Who sells 'em for $2?

If they are the all metal stems with a nut on the outside you will have to get a new one, they are one piece. If they are the new style ones with a rubber valve stem the stems and the sensor can be bought seperately. Some cars have them in the spare tire as well but I'm pretty sure the jeeps don't. Even if it did and you moved it from the spare to fix that one the light would still be on since spares that have sensors are monitored as well. $112 is an average price, they vary from $45 to up to $200 and over for some cars. Do not band the sensor in the rim, sensors that are meant to be banded are banded style from the factory, If you're going to be cheap you shouldn't have optioned the system in the first place. As far as being illegal, it will be soon at inspection time in some states when they become standard from the factory on every vehicle. Along the lines of abs lights, even though you still have normal brakes if the abs light is on most states will fail you. Wash your wheels when you wash the truck and absolutely DO NOT use metal style valve caps and you will most likely never have issues with them again.

And complaining about removal/mount/balance on a tire repair is as stupid as complining about the disposal charge for "hazardous waste" from an oil change. Do it yourself if you don't want to pay for it...............

When I got home that day, I took it out for a ride (my other Jeep is a TJ). TPMS warning off! I guess I had to take it out farther than my driveway

What is cheap about putting the sensor in a location where it still works and does not risk getting destroyed while offroading.

The thing that actually started the banding was people who wanted to keep their sensors when running high dollar 2 and 3 piece wheels on sports cars.

I've got a 2010 WK, with the basic TPMS, it has the aluminum valve stems, one just broke. Now the dealer wants over 100 dollars to replace it?!?!?! My car is no longer under warranty since i have like 44k on it. I've been reading the thread and looking at the rebuild kits. So are the rebuild kits an option for the aluminum valve stem model? Is it possible to buy the new style ones (separate sensor and rubber stem) to replace the old one? No point in buying something that has a problem that we all know.

I took mine off, all of them.

The light is on, but I know my tires are good.

Rubber stems make my life in the cold easier

Well it looks like the new model is a rubber stem, I want to know if this model is compatible with my system. If you search for this model number 56029481AB you will find an example.

Temp spares do not have TPMS,only a full size spare will and then it's a option(package) to have the 5 tire TPMS system.

Ford was really the only ones that ever had the banded TPMS sensors and they have scraped that idea long ago as it was a bad idea.

No you can not switch to the new style sensors due to them operating at a different frequency then what your system requires.Those rebuild kits just replace the sealing parts and not the sensor or valve stem.

This is the only tpms thread I could find so sorry if I vear off course alil....a few days ago I played in the snow.....needless to say my tpms came on yesterday and I thought it was from the cold and now my tire is kinda flatish....I threw air in it and am monitoring it to see if it goes back down....now my question is does the light stay on or does it turn off automaticly or do I gotta go to the dealler to get it turned off....or is there a cheat to turn it off like the oil change warning???? All input will help and I can't research too much cause I'm at work...thanks guys!

IIRC it should go off after a couple of revolutions of the tire. As long as that was the issue

Depending on model year you actually can since Chrysler has superseded the old sensors with the new style. I just did this a few weeks ago.

In terms of the XK the part numbers are as follows (XK model year - old PN - new PN):
2006 - 56053030AB - 68078861AA
2007 - 56053036AA - 56029479AB
2008 - 56029359AA - 56029481AB
