Question TPMS question

I just bought a set of wheels and tires from AM with the TPMS kit and after installing the tires and putting my stock wheels in storage my low pressure light has not come on since installing my new wheels and tires. Can the system in the car automatically sense the new TPMS in the tires. I know the light and system works in the car I had a slow leak a few months ago and the light came on. Has this happened to anyone else?

They apparently could. I bought some oem tpms sensors and installed them with my new wheels and they didn't have to program them. I guess they relearn on their own in some cases?

It's weird because I did the same thing with my '11 F150 and I had to have them programmed manually.

You have to sync the new sensors to your car. You can get the syncing tool from AM for 45$.

Most dealerships have the tool to sync them and doesn't take more than 5 mins. I know for some cars you can do it manually but I've never had any success with that wen I can't find the sync tool.

The sensors should've came with a DVD.
You had to turn the ignition key on and off a few times and press the brake. Not sure the exact sequence but the horn will honk and you have to press the button on the remote on each tire. The dash display will tell you which tire to do one at a time.
Weird the light didn't come on without doing it this way. My sensors are attached to the valve stems..

I got the sync tool but since my stock wheels and TPMS are off my car shouldn't the TPMS light be on? It has me confused since the original TPMS is nowhere near the car the light is not on.

For me the first month it took around 20 km of driving before it would come on. Now after almost 2 months it now comes on as soon as I start the car.

It took me a good while after I removed my stock wheels for the sensor light to go on. Probably over a few months.

So the sensors arent that sensitive then, or they're numb. Better get them checked out
