Hi Guys, 

Do you have to change the Sensors in the Wheels if you change the Tyres?

Thank you.

Easy answer - no.

I know because within about three days of driving away from the dealer after buying the car, I got a puncture so close to the sidewall that it (an almost brand new tyre) had to be replaced and no sensors were changed but the system still works as it should.

Thanks Herbie, Seems a bit of a gray area.

No, only if they are old or damaged in the tyre changing process. I’ve had one tyre off for a puncture within a month of getting the car and then again with the other 3 when I got cross climates put in. Make sure the garage fitting knows it has sensors so they can be extra careful and ensure they put the wheels back on in the same position.

I have just had 4 new tyres put on at Costco, it states on the receipt the vehicle has TPMS , and I have come away and the light stayed on, I checked the tyre pressures they were slightly high, and a back one a bit low. I have put the correct pressures in all tyres, give it a run about and the light is still on. Any help would be appreciated as there is no reset switch anywhere. This is a 2016 model, thanks in advance.

above the pedals there is a panel where the foot light is located

you will also see a tpms button this needs to be pressed and held

for a few seconds for the system to be reset.

Hi Quincemeister, you really have to get your head as close to the pedals as you can to find it. 

I would be interested to know what tyres you got from Costco?

No they were definitely 4, it was following a recommendation from the guy who worked at Costco at Lakeside.

    1. 1. If you were to consider buying a Hybrid model over 5 years old, would you be worried about the reliability of the Hybrid system?


      • Not really as Hybrid systems are always reliable
      • Not if it had a Manufacturers Warranty on the Hybrid system
      • I would not buy a Hybrid model over 5 years old
