Add Valve Stem-Mounted TPMS Sensors - Set of 4 (07-09 All)
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.
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.

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.
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.
My friend gave me his stock wheels/tires off a 2017 GT that I have now installed on my 2011 V6. Will this tool sync the '17 TPMS to my '11??
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.
I currently have 22" Lexani wheels on a 2016 with tpms and sensors. Do the receivers have to be properly programmed? Such as when I put on the 19s at the track is the computer going to freak out?
The TPMS sensors will require programming for the computer to recognize them as the ones to be read.
I have 2 stem TPMS and 2 band TPMS on my stock wheeled 2008 Bullitt. I have ordered another 2 stem TPMS to replace the bands, do I need the transmitter tool to get all 4 stem TPMS to work ?
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.
Ordered a set of wheels with TPMS sensors installed, but every time I try to sync the sensors to the car it only works on the left front tire, but doesn’t on the right. Is there a reason for that? I tried syncing at every angle and distance, but I got nothing.
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.

Don’t waste your money
2015 and up seem to be self learning. I installed a wheel and tire set with sensors installed. My car automatically learned them with no sync tool necessary. Huge waste of money. My tool is still in its original baggie that it shipped in.

May you have better success than me
I bought a wheel and tire set for my 2011 v6 some time ago and couldn't get the transmitter to ever recognize the sensors. I put the same wheels a couple yrs later on my 2013 v6 and it would never recognize the sensors. Now I have a 2014 Track Pack GT with factory wheels and it wont recognize them either. I've tried all the suggestions they mention in the video if you encounter a problem and still the car doesn't recognize the transmitter. So, I've had this really cool tpms program in the gauge cluster on 3 mustangs and only saw it function correctly on 1 for about a month before I bought new wheels and tires. Since then I have always had to live with the tire pressure error text flashing between miles driven and miles till empty of fuel. The tpms thinga ma jig transmitter lights up no problem but I never have been able to get it to connect. Probably something ridiculous Im doing or not doing?

A Must Have
I bought one and it was stolen after one use. I bought a replacement but does this not reveal how important and useful it is?
December 17, 2016
Way to easy
This was way to easy, changed out wheels and tires and had never sensors put on. This tool made reprogram with American Muscle's video way to easy.

Worked just as expected
I was able to get my sensors synced and if it wasn't for a broken sensor I would have been able to avoid a trip to the tire shop. The tool is very easy to use and compact.

TPMS Transmitter Tool
First off, the product arrived quicker than expected which was great! I used the tool to sync the new wheels and tires I was putting on for the winter season. Following the directions to get the vehicle into the proper mode was simple enough and then syncing the new wheels to the car was a breeze! I will perform this twice a year when I swap wheels. Overall, good product and great service from AM...as usual!!!
November 27, 2016
Works but I ended up not needing it. My car automatically synced with the new tpms system. Will use it for the wife's car.
November 22, 2016
I just purchased new TPMS for my Mustang as I bought new tires for it. I wanted to get the pressure monitor working right without having to go to dealer and get a big bill to do it so I purchased the tool. WOW it was so simple and I am glad I purchased one. You won't be disappointed.
November 10, 2016
Can't rave enough! Works like a charm and priced right with easy directions. Recommend it to anyone changing their tires/wheels.
September 12, 2016
The tool does exactly what it says it does and it takes about 5 minutes to program your tires. Works awesome! It also comes with a velcro attachment if you decide to stick it somewhere. I decided to stick it inside my glove compartment so I never lose it! Very happy.

No issues at all, synced right up! Easy to follow instructions!
