I'm planning on going with genuine ford TPS parts and then getting their little device you need to program each tire sensor.
Good luck on your choices.
........aren't all TPMS sensors internal to the tire?
The big shock for the US population is that TPMS has been mandatory since 2008 on passenger cars, and it's now just about the time when 2008 era sensors will have dying batteries, so people's bills for new tires will be increasing since they will need new sensors.
....and to replace a dead sensor, you will be paying for dismount, remount & balancing.
In California, you cannot pass smog testing with a TPMS light on in the dash......if you remove the sensors, you cannot turn off the light, or the error code.
