Default Low life?

Today I turned on my truck and saw that it said low life. I don't have the fancy EVIC and was wondering if anyone could tell me what low life means on the rams.

No. It's just not on. But where the mileage is it pops up "low tire" when I turn on the truck. I checked the tire pressure and all is good unless it maybe the spare.

Theres no tire pressure monitor in the spare, so that wouldn't be the problem

My owners manual say there IS a sensor in the spare (if it is the full size spare), but it will only give a reading if it is installed in one of the front or rear tire positions, not when it is in the spare tire location.

So, the spare isn't the issue, but it may very well have a senosr if you have the full size spare & wheel option.

Straight from my owners manual:
The matching full size spare wheel and tire assembly (if
equipped) has a TPM sensor. The matching full size spare
can be used in place of any of the four road tires. The
TPMS will only monitor the pressure in the full size spare
when it is used in place of a road tire. Otherwise, a spare
with a pressure below the low-pressure limit will not
cause the TPM Telltale Light to illuminate or the chime to

sound.
