Spare, Low Pressure Message

Well I have a 2006 Jeep Commander Limited W/5.7 Hemi, Magnaflow Muffler and a K&N filter. Love the ride but can't get the warning message "Spare, Low Pressure". And yes I double checked the pressure and it is at 36PSI. How to get the message off? I have a Diablo Predator and cleared all the code messages and still can't get that message to go away.

The sensor may be bad. you can pick them up on ebay. I think the dealer has to program it.

I put air in mine and the messages goes away it is hard to get to without dropping spare. I will air it up to 40psi so it takes awhile to go down and come on again, if you are using a stick tire gauge they may be way off, I use a dial or electronic.
Have a second set of rims for studded tires and the system picked up the new sensors automaticaly. If you have to get a new sensor be sure you get the right one as the frequencies have been changed on the newer systems.

I read somewhere in the manual that the tire pressure sensors are a comparative function - so they are not triggered by a specific psi, but if one tire is more than a pound or two lower than the others. So, you may want to compare the pressure in your spare to that of your other four.

The TPS does measure the tire pressure -- it does not compare the pressures in the tires to each other.

I'm having a similar problem, but I can't get the light to go out. I have replaced the sensor and put 40 psi in the tire and the light still won't go out. I even put the tire in another location and it worked fine, showed the pressure no problem. Put it back in the spare location and the light is still on. Anybody have any ideas?

Maybe a bad sensor ? Not the one in the tire but the receiver.

Do you know if that is something I can replace? Is there a receiver for each wheel?
