I think you will find those to be TPMS sensors not speed sensors.

You can have them remounted and hope they don't get busted up or buy new ones for your old rims, your choice.

It's up to you, but I would take them out and put them in the stock wheels. Your computer is going to pull a flat tire malfunction or code and to replace the sensors you will be looking at $60 to $100 a piece!

I recently changed my Wheels Tyres myself and could see no sensors and have no error messages with the new ones? :?

Right, AFAIK they started including TPMS on late MY06 models here in North America. Which makes the question of the OP above a bit puzzling, considering he has an 04... Is this an aftermarket TPMS?

I have whatever came stock on the 04' models -- i know when i got the aftermarket wheels the guy said it wasnt hard to switch over because it was on the outside instead of inside the wheel? I have no idea. :snooty:

Have you had the car from new? The TPMS button is opposite the DSC button. If you have this (rtfm if you are unsure) then that's what they are. And as per above, they arent cheap. They incorporate part of the valve so should be changed by a tyre shop. I think it is US legislation now that all cars must have TMPS either via pressure sensor or ABS sensor (deflated tyre has different rolling circumference)

There is not a TMPS button inside the truck.

On NA spec cars (2006 and later) there is no TPMS button on the dash either, even models fitted with the factory TPMS system. Are the valve stems on your wheels made of metal or rubber/plastic? If they are rubber, you don't have the valve sensors, if they are metal you most likely do.

Page 66 & 67 are dedicated to the TMPS US & UK both seem to have the elusive button. If you don't have the button you don't have TPMS on a 2004 car

Thanks for the help guys! Im almost positive the valve stems are rubber but I will double check.

So if I dont have this what do they need to transfer from the aftermarket wheels back to the stockies? anything?

Nope, just swap em over. You'll get £100 for a set of TPMS sensors if you can get them off.
