About TPMS Reset Tool
It has been a long hot summer of cruising on the freeway with the windows down and the music up; but now the summer is at an end, and that means rolling out the winter tires. Before you head out on the open road with your new wheels, you are going to need to reset your tire pressure monitoring system with a TPMS reset tool. All passenger vehicles and light trucks made since 2008 have a TPMS sensor to warn against under inflated tires and to optimize fuel consumption and tire tread. When the internal pressure of the tire reaches a dangerously low level, the sensor informs you it is time to take action. A TPMS sensor tool communicates with the wireless sensor in the tire, allowing you to reprogram your vehicle's ECU to maintain accurate readings following the installation of a new TPMS sensor, or following the replacement of the tires. Fortunately, a TPMS relearn tool is easy to use, and most have simple one-button activation controls. Furthermore, many of the tools are universal, and thus work on all sensors that were available at the point the tool went on sale. Sellers on eBay have many automotive tools and accessories for sale at discount prices, which eases the pressure of finding the right TPMS reset tool at the right price.
