Recall Alert: TPMS warning light

Chrysler recalls SUVs for faulty TPMS warning lights


WASHINGTON (Dec. 4, 2014) — Chrysler Group L.L.C. is recalling 10,390 SUVs for tire pressure monitoring system (TPMS) warning lights that may illuminate even when the vehicles’ tires are within specifications for inflation.

The vehicles are all from model year 2014, according to the Dec. 2 recall acknowledgment letter the National Highway Traffic Administration (NHTSA) sent to Chrysler.

They include Chrysler Town and Country and Dodge Grand Caravan vehicles manufactured between March 20 and April 22, 2014, and Jeep Grand Wrangler vehicles manufactured between March 21 and April 22, 2014.

Chrysler first reported the problem to NHTSA on October 7, according to NHTSA. Because of a software error, the TPMS on those vehicles may fail to locate the individual sensors while on the road.

In this case, the TPMS warning light will illuminate, even though the tires are within the TPMS inflation specifications, Chrysler told NHTSA. If a tire actually lost pressure, the driver would not know the difference, Chrysler said.

Chrysler is replacing the TPMS modules in these vehicles free of charge and began notifying owners Nov. 28, NHTSA said. Owners may call Chrysler’s customer service line at 800-853-1403. Chrysler’s number for this recall is P63.

Dodge Nitro: Tire pressure monitor system (TPMS)

It says in the manual that this can be displayed as PSI or Bar. Mine is in bar which means little to me so can any of your kind folk let me know how to change display from Bar to PSI?

Hi Thanks for reply.
Mine has that type of display and shows the pressure for each of the 4 tyres, but in Bar and not PSI.

I have the paper U. S. Nitro Owners Manual for my vehicle (not the CD) that starts to explain the EVIC system on page 177.

As you know there are many personal custom settings that can be set.

In Section 5 (page 289) I see that BAR can be selected. I'm with you? BAR

You do have buttons on your steering wheel to select these reading, right?

If so Press and release the MENU button and the mode display will change between functions including Personal.

Press the SCROLL button and change the TPMS reading to PSI.

Hope this helps.

Yes but if you go to Personal Settings you can change many things by using the buttons on the left side of the steering wheel (I think). Just play around with them and I'm sure you will figure it out.

Don't have time now but if not, let me know and I will go my Nitro and play with it and explain what to do. Kind of like working with computers, I just keep playing with setting till I get the results I want, but hard to explain the steps. Good Luck

PS I think you must have your vehicle running.

Other Personal Settings Programmable:

Lock Doors Automatically @ 15 MPH

When ON is selected, all doors will lock automatically'


To make selection, press and release the FUNCTION SELECTION until "ON" or "OFF" appears.

Unlock Doors Automatically on Exit

Remote Key Unlock -Drivers Door or All doors

Sound Horn with Remote Key Lock

Flash Lights with Remote Key Lock

Delay Turning Headlamps Off -30-60-90

Turn Headlamps On with Remote Key Unlock

Delay Power Off to Accessories Until Exit

Display Units of Measures in English or Metric

More if UConnect/ GPS

Thanks again for your help but tried all of that and no option to change units for tyre pressure, even with engine running.

Did a search of other Forums and found this LINK

Yup... Thats all it takes. If you toggle thru the evic menu's you'll get to your setting of either "metric" or "US". Push the right arrow on the steering wheel to toggle between the 2. Once in US hit the menu button on the left side of the wheel to get to your wheel pressure menu and it'll be in PSI.
However:

I'm not so sure it's as simple as that because if we select metric it changes it to Kilopascals (kPa). I have a feeling it may require a country code change to get it to display in BAR. I'm sure a dealer would be able to determine that.
No follow up is shown.

So you are not the only one and if everything else fails maybe your Dealership will have to reprogram the computer? Again Good Luck.
