Tpms Receiver / Monitor Location

2008 Eclipse 2.4l engine 212k miles

Anyone know where the ECU receiver / monitor module for the tpms is located?
I checked behind the glove box but didn't see anything that looks like the new one.

My 06 Eclipse doesn’t have TPMS but I know on my gf’s 11 Ford Fusion that they all connect to the SJB/GEM (Smart Junction Box/Generic Electronic Module) module, Ford’s Body Control Module (BCM) which also handles the keyless entry fob wireless requests too

So my guess is that TPMS usually communicates with the cars BCM, on the eclipse it’s called the ETACS

Its a separate unit on the 08....
So far no sign of the unit.
I have looked over the engine compartment
Behind the glove box
behind the rear seat
Under the rear seat

I suspect its under the center console but I havent had the time to pull that apart.

I asked the service center but they didn't know either.

So you program it via OBD2 tool or is there a sequence to enter programming mode?

So far it looks like relearn is with a tool using an direct obdii cable link but I haven't had the time yet to deal with that part of it yet. Dealer cost is like 40.00 and the tool is 400.00 but the closest dealer is over a hours drive each way so I may decide to spring for the tool if I can't find a better option.

YEAH I know it's a lot for a stupid light that matters little but it does offend my sense of rightness... 🤗

Yeah I’m glad my 06 doesn’t have TPMS, definitely a pain in the butt on some cars to program those things and expensive to replace the sensors when the batteries die or the whole sensor breaks

Some cars like Fords are easy to reprogram, little song and dance of brake pedal presses and key turns and the car/truck goes into programming mode and you go FL, FR, RR, RL holding this $25 sender tool up against each tire till the horn beeps for each tire and you’re done

Other cars like Tesla will automatically learn your TPMS sensors because there’s a receiver around each wheel well so each corner of the car has a sensor that can receive the TPMS sensor data closest to it and it’ll pop up a message on the screen saying “new tires detected, select rim size” and that’s it
