I still have my cheap Amazon one from my '09 Malibu. Works fine on my fleet.
The one I bought many years ago on Amazon for many times the price looks just like the orange ones minus the graphics. Never had a problem and use it every time I rotate or switch between summer & winter tires. Much easier and faster than using the old "let some air out" method which I believe has been phased out by most manufacturers.
I have the EL-50448 model. (might not be the same branding). Works great!
As mentioned by superdave that's most likely because the battery has died in that sensor. Your options are either replace the sensor which all 4 should be done, or if you can deal with it, wait until you install new tires and replace them then. But if one has gone the others are sure to follow.Bought this 15 in 18, have the tires rotated every other oil change, 8 to 9k miles. Never had a problem till now.
As stated before I use Discount Tire which,apparently, use a relearn tool. If they said any thing about it I don't remember.
Use them for new tires and flat repairs. I do all rotations and summer/winter swaps and required relearn procedures myself."I too use Discount tire sometimes and one time they did not perform the relearn procedure because my rears were switched (on a staggered setup), so I always redo it myself which takes a minute. "
U rotate wheels? or relearn sensors? Or both? Have used Discount since they came to the Promese Land several years ago, have never had anything but Excellent Service & prices. Fact is, have taken vehicles, they've never seen, in for tire rotation, flats, etc.,and most of the time they don;t charge, if I have done business in the last couple years or so.
Read the story of the 30 year old,heavily in debt man with a family who started Discount back in the 70,s up in Michigan. Interesting.
