Hi. Has anyone replaced their stock wheels with aftermarkets with no air sensors? How does this affect the system, if at all? I understand that buying the 4 sensor kits (tirerack.com) will cost upwards of $240 plus.
OK Now you've answered part of my question !! 1st off it seems rather pricy to install the wheel air sensors on said Winter Rims. Is there 17" Winter Rims available ?? Is there not a Fuse somewhere inline with the 4 sensors ?? Could you not just remove it for the Winter Months ?? :roll:
8) Thanks for the Comeback Flipper !! I figured no harm would be done with Sensorless Rims. I'll do a little digging around, trying to skirt around one issue just leads to another with the Dash Indicator Sensor on Constant. Thanks Again
One thing that you should be aware of if you're buying a second set of sensors - apparently (as per my dealer) they have to be programmed to your Compass EVERY time that you change the tires. So when you put on the winter tires they have to Scan/Program all 4 sensors and then when you put the summer tires back on they have to reprogram them again as the Compass can only remember 4 sensors (1 per wheel) at a time.
Something to think about as there may be a charge Every time to reprogram them $$$ :!:
The new TPMS sensors do have to be programmed to the vehicle, it usually costs about an hour of labor to do, and can only be done by a C-D-J dealer, or a tire store with the proper equipment. No harm will be done to the TPMS system by driving around with no sensors. The light will be annoying though.
