2013 TPMS compatibility

Does anyone know if the TPMS sensors from a 2011-2012 Grand Cherokee will work on a 2013 JKUR ? It looks like the Grand Cherokee sensors are 433mhz but I am wondering if anything else is different?

I'm looking for a 2nd set of sensors for winter wheels and there are alot more GC sensors available than 2013 Wrangler sensors. (cheaper)

Thanks,

I'd like to know if the sensors from a '13 will work on a '12 if I buy '13 takeoffs for my '12?

I have read on more than one occasion that the sensors or frequency what have you was changed from 12 to 13 and they are hence forth not compatible with each other. I don't know if this is true.

Well then the sensors for the 13's become effectively useless and the takeoff values of that year dropped accordingly. I'll offer $800 for a set now if this proves to be true since new sensors are $100+.

It's been posted on here frequently that there was a change in 12. I have a set from a 12 and they work fine on my 09. Nothing has been substantiated regarding a frequency change and what its effect might be. All we know for certain is that their is a different dash read out in the 13.

DTD told me there are 2 different frequencies for 2011, which, if true across the board, would mean that even if there aren't any changes, from 2012 to 2013, you might be sol anyways.

Did you read the post directly above yours?

My understanding is that the sensors from a 2013 JK that has the connectivity group will not work in the 2012 JK as the 2013 units operate on a different frequency. Anybody know for sure? I think the non-connectivity package sensors will work fine.

I can confirm that the freq did change in 2013, but I'm not sure if it depends entirely on the connectivity group. It could, though.

It's probably no help to you, but I bought a set of wheels from a 2008 or 2009 with TPMS, they work fine on my 2012.

2013's show tire pressure per wheel, rather than flash a warning on 2012 or earlier. Different frequency but if they worked for ronsol it may still function on 2012 and older. Don't think that 2012 or earlier sensors would work on a 2013.

I just put 2013 Sahara tires on my 2006 Cherokee. No tpms. But at least I can check the pressure from my old tires piled in the corner of the garage every morning when I leave for work in my Jeep.

Just picked up a set of 2013 Rubicon wheels and tires with the TPMS sensors from the Connectivity group. Drove around with them on today and the the TPMS light did indeed come on. Frequency change confirmed.

Guess I am either getting a Procal to turn off the TPMS or headed to a local tire shop to have them change the sensors over from my old wheels.

Oh well! Love the new wheels and tires though, look great!

I put a set of 2012 wheels on my 2013 and the TPMS light came on after about 50 miles. It's stayed on ever since.

I have a 2009 and bought a set of take off steel wheels with sensors. The person I bought them from thought they were off a 2012. I mounted some new larger tires on them and they were ok for about 100km and then while driving at highway speed the TPMS light came on and flashed for a while and then stayed on. Despite correct pressure (35lbs) the light comes on everytime I use the vehicle. I dont know if I have a bad sensor or what. I thought they were compatible originally but now Im not so sure, I will probably buy a Procal module and turn off the TPMS

Tire Rack -- $33 per sensor, free shipping over $50

I ordered my 5 sensors from TireRack.com today for $33 each (plus tax in GA). You can't find the part on the site, and you have to be specific about the year and model (Rubicon, Sahara, Sport). The 2012 uses the 315mhz model. NTB charges $9.95 per tire to mount, rotate and balance. So you are about $230 for 5 tires.

Can't you reuse your '12 TPMS sensors in the '13 wheels?

No, the 13+ use a different frequency system than the older models, so they won't work.

Switching sensors to different rims should be fine. Just not to different years of Jeep.

So apparently I can't read, yes, you can swap the sensors between the wheels, just make sure to have the right year sensors to go with your Jeep.

The sensors are forward compatible (as opposed to reverse compatible), meaning the new sensors will work on older vehicles. HOWEVER, anything 2012 or older will NOT work on 2013+ due to the frequency change. The change came about when the EVIC was redesigned to display each tire pressure individually on the dash. Each sensor is a different "channel" if you will, and the new EVIC can differentiate between each one. The new computers are looking for 5 different channels, but only seeing one, so the light and *ding* you hear at startup (when using older sensors on a '13+ vehicle like I am) are basically telling the EVIC that there is a fault with the TPMS system. As soon as I swap back to my 2013 wheels, there is no *ding* at startup and the light does not illuminate.

I believe this is incorrect. It's my understanding that they are neither forwards or backwards compatible because they are different frequency sensors, meaning 13+ sensors will only work in 13+ vehicles! and same for 12 and older sensors/Jeeps.

Sorry but this is completely wrong the only change from year to year is the sensor frequency yes the display did change but that does not have an effect on sensors that they use in the tire the difference is in the vehicle it has three sensors for reading the TPMS the reason it only needs 3 as it works off proximity it has two sensors on the body up front and one on the rear I believe left side the system automatically knows the one farthest away is be right rear. Different models the same year may use different frequency sensors they do this to mix it up so this there are less likely to read each other. In the near future aftermarket TPMS sensors are all going to multi frequency meaning that With the tool you can adjust it or the frequency of the vehicle.
