Can all 4 TPMS sensors go bad?
As you mentioned, it does seem unlikely, yet it is not impossible, for all 4 sensors to actually have failed in the same time period (between the time the TPMS light illuminated, and the time I went to have the sensors read).
Can you replace just one TPMS sensor?
If one of your TPMS sensors fails and needs replacement, you can replace it individually. However, if the failure was caused by a dead sensor battery, it’s likely that the other sensors are close to failing as well.
What happens if you don’t replace TPMS sensors?
Basically there is no problem in running tires without the tire pressure sensors other than, as you point out, the warning light showing at all times. Obviously, when a tire is removed from the rim, there is no pressure, which means the TPMS has to be reset when the new or different tire is installed.
How do I install new TPMS sensors?
