Proud new Commander owner

Pickup up my 2007 Hemi Limited Commander (LPG converted) on Friday
Very happy with it.
Just a couple of things I'd like to ask about it.

1. Keep getting a message about spare wheel pressure - it doesn't have a spare because that is where the LPG tank is. Is there a way to tell it to stop warning about it?
2. How do I service the parking sensors? Tried spraying the connectors with WD40.
3. Anybody know where I can get a roof basket in the UK?

I've already removed the 3rd row seats in preparation for installing a bespoke dog carrier system for 4 dogs. any advice recommendations welcome.

Because you have a Limited, you have the more elaborate TPM system which looks for and reports the tire pressure from each individual TPM sensor - including the TPM sensor the spare tire would have; The fact that you don't have a spare tire, doesn't stop the TPM sensor system from looking for readings from that sensor;

As far as I know, the only way you can stop this from happening is by completely disabling the TPM sensor system; There is a thread that explains how you can do that here:

https://www.jeepcommander.com/forums...s-issue-2.html

As far as servicing your parking sensors I'd only recommend taking them out and cleaning the contacts/connectors as best you can - with a small wire brush and some contact cleaner/lubricant.

I can't help you with a source in the UK for a roof basket - maybe some of our other UK members (there are 4 of 5 that I know of right off the top of my head) can chime in here.

I went to view that one about 5 weeks ago Mainly to get a feel for the Commander to see if I wanted one or not. What was the overall condition like as I did nothing but look at the exterior and start it up?

You local to the area? I'm based in Swinton which isn't too far from where you got the car from. Any plans to go green laning?
