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.
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!!!
And you can download the newest Toyota TIS Techstream Here:
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
Select The Pressure Monitor
Code C2122: cannot receive data from transmitter ID2
Go to data list and read ID2 code
Tire ID2 location
BD7540 means a bad old sensor
Then back to Toyota Teachstream
Click on Unity
Perform the function of Tire ID registration for the tire pressure warning system
Note: registration will fail if the time limit its exceeded for any step
Warning: registration will fail if the system is still in the process of initialization
Click on Next
Input each transmitter ID code
Press Next to input the next code
Continue until all codes are registered
Id registration is complete
Click on Exit
Go to data list, concerned parameters are changed
Then go to trouble codes
Code C2122 was cleared!
