But those sensors ARE OEM. IE part of the car as built by Honda, not aftermarket accessories.

In my case the factory sensor was damaged because the aftermarket TPMS sensor on the end of the valve stem extended beyond the wheel rim and caught in the car wash mechanism.

My valve stems were about $41 each so I guess I got lucky on that!

Actually, the Honda TPMS did work, but the whole thing happened so fast that I didn't notice the warning light on the dash. I didn't hear any audible warning, but I could have just missed it.

The cause of the problem was the extra sensors screwed on the end of the valve stems, not the valve stems themselves.
