Jeep Liberty TPMS & TST Compatability Question

I need help with this one.....

I just purchased a 2011 Jeep Liberty 4X4 to use a a toad and learned it has a factory installed tire pressure monitoring system (TPMS).

When I was at the IRV2 rally this past fall in Sevierville I purchased from TST their system for my coach. As you are probably aware their system is expandable to include your toad.

So my question is.......if I install the TST sensors on my toad will they work properly with the Jeep factory TPMS?

Thanks,

The Jeep sensors are built into the base of the valve stems. I'm not familiar with the TST system (we have the SmarTire system). Where do you install those? I expect you can probably install the TST sensors and both systems will work at the same time (independent of each other). But I would not expect the TST sensors to work with (ie replace) the Jeep system.

Wouldn't it great if your Jeep sensors would communicate with outside TPMSs? Unfortunately, they do not. Go ahead and add your TST sensors - they will be read by the TST system, the Jeep's will be read by the vehicle computer.

FlyingDriver & luvlabs..........Thanks for the quick responses.

The TST sensors screw onto your toad/coach valve stems and send their signals to the monitor inside the coach.

Like you I assume the factory and TST systems will work independently of the other but I'm curious if the factory system will interfere in any way with the TST systems ability to detect a loss of pressure or tire temperature for example.

I should contact TST and see what they say.

No, vehicle OEM systems don't integrate with 3rd party systems such as TST.

Just a word of caution. If you take your Jeep to the car wash that "drags" your car through the wash system, take off your TST or similar sensors. The sensors can get caught in the system, break off the stem and result in a flat tire. Oh, the replacement valve stem with pressure monitor will set you back about $115 and then someone will charge you to break the tire down to reinstall the valve stem. This can turn an $8 car wash into $150 car wash. Also hope you are lucky enough that someone will go back into the car wash and find the sensor or you can add another $50 to the car wash price. Don't ask, I just know.

phays......Pete

Thanks for the tip

I would have not given this any thought and would have learned a very expensive lesson.

I owe you a beer
