Hate to say it, but there are less expensive alternatives even for AC Delco OEM, its worth shopping around - labor is going to be what it is of course though...Yes, I just got this as well. I had the TPMS on my right front tire replaced. $110 for the part. $80 for the labor. Car has 44k miles on it.
There is a hand held scanner used to recalibrate the sensors and sync them with the cars computerSeems expensive for what is a $50.00 dollar part and labor that I believe is just a little more than mounting and balancing a tire. But I've been wrong before.
Well, I'm hoping that my TPMS sensors - now 7¼ years old and still going strong - will have a few more years of battery life.Battery life in sensors, 5-8 years
What is your recourse if the battery is dead and you are out of factory and extended warranty? I just quoted what the service guy told me after he charged me $55 for the new one installed.Well, I'm hoping that my TPMS sensors - now 7¼ years old and still going strong - will have a few more years of battery life.
"A GM TPMS sensor has pressure, temperature and acceleration sensors. The unit also has a radio transmitter, receiver and battery. Sensors have a 10 year /150,000 mile (240,000 km) battery life."
