    I have a tps sensor acting up on me on my 2013 1500 and about to buy the replacement mopar sensor. My question is, after I replace the sensor do I have to do anything for it to sync with the truck?

    Not a thing. The vehicle reads the wheel mounted sensor all by itself. As long as it’s the right model/frequency it’ll take care of itself.

    If you buy from Mopar / dealer make certain they check the frequency of the needed sensor by the VIN.

    2013 was, I believe the year they changed frequencies and you want to buy the correct one. I believe it was a mid year change.

    It's great news I'm happy it's that simple. Also I use the Mopar website and use my VIN number to part!!

    guys, thank you as always with the fast replies. This site is a great resource!

    Doing the trailer tires was almost as effort less. Took me 4 minutes to do 4 trailer tires. Let 3-5 psi out of each tire when you here the horn chirp, it's synced to truck, move to the next tire

    The factory TPMS will also monitor trailer tires?

    That's what I was referring to. I had mine installed at a quick tire shop then i programmed them in effortlessly. When i get my tri axle ill buy some more. You can do something like 4 different trailers with up to around a dozen tires each. I have heard though that on your long trailers, sometimes the ttpms Reciever won't read the sensors if your trailer is really long. I'm thinking if I have this happen when I get my tri axle, ill have an Extention made for my Reciever plug so I can magnet it to my truck and easily move it back to trailer.

    Well had two trailer blowouts on my fiver in less than 24 hrs , yippee, but on a positive note, the trailer sensor ttpms warned me both times. Well the leaking tire warned me, the blow out told me loud and quick
