Question Tire pressure sensors are confused again !!

Howdy,

So I had the Rapid Response thing done the first tire rotation since the system would not adjust for the new tire locations. The dealer replaced all six tire sensors and they were reading correct when I got it back.

I rotated the tires again last week and still no luck after driving over 100 miles with it. The new location of the tires is not happening. The pressures are correct, but not the locations on the display. My inner rear tires, which are now my front tires display 80psi at the inner rears, not the new front locations. And so on with all others.

I asked the dealer and they said it should fix itself by driving a few miles. I called Ram customer service and they said the same. After driving a hundred miles, I figure something is wrong since they are still reading the wrong locations. Am I the only person having this problem? Any ideas as to how I can get them to accept the new tire locations? Very frustrating…

Thanks,
Bill T.

Ok so for the 2011 dodge 2500 the dealer told me that if you drive for 20 min or more above 25 km/h, then it takes 20 min after that for it to re-determine and if the display still does not show the proper tires they have to manually reprogram.

This seems like a common glitch actually spanning makes and models. software or hardware design flaw maybe?

I called and scheduled an appointment with the dealer for next Tuesday morning. I'm hoping there is a fix for this since it makes rotating the tires a PITA. My buddy has a 2015 dually and his relocates in just a few minutes after start up.

That's what I was hoping for. The Ram customer service folks put me on hold for quite a while and claimed they asked an engineer. The claim is that it's supposed to happen automatically, no procedure. Hopefully it's something I can get fixed.

The visit to the dealer was much what I expected. They connected the magic programmer, hit the “learn” button and all is well again, at least for them. I asked if they found anything that was preventing the re-learn. The answer was, no codes, nothing broke, no problems there to fix.

So I called Ram customer service again to discuss the findings, or lack thereof. Since they “fixed” the problem for now, they couldn’t open a file for their “star” folks to check into, problem no longer exists. They did enter into my records the plan to resolve for the next rotation though. The plan is, when I rotate the tires again this fall and it doesn’t re-learn. Call them first to notify, then take to the dealer to have their “Star” folks address it. Somewhat exasperating, but hopefully it can be remedied…
