    A little surprised by this thread. I have a 2007 Acura TL with standard TPMS. It shows the accurate tire pressure for each wheel and updates wheel location automatically by moving the car a few feet after tire rotation. BTW, this system is dead on with my quality digital tire pressure gauge.

    Just a question: If the TPMS recognizes a low tire pressure and you fill the tire up how does one reset the TPMS or does this occur automatically

    It would be automatic.
    1. Do not copy anything that I post outside of the TMC forum without permission.

    3. Even the best recommendations are wrong when used inappropriately.

    Two ways to reset the TPMS if you have your tires deflated. The first is in the Owner Safety Information booklet:

    1. NOTE: The warning light does not turn off immediately after you adjust tire pressures. It turns off when you drive Model S above 25 mph (40 km/h) for more than 10 minutes with tires at the recommended pressures.

    2. Turn off the car via the menu and then press the brake to turn it on again (this is not officially documented anywhere that I know of).

    So when you change from summer to winter tires in cold climates. It's correct that the onboard tpms "reader" can't store more than 4 wheels? so you have to visit a service center to reprogram? Do they still sell the tool in the US? I remember earlier someone saying about $600.. Here they charge $2000(!) for it, and they should be the exact same tool.

    Anyone got some info on this?

    Currently they do not sell the reset tool. The tool referenced was for the Roadster. Currently I drive with the TPMS warning light on until I either have a scheduled annual service or pay Tesla to have it reset for the current set of tires.

    I hope they eventually sell the tool or enable the car to reset itself. This is one of the sacrifices one makes when buying an expensive car- more money for everything.

    If they at some point do offer the TPMS reset/programming tool for resale, or if we found a way to get it from a third party (Baolong?) then I would propose a group buy for the "Tesla Owner's Club Norway - Greater Oslo metropolitan area chapter". (OK, this club doesn't really exist quite yet, but will soon!)
