|Xena1||I tried to change 2012 wheels to our new 2013. No luck as sensors have different frequency. Bought another AEV Procal to set pressure to -0- and shut off chimes and light. Driving since 1967 so don't need Obozo government telling me tires are low on air! Screw Washington DC!|

An FYI...my story
I have a 2010 Sport...last Wednesday, I came outta work to find the passenger rear tire flat and the sensor gone (it was inside the tire)...took it to my tire guy to put a regular tire stem on the rim so I had a spare again...he said here in up, up, upstate N.Y., the snow and heavy salt corrodes the threads on the sensor stem (and they were almost gone, visibly)...scary if I was cruising at 75 mph on the interstate and that happened...
Before winter comes, I will pull the remaining sensors and install standard stems...and ProCal the ECU to zero pressure...then check my tire pressure on a regular basis, like I have the last 44 years of driving...
Just something to think about if you drive in the snow.....

|Zombie4x4||they use short range RF to communicate to the vehicle, the recievers are located at the wheel hub where on there they are placed exactly i forget but that is where all vehicles have them for similar TPMS so like daggo66 said it reads your spare when in use but not while its on the back because frankly that would be useless why do i care if my spare is flat is its not being used i can visually see it it had no air in it.|

A tire pressure monitoring sensor is located in the spareTelltale Light” to illuminate or the chime to sound.
wheel if the vehicle is equipped with a matching full size
spare wheel and tire assembly. The matching full size spare
tire can be used in place of any of the four road tires. A low
spare tire will not cause the “Tire Pressure Monitoring

Local dealer told me it reads the spare
Not doubting you be we could go back and forth unless we get a confirmation
Of the facts

I left off the sensors when I got new wheels and just programmed it to 0
With the Pro Cal
Wasn't worth the hassle
No lights anytime even when I air down

Procal and TPMS
I bought the 2012 Procal primarily for the TPMS settings. When I installed 35 inch Nitto M/T I initially had to run 35 psi to keep the TPMS happy. It road really rough at 35 psi. Then I got the Procal and set the low pressure alarm to 28 psi and I run 30 psi which is much nicer. Right now 30 psi seems to be okay with the TPMS.

|razdds2||How on earth do your duratracs say that max psi is 35 cold. mine say 80 psi cold...and DTD sent them to me at 70 psi!!!!|

|Barmanvarn||I opted to just not get sensors on my new tires.... just bought the procal and will set the min PSI to 0.|

|Vulcan Classic||Looks like I may have the wrong sensors installed...according to my invoice the part # is 56029359AA; this is not the match for a 2012 Wrangler; I believe it should be a 56029479AB or 56029465AC|

|goofygrin||You can use the procal to recalibrate your tire size as well (odo, speedo and trans shift points for auto are all affected).|

|Vulcan Classic||Apparently bad sensor then, that is exactly what its doing. Does anyone know what the proper sensor is for 2012 models? I ordered the sensors pre-installed with my new tires and wheels from DTD, supposedly Mopar OEM sensors with 433MHZ specs. Is this the proper sensor? I read some Chrysler vehicles use a 315MHZ sensor. The light did not come on until about 8 days after I swapped my wheels/tires. It seemed to initially come on when the weather first changed here in NC and haven't been able to get it to clear since. I was running the 33's at 32-33 PSI at the time.|

|rics1997||The 28-30psi is for the most part right for true 33X12.5X15 tires. That is because they are class C tires in most cases. The Metric LT truck tires should be set to 35psi for most tires in that class. The tires are not the same. On LT tire lowering the PSI to 30 PSI might give a better ride but not better MPG or tire life|

OK I got my ProCal today and was able to disable the TPMS by setting the low threshold to 0 PSI. This cleared the light from coming on. However, when I tried to set an alternate setting, the light came back on, so I'm assuming I have a bad sensor somewhere. I will eventually rotate in the spare at my first rotation and test drive to try and figure out if I got a bad sensor or sensors.
Ideally, I'd like to keep the TPMS feature enabled at a lower running pressure for my 33's at 28-30 PSI with the low threshold around 24 PSI. But at least the annoying light is off for now.
I also re-calibrated my tire size to 32.75" to correct the speedometer and odometer.

Even if it won't fix your TPMS problem (which would surprise me), it does a # of other things that can be helpful in setting up your Jeep.
Let us know if it fixes the sensor issue, though...I've done some digging, on and off, since my last post in this thread, and have yet to find an instance where the Procal didn't solve whatever problem someone was having with TPMS.
|11-22-2011 08:08 PM|
|Vulcan Classic||I just ordered the ProCal, we'll see what happens!|
|11-22-2011 07:56 PM|
|ztrain9||Get the pro cal and u can set what psi u want,that way u can air up or down whenever without annoying light. Plus this unit is pretty cool,reset gearing,speedo lots of stuff, you set up unit and turn key on,plug in pro cal horn beeps turn key off pullout pro cal and your done.awesome product for the price.|
|11-22-2011 07:17 PM|
Setting them for a low threshold SHOULD work, though I suppose a sensor could malfunction and give a bad reading regardless of what it was set for. They do have microprocessors in them.
Maybe somebody'll chime in who's had one go wacky on them.
|11-22-2011 07:11 PM|
They are supposedly OEM Mopar sensors rated at 433Mhz, self-learning so they should sync to the computer, but after four days I assume SUM TING WONG!
Again , I ask, if I buy the ProCal will it clear the chime/light even if I have a bad sensor, though I'm not sure at this point. Ideally, I'd like to set it for 24-25 PSI low threshold, and run my 33x12.5-15's at 28-30PSI and still utilize the TPMS.
