Default 2005 A8 TPMS Sensor help

HELP!!!

Hi gang, I have a 2005 A8 and when I bought the car a little over a year ago the TPMS Sensor batteries were dead. I have been staring at the damn flat tire icon for over a year. I just got some new tires and ordered the TPMS Sensors from OEWheels and had them put in with the tire change. Problem is I bought the 315 MHz sensors instead of the 433 MHz sensors. Is there a way to change the TPMS receiver's frequency to 315 MHz? I don't have VAG-COM so I can't play with it. I really don't want to order a new set of the right sensors to replace the wrong ones. Any advice???

Please advise,

Bob

Has to be done with VCDS Audi A8 (4E) Tire Pressure Monitoring - Ross-Tech Wiki

Vaguely recall that the receivers may need to be changed as well [could be wrong], but I'd try changing the coding first.

I have the same issue with my tire sensors and I suspect it's the batteries. How do you know what sensors to buy at what Mhz?

US TPMS is usually 433MHz.
Your PR codes [on sticker in book and/or spare tire well] will list them.

Also your VCDS coding will tell you.
