a local tyre refurb place, when my two front ones went bad.
He just scanned the original and reprogrammed the new ones with his tool.
They were about 50+ each, cheaper than importing a set.
They did need programming to the car when we changed them as one that
was taken off was on my passenger seat and set an alarm off for zero pressure
when I drove away. It must scan for sensors and pick up whats been
programmed to it.
It is easy to do, its in the handbook how to do it.


I'am confused. Are you saying that you can buy generic ones and program them so that they will work on either a US spec car or (different frequency) Euro/UK spec car?

OE Euro spec part number is 25758221 (UH3). The red bodied ones in the below.

Either way, I'd speak to Keith at Eurovettes, to see if he has any in stock.

Re: New alloy wheels


I had mine reprogrammed, seems he took program from one sensor
and sent it to the new ones.
Have added a photo of what he had on his computer regards Corvettes.
Note to self, don't leave an old sensor in the car, it picks it up when scanning
and sends an error message for zero pressure, don't ask how I know Sad

Re: New alloy wheels


Little article mentioning programmable, universal and cloneable sensors:

https://www.redi-sensor.com/dont-confuse-tpms-relearn-sensor...

If you do a search on TPS 66116 (2004-2010 Corvette) it brings up this ad for a Schrader manufactured sensor.

https://shop.autogem.co.uk/product/o-e-sensor-bj02/tpms-sens...

As you can see, 66116 looks like the Shrader part #. The alternative part number shown is 25758221 (the Euro spec/frequency OE part number). See on the RockAuto link above, they have an OE style/ID, Cloneable, no programming required one.

Can you remember the make of the ones you had fitted (shown on the invoice?)?

Re: New alloy wheels


I don't remember the name and the paperwork is hard to get to at the moment.
Can call them and ask on Tuesday.

He went to a good sensor and downloaded its info then went to the new ones and uploaded its info.
When all were programmed we went through the relearn procedure using the key fob
and his TPMS tool.
Basically put it into program with the key fob and went around the car wheels
setting the sensors with his tool.

Re: New alloy wheels


Thanks! Thumbs up I've learnt something. Always assumed that if you needed new ones, you had to get the OE AC Delco ones (with the right frequency). Like I did a while back when a garage broke one fitting new tyres. Maybe not? The RockAuto "clonable" one above says that it is 315Mhz (the US spec). Is you car US or Euro/UK spec?

Re: New alloy wheels


Thanks/that's good news, my car is UK/Eurospec also. Car is 10 years old, so expecting the batteries in the 3 original sensors to give up the ghost before too long (?)

As above, US frequency is 315Mhz/Euro 433 Mhz (sensor transmits to same receiver used for keyless entry/locking).

Maybe should rename this thread "Replacing TPMS sensors" (?) Laughing

Orange ones from autodoc work perfectly and a 12 tpms reset from amazon.

My car came with no sensors.

Had an annoying service tire monitor message and you can't use competition mode or turn off traction and active handling. And I like things to work anyway.

That part number ending in 1 is correct, 0 is the US ones, autodoc have several but I got the ones that looked like the orange oem ones. Ali express also have 4 for 80 but didnt want to take the chance.
