I guarantee you your average tire shop is going to charge double that for a TPMS sensor and yes.. tire shops include the programming- if they can get them programmed.

I tied Dorman and Gorilla brand on my Honda to no avail. Tire shops couldn't get them programmed, tying several thousand dollars worth of hand held TPMS programmers. Dealer only for Honda, thus my gun-shyness. Dealers most certainly won't program them for free.

I'm a service manager for Firestone so free for me. We typically don't charge a customer for resets. Literally takes seconds in most vehicles. Customers are happy and become loyal to the business after providing this service to them. Also, my Dorman's reset just like my oem's without a hitch.
