2008 Vantage.
I need new sensors at the wheels. Are there any after market with proven quality or must I go directly to Aston for replacements?


Thanks folks!

Each wheel sensor has an ID. If you get new Aston sensors which I believe are part number CG33-360671-AA and you have the older SmartTire system only the dealer can reprogram the car to talk to the sensors. Newer Aston's have a self learning system. There are two other alternatives, with care you can replace batteries inside sensors - there is YouTube video that shows this. Another alternative is to use an aftermarket sensor that can be cloned to match the ID of each individual sensor on the car. See this discussion for that option: https://www.6speedonline.com/forums/aston-martin/416049-smartire-tpms-cloning-replacement.html -

The AM sensors are very expensive ( $241 each !! ), then you add dealer fee, that's over a 1K -- I plan to try and clone the sensors when I replace tires. Another alternative is you can get a disable harness for the TPMS system and go back to manually checking tires like the old days.

Note - if you want to clone the sensors with a system like Autel they need to be still working or you have to be able to read off the ID from the sensor inside the tire. I plan to read out my sensors soon just so I have the data when I need to replace them.

Guys, I want to thank all of you for your great advice. Scuderiacarparts seems to be quite a helpful place with fair prices.
There was mention of a harness that negates the TP system. Where can this be acquired? That sounds like the most practical way to go.
Thanks again... I am obliged to all.

You can also shut down the system, Pull out the white plug under the glove box, if the error message hasn't gone yet you have to remove three cables from the plug and tie them together with tape so that they touch each other. only the blue red wire should remain connected.

tire pressure sensor advice

I want to thank all of you gentleman once more. THANK YOU!

I've now installed the RedPants "bypass" harness. Took about thirty seconds and did the trick.
I tend to check my tire pressure quite frequently so not having the instrument panel tell me the PSI is not a big deal.

Much obliged men!
