    ok, so yesterday, the new jeep gave my wife a low tire warning. So, I looked at it, and decided I'd top the tires up when they were cold in the morning. this morning I started the car up and it gave me the low tire warning and showed the vehicle data screen w/tire monitoring. So I started to fill the first tire, and then the hazard lights started blinking. wtf?, right? so I continued and then the horn honked and scared me because my head was right next to the damn horns. So I thought my wife was screwing with the autostart in the house. I went to the other front tire and the same thing happened, and so on. So evidently, that's a thing that it does. It let's you know when you're close to proper pressure and honks when it reaches the pressure spec. have you ever heard of that before?

        Seems like a crap load of programming, sensors and relays just to make up for looking at a tire pressure gauge

            Yes, not on a jeep though. That's a GM thing when learning tpms sensor location. Marker lights flash and horn honk for each wheel ... I always recommend 3psi above what the door shows to account for fluctuation due to weather ...

                My '15 Renegade doesn't do the horn/light thing that I know of.

                However, when the humidity dropped around the first of October, the tire pressures all dropped the next morning, from 35 to 29.

                Just last week we got a cold spell (30's in the morning) and they dropped again, from 34 to 29/30) all in the same day.

                Next time I will try it without a gauge.

                Was the ignition on?

                  yes, ignition on, engine running. I don't know if it is necessary, but I had the tpms screen visible on cluster display. I think it is called tire filling assist option, and may be accessible via the uconnect screen. I don't remember if I mentioned it, but it's a jeep Cherokee latitude plus model.

                  My 19 Ram did the same thing. Scared me too.

                  I'm really staring to despise all the gimmicky, gadget "features" they're loading the new vehicles up with. I guess you can blame it on marketing because they constantly have to convince people the new model has all sorts of improvements over the previous years. Planned obsolescence it's called. I like technology, but I think it should help you without being annoying at the same time. The manufacturers apparently don't' care so much about that last part.

                    well, after the Ford explorer/Firestone tire failures, and probably going the extra mile, so to speak, for optimizing fuel economy, the feds mandated the tire pressure monitoring. So if you have the tpms already, and you have the computers anyway, I imagine it's just a little programming to make it do that, so I don't know how much of a gimmick it is. I was certainly unaware of it, and it had no influence on my wife and I buying the car.

                    I had no idea it had that on it when i bought it also.
                    I'm still on a learning curve about everything it won't let me do, like back up with a trailer connected.

                    I understand the TPMS deal and when well implemented, they don't provide any aggravation. Although early on they caused headaches for owners of some vehicle because when you wanted to swap on a set of snow tires or even rotated tires, you'd have to reprogram them all. The blowing the horn thing is what would annoy me though.

                    And that's really what I'm talking about. I bought a used '14 Grand Cherokee last year and I'm still finding things out that I can't stand. I was trying to back up the trailer and I couldn't see so well, so I opened the door to get it just where I wanted it, but NOOOOO! If you have the door open when in gear it shifts into Park for you. Now I've since found out if I would have left my seat belt on it would have let me backup, but not knowing that at the time I had some very choice words for the marketing people who thought that feature was a good idea. But we're told it's for our own safety, so I gues we should be okay with it.

                    I had the same words going. That's funny. Then tried to go forward and found it set the parking brake. It's still training me.

                    I have a new 19' Cherokee Latitude Plus. The tires went low and all I got was the dash warning light. No other alarms or lights. But I think the lowest was 29 PSI at the dash, so It may do it if it thinks your tire is critical and don't drive on it? I have the tow package too. I do know don't go off the pressures on the dash, use a gauge when you fill it up, those tire sensors are not overly accurate, at least mine are not.

                    My wife's 17 Pathfinder does the same thing. Handy if you don't have a tire gauge I guess.

                    my tire pressure was like 30psi vs 36psi factory spec. It just gave me the "universal" tire symbol on the cluster. The horn only honked when it reached 36psi while filling the tires. It's a little hard to say when the hazards started flashing, but I would guess it was when I was within a lb or two of spec.
                    The dash display agreed with my tire gauge within a 1/2 lb or so.

                      I have a 2011 dakota big horn with the low pressure light would come and go, technician at a Goodyear dealership said it was pressure sensor bad on drivers front, when i ask about replacing it, he said $85 for valve stem and $35 to program it, i told him just to put in regular valve stem , that the light had been on for 3 years, he claimed it was now against the law to remove them and insisted i buy his, told him to put tire back on truck, I went to a mom and pops used tire store, had all the pressure reading valve stems removed and regular valve stems put in for $30, i have driven 45 years , i know what a low tire fells like, and even if i ruin a tire running it low, i can replace the tire for less than what they wanted to put a pressure sensor on. Also if i run the tires at a pressure to keep light off, the tires wear out in the middle with plenty of tread on the sides left, its just another gimmick to stay in your pocketbook.

                        New cars suck. I will keep my old junk. I can fix that easier and cheaper, and do it myself.

                          New York made it against the law to replace them with regular valve stems and they are talking about adding them to the NY State Inspection so if you have had them removed you will have to replace them to have your car or truck pass inspection which is sure to put a denmt in your pocketbook.

                            I miss when vehicles were built with an emphasis on actual function. We've wen't from stylists and engineers designing vehicles to them being designed by computer technicians. The vehicle has merely become a wrapper for all the electronic gadgetry that serves no other purpose but to speed up obsoleting it faster. Toyota and I'm sure others now offer seven year supplemental warranties on electronics and software installed in new vehicles. That tells me the planned lifespan of a lot of hardware that once something happens to it after that, it's over. Parts no longer supported or carried by anyone. Computers and other crap bar coded and programmed to that specific VIN. All for vehicles that are geared for people that would rather be glued to some form of digital device than oh, I don't know, maybe driving?

                              I agree. Fuck new cars and trucks!!@. Wife said to me, when you retire in another 11 years, you should buy a brand new pickup. I told her nope my 1994 Silverado will get a new crate motor, paint job refresh, and some other stuff I always wanted to do to it. I will then drive it till I die. Again I will reiterate, Fuck new cars and trucks!!!

                                I wonder if in 40 or 50 years you will find owners of 2019 Hell Cats saying the same thing about the 2069 models?
