problem #5

Jan 242019

124 Spider

  • 7,000 miles
TPMS sounds warning alarm and light when driving - although tire pressures are fine. This has happened many times in the nearly 2 years of ownership and been to the dealer 3 times for attempted repairs. The audible alarm is also so loud it scares me when it goes off - and is not adjustable. This is not safe when I am driving, particularly in traffic. I don't want to feel that I have to stop on the roadside and check the tires when the system is giving me a false positive. Dealer has no answers. Said to just hit the reset button. The system is worthless - it's like the boy that cries wolf -- it goes off but you start to ignore it because it's never right. Chrysler/Fiat needs to remedy this.

The vehicle's alarm (horn and flashers) periodically goes off while driving. It will sometimes stop on its own, but typically requires that the car is shut off to stop the alarm. The event does not happen with any consistency and will sometimes happen two or three times in a day, but sometimes will not happen for two or three weeks. It has happened when driving on both the freeway and city roads. When taken to the dealership, they say that the problem cannot be duplicated, no codes were present to explain the occurrence, and the problem continues to go unresolved.
