    I have some new wheels going on with new tpms sensors as I’m keeping old wheels  , do the tpms sensors automatically connect to the car or do they have to be reprogrammed ?

    @robroy, from memory….. when the wheel/tyre fitted you go to the car computer setting for tyre pressure set command and press ok the tpm should be set (41 front 38 rear)

    You will have train the car to read the new TPMS sensors.

    To put the car in Re-Learn mode is fairly easy to do. You then follow the car instructions using a TPMS19 tool to  align the sensors in the new wheels to the car.

    Search the web for a TPMS19 to find a cheap reset tool and also search for putting the car into learning mode. Dead easy to do involving the brake pedal and ignition cycling.

    @srea064

    Thanks for that the garage said they can do it but printing this off just in case !

    I have another issue they said they couldn’t get the ford tmps sensors to fit with out damaging them , anyone else have this problem ( their own universal sensors however do fit ?)

    They lubed them up and have a tool to pull them through but no luck

    The sensor separates from the valve,it’s held on with a small screw,what do they mean they will damage them,the rubber part just pulls through like a normal valve,I do them every day with sensors & never damaged one yet.

    The rubber part can be bought on eBay for £10 for a set of 4 & your sensors will screw onto them.

    They said they were too tight , they separated the sensor and said they normally lube them up anyway ,.in fact they had a focus in the same day with no problem, not an rs

    They are aftermarket wheels , but can’t see it would make a difference

    Do the mean they cannot remove your rubber bit out of your original wheels.? I know those can be tight to get out sometimes,that’s why I always keep a few spare sets in stock.aftermarket wheels shouldn’t make any difference,most wheels are made to take standard size valves
