TPMS Reset Question.

Hello. I just got After market wheels with 2010 TPMS in it. But the vehicle had the same exact tail lights that I have on my 08! I

I installed the wheels. When I was driving TPMS Malfunction light came on the dash and also to idrive. And then I came home and tried to reset it when the car is OFF. So it says Resetting and stays like that!

First Question Do I have to start the car for reset process?

And also I connected to ISTA. I got the errors due to TPMS. I deleted the errors. And then I look at the TPM module with ISTA. ISTA sees the temperature of the wheels, How many bar and psi on the tires!

So that shows me there is TPMS and OBD can see them! So whats going on? Thank you!

Garage List
They should work with the car off. I would put some more tires. I use the tire inflator machine that comes with the car, or look at the vin sticker on the driver side door. I would inflate, drive around and reset the TPMS. See what happens. Could be the TPMS is faulty

The first reset with a set of newly installed TPMS can take quite a bit of driving. Hit the reset in your iDrive when stopped, and drive around...Mine took about 14 miles to finally go all green.

TPMS sensors are different between 2008 and 2010 model cars.

So do you think ISTA can read the sensor even is not compatible for my vehicle from the OBD II ?

I know of no way to make sensors from a 2008 car work with a 2010 car, sorry.

So I wanted to swap my previous tpms with the current wheels. TirePlus askin for $150 for this process. SO what is the possibility of getting a 2010+ TPMS receiver and install this to any corner of the fender and do the trick?

I do know that 2010+ TPMS uses only one receiver instead of 4 each corner!

has anyone tried this? Thank you!

My question will be since my vehicle is 2008, it has been almost 8 years. Should I replace the tpms instead of swapping them? Or it is worth since have a low millage on them? (36k). What I read was they usually go bad after 6 -7 years. I will be upset if they go bad after 4-5 months!

And what is the possibility of rebuilding this TPMS? has anyone ever tried?

Thank you. I ordered Huf Tpms and already received them last week. I scheduled for tomorrow to be installed by PepBoys. And they came preprogrammed according to my seller. He said no need programming just play and plug.

I appreciated tho

Only my worry is hope they are going to replace the tpms without any scratch or problem I ve heard not everyone can do a good job on custom wheels, I told them to use plastic tips when you are removing the tires.

And you are welcome

Ideally, you'd find a good wheel shop you can trust. Years ago, I used to use local Discount Tire shops. However, one of them gouged up my brand new factory wheels--huge, deep gash on barrel from obviously removing wheel weights with a metal tool. When I pointed it out, they claimed they were only supposed to use plastic tools. Ultimately, they wanted to repair the wheel instead of replacing it as they should've. I gave them another chance. They did the same thing. Never again. Now, I trust _all_ my wheel work to my local independent wheel guy. He's never damaged a wheel even once!

This was the only part that I can not do by myself So I gave a shot to PePBoys and the guy did a phenomenal job. I mean the rear driver side got a little bit mark on it but I watched him. He took his time and did it about 2 and half hours and put rags all around this machine. He was extremely gentle but very professional. But the thing is they saw my car and they are like this is like a brand new car so they really realized how obsessive I am and I told them before I gave my key I do not want half fast job and I do not want any scratch or dent. Overall they didn't even drive the car inside they want me to drive

SO I am extremely happy right now. And the TPMS that I got worked like a charm without programming.

Now I have 2010+ TPMS for sale
