Default Tpms not reading sensors

Hope someone on here has an idea cause my dealer is telling me I need new sensors??

Here's the deal....

I had the forged Optional OE rims on my 09 with tire rack sensors and they worked great.
Fast forward to today, I had the optional rims and new Michelins installed today using the same sensors that had been on the 09.
Truck display showed tire pressure for about 20mins after having rims put on then told me to service tire pressure monitor and low air pressure?
Returned to dealer to have the sensors reprogrammed for the 2013 computer and was told they won't work?
Can anyone that has switched their rims confirm this for me please.
Rather not spend 450 on new wheel sensors if they aren't needed
Many thanks!!!

Generally the most common issue with TPMS sensors and switching across model years, is the frequency that they operate. Sensors from 09 may have used a frequency that is being interfered with by another system or component on your 13.

I swapped my dick cepek torque wheels and duratracs as part of the trade. Sensors didn't work so I went back to the dealer and they just handed me 4 new ones in a bag and told me I had to have them installed. Took discount tire 20 min. Deflated and broke bead, swapped sensors, no more issues. The 09 and 13 have different thread patterns and sensor frequencies.

Dealers charge 100 bucks for each sensor, discount tire sells them for 60$, find the right MHz and model # and you can get them on eBay for 20-40 buck a piece . The 2013 are 433nhz I think.

Discount Tire has the same Hand Held Programmer the the dealership uses

just go to Discount Tire & have them program yours into the Rams system

Personally, i changed my STOCK rims & tires TPMS over to a a after market brand rims & better tires, Discount Tire just Flashed them to work with my new setup
