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.

If you purchased new wheels and tires for your 2007-2020 Mustang with the TPMS sensors already install inside, you will need to sync the new sensors to your cars computer.
TPMS Transmitter Tool. The TPMS Transmitter Tool is used to sync the new sensors in your wheels to your cars computer after you have mounted them onto your Mustang. Can also be used when rotating your tires with the stock sensors still installed.
Save Money. In the past only dealerships could sync up new TPMS sensors to your car, but now with the Transmitter Tool you can do it yourself at home saving yourself time and money.
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.

The TPMS tool works as expected. I have used this on my 2016 Mustang GT. Then I traded my 2016 in for a 2019 but transferred my MMD wheels from the 2016 to the 2019 and used the tool again. Worked flawlessly each time.Helpful (0)

Hi, Will this tool work with 2016 European Mustang (frequency : 433 mhz) )
If you are using TPMS sensors that you have gotten from our website, the transmitter tool will work. If you are using your stock ones, then you may have issues getting everything to sync together properly.
If i purchase a new set of wheels, why cant i just put the factory sensors in the new wheels? Why do i need new sensors?
You don't need new sensors, you can absolutely use the factory sensors. We offer them because if we mount and balance your wheels and tires, it's pretty silly to do so if you plan on using stock tire pressure sensors as you will be forced to unmount and then remount the tires onto the wheels.
I have a 2013 GT 5.0. I put stock wheels from a 2007 GT/CS 4.6L on the 2013. Will the transmitter tool sync the 2007 wheels to the 2013 stang?
This TPMS Transmitter will synchronize with all 2007 to 2016 Mustangs with Tire Pressure Monitoring Systems. changing wheels will be a cinch.
Do I need this TPMS transmitter tool on a 2011 Mustang GT?
lf you plan to install new TPMS sensors, yes, the tool is required.
I purchased this item, along with a wheel and tire kit, with the valve stem sensors. How does this actually work? What I did was push the button in front of each valve stem. It worked for about 50 miles, then the tire light came back on. I tried the same procedure again, and it did not work at all. I keep this device in the car, but have not mounted it anywhere. Does it need to be mounted? If so, where?
In order to sync the new sensors to your vehicle, you would need to follow the instructions here: https://lib.americanmuscle.com/files/tpms-reset-instructions.pdf. The sync tool would not need to be mounted in the vehicle at all.
This sync tool would work with the aftermarket kit that we carry and OEM tpms sensors compatible with the Ford Mustang.
No, this is simply a tool to sync the new tire pressure sensors to your vehicle.
The TPMS Tool is required in order to sync the sensors to your vehicles monitoring system. Unfortunately, the vehicle will not automatically sync the sensors to its monitoring system.
This TPMS Transmitter Tool will work with all 2007-2018 Mustang equipped with TPMS sensors.
Yes, this TPMS Transmitter Tool is used to sync the new sensors in your wheels to your cars computer after you have hmounted them onto your Mustan,
Unfortunately, the TPMS sensors are different from the 11-14 Mustangs and the 15-18 Mustangs. This tool will work on your Mustang, however you would need to replace the sensor with the ones from the proper year range.
The TPMS sensors will require programming for the computer to recognize them as the ones to be read.
You would need to purchase the TPMS tool if you wanted to sync the new sensors yourself. Most tire shops are able to sync the sensors for you if you didn't want to purchase this tool.
We do apologize you are having this issue with the TPMS Transmitter Tool. Please contact our customer service department so that we may directly assist you with this issue. Our contact information can be found here: https://www.americanmuscle.com/contact.html.
The TPMS Transmitter Tool is specifically designed for connecting sensors on the Mustang to the car. We cannot guarantee that the frequency is the same for any other vehicles.
