    Default WK TPMS sensors

    Just want to find out if the tyre pressure monitoring sensors can be replaced by non Jeep sensors. The front left intermittently started to show dashes but now it shows dashes permanently. The Jeep is a 2010 model.

    Not so far as I know.

    You can order them online for not a huge price (might as well order 4). Just check exactly which frequency you have. there is a difference between WH export models and WK USA models. Also the Wrangler ones will not work.

    Try this first. Deflate that tyre a lot and then re-inflate. Worked on mine and has been working for almost 2 years since.

    As he said....make sure correct frequency if buying non OEM sensors. One ( don’t know which one ) has packed up on my Wrangler and looked into buying a set from agents....crazy price for new set...must include one for spare tyre.

    Local online prices are just as crazy, so went and checked out Amazon...much better prices, but decided to do without as I regularly check tyre pressures with a gauge.

    If you can ignore the stupid chime every time you switch on ignition, and really want on board tyre pressure display, then fit after market TPMS which cost about the same for an entire system as one OEM Jeep sensor. Most bigger tyre dealers sell TPMS units.

    Thanks for the info. Will try the deflate and inflate and see what happens.

    I ordered a cheap one from a Chinese seller on eBay. It's been in for about a year now, no issues.

    The export Grand Cherokees all have 433MHz sensors, whereas the American ones had 315MHz sensors from 2005-2007, and 433MHz from 2008 onwards. Just be sure you order a 433MHz sensor.

    Part number for my original sensor was 56029398AB, my replacement is 56029481AB.

    Not sure about the 2008 GC and newer ones. But on my 2007 GC the ones from a 2012 Wrangler did not work.

    As previous Poster said.....frequency was changed.
    To check which frequency yours uses, go to agents with you vin number and they will give you part number for your TPMS, if they have one in stock look, without buying, at the back of the sensor....the frequency Hz is molded into the unit.

    Probably is a shot battery.....but not easy to replace ( impossible? ) as unit is glued together with “gorilla snot”.

    Yes - the ebay link provided was for the Wrangler and much newer GC (2011+) that also use 433.

    My export 2007 WH GC should then work with wrangler 433mhz, but it didn't. They physically look different too. So i'm just advising caution.

    EDIT: OK I see that from 07-12 Wranglers worked on 315mhz, and then 433 from 2013 onwards. Which explains why they didn't work for me.

    Want to get really confused....

    Download Schrader catalog and see just how many different part numbers there are for OE sensors that there are just for Jeeps

    In the end I just decided best was to take one out of my spare wheel and note down part number....also Amazon have good prices to RSA and personally prefer their delivery service to folks in the East.

    Just some feedback, today I rotated the tires on my Jeep and took it for a ride round the block. The defect is still on the same tire (left front) so after studying the workshop manual I found that it could be the left front transponder which is located inside the wheel arch. There are 3 transponders, 2 front and 1 in the right rear arch. Will investigate tomorrow.

    I swapped the two front transponders, but the defect persist on the left front. Next thing is the wireless control module or SKREEM as they also call it. But for this I will need to take it to the agents.

    My Wrangler's started flashing which most cases (as per the web wheeler's) is the sensor batter that is flat, if that is correct it means they will start dying one after the other.

    One Jeep dealers quoted me R2790 and a other R2110 per sensor

    I used my Procal and just disabled the TPMS system, done and dusted.

    Can the tire pressure sensor be disabled in the computer of a 2006 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo 4.7l 65 year anniversary model?

    What do these sensors look like?

    I replace batteries in the BMW bike sensors quite regularly. Would be interested to see whether these could be done too.
