The monitor in the car is 'alerted' when it doesn't get the signal that the tires are sufficiently inflated. Without a battery, the sensor does...

They have batteries, but the batteries are sesled into the sensor and cannot be replaced. The entire TMPS sensors need to be replaced. I too installed new tires on a 2009RX (built mid-2008) and I...

+1 - At least you can put it behind you and not 1. worry about or 2. get hit by other problems and issues. It's tough to do, but one should get out of a bad trade asap. I feel for you.
