If the car has wheels/tires installed without tpms sensors, am I going to throw a CEL?
dumped500 and Lovar:Yup it does but it only flashes a couple times at start up, then stays on for the rest of the time, I have gotten used to it, because it seems like the more items you turn on in your car the more lights that turn on in the cluster. so its not really that much of an extra distraction.
I no longer have sensors in my wheels, this is what is causing my issues haha, is there any way the dealer can deactivate the tire monitoring system?dumped500 and Lovar:
Im sorry that both of you are experiencing annoyances with this sensor... the tire pressure monitoring system is very sensitive to outside weather pressure and ambient temperature changes. Unfortunately, Ive seen it happen with other vehicles of the Chrysler brand as well (300, PT Cruiser, sebring, 200). When its warmer outside, air expands in the tire, but if there is a cold front, (or extreme cold) that light will most likely illuminate due to pressure drop. You can add air to the tires, but that's really all that can be done if the dealer/studio does not deem it defective. I know we are working on improving that system.
i like the idea! except then I'd have to add 32lbs of spare tire to the car and thats a mojo nono for this weight freak.A little trick. If you have a spare tire, put the sensors inside the tire and fill it up. It will get rid of the light, but makes the spare useless....Your choice
