Toyota Techstream replace broken TPMS sensor with new one

Here, i wanna share something about how to erase broken TPMS Sensor and Add New TPMS Sensor in Toyota Lexus or Scion using Toyota diagnostic software TechStream.

 

About tools:

After a quick look online, i get the software and USB adapter (it’s called mini vci) for usually under $30 shipped.
Don’t pay high insane dealer fees!! Also I have no idea how to do aftermarket TPMS sensors. I ONLY put OEM parts in my Toyota Vehicles. So I know there is some other weird programming you have to do with the aftermarket sensors.
I got this OEM Denso TPMS Sensor from Amazon.com for $35 shipped. MAKE SURE you know the CORRECT TPMS DENSO PART NUMBER for your vehicle!!! There are a few different ones this software will do ALL OEM sensors but you need to make sure you have the right sensor!!!

TPMS is not ON actually. Flashing means that i have an actual tire so it’s not that i have low tire even though i could have a low tire. It’s the fact, there must be something wrong with the TPMS.

 

Then go to the software Teachstream:

Click on Connect to vehicle

Confirm vehicle info: Toyota Highlander 2010, 2GR FE, W/O Smart key
