Tire Pressure Sensors


Recommended Posts

The OEM tire pressure sensors on my Ram truck are rated for 7-10 years and 100,000 miles.  I had one fail at about 5 years and 50,000 miles.

What did it cost to replace the sensor? I pay less than $10 to replace the 10 batteries in my TST sensors each year...

The sensors need to be replaced when they die.  As I remember the dealer charge was about $70 plus labor which is zero when also replacing tires.  So it seems the cost/year is about the same.

Assuming the sensor dies when you need tires.  Is that likely?

Or are you proposing that you should just change sensors at every tire change, as a preventative measure?  Hmmm.... you might be on to something.

I had sensors on our 5er until one day I had a sudden failure and the the debris of the middle tire took out the other two sensors/valve stem and so I had three ruined tires.  I upgraded tires and now run no senors outside the rims.

Did you misunderstand the pricing I posted? Put another way, I pay a bit less than $1 per year per sensor for replacement batteries, or less than $10 TOTAL/year for my 10 sensors.
