    Service tire pressure system

    I couldnt find a post that talks about this, so here I go; the tire pressure system light came on today, and none of the 4 pressures are available (will post a pic later). This is the first time that has happened, and do not know if there is a procedure to reset the system or if something is defective. I had new tires installed Wednesday, and everything was ok until today. Any thoughts?

    thanks

    There is a battery in each sensor. They last about 7 years on average. You should have 3 years of battery life remaining so I'd have to call damage to one of the sensors.

    Sometimes it can take a few miles (20?) for the sensors to find themselves with the BMC.

    I would take the car back to the tire shop (or your dealer) and have them test the senders. This can be done w/o removing a tire. It could be a coincidence the senders all failed at once, but it's possible the shop damaged them or replaced them with standard valve stems; senders usually fail one at a time.

    Per the industry, TPMS senders are designed to last 5 to 10 years or up to 100K miles, but there are a lot of variables. Each has a small battery. Some sources say 10K miles of city driving can be as draining at 100K highway. Other factors can be high temps (shortens battery life) and quick acceleration (transmits more). In the early days, only nitrogen or low moisture air was recommended, though I haven't heard of this recently. If the tire senders are all functioning properly, it is probable the tire change was coincidental. In this case, a scan tool is required to locate the failed part, often in a sensor (receiver). The TPMS requirement is relatively new (since 2008)... but one would think they'd be less buggy.

    Please let us know what you find.

    On the little 500, the sensors reset themselves, after a couple miles of driving. You might want to check the 500x owners manual, you might have to set them manually. I have other brand cars, you have to do that procedure. I bet that’s your issue. If they worked, before you you installed new tires. I doubt the batteries went dead. The sensor Batteries, are good for at least 5 years.

    Check the owners manual. Good Luck.

    I just read this off another forum....

    Once you have the correct tire pressure in all the tires. Open the tire pressure screen, and press and hold the ok button. The system Should reset it.

    Thanks guys for all your input. Honestly, I drove my car Wednesday after few months parked in the garage to get new tires. Today, I’m moving to the south and the light came up while driving. I have stopped a couple of times, but the light is till on; and clearly, it has not reset itself. I’m sitting at 27k miles and without warranty. So, I’ll scan the car as soon as I get to my destination, and hopefully reset the error. I’ll look into the owners manual to see if there’s something about it

    The 500L and 500X have different steering wheels. 2 different vehicle’s altogether/. I wonder if resetting the TPMS on the steering wheel, is similar? Here’s a video, on the procedure of the 500L system. It might be the same.

    Nope; nothing like that. Can’t reset the system from the EVIC.
    here are the pictures.

    According to the owners manual, the system will try to reset every engine cycle, and every 20 minutes if driving; the light will stay on if malfunction is detected, which it is in this case.

    so, is it possible that a sensor went bad because of how they handled the wheels, or is it just a coincidence?
    I got the tires installed at a Discount Tire, and the closest one I will have to my new place is 60 miles away!
    I guess I will have to see and try to reset it myself, and then contact them to see if they’d be willing to service my car considering I got tires from then few days ago.

    Any tire shop can check the senders and my local shop will do it for free... though some will charge if they need to reset the senders.

    I'd give the tire shop a call to let them know there is a problem and talk to the manager ASAP. I've had very odd repair coincidences in the past... but it sounds related.
