Another recall has been issued for defective Tire Pressure Monitoring Systems (TMPS).

Chrysler is recalling about 10,400 cars for a software error that keeps the TMPS from learning the locations of the individual sensors while the vehicle is being driven.

As a result, the low tire pressure warning light will illuminate, despite the tire pressure being within specification. Should one of the tires lose air pressure, the driver would not be notified of the change.

The recall affects about 10,400 certain model year 2014 Chrysler Town and Country, Dodge Grand Caravan and Jeep Wrangler vehicles.

Chrysler has started notifying owners of the affected cars and dealers will reprogram the TMPS software free of charge.

For more information, owners can contact Chrysler customer service at (800) 853-1403. Chrysler's number for this recall is P63.
