Hey guys, I'm Justin with AmericanMuscle.com. This video's designed to show you everything you need to know about the TPMS sensors in your 2015 and up Mustang, why you need them, how to order them, and how to sync them up to your ride. For those of who don't know, TPMS stands for tire pressure monitoring system, and it's something that was introduced on all cars in 2007. Now, the actual sensor itself is located on your valve stem. The sole purpose of this system and the sensor itself is to alert you, the driver, when tire pressures reach unsafe levels. Why do you need them? Well, if you purchase brand new after-market wheels and tires and you do not get the sensors installed, you will trigger a warning light on the dashboard. And depending on your state's laws, it might casue you to fail your local inspection. So that covers the what and the why. Now let's talk about how you order them. It's actually pretty simple. If you order any of our pre-built tire and wheel combo kits here at AmericanMuscle.com, or even the single wheel by themselves, you do get the option of either purchasing the TPMS sensors or the optional tool here from a dropdown menu. Now, one thing that is worth pointing out, if you have this tool from a previous generation Mustang or previous set of wheels, you do not need to order another one as it is universal. To start the syncing process with your 2015 and up Mustang, you're going to need the tool I just talked about along with your key fob. With the S197 you use the actual key to start the syncing process. But since the 2015 and up Mustangs utilize a start/stop button we'll use that instead. Before getting started, make sure your cell phone is turned off and that you're at least 20 feet from other vehicles, otherwise you might interfere with the syncing process. To start, press the brake pedal and then release it. After that, press the start/stop button three times, and on the third time, leave the car in the start or accessory-on position. Press the brake pedal again and release it. Repeat the process of hitting the start/stop button three times. On the third and final time, the car's horn should sound, letting you know you can start the syncing process. Leave the car in the start or accessory-on position. At this point, follow the directions on the dash. It will tell you what tire to train, starting with the front left or driver side tire. You'll need to aim the syncing tool at the valve stem making sure the arrow on the tool is aligned with the valve stem 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, right-rear and finally the left-rear. If you forget the order, just look at the display in the gauge cluster. It will tell you what tire to sync next. If everything is successful, you should see "training complete" on the dashboard, letting you know your TPMS sensors are functioning properly. As always, if you have any more questions about this process or need additional help, feel free to reach out to a Mustang expert anytime.

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.

If I am buying new rims and keeping the same tires will I need this?
No, you can use the factor sensors with your new wheels.
I have a set of FR500 rims that for my 2007 mustang. They have the TPMS sesnors and I also have the tool. I am thinking of moving onto a 2015 Mustang and was wondering if the system will work with that model as well. If not, is it a matter of replacing the tool, the sensors or both? Thanks, Jamie
Ford changed the frequency used in the TPMS sensors, so new sensors would be required. The transmitter tool will transmit the frequencies, even if they are different, so you may still use the transmitter tool with the new sensors.
Plan on upgrading to 255/40 19 wheels.If I purchase the valve stem mounted sensor will my ford dealer be able to sink it with the cars computer?
Yes, a Ford dealership will be able to sync the TPMS sensor to the vehicle.
I am buying a set of wheels from your site and tires from another site and having them installed at a local tire shop that has TPMS tools. They said they could use the original sensors on my 2016 Mustang GT and I wouldn't need new ones. Is this correct?
The 2017 mustang I currently have gives exact psi measurements from the dash and gauge mode. I was wondering if I bought new rims and and sensors would the psi reading be functional and accurate
So long as the vehicle is re-trained for the new sensors, it should function as normal.
An authorized Ford dealership certain can activate the sensor(s) for you.
