TPMS reset manually??

I have a Tahoe and when I rotate my tires I can simply deflate one tire at a time and get the horn to sound when it is reset so I don't need to go to a tire dealer to reset the sensors. Its free and easy.

Can I do this with a 2013 Jeep Wrangler? I see guys say to buy a AEV procal and someday I might but its not first on the list. Is there a cheep manual way to reset the TPMS? Thanks

If you have a low tire you just fill the tire to about 35psi and the light goes off after about 10 minutes of driving. The low pressure trigger is around 29-30 psi. You don't need to buy anything (assuming you have sensors)

Today I swapped my stock 16" tires and wheels for a set of 17" take offs from another JK. Didn't have to reset anything. Drove 30 miles and no TPMS alarm. Piece of cake.

My understanding is that they will handle themselves after doing a rotation on the JK. I haven't tested it, but when I do the tire rotation I will. I'm familiar with the tire deflation method, that's how my CTS-V was done.

I tested this out. My sensors went off at about 29-30 psi. I had to fill it to exactly 35 PSI (which it actually told me on the Evic system). Once I did that, the sensor went away. I then deflated it back to 32 PSI where I run them and no problems. Since then, I did get a Procal because I deflate the tires when off-roading to about 18 PSI and didn't want to see the sensor go off anymore, plus after putting on new bigger tires, I needed the Procal to reset my MPH as well.

Guys, the OP is not talking about the tire pressure itself, but the newer 2013 and up setup that shows which tire has which pressure in it. To make the system work, it has to know which sensor is at which position. On several GM cars, there's a relearn like was described where you start at the RF and work around counter clockwise ending up at the LF that involved letting air out until the horn honks. The JK does not seem to have any similar procedure, but I have read in multiple places it picks up the sensor from a wheel well mounted pickup so it relates on the fly. Haven't had a test to fully vet that yet and confirm it.
