Is tpms sensor needed when replacing tires?

When installing new winter rims and tires on my 2007 Honda Odyssey, do I need to put in the TPMS sensors for the vehicle to work, or can I ignore the dashboard error and manually check the pressure periodically?

Without the sensors, the lights will continue to warn you your pressure is low. No harm will come from this to your vehicle. It is a safety system to warn you about the tire pressure so you will take immediate action. The manufacturer is ramping up to meet requirements for future safety regulations.

tpms sensors have small battery inside rim which last 5-7 years then tpms all need to be replaced with new ones could cost between $50-$100 per wheel as tires have to be opened to access tpms.

New tire installed at Discount Tire and a "tpms


The "Rebuild Kit" is just a set of seals, new mounting nut and sometimes, a new valve cap. The sensor must be removed to dismount the tire from the rim without breaking the sensor. (The valve stem is actually part of the sensor - this is why you shouldn't have a charge for "Valve Stem" on your bill.) Installing the sensor with new seals, nut, and valve cap did not cause your light to come on. Breaking the sensor during removal or installation could cause it. Over-inflating the tires can also cause the light to come on in some vehicles. Any way you look at it, they should fix the problem and reset your TPMS Computer to get the light turned off without any argument unless the problem is being caused by a sensor on a wheel other than the one that was replaced. (In this case, it would be pure coincidence that the sensor decided to give up the ghost immediately after the other tire was replaced...not real likely, but I've had similar things happen to cars I've worked on.)

I bought two rims with TPMS capability and put winter tires on them for my 2007 Honda Civic. I can not clear the TPMS light. I would think I would have to tell the TPMS that I have new/different rims on...


The new sensor I.D.'s will need to be programmed into the TPMS system. You could spend a couple of thousand dollars to get the tools to do this or call around some local shop or the dealer to see what the get for this. Then next summer you get to reprogram them again.

The other option is to pull 2 TPMS sensors out of your summer tires and install them into your winter wheels. Use a TPMS service kit to seal them up. You won't need to reprogram anything if you go this route.

The third option is not to worry about it. The old fashioned way of doing things was to check your tires every couple weeks for proper inflation. If you are in tune with the way your vehicle handles than you should be able to notice the change in the handling characteristics as a tire goes low. After all we survived for 100 years without TPMS.

I have a 1999 grand am gt1 im installing new rims and tires will i need to buy new sensors


No you should not have to by new sensor. If you mean the ABS sensor's there attached to the wheel hubs and if you mean the tire pressure monitoring system (TPMS) there are two types. Once is with your ABS system and the other is with the valve stem on the rims, so if the TPMS is on the valve stem, have the tire shop swap them on to the new rims.
Good luck and keep me posted.

Disable tpms


I don't know if there is a problem with your TPMS receiver (on dash board), or your TPMS sensor is disable (in four tire). If it's the receiver problem, You have to go to the dealer ship to solve the problem. If it's the sensor problem. You can go to the dealer ship to let them find which sensor or sensors are fault, And replace them by the new one then doing the reset process.

Tire pressure light remains on.


We took it back to the dealer. They made the necessary adjustments needed after the winter tires +rims were put on.
