OP, you have to ensure that you have the correct sensors inside the 18s you purchased, and they match your MY. MY08 and 09 sensors are different from the MY10 and MY11. If you mix and match, you'll have the TPM light on all the time.

Hope that helps.
This is incorrect... We have a flat tire monitor that measures relative rotation to detect flats but no TPMS. Our valve stems are rubber... TPMS are metal. I have changed rims many times without TPMS without issue and no warning light... cause we don't have them!
