Hmmm...well...that ebay link is for Autel MX-Sensors...which are Autel's programmable (clone-able) version of a TPMS sensor. I have one sitting here on my desk next to my Autel TS501 TPMS tool...

For any other Mitsubishi it is not a big deal. There is something about the TPMS functionality of the Mirage ETACS module that makes it difficult/impossible for most aftermarket tools to be used on a Mirage.
I've been emailing back and forth with Autel's Chinese engineers because my Autel tool cannot read/write sensor IDs from the ETACS module. Eventually they had to admit that this can't be done on the Mirage with the tool I have. It works on other makes/models...but not a Mirage?!?
Most shops are cloning sensors now because it's the easiest way to put replacement sensors on a car. If you clone them, you never have to worry about messing with the car's TPMS module to re-learn new sensors. That means you don't have to have expensive scan tool software for all the various makes/models out there.
...this whole process is overly complex, even if the sensors were cloned.
Either way we're going to learn something new from your experience. $100 for a set of 4 TPMS sensors is a great deal.
