Make sure all tires are at equal pressure. If the front tires continue to go low spray the tires gently with soapy water looking for air bubbles. It will show a leak if there is one and then you can have your tire repaired for less than the cost of a tire. Good luck.

Dashboard symbol horseshoe shape w/!...meaning?


I dont know if you are refer to one signal light like this...

2f20c4e.jpg

If this is right, is the Tire Pressure Monitor Sensor (TPMS) o Tire Pressure Monitor Systems (TPMS) are being used on more and more new vehicles. Low tires are potentially dangerous, especially if a vehicle is heavily loaded and traveling at highway speeds during hot weather. A low tire under these conditions is a blowout waiting to happen. The inflation pressure of the tires should be checked regularly, but many motorist do not check their tires. That is why Tire Pressure Monitor Systems are coming into use.

Tires are designed to operate within a certain pressure range. The recommended inflation pressure can usually be found in the vehicle owner's manual and on a decal that may be located in the glove box or door jam. The recommended inflation pressure is designed to give the best combination of ride comfort, load carrying capacity and rolling resistance.


NOTE: The maximum cold inflation pressure on the sidewall of a tire is NOT the recommended inflation pressure. It is a maximum limit for the tire only. The recommended inflation pressure for most passenger car tires is 32 to 34 psi (cold).

Hope helps (rated this).

How do i reset the low tire pressure light


The only way to reset the low tire pressure light is to fill the tires to the recommended pressure. If all of the tires on the ground are at the proper inflation remember that the spare also has a pressure sensor so you will have to check it also. If one of the tire pressure sensors is damaged from remounting a flat or otherwise it will not send a signal to the low tire pressure module.
