TPMS Questions

I have an '09' KK bought new in '10. About a month ago, I came out of the house to go somewhere and found my driver side rear tire flat. Upon repair of the tire, the cause was determined to be that the TPMS valve stem & attached electronics had went bad.

Tuesday, the same happened to the front driver side tire. This was sudden. I went somewhere and was coming back home. Ended up having to do a roadside flat change. It was the same deal. The TPMS crapped out. No puncture of the tire, etc.

Question 1: What is the likelihood of this happening on the passenger side? I tend to now want to swap them out because of this, but do not want to waste the expense of buying them either if this is some sort of fluke. On the other hand, it sucks to have to do a roadside tire change too... especially if you have to be somewhere you cannot be late (for any reason).

Question 2: Does the new sensors need to be 'registered' with my vehicle's computer. The reason for asking, is that when the first one was replaced, I could drive 13.3 miles and then the dash light for it would start blinking... meaning that there was some sort of error with it. With the second one replaced, now it just stays on or sometimes flash & then stays on. The tire pressures all around are OK, so I know that is not the case.

I understood that the computer in the Liberty would 'self learn' whatever the new TPMS codes were... not so sure now.

Thanks!
