Tpms

If switch oem wheels with tpms sensors from a 2012 to a 2013 would I need to reprogram the tpms or would they work fine?

To my knowledge yes, they must be matched to your vehicle.

Ok that'll be worse case scenario I guess. Do u have an idea about how much I should be looking to pay to have a shop reprogram it? I really hope they just learn it since there both oem ford tpms! *crosses fingers*

I have no idea how much they charge. They definitely will not just learn.

It take a couple of driving cycles for it to realize they aren't programmed and then it will set a permanent code in your computer that comes on everytime you turn the car on.

When I took them off the car and drove with no tpms it took about 25miles for the code to come on. But the ones I swapped I drove for 200miles & no code.

You may have been lucky, but in most cases (99.9%) the light will come on. Its really simple to do. Most tire shops have a universal scan tool and they simply reprogram the tpms with the new car info. Takes maybe 15-30 mins depending on how much of a pain the tpms is to pick up (some universal scanners are a joke). I did it for free when I worked at BJ's wholesale club's tire center. If you find a good tire shop they'll probably do the same. I can't see anyone charging more then $10-$15 to do it though.

Yea I'm gonna try a tire shop or ford & see what they'll charge me to reprogram them. I might just buy the tool to just have it.
Here's what I found..
When I swapped out the tpms for the v6 I swapped them from one set of wheels to the another & put the wheels with tpms back on the car & no code came on after (200+ miles) maybe the light came on after but I trade it on so I couldn't be able to say!
Now on the 5.0 I put wheels with no TPMS for a while (200+ miles) & the light came on..then when I put other wheels with the tpms the light hasn't gone away & it's been 1K+ miles!
