TPMS Reset Tool

Hey guys,

I just changed out my performance tires to a new snow tire set. The PSI is set to my recommended level. But the warning light for the "Tire Pressure Monitor Fault" won't turn off. Is there a way to reset the system to turn off the warning light? Or do I need a reset tool? (If the tool is required, is the attached pic the correct one?)

My Mustang is a '09 V6 auto transmission

Thanks!

The wheels are the same? You just changes the rear two? Who did the install? They should have checked it out and verified the system is working before giving it back to you, no?

I changed all 4. My bf installed them. We're pretty sure they have the sensors already, but haven't dismantled the tires to verify.

So, it's completely new wheels and tires then and you don't know if they have the TPMS installed? Sorry, just trying to get a better picture. You put snow tires on the front and the back?

No, they are not new. I bought them previously owned. They were used for one winter season. The owner sold them because he got rid of his Mustang. He said the tires had sensors built into them when he bought them. They are Cooper Weather-master brand

Well, before spending money on the tool I'd verify the sensors are actually there first...sellers of stuff will tell you anything to make a sale....

Is there a way I can test the tires myself to find out if they have the sensors installed?

That's the right tool. You can look up the process online on how to do it. Can't remember exactly. It's something along the lines of pressing and releasing the brake and cycling key 5 times or so and the horn will beep. Then you go to the driver side front tire first and so on.

Cool. Now all I need to do is verify if the tires have sensors. Maybe Town Fair Tire has a tool that can check for them

I'm not sure of the years but different years have different sensors. Sometimes they need to drive for a while (you didn't mention how far you drove) A small piece of tape to cover the warning light was my method when I had my winter shoes on.

Your car is a 2009, but what year are the wheels and tires from? I believe that the '09 uses a band sensor. Later years use a sensor in the fill valve. They are not compatible.

Strange, I've been driving with the light on for about 2 weeks now. I may just have to cover it with a piece of electrical tape if I can't figure out how to get it reset.

Jim, I got the tires from an '07 Mustang owner. But I'm not sure what year the tires are.

The tires don't matter. It's the wheels that matter. The sensors are part of the wheel, not the tire.

Ah. I'm not sure what year the wheels are either.

I went ahead and ordered the sensor reset tool. I guess I can try to reset them and if it turns out there aren't any sensors, I can probably use the tool later on if I end up needing it for a different set of tires.

I suppose as long as I monitor the PSI, I shouldn't have any problems until I switch back to my performance tire set.

That’s the way us old timers do it. never had a need for tpms. Check them periodically with a gauge.
