2020 Jeep Wrangler 2 Door Sport S
Hello,
So, like any Wrangler owner, I purchased new tires and wheels for my Wrangler JL. When I did this, I did not purchase sensors because I just wanted to transfer the ones I had because I know the Jeep would read them without any problems. I got the tires and wheels shipped to a nearby Firestone. They were already mounted and balanced and just needed the sensors to be put in. I proceeded to tell them this three times; when I dropped the car off, when they called me to pick the car up, and when I got there to pick it up. Well, they let me drive away without putting the sensors in my wheels... and I didn't find this out until I got on the highway and my tire light came on.

Now I work at a dealership (not Jeep) and they proceeded to tell me I could put aftermarkets in the new ones and leave the old sensors in my stock wheels that way it's not a pain to switch up wheels in the winter. Well I purchased the aftermarket sensors and my dealership was kind enough to put them in. Well they are not reading with my Jeep and I'm very confused as to why. I was told I need a tool that had a capability to program 2020 Jeeps so they sensors will read with the car. Is this true? Or do I need to just bite the bullet and get the Mopars?

Do I need stock sensors or can I stick with the aftermarkets?

P.S. I now want to keep the old sensors in the stock wheels, one, because I don't feel like bringing all 5 tires back to Firestone and two, because I do think it's a good idea when switching them up for winter so my nice wheels don't get ruined.

Did you get the correct sensors? Our Wranglers use 433Mhz and the older Jeeps, pre 2013, used something in the 315Mhz band. There are also some issues I've heard of people not having good luck with some of the cheaper, aftermarket sensors.
