Gen6 TPMS sensor won't reset

hi TN,

My friend bought two new tires for her car, and had all the wheels rotated. When she went to the toyota, they said they need $100 bucks, just to reset my TPMS sensor.. which is something so simple. There are few videos on YouTube that details how to reset the TPMS sensor...

So I followed all the steps. I bought a tire pressure sensor (*a nice digital one), I put air in the tires (30 on all 4), i put the car ignition on ON, put the parking brakes on, and pressed the TPMS switch, saw the three blinks,.. and I thought it would stop coming after that... But Nope. It started right back on and started blinking.

Now I am not sure what to do?

Has this happened to anyone here before. Her car is a 2007 Camry.

Thanks!

It's possible whoever changed the tires damaged the sensor.

After you picked up the car, did it start to blink? If its flashing on a toyota usually means its a bad sensor.

Could be one of those cars that has a sensor in the spare tire if it's a full size spare. Check the spare tire.

Is it possible to change the sensor ourselves? or does it require going to the shop? I have the tire iron etc to remove the wheel, not sure which sensor is broken,. How do I find that? Is there a DIY here on how to change the sensor?

The sensor is inside the wheel itself. So, no. you would be able to change it out on your own. You need to dismount and mount the tire from the rim to change the sensor.
You need a $1200 scan tool to transmit and receive signals from each sensor to find out which one is bad.

Have you check the spare tire yet?

If it started immediately when your friend picked the car up after the 2 tires were replaced, take it back to the shop that replaced the tires. They probably did break one of the sensors on the wheels they were working on. Let them deal with the problem.
