Lives matter in the case of a very poor design!!!. This is the second valve on this van that I have had a problem with. I asked that he show me what he saw and shared with frank that our mechanic warned and documented two front stems bad. There is no formal retraining procedure necessary. To ChryslerCares, I've searched without success for technical information you are privy to. Way too many problems with this noted on various internet sites.
The contact mentioned that the failure progressed. This will prevent moisture and dirt from entering the valve stem, which could damage the tire pressure sensor. Figure 4: Removing and installing the tire pressure sensor. The tool should remain in place for approximately five seconds, until the horn sounds. This was the second time in two weeks that the sensor had alerted me to a low pressure situation with this tire. Thank you very much for the details. This is normal unless the indicator is flashing.
Make sure the surface of the wheel is not damaged. I'll assume it's due to my low post count. It will turn off after a period of driving at a sufficient speed, usually 1-20 minutes at speeds more than 15-20 mph. Thank goodness I was on a ramp and not 79 s at a much higher speed. This may support a warranty claim but will also ensure that the dealer or tire shop is covered for liability claims. Under this condition, the sensor may still function; however, the condition should be corrected immediately. Inflate all tires to correct pressure specification as indicated on the Vehicle Tire Placard.
If aftermarket wheels are installed, and therefore do not contain tire pressure sensors, the system will not function properly and the driver will be continuously notified of a system malfunction. The learning sequence will initiate when the vehicle has been stopped for more than 20 minutes. This is defined as the tire pressure after a vehicle has not been driven for more than 3 hours and in outside ambient temperature. Make sure the original style valve stem cap is securely installed to keep moisture out of the sensor. While the tire maintained air pressure after the valve stem failed, I was unable to check the tire pressure or add air to the tire. The light will remain on until tire pressure is properly set.

If new sensors are introduced to the vehicle, the data stored for the sensor being replaced will be deleted. I took the vehicle to my independent mechanic who discovered a leaking tire valve due to corrosion. Chrysler will not fix this part as part of the extended warranty. Install the wheel and tire assembly on the vehicle. If a sensor cannot be trained, see appropriate manufacturer service information.
I can not believe that they are failing in this short of time and has not had a recall. Upon paying for front brakes, machining of front rotors and rotating tires my mechanic indicated on my invoice that both front vave stems bad. I feel that micks Dodge is at fault for not being prepared to correct the problem for which it was scheduled in their maintenance dept. The learning sequence will initiate when the vehicle has been stopped for more than 20 minutes. They said they see this commonly with these tire pressure sensor guages that chrystler uses.
The failure mileage was 27,851. I can not even find a certified third party tire repair shop that will fix the flat tire because if they fix it the safe way by using the trusted rubber stem it violates the federal mandated safety devise, which is illegal and they do not want the liability. The tire pressure will also increase as the vehicle is driven, this is normal and there should be no adjustment for this increased pressure. Drive the vehicle faster than 15 mph for at least 20 minutes. Repeat procedure for the remaining sensors in this sequence: right front, right rear, left front and spare. Took car to micks odge Chrysler in robinson twp.
Fill the tire with air, or deflate the tire by pressing on the valve with your fingernail until the correct tire pressure has been reached. The relearning process will also be required in the event of wheel rotation. Install the original valve stem cap. Place activation tool on the left front tire valve stem. See appropriate manufacturer service information.
If anyone knows of a recall, please let me know. The approximate failure mileage was 62,000. The cheap solution is to replace the expensive Chrysler valve stems with standard tire valve stems. While removing the nut, hold pressure against the rear of the metal valve stem to keep the valve stem from pushing rearward, which could damage the antenna strap see Figure. If a sensor cannot be trained, see appropriate manufacturer service information. After calling for road side service, I was informed this is a current problem as the material used is die-cast pot metal which is very corrosive to the elements.
