Also the other band types have not failed yet. I used fix-a-flat in the tire in which the sensor failed a long time ago, though I do not know if that has to do anything with the failure.
Good update.

Yes, the fix-a-flat will eventually clog the hole the sensor uses for checking the pressure. I know because that's what happened to me. It took about a year for it to happen but it happened. When I got my tires replaced I went ahead and got the Valve Stem style and replaced all four since I didn't want to mess with it again when batteries started to die.

The band style sensor that failed was all gummed up around the sensor holes.
08 S197 GT Auto: FRPP Strut Tower Brace, FRPP Bullitt CAI, Bama 91-P Tune, VBX remaned valve body with Superior Transmission Shift Kit.
Pending upgrades: Shaftmasters Aluminum 3.5" DS, FRPP 3.73 gears, Axle back exahust (?)
