If your 2011 was a pre 09/10 build date, then yes, the sensors are a different frequency and won't be recognized. The sensors were changed on cars with an 09/10 build date or later.

Put mine on a few weeks ago, just before my shoulder surgery. Normally I would wait until mid or late November, depending on the weather outlook at that time. I'll switch them out again in April.

I haven't noticed any leakage, but then again I only have 10 K on the odometer. I do have a 7 year platinum warranty though, so hopefully I'll be good to go if it takes a dump.

Are you using the exact same key fob as the other day? Each fob would have different stored preferences. Did you grab the fob that you don't normally use?
