Decided not to get my tire pressure sensors replaced. Too expensive.

    Dealer wanted about $700, America’s tire wanted about $250. I just disabled my system for now. But good to know there’s a cheaper option when I get new tires.

    I have two sets of tires/wheels that I swap out. One has TPMS and the other doesn't. As much as TPMS might help folks who don't regularly check their tire pressures, they are a nuisance. I have to remind my local tire store each time they replace or mount my wheels and tires that in my state, TPMS is only required on initial sale of the vehicle when new and are not subject to any legal requirement to be installed or operational (it's been that way since my first vehicle with TPMS - my 2008 FJ). FFS, check your pressures regularly and just ignore the light if you don't want to pay money for a worthless feel-good option.

    BTW - Disabling the TPMS system is actually illegal, but ignoring the TPMS and having a fault lit up is not...go figure.

    Dealers are out of their minds. I don't have anything done by them except factory recalls.

    Tire guy told me one of the batteries was going dead in one of my sensors when installing my snow tires. Glad I found this thread before I went to the dealer.

    TPMS batteries in my '06 lasted me 14 years. We recently sold a Sienna that was 16 years old and the TPMS batteries were still going strong.
