Default TPMS problems

Well the shop I getting my rims swapped at just ripped one of the sensors and has to be replaced. I was searching and been reading that the light will come on now unless I take it to the dealer to reset it.

Is this true and is there anyway to bypass the sensor?

3hrs and counting.....

Hopefully the shop will order a new part for you and replace it. Yes the light will be on until it gets fixed.

Well maybe RPM will make good on what they damage.

Yes the light will have to be reprogrammed if it was replaced and you will have to make a trip to the dealer.

The TPMS setup consists of two parts; the rubber valve stems are very hard to remove without tearing them, so they usually have to be replaced. But the sensor itself doesn't usually have to be replaced.

We carry those parts, HERE.

TPMS sensor and valve stem:

Ok so Dan was right they actaully ripped the rubber part on the valve stem. And yes they did replace it at no extra cost (cuz they better have, they broke it).
So thankfully no light.

Only took 4hrs to install tires. My luck and tires are no where to be found. Last time when I went to Firestone to put tires on my Saturn it took them 7hours....

It's not their fault, if they were trying to transfer them to another set of wheels. They're not intended to be re-used.
