Question about 2007 Toyota Tundra
Purchasing new tires for the 2007 Tundra , phoned dealership to see what they had and how much they charged . They told me they charged $50.00 a tire because of the tire sensor that had to be changed per tire . The average charge for the tire change was $15.00 every were else ? What gives and how hard is it to change ? I thought the sensor was just screwed onto the cap of the valve ?
As for the dealers, they tend to change the tire pressure sensor. It's most likely in there policy since they know the sensor will need to be replaced soon after and don't want too see you again for a bad tire pressure sensor.
There are good tire shops out there that have good training that will not damage the sensor that is in the rim which in most case is connected to the valve stem.
Keep in mind that there are two types of monitor device. There is the Direct system which has a sensor/transmitter inside the wheel.
The other type is the Indirect system which works off the ABS system and counts the rotation of the wheel. As one of the tire is low on air pressure the rotation is different and the ABS will signal the ECM to indicate that there is a lost of air from which tire.
