TPM sensors frequently

It would seem that automotive businesses that sell tires, and batteries should do this programming since they have to consider TPM sensors frequently too correct?

How does the Tire Pressure Monitoring System work? ... Direct TPMS uses a sensor mounted in the wheel to measure air pressure in each tire. When air pressure drops 25% below the manufacturer's recommended level, the sensor transmits that information to your car's computer system and triggers your dashboard indicator light.

TPMS sensors are available in two frequencies: 315MHz and 433MHz. TPMS signals transmit at 433MHz in Europe and at 315MHz in most parts of the world. When replacing a TPMS sensor, be sure to verify it has the correct electromagnetic wave frequency for the vehicle system .

The spare tire is not equipped with a TPMS sensor, so the TPMS light on the dash comes on because it cannot get a reading from that tire. The light will stay on until you have the normal wheel replaced.

It depends on the age of the sensors. By the time the tires are worn out, the TPMS sensors may be nearing the end of their useful service life — or they may not have enough remaining battery life to last another set of tires. The lithium ion batteries inside TPMS sensors may last anywhere from five to 10 years.

The issue stems from the availability of aftermarket TPMS sensors that come as “programmable”, “universal” or “cloneable” sensor units. These sensors must be programmed with the proper protocol/application information for the vehicle before they can be installed in the tire, and then must be relearned to the vehicle.

Turn the ignition switch to ON/RUN with the engine off. 3. Press and hold the keyless-entry fob transmitter's LOCK and UNLOCK buttons, at the same time, for about five seconds to start the TPMS learn mode. The horn sounds twice indicating the TPMS receiver is ready and in learn mode.
