Aftermarket TPMS sensors:
Programmable TPMS Sensors
Programmable sensors are blank, then the information for the vehicle is programmed onto the sensor from the tool.
Some advantages include less inventory and solid coverage. Also, the sensor does not go out of date. The tool determines the vehicle's availability to sensor.
