as an ex tyre fitter i know of a few tricks they do if they have broke the sensor valve, the main one is to tape or glue it to the wheel of the rim so the signal is still picked up by the car, but also if you have alloy wheels you may be leaking round the rim, or the wheel may be porrous and allowing a loss of pressure. easy way to check is to make a very soapy mix of washing up liquid and water and pour over a slightly over inflated rim, and watch for bubbles. best way to make the mix i found is to mix with hot water and leave out side to get really cold, found loads of missed punctures on trucks and plant machines this way.

also forgot to say if you have alloy wheels and leaking round rim/bead get your original tyre fitting to use Rim Seal and wire brush round the rim to remove erosion which can cause bead leaks
