TPMS replacement cost

Recently my "Low Tire" light has been going off randomly on my '09 JKU Sahara. Im fairly confident the TPMS sensor battery's are low/depleted. I called Pep Boys to ask how much it would cost to replace them and was told the sensor itself was $250 a piece!

So - Im pretty sure Im asking the wrong question, but isnt there some TPMS "fix kit" or something to replace the batteries or do I need to buy all new sensors and have them installed?

What do I need to buy online for my Jeep?

I have 17" rims on my Sahara if that makes a difference.

Yea, try shopping a little. Pep Boys is obviously trying to rip you off (or the individual you spoke to was an idiot). Factory TPMS sensors directly from Jeep dealership wouldn't cost nearly that much.
Aftermarket ones you can get way cheaper, though I would avoid the no-name Made in China $35 for 5 type. Decent aftermarket ones cost $30-40 each and are all over the internet.
And no, they don't make them serviceable to replace the batteries. You have to replace the whole sensor when it goes bad.
You should replace them all at the same time, ideally when you are replacing your tires. The sensors generally go bad every 3-5 years or so.

Here's factory ones direct from a dealership. $73.26 each:

Just throwing it out there, if you have a Procal or other tool that can recalibrate, you can get aftermarket ones as well. The set I have on my Jeep (Bought off Amazon, no longer on the site) are still working almost 10 years later. Also have a set on my other car that are just as old. That route (Assuming you have the tool already) will cost you less than one internal sensor. Also handy because you don't have to dismount the tires.

You can get nicer ones that include more sensors if you are towing a trailer as well.

No towing with a 12 year old jeep Thanks for the input MCMike37. After looking around it seems $73 for MOPAR TPMS modules isnt a bad price. Now to find someone to install them without charging an arm and a leg!

One last followup question on the TPMS sensors and my '09 - I believe there is no need to "reset" these from a programmer. Dont these sensors "report themselves" once driven a few miles? Might have this mixed up with another vehicle.

On a JK, the TPMS sensors don't need to be reset. They will start reporting after a few miles.
