So you still havethe originals (28103FLxxx 433mhz) sensors? If you haven't messed with what's stored in the car's computer, no reprogramming/upload should be required.

Please let us know what they find when they take out the clone sensors.

Nothing new here, actually. Your existing TPMS sensors broadcast 4 pieces of data: pressure, temperature, battery status and their ID code. Some higher end cars might display the temps along with pressure, but the vast majority do no.

I suppose that if you were cruising the Autobahn at 135 mph for a few hours, the potential of a tire with a broken belt overheating from internal friction and disintegrating might be of some concern. Less so to most of us....
