  1. Hi Guys, Just wanted to say thanks or the help on this - I finally got round to trying the battery replacement trick on my day off last week and it worked a treat! I've only needed to do one sensor so far, I think the warmer temperatures have revived the other low battery for the time being. I got a full quote for TPMS replacement from my local lexus dealer (I only managed to get the price for the part last time) and they quoted £178 per wheel! So huge savings to me made by doing it yourself. Jimi
  2. Thanks Colin. So can anyone confirm if any 433mhz Toyota/lexus sensor will work on a 2005 GS? Something like this? https://m.ebay.co.uk/itm/One-TPMS-Valve-433MHz-Toyota-Avensis-Auris-and-Lexus/173151109282?epid=28011986306&hash=item28509c40a2:g:bmQAAOSw8W5aWQKa I like the battery replacement idea, but without an easy way to remove the sensors from the wheel myself it's going to take me multiple trips back and fourth to my tyre fitter and this is my only car making logistics quite tricky!
  3. Thanks guys, I'm usually pretty good with this sort of thing so will give it a try. Do you have any tips on removing the tyres from the rims yourself, or are you taking them to a tyre fitter for that bit? I've watched a few videos on YouTube giving DIY tricks for breaking the tyre bead but it looks tricky.
  4. Hi all, I've recently purchased a 2005 3rd gen GS300 and am really happy with it. Unfortunately I have a TPMS 'Check System' error, and having acquired techstream and a mini VCI cable I can see 2 sensors are not transmitting, presumably out of battery. Lexus have quoted £75 per sensor plus extra for fitting, so I've been searching on eBay UK for sensors and all the GS300 ones seem to be 315mhz, but I've read elsewhere that UK ones are 433mhz. Can anyone in the UK confirm what frequency the sensors are? Also, will any generic 433mhz sensor work or does it need to be specifically be for a mk3 GS? Many thanks, Jimi
