TPMS SUCKS! Here's How To Fix It Yourself *Probably*

SERVICE TIRE PRESSURE MONITORING SYSTEM is a message you don't want to see, and when you do it's not the easiest thing to diagnose at home. Let's take some of the mystery out of it by talking about how it works, then trying to fix it in practice. Even with the right tools you might not get it on the first try, but if you use the right sensor for the job (or the Autel MX sensors) you'll get it everytime.

Common Questions:
What motorcycle do I ride? A few. Ducati 1198, Honda Goldwing, Honda Grom, Honda Ruckus
What do I do for a living? Make AM-posts videos.
Can you wheelie? No, I suck.
Are you fast? Sort of. I suck mostly though.
Where can I keep up with you off the bike?

Do you go to school? College, for 2 classes.
Why do you ride so dangerously? What do mean? I was doing 25.
Do you go to the track? Of course, hopefully there will be videos in the future.
Do you play video games? No, but I might stream N64 Goldeneye at some point. Twitch: WatchJRGo
Are you afraid the police will watch your videos and arrest you? Something something evidence something something warrants and due process of law

For the record, you can also use the TS508 to write TPMS sensor IDs straight from the tool via the OBD II cable and Advanced mode.

Im from Canada and its not a requirement to have tpms in Canada but i bought a car from usa and there was some TPMS on it and i totally agree TPMS Sucks this is the worst cheap gadget ever and its quite expensive you need to have it on all the 4 wheels you need a tpms professional reset tool + a odb2 scanner to reset it and here in Canada you need a set of summer tire and a set of winter tire but let me tell you its way less expensive to install a good old valve but dam its annoying to hear the bip noice and the tpms light on the dashboard i only wish i could unplug that thing from my honda pilot touring even if its sometime usefull to see the tire pressure i could get ride of those sensor and life without it..

Most TPMS units are located under the seats and can be unplugged. This removes the hassle of dealing with it ever again. Unless you drive a high performance vehicle, its a useless thing in my book. As a car gets older, the units battery dies. Why do they charge so much. Crap.

The Marine Corps used a Central Tire Inflation System on 5 ton trucks in the early 90’s. The driver could drop the pressure with a switch on the dash when coming off a ship or landing craft so it can drive thru the soft sand then raise the pressure when they got on a hard road. It had three settings on it.

I don't understand why people bitch and moan about TPMS. They're awesome, especially if your car can actually display the pressure readings. They need to be replaced every 5-7 yrs, but that's just part of owning a vehicle.

TPMS you deal with as you have to. Sometimes even the experts mess up. On my Buick they reversed the sensor so the right front showed on the right rear, the left front showed on the left rear. I had to reprogram it to get it right but lacked the tools to do it - so I had to take it to the mechanic for him to do it. Fortunately, no charge for his mistake. They are great however when they works correctly. Who puts Subaru sensors on a Toyota? That is a problem in itself.

When you're scanning the sensors, best method is to scan it from the rubber. Since the rims can be blocking the frequencies sometime

Hate TPMS - If you can't afford multi-$1000 scan tools you are stuck guessing. My granddaughter's car kept showing TPMS warning, which stressed her out terribly. She would have the tire pressure checked and all four tires were fine, but the warning would remain. I happened to mention this to the counter man at AutoZone when I was buying some oil. He suggested to check the spare, and sure enough, it was almost flat. Nowhere in the manual does it say the spare remains part of the active TPMS while you are driving. Most people give no thought to the spare tire until they have a flat.

Try Kia here is the royal pain in the $&@ in 2013 -2017 Kia souls. Here is why the sensors are locked to the radio Bluetooth system. Now imagine the radio fails in your car or a fuse burns out your car goes into limp mode and the service engine light comes on and the tpms kicks on it’s light on the 2013 soul it also blows the throttle body sensor have fun that’s a 200.00 part alone

Loved the TPM system on my former 2004 Toyota Sienna. It did not required any sensors on the tires (it monitored tire rotation). Never failed me in the 10 years I owned that vehicle. Never understood why the move to sensor-inside-tire/rim. I heard it was government mandated.

