    I'm posting this here because the general life expectancy of the senors in the tires means the ones in the early 2nd gens should be dying. My TPMS light is flashing on my 07 so I'm assuming one has died. Without a scanner to check which one has failed and since they are all the same age I'll do them all.

    I have seen lots of aftermarket ones (I assume cheap Chinese clones), has anyone tried that route?

    Look online for Denso replacements. they are the OEM and can be had for 40 a sensor.
    as for life? ive got 2 cars in the family with TPMS, both avalons. both are on the original sensors after 15 years.

    I bought a cheap set on Amazon that’s the cheap knockoff for my 2nd set of wheels/tires for $50 for the set. They didn’t have the RF id printed on them but Discount Tire was able to program them with zero issues. I also have TechStream and now that I know RF ids for both sets, I can easily reprogram the TPMS sensor IDs myself if needed.

    I purchased 4 from Amazon that was listed as a Toyota OEM and they are made by TRW. I paid about $120 for the 4 of them. They have been on for 1 1/2 years and no problems.

    My wife’s 08 scion TPMS shit the bed 3 years ago. We just got used to the light being on. Time to change the tires came up before I had the chance to buy/search for new ones at a decent price. So it’ll probably stay that way until next time.

    couple of months. I know, not long enough to say how long they will last. I did check them with techstream and the psi reading was accurate. But for $100 parts and labor, I can't complain
