Sensors don't transmit unless the wheel is turning at a certain rate .

Really? No need for dealer to code the sensors??? Hope you're not confusing it with the button on the console, which is the 'flat tire warning' reset, which was designed before TPMS was mandated.

This is the first time I've heard that, and just want to make sure. Some cars have the capability for 2 sets of sensors, with a corresponding switch (usually inside the glove box). This is awesome news if true . Oh, and are you talking about '08/'09 cars, or '10? Thx.
