2nd set of TPMS sensors

Im buying a new set of wheels and tires for the summer, for my 2011 grand cherokee. I will keep the stock for winter driving and want both sets to be equipped with tpms sensors. Will I need to have the new set programmed at the dealership after the wheels are on, or do they auto program? And do they need to be programmed every time I swap wheels?

Re: 2nd set of TPMS sensors

I think they program themselves after 20 min of driving at HWY speeds... but im not sure and I would like to know this aswell because my new wheels will be arriving soon.

Yes!! Get the new sensors that work with your year GC and they will register after a few minutes and that's it. I did this at the start of the winter and it was to easy. You can find a great deal on the tmps on eBay FYI.

Re: 2nd set of TPMS sensors

Mine didn't. One was missing completely and tires mixed up. They needed help from tire dealer.

They were new OEM TPMS (ebay).

Curious what will happen when I switch back.

But supposedly there is a "List" of sensor ID's and the other set should work fine now.

Who ever mounts the tires should be able to get them working for you.

Tires have to be mounted on the car.

If I recall he scanned each sensor, telling it which wheel it was on.

Then plugged in to the car and uploaded the info.

After that they started working perfectly before I got out of the parking lot.

Agreed.
Whoever is selling the wheels/tires should know exactly which sensors to fit and whether the TPMS system on your year vehicle needs to be reprogrammed or not.

On the 2014, using MOPAR sensors, nothing was required other than driving it.
No clue what the 2011 system needs, but that SHOULD be part of the service at the tire/wheel dealer.
