Mustang TPMS: How To Reprogram Mustang Tire Pressure Monitoring System


[MUSIC PLAYING] Hey, everybody. J-Mac and Jeff here, and
we’re going to show you how to install new wheels and tires
on your ’07 to present Mustang with a Tire Pressure
Monitoring System. All right. Now, we do get a lot of calls
on retreading TPMS sensors to your Mustang, so we
will walk you through step by step on getting that done. All right. Now, we’re going to swap
out these 2012 Boss 302 wheels with a set of these four
racing Laguna Seca-style wheels with Nitto Invo tires. Let’s go ahead and get
these things swapped out. Now, just a quick tip before you
get your new wheels on the car. From the factory,
you’re going to have a couple of these little
metal clips on your lug studs holding your rotors on. Now, these are
used at the factory to hold the rotor onto the hub
as it’s going down the assembly line. Now, your factory wheels
have a little recess behind the lug nut hole that
allows it to go over this ring. Some of your aftermarket wheels,
like these Laguna Seca wheels, also have that recess. A lot of aftermarket
wheels don’t. So they’re flat on the back,
meaning if you leave these on, your wheel is never going to
be flush up against the rotor, and you’re going to
have vibration problems. Just as a precaution,
I always pull them off. You’ll have one
to two per wheel, and you can just take your
pair of needle-nose pliers, grab hold, and pull
them right off. All right. Once you get your wheels swapped
out, snug up your lug nuts, put the car back on the ground,
and then final torque them. Do 100 foot-pounds. Now, two reasons
you want to torque your lug nuts, A, to make sure
that they’re completely tight, B, uneven torque
on your lug nuts could cause you to
warp your rotors. Not a cheap
proposition to replace. Now, you can pick up a
torque wrench at somewhere like Harbor Freight or
Sears for next to nothing. A really good tool to
have in your arsenal if you do anything
with cars whatsoever. Now, to train your TPMS sensors
to your ’07 to present Mustang, you want to start out by
putting your key in the ignition leaving it in the off position. Press and release
the brake pedal. Turn your key on,
off, on, off, back on. Press and release the
brake pedal again. Turn your key off, then you
want to go on, off, on, off, on. You’ll hear the audible honk. Jeff, go ahead and start
training the wheels. All right. To train your TPMS sensor,
take the supplied tool. It’s got an arrow on
the front telling you which side needs to face
the sidewall of the tire. Press the tool to the
sidewall near the valve stem. Press and hold the button. You should hear a
honk just like that. Now, the process
you’re going to take is going to be the front driver
side, then the front passenger side, the rear passenger
side, and then, lastly, the rear driver side tire. All right. Once the driver rear
tire has been trained, you’ll hear a single honk. And if you have a
heads-up display, it’ll say training complete. Now, on some year models, when
you turn the ignition off, you’ll have a single honk. Now, on any year model,
if you hear double honk, that means your
training did not take, and you need to start over
again from the beginning. [MUSIC PLAYING]
