Thanks for the support guys.
Tomthbomb, Sorry to hear about your trouble with your TPMS sensors.
I'm not sure why you're sensors went bad but the TPMS batteries usually only last 4-5 years from the factory. TPMS Rebuilt kits do not replace the batteries. If your vehicle is under warranty the dealer may be able to replace your sensors for free if the batteries have gone dead too quickly. (ask your dealer about that)
Rebuilding the TPMS sensors will have no effect on the battery life. The rebuild kits only replace rubber grommets, the valve core, a threaded sleeve and the valve cap. Replacing these items when you install new tires or wheels helps to prevent leaks as well as condensation or water from getting into your TPMS sensors and damaging them.
***TIP about TPMS valve caps: Do not replace your plastic valve caps with metal ones. Metal ones will corrode quickly and allow water to get into your TPMS sensors. If you want the look of a metal cap find one that is plastic with a metal looking finish. All of our locations should have these available.
If you haven't ordered your Procal, stop into one of our stores and have one of the "bad" TPMS sensors removed. If its wet there may have been a problem with install of the rebuild kits, if its dry and the batteries are just plain dead, contact your dealer to see if they will replace them for free for you.
