I had the tires checked and they said nothing was wrong with them but the low tire light stays on. I want to know what is wrong. Thanks

    On Lexus and Toyota's you need to also check the spare wheel pressure if the light comes on. IS the tire pressure reset procedure in your owner's manual? Check here http://repairpal.com/automobile-owners-manuals-online or try this link you may be able to down load a free copy of the owner's manual for your vehicle http://www.autousermanual.com/
    Each sensor at the wheel has a battery in it perhaps one of the sensors has failed but a scan tool would be required to determine where the true fault is.

    I have not checked the spare tire. I just bought the car in May this yr. I had to buy a 3yr warranty seperately which cost me a ton of money I do not have, but you still have to pay the diagnostic fee to get it read. Right now I do not have the money to do that and be able to pay all my bills. It cost me 18 just to have them check all the tires. They said some of them were either to high above what its suppose to be or a tiny bit lower then the pressure needs to be, but there was no signs of holes or nails or anything. I look at them and they look ok, so it must be the sensor. Is it normal for a sensor to go bad on a brand new jeep?

    it could be 1 sensor is bad . but you can remove ground cable from battery for a few minutes to see if it resets.

    i just had 1 replaced , about 30 bucks
