Default Tire Pressure Sensor Battery Life Info

I found this while doing some research and thought it might interest somebody here.

These sensors are great for the people who think that if they have to add non-factory air, they will void their warranty.

Here's some useful information on TPM sensors:

SLEEP MODE - A new TPM sensor will be in this mode. If placed on the vehicle as a road tire, the TPM sensor will transmit once every 20 seconds when the vehicle is driven at speeds over 15 mph (24 km/h). If the vehicle is not moving, the sensor will only transmit on a pressure change greater then 1 psi (6.9 kPA). Driving the vehicle continuously at speeds over 15 mph (24 km/h) for more then 4 minutes will change the sensor state into 30 BLOCK MODE. The TPM sensor will not return to SLEEP MODE. Now, if the vehicle has been stopped for 20 minutes, the TPM sensor state will change to PARK MODE.

PARK MODE - This is the correct operating mode when the vehicle is not moving. The sensor will transmit once every 13 hours to update the WCM, or will transmit on a 1 psi (6.9 kPa) delta change. The sensors will internally take a measurement of the tire pressure every minute to determine a change in tire pressure.

30 BLOCK MODE - If the vehicle has been stopped for more then 20 minutes, or if the sensorís operating mode was forced to PARK MODE using a TPM-RKE Analyzer, the sensorís operating mode will transition from PARK MODE to 30 BLOCK MODE once the vehicle is driven over 15 mph (24 km/h). In this mode, the sensor will transmit once every 15 seconds when the vehicle is driven at speeds over 15 mph (24 km/h) for the first 30 transmissions. After about 10 minutes of continuous driving above 15 mph (24 km/h), the sensorís mode will change to DRIVE MODE.

DRIVE MODE - In this mode, the sensor will transmit once every minute when the vehicle is driven at speeds over 15 mph (24 km/h). Anytime the vehicle speed drops below 15 mph (24 km/h), the sensor mode will still be in Drive Mode, but will not transmit until the vehicle reaches speeds over 15 mph (24 km/h) once again. If the vehicle has been stationary for more then 20 minutes, the sensor state will transition to Park Mode.
