Getting my TPMS sensors from my Honda Dealer. For winter rims. Are they cloning them now or does the Ridgeline have the ability of storing 2 different sets of TPMS sensors for summer and winter rims?

I've bought 4 new tpms from honda at a decent price. from my understanding there was no "jobber" available for our model when I purchased them. you have nothing to do with the tpms, and nothing with the vehicule. it simply just work !

What's a jobber? And is the the TPMS specific to the Ridgeline meaning will another TPMS work from another Honda model?

The truck does not store TPMS info, it is read-as-you-go.

This means you can have an endless amount of wheel sets. There is no limit.
But does the dealer need to do anything, because they charged a fee for " Re Learning " or something like that. :frown:'

Nope, nothing they need to do. I would go back and ask for a refund.

I asked the dealer and they said there is a relearn for the TPMS. Not sure if it matters but these are new Honda TPMS sensors in new winter steel rims so not sure if that makes a difference. I don't know for sure if they know :crying:

Put it this way. I had OEM sensors installed on after market wheels and brought them home leaving them in my garage waiting for winter. When winter showed it's face, I installed the wheels in my garage and drove off. They registered in a matter of minutes. Nobody taught or programmed anything. Go to your local Honda dealer and get the info from them in writing if you do not believe us.

My gut feeling is the bozos who installed yours thought they needed to program them, went through the entire process and thought what they did was why they worked. Probably just used the sequence required for a Gen 1. Little did they know, nothing needed to be done.

My gut feeling is they don't even know because the service rep had to go ask the salesman who sold me the Ridgeline when I asked him about the charge. He said the only Ridgeline who didn't need a relearn was the Black Edition for some reason.
