TPMS Sensor in spare?

    Sorry if this is remedial, but is there a TPMS sensor in the stock spare tire? I replaced my alloy wheels with some new ones, and the tires with 295/70/18's. However, my spare is still the stock one that looks to be steel. When the tire place swapped out my wheels/tires, they used the TPMS sensors that came with the stock wheels.

    I've got a fifth rim I'd like to put another 295/70/18 on, but if the stock spare does have a TPMS sensor, and as I understand it, I would not be able to use that sensor on an alloy wheel. So, I'm wondering if there is a 5th TPMS sensor in there or not, and if so, I'm guessing I'm going to have to get a different sensor and have the dealership program it?

    Again, sorry if this is all remedial, but I do appreciate the help.

    There is not one in the stock spare, but when I upgraded to my new wheels and tires I purchased a 5th wheel and tire to match and did put a TPMS sensor in it. The dealer activated the code for it in the truck.

    Some Toyota vehicles do. Our limited 4Runner did.

    I also thought there was one in the Tundra spare. Learn something new on here daily.

    My wife's fj had one on the spare. Warning light came on one day and I aired all 4 tires but light was still on. Called the dealer for a warranty work on the sensors and they ask if I checked the spare. Aired the spare and light went away:crazy: idk about the tundras though.

    Weird. Some models do have them in the spare and others do not.

    Did your FJ have the aluminum spare?

    Wonder if it is a trim level thing?

    My 2015 SR5 with upgrade did not have one in the spare. When I got a matching wheel and tire for a spare I didn't put one in either....
