Is there any cheaper tool than the J-46079?

your local tire dealer has the tool, they might charge 15-20 bucks to reset it, but that would be cheaper than buying a tool. If you were here in MI by me I would do it free as I have two of them here at the shop lol

I guess my sensors are going out. The past few days, 1 or more have not been reporting pressure and I get the service tpms system message at key on (flashing for a minute before going solid). Most times, it is just1 or both rear tires, but sometimes it is all 4. My car is 7.5 years old with 167k miles (although I have 2 sets of wheels with their own sensors so not all 167k are on the same sensors). I'm guessing the sensor batteries are weak and dying.

Are the batteries replaceable or does the entire sensor need to be replaced?

Interesting question, never gave it a thought that there was a battery involved. Will have to check into this one further.

yup batteries in them die around 6-7 years. If you get the ez sensor part # 33500, they are a blank universal that you have to program with a tool.
