TPMS Reset without the tool?
 
Just found this post on line and was wondering if anyone has seen or tried it? Does it really work? I will be changing to winter wheels and tires soon and was about to purchase the Ford TPMS Reset Tool, but if this works why buy the tool.

1) Make sure your tires are inflated to the recommended psi. Mine is 40psi.

2) Turn ignition to the on position. If you have a push button start, push the start button without pressing the brake pedal.

3) Push the hazard light button 6 times. The horn should honk and you should see "Train left front tire" in the LCD display between the tach and speedo.

4) Release air pressure in the front left tire until you hear the horn honk. The LCD display should now read "Train right front tire".

5) Release air pressure in the right front tire until you hear the horn honk.

6) Repeat for the the right rear tire, and then the left rear tire.

7) You should now see "Training Complete" in the LCD display.

8) Fill your tires back up to the recommended pressure.

Never tried it but does sound logical... I guess we'll find out if it works or not. ;)

I swapped my Brembo wheels and tires with Boss 302 wheels and tires. The boss wheels had the original sensors in them. They worked without me doing anything. Never got a dash warning light or anything.

Got mine for $35 a while back through Amazon. Works great! Rotated my tire a couple of times with it. Make the programming a breeze...

Got it here and shipping is free. How can you beat that.
