      I have a 2009 Jetta S Sportwagen. The base model. I replaced the wheels with 2016 VW Dallas GTI wheels. My TMPS light is on. These wheels have TMPS sensors and are all at 36psi. My vehicle does not have the steering wheels TMPS functions, nor is there a button in the glove box or by the gearshift. I have drive at least 50 miles and the light is still on. I have used the search function and cannot figure out how to get my TMPS light on the dash to go off. Please let me know with a response that does not include the word "Vag-com". I don't have that software. Thank you.

      Stop by a discount tire store, tell them your light is on and nothing else. They'll check it out for free and probably even fix it for free if it's just a programming thing, otherwise it's something like $60 per sensor if the ones you bought are bad

      Oh....they have rubber valve stems. Does this mean they do not have TMPS sensors in them?

      So you either need vcds or to go buy the sensors and have them installed if you want the tpms light gone

      Without knowing the production date of the TPMS sensor, I would be very careful what you buy. The sensors have a battery and the service life is ~5-8 years.

      Just need to find out how fresh they are Someone here just went through 3 or 4 before they found one that actually worked out.

      That was me. Just about all the TPMS sensors that are around $25-$40 each date from about 10 years ago, when their battery shelf life is maybe 8 years tops. (How can that be? Well, apparently the cheap resellers buy their stock from VW, who dumps their old sensors that way. Fresh sensors from VW are around $140 each.)

      However, I did find that the M177 sensors offered by pelicanparts.com for $44.75 currently date from late 2019. You might want to verify that, but that's who I'd go with if I needed sensors now...

      Plus the cost of having to take all the tires off, sensors installed, tires reinstalled and balanced. No thanks.

      Well, I think the benefit of having TPMS is generally worth it. I do check pressure regularly, but TPMS is to warn me of catastrophic loss of pressure after say hitting a nail.

      Fresh sensors should last eight to ten years. I'd been replacing sensors every time I got new tires, but that's not necessary. So ~$200 for sensors that will last most of a decade is reasonable.

      What I find unacceptable is having to replace sensors that I'd just bought, because the batteries were stale. Even if they're replaced under the vendor's warranty, I still have to pay for all the stuff you listed. Ask me how I know...
