TPMS issues

This may be a simple question to you Jeep enthusiasts, but as a first time Jeep owner I'm confused. I replaced the factory 16' inch rims and tires with a set of factory 17 inch rims and tires. The TPMS has been on ever since. Where is the TPMS located on the rim and can I move it from the old to the new? Thanks

It's part of the valve stem. Unfortunately it's on the inside.

You can move the sensors from wheel to wheel but you would still need the original set to do this. Do you still have them? Discount tire or the like can do this for you. Did the new set not come with them?

I think '08 amd '09 uses the same sensor. 2010, '11, ,'12 use a different sensor. So if TPMS worked prior and you had them moved over and aired up properly, the TPMS light should stay off. If the new wheels did'nt have TPMS or it's a different year (like 2010 putting tpms tires/wheels on an '08), your alarm is going to go off. Look at the valve stems on the old set of rims and new installed set.

You can't tell just by looking at the outside valve stems. When you switch them, it can take quite a while for the system to reset. If you don't have them, the light will blink for 75 seconds, then stay on. If they are installed but not recognized, you will just get the low air warning.

Also keep in mind that the TPMS is looking for the PSI that is on your door sticker, regardless of what tires you have. If you want a different PSI, you will need a programmer.

I know my local Discount Tire is charging me $7.50 per tire to switch over the TPMS when my new wheels come in this week.
