tire pressure sensors

Well, guy's, new question, what are people now doing with there TPS's that is attached to their stock wheels? Some of us, including myself are still running the same stock wheels and they are coming up 10 years old, end of there battery life. Do we continue to use the strap on wheel sensors or do we go with the valve stem type?

I'd move to the valve stem type because they'd cost less...I think. American Muscle has a nice video on how to install & reprogram.

I've had one fail, and replaced it with a valve-stem monitor.

I've got the new valve type and can't get them 'talking' to the car at all. All but given up now and resided to the fact that I'm always going to have a little orange light on the dash. Getting quite used to it now!!

I read this the other day and last night mine went bad. Off to American Muscle. I'm sick of spending money on this car.

Bill, hopefully American Muscle will give you more info on how to program the sensors than the internet ad shows.

Yeah...Mustangs were made for people who love spending money on cars. I mean, just ask Terry.

Seriously, car upkeep costs are something we should think more about when eyeing that showroom beauty. Very generally speaking, they range from the Camry or Accord...both as reliable as a refrigerator and about as exciting to drive, to a thrill ride Ferrari that can't pass a mechanic without costing you. Hopefully our Mustangs are a compromise somewhere in the middle of that range?

Well I have been thinking over your comment.
I don't know that I would say I (Enjoy) spending money on my 08 Bullitt Mustang exactly.
I think it it really goes like this,
I really like all the Super-High-Tech stuff and in order to have them it (Requires) me to constantly it seems to spend (Large) sums of my monies.

But I can easily see from an outsider looking at things they very well might conclude I simply love throwing and constantly spending money on the Bullitt Mustang.

In the past, I have contacted the dealer and "asked" for the new p/n... then off to ebay for some take offs. New and about 70% off... so far.. so good!

Frank has a new partner. He didn't ask for it, and he wasn't thrilled about it. We get along... for now.

If you need something from Frank... ask me, it will just be easier on you.

Well I just found out that my $484 bumper repair went to $700. There was more damage under the front lip so they're going to strip it and redo the whole thing. Plus fix a little spot on the right rocker that's been bothering me.
I'm done spending for a while. My wife is gonna kill me if I don't stop, lol. The TPMS sensors will have to wait until I swap in my new summer tires in June.
