TMPS

I had no idea that switching away from my stock tires would cause the warning light to stay on. What can I do to correct this?

Buy the sensors, have your tires taken off, install sensor, reinstall tires, put back on car. Problem solved.

Re: TMPS

Thanks for that info
So if I want to make the light go away I will need to purchase these?
Universal Mustang TPMS Sensor Mounting Band at AmericanMuscle.com - Free Shipping!

If I still want to use the TMPS I need these?
Universal Mustang TPMS Sensor Mounting Band and Bracket (Set of Two) at AmericanMuscle.com - Free Shipping!

Sorry I'm new to the TMPS set-up I've never had a TMPS on my cars before.

By what I have read, the bands are known to break taking then off the stock wheels.

The top link takes the sensors from your stock wheels and the bracket from your stock wheels, but replaces the band The second uses your stock sensor but gives you a new bracket and band.

Both of those still require you to remove your wheels and tires install those and reinstall.

They also sell the whole kit where you get the sensors and bands and everything, but they are expensive.

By buying the whole kit you can reuse your old wheels if you need or resell them.

So go with the second link. I sold the stock tires and rims as soon as I put my Motegi rims on and didn't know about the sensors before hand

If your mustang is '07 - '09 you'll have to buy a relearning tool. It's like $45 along with the new sensors. If you have the dealer install them or a reputable tire shop, they'll probably have the tool and be able to relearn them for you.

The second link did not have the sensors, you are going to have to find the bands, brackets and sensors. Find that and have a reputable shop put them on and your in business.

Those would work and they have the tool to sync with your car with them. Also have instructions on how to sync which is important.

What sucks is that Ford ran both types of TMPS sensors (Band & Valve stem) in the '07-'09. It would help a lot if you knew which ones were on your old wheels. Maybe if you contact the dealer and give them your VIN they could give a a reference number to the right part?

Thanks for all of the replies. I will contact the dealer tomorrow and ask them before I spend money on something I don't need.

The other question is, does it matter which one it had on originally? When you call ask if it matters. You might be able to use either.

I've been so distracted y'all didn't even tell me that it's TPMS hahahahaha. I found out today that I need 4 bands and sensors to make the system complete.