You dont even need the fancy programming tools for a GM... put the key to run, press and hold lock and unlock on the fob to enter tpms relearn mode... then go around and let air out of each tire until the horn beeps... the vehicle will light up the turn signal on what corner to do the tire

Same thing for Toyota/Lexus you have to use OEM sensors from dealer otherwise won't sync correctly
s.q 5 ամիս առաջ
for anyone trying to fix TPMS on a LEXUS you HAVE to buy the oem ones which are like 100$ each from the dealer otherwise they will not sync with your Lexus. I wasted 3 sets from eBay claiming OEM and while they did work (meaning car detected them , programmed etc and light went away) BUT they did not show the actual PSI of the each tire on my dash. I ended up buying 4 OEM TPMS sensors from Lexus for about ~400, got them installed, programmeded and the PSI started showing on the dash again. Lexus makes everything easy except dealing with the TPMS sensors lol

My Audi just tells me which tire on which side but not the pressure that it's fallen to. I have a 12 volt air inflator in the trunk just in case a tire goes low. Just inflate to proper pressure, reset the system and it's back to normal very quickly. It's less sophisticated "technically" compared to other systems that tell you each tire's individual pressure # but those systems can also be a headache as the pressures constantly change making you unsure of it's final warm pressure vs starting cold pressure.

most fire shops I know cant yet those trpm S sensors off fast enough.thar junk!ive on multiple Dodge vehicles had problems with them and lot of people that I know who work with tires have the exact same the metal ones keep snapping off which results in you Having a flat,2 the things leek like ass!!!!! I've seen them brand-new constantly continue to leek .and you keep fighting with them or after they've been on the vehicle about six months they start leaking and doesn't seem to be any way to get them to stop.ive last track Many times a leaking tire turned out to be one of those metal valve tpms. 9 out of 10 times I've got a leaking tire it's always one of those metal valve stem.t.hay also like to quit working after about eight months. the vehicles I have all they do it regularly annoying light on doesn't even tell you which weal. all so you usually have to go to the Dodge dealership an.d Panera hundred dollars a wheel if you want them installed in program

More unnecessary technology to break and replace. Why not just check the air in your tires instead of being a lazy f**k. I check my tires often. Don't need this crap. My car electronically releases the trunk latch, no using the key. Another unnecessary thing that'll break eventually.

In my experiences with TPMS vehicles, the system runs on relative pressures to all tires. If all tires lose air at the same rate, the light will almost never come on. I can see a benefit in being able to view tire pressures on a menu screen, but the ones that don't have this ability are worthless systems, and work like I described earlier. Also, little things like this are why cars are more expensive today.

Tpms is just another Gov mandated accessory that should be an option, they regularly fail and at 30 to 100 dollars to have fixed each it's much cheaper to buy a tire pressure gauge and check yourself 3 or 4 times a year! Especially if they dont tell you what pressure is required!

For the Prius, if you have the right sensors, you should get a mini-VCI cable and Techstream software to program them in using a laptop. He should probably get that anyways, it does more than most of the CAN readers/programmers you can get. . Also, if the 3G Prius is like the 2G (most likely), the Techstream software has an ID5 so he can get a sensor for the spare if he wants.
blaakrose 5 ամիս առաջ
Totally agree with you about tpms. My 2006 Hyundai doesn't have it. My 2016 Camry does have it and it shows the tire pressure. It definitely helps maintain proper air pressure in the tires.

The car is supposed to honk twice when you put it in relearn mode and then once after you scan each tire and then 2 more times when the relearn is done. And most of the time you have to put the car in relearn mode manually too

unless you do this for a living (work at the tire shop), just go to a mechanic. It cost around $25-$30 to program TPS sensors. No need for a $400 TPMS sensor and $2000 ODBII programer.

my 1994 Corvette had a basic tire monitor system. It let me know A tire was low going 75 on the interstate once. I pulled over, no tires seemed low, got back up to speed and sure enough, the drivers rear was going down. I put on the spare ( took me 15 minutes to find it ) and continued my move from SC to AL at 75 mph. Taking off was fun with a spare rear as it wanted to spin very easily and traction control was real aggressive in pulling back the throttle when it did. I have an 07 Elantra, no TPMS and got a flat pulling into a gas station on my trip from SC to AL for my HS reunion 10 years ago. Imports must have been exempt in 2006 since my 2007 doesn't have it.
