TPMS reset tools

Does anyone have any experience with the programming/reset tools for tire pressure monitoring systems.

I was looking at this one on Amazon



The new car has TPMS sensors on the tires and I would like to keep doing the change overs from winter to summer myself.

Bought the same one for our GMs and works fine twice a year.

I've recently purchased and have used an autel TS408 unit. Have done several reprogramming of sensors and they went well. On the GM vehicles I've done the vehicle itself helps you by lighting up the marker light at the wheel position to be programmed, then horn beeps to tell you it's done and proceed to next wheel. Driver front then passenger front then passenger rear and finally driver rear, after which the horn beeps twice to tell you that it's completed. It was $125 American, and does just about every vehicle make & model.

That tool works fine with a Chevy equinox and terrain.

My Lincoln Continental has TPMS on summer and winter wheels. I have the sensor reset tool but it is not needed. The TPMS resets automatically after driving a kilometer or two after a seasonal tire change. My son's 2016 Dodge Caravan also has sensors on summer and winter wheels, and his automatically resets too. I don't know about GM.

I use an ATEQ TPM Quickset when I swap the summer/winter wheels on our vehicles (Subaru). Programmed with TPMS sensor codes on the pc and then it plugs into the OBDII port to update the car with new codes. It works for pretty much any make/model of vehicle as far as I am aware.

Just curious if you ever let air out of one of your automatically reset / acknowledged sensors to see that the vehicle responded with correct tire position from the tire you depressurized, or if those systems on your vehicles just warn of a low tire. I'm learning about these systems and some are position specific and others are just a low tire warning and you must check each one to find the low tire. Thanks for any information you can provide.

My car displays the pressure for each tire in a 4 position display. Before I trusted that the system worked correctly on seasonal changes I set each tire to a different pressure with a couple of pounds difference. The system picked up the new tire pressures on each seasonal replaced tire exactly. If after the TPMS has stored the tire sensor information and you depressurise one tire and command the TPMS display on then the display shows all the tire pressures and you will see the low one since the system is very accurate to the nearest PSI (other pressure units can be set). One of the biggest assets is that you can see the tire pressures fall as the colder weather sets in so easy to add air (or lose air in spring) for the next day.

My son with the Dodge Caravan does not display the tire pressures. My neighbor owns a few Speedy Muffler shops and confirmed that Dodge works similarly to Lincoln so you don't need a tool to reset the TPMS to the new tires. I will ask my other son with a 2012 F150 twin turbo how his system works.

My neighbor with the Speedy muffler shops has a newer Chevrolet Silverado truck, that has everything on it. He confirms that you need a tool to reset the TPMS if you change tire positions or replace seasonal tires (on rims with sensors).

Hope this helps.

Thanks for all of the replies and advice folks. I'll give the one from Amazon a try to reset the ones on the Equinox.

Have to go out and buy a new set of winters for the Santa Fe but that doesn't have TPMS so it's a straight changeover once I get the new tires on the winter rims.

Hi @Shaw351

My son with the 2012 F150 Twin Turbo says there is no tire pressure display, but the system automatically accommodates seasonal tire changes. If a tire loses enough air to set the TPMS alarm on there is no indication of which tire is low. You have to test all the tires with a gauge. He has only had one tire lose that much air but checks all 4 to be sure.
