Important Tire Rotation Note. When rotating tires that are equipped with TPMS sensors, it is important to reuse the TPMS Transmitter Tool to recalibrate the sensors. By rotating your tires, you are changing the physical location of the sensors and your car's computer will need to update to be aware of this location change. Failure to do so will result in inaccurate and incorrect low tire pressure monitoring.

I use summer and snow tires and have been switching them myself for years. When I realized I needed this tool to stop the "reminder" light on my new car, I instantly got it. It was simple and straightforward ... to perform. The DVD was a nice touch, but a simple instruction sheet would have sufficed.
Hi I’m Justin with AmericanMuscle.com, and this is TPMS 101. This video is going to show you everything you need to know about the TPMS sensors in your 2007 and up Mustang, why you need them, how to wire them, and most importantly how to sync them up to your ride. For those of you who don’t know, TPMS stands for tire pressure monitoring system and is standard equipment on all 2007 and up Mustangs. The actual sensor itself is located on the bottom of each of your valve stems, located on all 4 wheels. As you might have guessed, the whole purpose of this system is simply to alert you, the driver, when tire pressures reach an unsafe level, plain and simple. So why do you need them? Well, if you buy a new set of wheels and tires and you don’t install TPMS sensors, you will trigger a warning light on your dash, which depending on your state laws, could cause you to fail your vehicle inspection. Ok, so that covers the what and the why, so now let’s cover how you order them, it’s actually pretty simple. If you’re ordering one of our pre-built tire and wheel combinations, simply click on the TPMS kit dropdown box located on all tire and wheel combination pages. At this point, you’ll simple want to select the correct generation, whether it’s an 07-09, or 2010 and up. This kit will include all the sensors which are preinstalled on all your wheels, the TPMS syncing tool, along which a DVD with step-by-step instructions on how to sync the sensors to your ride. When it does come time to sync your new sensors to your ride you’ll need a couple of things, of course you’ll need your TPMS syncing tool along with your key. A couple of important pointers before we get started with this process, the TPMS syncing tool works on a specific radio signal, so you’ll want to make sure you don’t have any cell phones, walkie talkies, or radios around that could possibly cause any interference. Second, you’ll want to make sure you do this process about 10-20 feet away from other vehicles, again just to avoid any problems. To begin the syncing process, insert the key into the ignition and turn the key from the off to the on position 3 times, the third time leaving the key in the on position, without actually starting the car. With the key in the on position, press the brake pedal to the floor and then release it. At this point turn the key from the off to the on position 3 more times, once again leaving it in the on position the third and final time. At this point you should hear the horn honk to indicate that the TPMS sensors are ready to be synced to your ride, using the TPMS syncing tool. With the key still in the on position, head to the left front tire. You’ll need to hold the syncing tool to the valve stem making sure the arrow on the tool is aligned with the valve itself, hold the green button down and wait for the horn to honk, this means the tire has been synced to your ride properly. Repeat that step for the right front, the right rear, and finally the left rear. If you forget the order, just look at the display in the speedometer, it will tell you what tire to sync next. If you’re having problems with the sensors not being detected and the horn doesn’t sound in the syncing process, then deflate all 4 tires and let the car sit for 5 minutes, after that reinflate the tires to the manufacturers recommended PSI, then restart the syncing process. Since the wheels and TPMS sensors are programmed specifically for each location, you will need to resync your TPMS sensors every time you rotate your tires, otherwise you’ll receive inaccurate readings that could trigger a warning light. If you follow the detailed instructions I talked about here and on the included DVD, you should have no problems getting your TPMS sensors synced to your ride properly. As always if you do encounter a problem, give us a call, one of our AmericanMuscle customer service reps will be happy to help you out. View Full Transcript
TPMS Transmitter Tool When you buy a new set of wheels. I know you will need four Ford Mustang Valve Stem-Mounted TPMS Sensor (10-13 All). But you only need one of the TPMS Transmitter Tool to sync all the sensors to your car computer right.
I have an 07 GT500 with 2012-13 wheels on it. Will this program the new sensors to my 07 computer??
Does this affect any aftermarket tuning?

It worked great!!
I was suprised when I got it that it was a real ford tool. The DVD was easy to follow. I was able to program for my new wheels in less than 1 minute. It was worth the money just to not have to take my car in.

I bought a new set of wheels/tires along with new TPMS sensors and had my local tire store mount and balance the wheels. I installed the wheels myself and ordered the TPMS Transmitter so I could retrain my system... the process was very simple and worked great! DVD explained the procedure and the product worked as described I was done in less than 10 mins including watching the video. Thanks A/M!

The shipping and delivery were quick and convenient. A fair price too, especially compared to the Dealer price. The video provided was very helpful, and the tool performed as expected, first try. Could not have been a better experience. Thanks!

As easy as it gets!
For some inexplicable reason I put this off for months. I wish I would have bought this the day after I changes wheels/tires and not have dealt with the tire pressure warnings for months. This literally took me 1 minute to do all 4 wheels! The easiest thing I've ever heard of.

The Dealer wanted $105 to do this job. I bought this tool and the job was done in less then two minutes trouble free. The tool gets 5 stars.........shipping gets 1 star. It took me 3 weeks to get it.

It is not necessary for the 2015 Mustang. They will relearn new tpms sensors. This product likely works but there needs to be a note on the product. Definitely don't recommend it when selling rims for 2015 mustangs. Thats the reason I purchased it.

Instructional video with good old Justin from AmericanMuscle.com was very helpful, and explained the simple process very well. Somebody mentioned tapping the break once before the first time you turn the key three times, so I did that too just to be safe. The transmitter comes with some Velcro, so you can stick it somewhere and always know where it is. How thoughtful. ;)

Works just as if you went to a Ford dealer! The DVD instruction guide eliminates all of the guess work!

Simple. Literally took longer to watch the video. And the video was very explanatory
