In the aftermarket, TPMS presents certain challenges. Some vehicle manufactures have made the TPMS re-learn process more complex by requiring a scan tool (plugged into the OBD). What's more, in addition to a scan tool, (in most cases) you also need a TPMS trigger (activation) tool to complete the process.

Extensive detail of all procedures required for all vehicles including the TPMS procedures are illustrated in the Mitchell1 Tire Pressure Monitoring Systems Guide.
