Tire Valves????

Broke my tire valve, Went to the local tire shop they told me that i had to call the dealer due to the sensors in the tires. The jeep dealer told me its $60 for the new sensor and $100 to program and install them. Does anyone know if they can just change to valve stem and keep the same sensor??? Thanks in advance

Do you have a JK???? haven't heard this one before, maybe a sensor on the wheels or rim, but I doubt theres a sensor in the tire itself.

What is the purpose of the sensor??? if it's nothing special or important would just use regular valve. 97-06 TJ's never had sensors in the wheels... lol

You don't have to doit, but

You can buy a "flashpac" module that will reset your ECM and other things, but I don't know about those ($100/200 bucks)

You don't say, but your JK has to me a late '07, or newer !!

If you just replace the "sensor" with a rubber valve stem, then you will always "alert" the TPMS system and there will be a little "chime" when you first insert the key and a little Tire profile light on the dash

If you can live with that--use a rubber tire valve stem and tell the shop TO REPLACE YOUR VALVE STEM WITH WHAT YOU SAY !!!

Good luck

I have an 08 sensor is in the tire attached to the valve itself. Tire guy took it out of my spare for me. The threads on the valve stem are broke. Just wondering if I could just fix the stem rather then swap out the stem I'll post pics after work. Thanks for your responses.
