TPMS nightmare!!! Please help!!!

Ok here goes, I bought my jeep in 13 put aftermarket wheels and tires on it. The tpms sensors didn't work that I got with the wheels and tires, brought it 2 different places and they could not figure out how to program, brought to town fair tire they told me the wrong sensors were in it. They put new ones in they didn't work, they said they were the wrong year because the build date was in 12 even though it was sold as a 13 and reg as a 13. They put 13's in still didnt work. They said they can't figure out why and I need factory sensors. $500 later they put factory sensors in. I drove it for about 25 min and 3 out of the 4 are working but the 4th isnt. Asked another tire shop they said it might be a bad sensor, WTF!!!! I literally have a g note into Fing sensors at this point and all of this is holding up selling the jeep to a buyer who already put down a deposit. Can anyone give me any advise? Do I need to drive it longer? I have 5 sensors (one in the spare) should I put the spare on where the 4th sensor is not reading?

I think the computer reads all five sensors. If you put the bad sensor in the spare, won't it still read it and give you a low air light? Maybe not, I don't have the dumbass sensors in mine, ditched them years ago.

Maybe find a used ProCal and turn the TPMS off.

BFM for the win

Not sure if that's going to help though the buyer specifically said he wants the TPMS working because its for his teenage daughter.

This is exactly why I don't use aftermarket sensors. Mopars work 100% of the time. Unless they sold you the wrong year. The new current sensors work on 2012-2015 so they are backwards compatible.

every sensor needs to be the same or it will throw everything off. toss all of the sensors in ur spare tire on the back if its still stock or get a programmer to disable the sensors.. thats what i did with the procall from AEV when i got it with my lift. other then that.. light will always be on.
