2014 Jeep Compass Latitude low tire pressure light problem
Hello ladies and gentlemen! This is going to be a long story, so I apologize in advance. We traded our 2010 Jeep Patriot for the Compass in May 2017. Hubby ran over a board on Tuesday and the left front tire started leaking air. So since we bought the extended tire warranty, he took it to the dealer to repair the tire. The dealer patched the tire and put it back on. We were good until Wednesday morning when the low tire light came on. Hubby had me call a tow truck to come and put the spare tire on (he has arthritis and bad knees and can't change a tire). He started driving the car and the low tire light came on again - in fact, the dash light says that there is only 3 pounds of air in the tire, although my hubby checked the spare with a tire gauge and it was at the proper weight. I had called the dealership and told them about the leaking tire that they had supposedly fixed and they offered to replace the repaired tire with a new tire, and I am going to the dealership tomorrow to get the new tire put on.
The low tire light on the dash really bothers me. What could cause this - a problem with the sensors on the tires or something in the dash? We bought the extended warranty when we bought the car, although there is a $100 deductible, so if it's something the dealership is going to have to fix, it's going to have to wait until I get paid. Our horn doesn't work either, so they will have to fix that too. Maybe it's related?
Does anyone have any ideas? Thanks for your ideas and/or suggestions!
