Wheel psi sensors & tire rotation

Just about to rotate the tires. I didn't think about this until now. Obviously, the spare dosen't have a sensor in it (does it?) and I can't rotate the spare in the tire rotation due to this, although I haven't looked at the owners manual or the spare yet to see what it says. Anybody run into this?

Re: Wheel psi sensors & tire rotation

I haven't even checked my spare....but if it has a metal stem like your other tires than you should be good to go.

Re: Wheel psi sensors & tire rotation

I believe the spare does have a tire pressure sensor in it.

From WKJeeps.com (I doubt that the Commander would be LESS equipped than the Grand Cherokee): "A sensor is installed in the spare wheel if the vehicle is equipped with a matching full size spare wheel and tire assembly"

Re: Wheel psi sensors & tire rotation

The Limited has TPS on the spare also which would suggest that the wheel has TPS sensor on it

Re: Wheel psi sensors & tire rotation

If you have the base-TPMS, it doesn't matter if the wheels are moved to different positions. If you have the upgrade-TPMS, the wheels need to be re-calibrated. A magnet is used to allow the system to find each sensor in their new position so that the readings are displayed in the proper location.

Re: Wheel psi sensors & tire rotation

Good Tip! Had tires rotated on last oil change by the dealership service dept. Hopefully they do this!

Advanced TPS is standard on the limited.


The easy way to find out... hit the "STEP" button on the dash and scroll through the display... if you have the advanced TPS you will see a small vehicle on the display with the tire pressure beside each wheel location.

Re: Wheel psi sensors & tire rotation

If you have the dealer rotate, tell them to include the spare if you want it rotated. The first time I let them rotate my Liberty tires, they didn't rotate my spare, they said people usually don't rotate their spare. I could understand it if the spare wasn't on a matching rim, but they should ask anyways, probably just my dealer. I rotate my own now, they charge too much!

The XK does not use a magnet to recal, and does not need to be recalibrated after a tire rotation in any configuration. The computer will figure out where the tires have moved to within a few miles of driving at most. All WKs & XKs have a sensor on the spare tire.
