How can your sensor be missing? Its part of the valve stem.

If the sensor has failed, then it needs to be replaced and reprogramed

should be a receiver in the wheel well, guessing that's the part that is bad.

The reciever is part of the keyless entry module. If the battery starts to fail in the sensor, it will loose it's ability to transmit a strong signal. thus causing an intermittant light. Doesn't matter where the tire is on the car, they have the ability to send the same signal the same distance. But if that battery is weak, the reciever gets a "fuzzy" signal and considers that a fault.

Also, check your tire pressures, if you have one that is more than 3 PSI different than the others it will turn the light on as well.

ugh, keyless entry module. Like there isnt enough issues with the RKE that it has to handle other things besides the door locks.

GM had a bulletin on the receivers and changed the antenna on these as well. Karen's 07 would show TPMS issues then go away and the remotes only worked if you were very close to the car.
now it is way better after they changed the stuff out.

yea u do gotta be real close to have remote work which then defeats point of it lol.. who woulda thought that a remote for the doors and engine start would have other signals involved.. i mean yea bunch signals all over car but to have it associated with the remote is dumb.. my dead grandma has said in her last placed she lived that when a plane would fly over sometimes it would open her garage door
