Tire pressure sensors

I am contemplating buying a set of tire pressure sensor transmitters from an eBay listing. These were pulled from a 2011 Fusion with 12,000 miles. I just purchased the same year Fusion that has after market wheels and not sure if they were reinstalled with the new wheels. Is there a way of determining if they are in my wheels? If i purchase these will they connect to my system without any programming problems. Do you have any information that I should know on this subject before making any purchase?

Re: Tire pressure sensors

I thought that if the sensor is no longer sensed, it'll set off the TPS indicator as well.

Ever notice that there's so many high performance parts available for GM products?

Did you ever think that maybe they NEED them?

Re: Tire pressure sensors

On my vehicle (non-Ford) when my tire sensor went bad, the low tire light did not come on, the TPMS light came on which means system non-operational.

cool Re: Tire pressure sensors

If you have missing or damaged TPM sensors the Low Tire light will flash on startup. Most all car manufacturers have gone to TPM sensors with replaceable rubber stems like the ones you found on ebay, but the threaded part of the stem for the cap has a thick shoulder.
