yeah they have 433 stamped right on them and visibly they are identical to the ones that are in my original set. Down to the FCC #s . I keep looking at the other 3 and the one from my original set looking for an on off switch LOL

They were automatically detected by my Rene without any issues.

If you're not going to use the stick wheels, I'consider selling them. I've never heard of a dealer hassling a customer for aftermarket wheels/tires.
How does the computer know which sensors are on which tires? In the past when I get my tires rotated, the dealer has had to reprogram each TPMS in each tire so that the correct tire was lined up with the correct pressure on the screen on the dash. Does the Renegade automatically sense which corners of the vehicle the sensors are in?

yeah its the near field communication tech the Ren comes with, the same way it knows you have the fob in your pocket.

Radio frequency, hence the MHZ #s , is how it transmits from the sensor to the receiver. Every 100 milliseconds (plus or minus) data gets sent, and based on pressure, kicks a light if its low enough. If it operated as the same as the keyless, there would be some interference. Also why there are 2 frequencies used in all TPMS sensors.


GM vehicles need to be relearned after a rotation is done, as it doesn't know when sensors are moved. Others, like certain Jeeps, FCA vehicles, do not need a reset, and indirect systems (mazda,Honda,audi,etc) must be reset or relearned with a drive cycle, or a reset of the computer with a button, or a few presses of some buttons - see audi.

Had my tire shop install them and they were picked up by the computer before i left his driveway. Are you sure you got 433mhz? I know for a fact the much cheaper 434mhz (that the cherokee uses) will not work. Good luck.

@kbagrows thank you I used the same seller to get an extra set of those 433 MHz sensors. @Pliny the seller on ebay that kbagrows used to buy his is very reasonable and sold me a set of four of the 433 MHz for $100 shipped to my door. Hopefully they work well. @txjeeper35 that must be it, I have had and still have a GM vehicle that requires a tool to relearn each tire once the tires are rotated. I am glad this Renegade automatically relearns the sensors! So that way I can rotate my own tires in the driveway and save $25 each time. Excellent!
