Low Tire Indicator Light Constantly On....

I am sure this topic has been covered before....

I have a 2010 Wrangler with 33's, 4" lift, and 17" wheels... I just purchased the vehicle last weekend!

The vehicles low tire indicator light (on the dash) is constantly on and I am assuming this is because of the change to the 33's....

So here are a few questions:

1. Is there a way I can disable the tire monitor system thus making the light on the dash turn off?

or,

2. Do I have to purchase the monitors and install them on the tires to make them work? They are approximately $70.00 each....

Thanks in advance...

You can get an AEV Procal and gives you the ability to turn it off as well as recalibrate the speedo for the larger tires.

X2

It costs $150 or so, but you can use it for as long as you have the vehicle.

If you have the TPMS in the tires get the Procal, if not, you can get a set on ebay for around 125. And... you'll still nedd the procal.

Another vote for the Procal. Read about it below...it'll do a lot of other handy things besides relieving you of the burden of TPMS warning lights. Anybody who's gonna mod their Jeep should get something similar, IMO.

Awesome!!! So, as I understand it if I purchase this ProCal module I will NOT need to purchase the 4 monitors for the wheels and be able to disable the dash indicator light?

Thanks for ALL the assistance guys......

Exactly.

Plus the Procal will recalibrate your speedo if you change tire sizes, adjust shift points if you regear, set daytime running lights, center your steering if you add a lift, set engine idle higher for using a winch, etc.

Awesome little critter.

you might just have a bad sensor.....i never changed my stock tires on my Rubi and my indicator light kept coming on and staying on....sometimes they will reset themselves....and i took it to the dealer and they said it was bad and they replaced it.
just a thought....don't know how to check and see if its bad though. Good luck.
