Tire Pressure Sensors

I am looking to get some aftermarket wheels and tires and I want to retain the factory Tire Pressure Monitoring System. I also am not keen on dismounting my factory rims and tires just to get the sensors out of the wheels as I may need to put them back in the future if I upgrade to a current model year Titan and want to take my aftermarket wheels and tires with me. Can anyone tell me the following:

1)How much are the sensors if I just bought 4 new ones to put in the the new wheels and tires?

2)Can new sensors be programmed to my truck without unprogramming the old ones?

3)Can pressure sensors be programmed to any Titan?

Thanks in advance!

I had a bit of experience on these sensors on last titan. The sensors are about 70 bucks a piece. You will have to get Nissan to program your titan for the new sensors but this only takes a few minutes. You can get sensor out and in without dismounting from rim so that may be your best option. You will need to keep sensors on left side of vehicle on left and right side on right.

Also, the sensor is part of your valve assembly and it is a hair smaller in diameter then most valve stems. When at tire shop but a couple bucks worth of different size rubber grommets for stems so you can seal it up.

Good luck!

I gotcha! I was thinking you had to take the tire off the rim to get the sensor out. So if you deflate the tire and remove the valve stem the sensor will pull right through the hole??? Anyone have a picture of one of these things?

The valve stem is connected to sensor (it is all one piece). So you will need to deflate tire (fully!), push tire away from rim in area of valve stem and then pull out valve stem/sensor from the back of rim (after you unscrew it from front of course.). It helps to have a second set of hands but not absolutley neccessary.

Let me know if this made sense to you. Wish I had a pic of sensor but dont.sorry

Thanks everyone! This is good stuff. So then, it seems the best approach to this would be to remove the sensors from my factory wheels, have generic valve stems without sensors put back into the factory wheels and the tires re-inflated, and sell them. If I purchase another Titan, work it out at the time of sale to have the factory wheels from the new Titan put on my old Titan and vice versa. Then have the dealer program the sensors to both vehicles. Sound about right? Because otherwise I have to extract the sensors back and forth to much. Can the sensors be programmed while inside the tires?

so if we rotate our tires, is the tire light going to come on when the right goes to the left and vise versa?

According to my service departent, it was designed to rotate front to back and not criss cross. I took their word for it and went front to back and didnt have any problems. Being that this info came from "my service department", this info and 1 buck will get you some coffee from Mickey D's. I also had already always rotated front to back so it wasnt a big issue for me. scr38 might be able to verify this if he has service manual.

Titanhauler, the sensors will be programmed while in tires. When the tire store busted one of my sensors, I watched them program the new one. They plugged the computer thing on and then had a portable "scanner" like thing and went to each wheel with it. When it programmed it, the tail lights flash a couple times.
