Default Replacing one TPMS, do I need programming?

I searched and ended up confused!

I broke a stem and probably need to replace one of the TPMS units. I am hoping the sender is still in the tire and not broken but I haven't tried to find it yet.


If I replace the whole unit (sender/stem, etc.) do I need to have the sender programmed? Or since it is only one unit, will it be recognized by the jeep? (2008)

Also, I am looking at Schrader 20066 TPMS Sensor on amazon. Anyone know another source?

Thanks!

BTW: watch out for cracks on the stem nuts. I noticed it when I rotated and hoped for the best. But guess what happened.....

There are two different types (frequency). As long as you get the one compatible for a 2008 you're fine. It should synch automatically once the tire is rolling for at least 20 min.

Thanks, kik.

I see that two other tires have cracked stem nuts. I guess I'll get replacements and fix them before I go through this again.

I'll need new tires sometime next year and replace all the sensors.

Anyone know if the rubber stem sensors are compatible with the 2008 models?
