Tire pressure warning light

Mine comes on and goes off quite regularly. Im thinking it may be from uneven wheel speed sensors resistance. I check the pressures and they are dead nuts even across all four.

Anyone have this issue and figure it out?

Thanks.

Actually no. I checked it last year by pushing on it to make sure it had air and it was hard.
How can the computer know if the spare is low?

Yes the spare must have 30 pounds or more or it will set the tire pressure warning.
It's magic.

That would mean I have a Bluetooth sensor in my rim. Or something able to communicate wirelessly. I don't think my basic 6 cylinder has that.

Tire pressure monitoring is federally mandated on cars now, and has been a standard feature for years. Your Commander is equipped with it, and can monitor all four tires, as well as the spare. Premium models came with individual tire pressure monitoring with readouts, but I believe base models only notify when a tire is low.

why is there no reading for the spare on models that read individual wheels? mine read correct pressures but they are not in the correct location. i have rotated them twice now and the locations do not update. i have never seen the spare pressure even though i check it and is ok.

Mine has only shown the spare when it is low.

Unfortunately, Chrysler didn't add the ability to see the pressure of the spare. When it gets low, the system will display a spare tire low message, but that's all.

As far as rotating and tire locations not updating, as far as I know there's no fix for that problem. The system is supposed to automatically detect each tire's location by using a process of elimination, but I've found the system to be very buggy.
