I have 2016 Rogue and when I got my summer wheels (RTX brand) installed, I couldn't get my TPMS programmed anywhere, even my brother whose a Infiniti mechanic couldn't do it. Also around the same time, I started to hear a metallic clunk while driving at low speed. Took it to the dealership because I thought there was a mechanical problem, but only to find out that my 4 TPMS were loose in my tires!!
That's what was making the noise.
Nissan said it's the installer fault, but he also did my winter tires, but they are fine. How could he installed incorrectly 4 out of 8 TPMS and all on the same set? He's a long time Lexus mechanic and my brother's best friend, extremely trustworthy. The Nissan Mechanic told me that he saw those snap-in TPMS loose in tires often, but they always blame the previous installer. Said that they probably knock them out of place while mounting the tire!?!?
So I have 3 broken OEM TPMS , one survived. I opened one to see if it can be fixed and it's the 2 metal tabs holding the battery to the circuit board that snapped. Pretty hard to fix.
Anybody got those snap-in TPMS come loose in aftermarket wheels? Cost me like 750$ (canadian) for all this trouble...
Now, should I re-installed TPMS in the wheels and risk that they fall off again or try to find a replacement with a metal stem? I heard that on most aftermarket wheels you can only put TPMS with metal stem because rubber one flex and there's a possibility that with vibration and bumps, they snap off.
Any experience with this? Couldn't find anything on google, some close, but nothing like my problem.
