I have an '05 STS with the V8. I have one sensor that starts out fine, then shows blank, then sends an alarm depending on how long I drive. Dealer told me that the sensor is not serviceable (no battery to replace) you just have to get a new one. Now the 2nd wheel has started doing the same thing, and I guess the others are not far behind. Is the solution really an aftermarket device and a tire place?

Also when it says LF, is that the driver's front as I'm sitting in the car or the passenger's front as I'm looking at the car?
Thanks.

TPMS sensors use a lithium battery. They go dead, and the solution is a complete tire rotation/sensor replacement, using OEM sensors. Then they are programmed (owner's manual ?) by using the key fob and a healthy magnet. During the program sequence each sensor is assigned a wheel location - LF, RF, RR, LR - and when you again rotate the tires you again go through the relearn sequence.

Google "cadillac forums tpms relearn procedure".

Do you guys think the TPMS sensors in 2011+ Chrysler 300 wheels will program to the car? Thinking of getting that style of wheel from a 300 and often the seller will include the TPMS. I'd rather not shell out $200 for new ones (2 of mine in my original wheels are dying).

Thank you, I'll have to try to negotiate those out of the deal when I'm ready to purchase. ;)

Just replace the two that are intermittently failing, then worry about the others when it's time to worry about them.
