    TPMS Sensor (who has replaced for dead battery?)

    '12 Civics are coming up on 8 and some 9 years in service. Honda says the sensor battery should last between 7 and 10 years, depending on mileage.
    So.
    Who here has replaced TPMS sensor due to dead batteries?

    If so:
    How many years of service?
    Mileage on car?

    Not exactly what you are asking but my moms 09 civic had a sensor die 2 years ago with about 160k miles.
    Direct system just like the 12-13

    Worked on cars proffesionally for 4 years now.
    I would say its a close to daily occurance that I replace dead TPMS sensors. Mileage/age vary but obviously the older the sensor the more likely the battery is going out. We use Autel brand sensors to replace OE ones, and they work like a charm.

    Thanks for the reply.

    Let me ask you this:
    Would you replace the TPMS sensors when replacing all 4 tires?
    If the car is 8 years in service but only has 30,000 miles.

    Also: where in the world are you located?

    No, only replace as needed. You could have one go out and the other 3 go for years. If any are currently dead, yes, it does make sense to replace the non functioning sensors druing tire changing.

    Thanks for the reply.

    What specific Autel type of programming tool and sensors do you use to replace the OE ones?

    So Im not sure what tool, I go to work in a few hours and I can post pictures. The sensors are new from autel. We used to have 4 different ones, 315MHz both metal and rubber stem, and then 433MHz metal and rubber. Now they make a dual frequency sensor so it would be just choosing between a rubber or metal valve stem. Again I can post pics when I get to work today. I prefer rubber stems to metal ones. Cant tell you how many stupid metal stems I replace throughout a work week. They just corrode and end up leaking. Rubber is much cheaper and easier to replace if they go bad.

    Those dual frequency sensors save a lot of headache.
    Whenever I'm suffering from Insomnia, I just look at a picture of a Toyota Camry and I'm straight off.
