Tpms

Does everyone with aftermarket tires and rims just live with the tpms light staying on? I know all of my after market rims had valve stem sensors. A week later the tpms light comes on and won't go off. Ford wants to charge 120$ to sync sensors and discount tires says it can run up to $280. That makes me sick!

I got valve stem sensors with my new tires and wheels and have been unable to retrain the TPMS by either the bleed method or the train tool.

So I turned the damn thing off with my Mini Maxx TPMS dongle.

Wish I had a h&s to turn it off. I don't even have the retrain tool. I called the dealership an they completely ignored the fact that it should've come with it. I even read the book, it says if its not there call the deaership for replacement. I think those tpms sensors are just another way to scam us.

If you have a 250, you don't get the tool. The 350 gets the tool because the front and rear tires are set to different pressures.

Same exact issue on my 2010 F350, I even tried Ford OEM TPMS sensors and a set of aftermarket ones...could not get either of them to relearn to truck. I used the Ford training tool and several other retrain tools at shop. Bought the TPMS adapter for my H&S tuner and turned the stupid TPMS system off....no more issue.

I hate having something that doesn't work as it is supposed to , but fortunately H&S came through.

It's too bad none of you guys with the sensor is willing to lend it to those who would like to use it quick. I would even throw in cash upon sending it back for the troubles.
