There are several types available for service on today’s vehicles:

OE replacement sensors – Identical to the original equipment and pre-programmed for the specific vehicle.

Programmable or ‘universal’ sensors – These aftermarket sensors come as blanks and require programming for the specific vehicle prior to installation. It’s an additional service step requiring a programming tool with specialized software.

Multi-application / Multi-protocol sensors – These aftermarket sensors have TPMS protocols for multiple vehicle applications pre-loaded at the factory. There’s no need to upload protocols in the shop.
