I started up my Jeep the other day after sitting for 6 months while I was out of town. I now have a TPMS sensor failure. Front right tire reading was stuck, now showing a -- , along with the TPMS error light. Tire pressures are all good. Trying to do a TPMS reset and can't find the reset button that is supposed to be located under the steering wheel on the right side. I also tried removing the battery and turning the key on for a few seconds to do a full system reset, TPMS light still on. I removed the plastic trim from under the Steering wheel and don't see anything that looks like a reset button. Can someone please tell me exactly where it is? Or some insight on this? Thanks...

There is no reset button.

It’s very possible that the battery in the right front tpms valve stem has died. You can rotate you tires or swap the front for the spare and see if the bad one follows on the dash. Simple and easy to do.

This is very far fetched, but you can try dropping the tire pressure in said tire. Drive around and see if it will wake up that particular tpms.

No reset button try airing up to door jamb recommended pressure then drive for a few miles if the sensor is working it will show the pressure and reset the fault. You don't say how old the sensors are or if you checked the tire pressure but if sensor more than 5 years old then pretty fair chance battery is dead and sensor's need to be replaced.

Your battery more than likely has died within the sensor. Quickest way to find out go to a tire shop that has the tool to scan your sensors that also give readout on screen of pressures. Discount Tire uses the bartec pro which is the most advanced tpms scanner there is.

All good info. Thanks. The Jeep is a 2013. When I bought it used it still had the original tires on it, so I would say the TPMS sensors are 7 years old. Where I bought and mounted my tires has a free for life tire rotation service. I'm almost due for a rotate. I usually rotate them myself, but I will just bring the Jeep to them for a free rotate and a TPMS sensor replacement.

Just a thought you can buy the sensors on line[ stick with name brand] for about 1/4 the price the shop will charge then pay the shop [Discount tire] A small fee to install while they do the rotation. The new sensors are self programming and should reset after a few miles.

Replace all of them, including the spare. If one is dead, its only a matter of time before they all go. Amazon has good pricing on 5 packs.

The “reset” button is the scan tool that any tire shop would have.

What lead me to believe there was a reset button...

google search...
How do you reset the TPMS on a Jeep Wrangler?

and you will get several hits like this....
Locate the TPMS reset button under the steering wheel and press in, holding until the tire pressure light blinks three times. Start the car and wait 20 minutes for the sensor to refresh. Inflate all tires to 3 PSI over their recommended amount, then deflate them completely.Feb 24, 2019

:pc-ouch:

Anyway I let the tire shop replace the one sensor for 50$ The Jeep dealer wanted $150. Jeep reset itself on the way home, all is noe working well. Thanks for all the good advice...
