TPMS Reset Tool

After swapping wheel, the TPMS warning light has been constantly blinking on and off when I'm driving. I think this means that I need to reset the TPMS sensors? I know the Ford part number that I need is 8C2Z1A203A. Anyone know where can I get this part the cheapest?

Re: TPMS Reset Tool

Has anybody reset their TPMS sensors before? I inflated the tires to the proper pressure and the TPMS light is still on.

I had them 'reset' at a tire shop. My light still blinks.

I'm pretty sure one of them at least is bad.

Re: TPMS Reset Tool

I've never had to re-set and I have been through like 4 sets now. You probably have a bad one.

Re: TPMS Reset Tool

Serious question, are you sure the tire shop actually swapped them over? Maybe they went full-retard and tossed 'em.

Re: TPMS Reset Tool

[size=10pt]tire tech in the building!! every single time a customer buys wheels we always swap tpms sensors over to new wheels, no questions asked. Now if you got new wheels and the light started blinkin after installation, either the tire shop you went to were retarded and didnt swap over sensors OR, they broke at least one when they were doin their job. 1st gen mz3's usually have to be set to tire pressure placard and then tested with the tpms scan tool in order for the light to go off. then you can adjust to your desired pressure. 2nd gen mz3's all you need is to have them all set at 32 (tire pressure plcard recommend) and the light should go off with the car being on in about a min. hopefully that was helpful[/size]

Just wanted to add a clarification. The 2nd gen MZ3 iTouring has a placard recommendation of 35psi for its 16" wheels. The sport model has a placard recommendation of 32psi for its 17" wheels.
