    Got my wheels and tires from discount tire with aftermarket TPMS's and can not find anyone who can sync them up. I've been to toyota, tires plus, tire kingdom...the best was tire kingdom they at least registered on the machine after dropping them to 10 psi..guy said they were in sleep mode but still could not get light to come off:mad:. I was told by discount tire they should work ...they are programmable...ok then why can't anyone program!! I was told by them to go some where with the right equipment "tech 400"....either way discount is doing their best to fix this but anyone on here deal with this??:confused:

    If they were doing there best then these should be replaced. I just had them put new wheels on my 2007 and they work great. It sounds like a bad set. or at least one is bad. i watched the tech install and he had to tweek them a little but the TPMS are working. Go back and ask them to replace them. I'm sure they will. Good Luck.

    Yeah I walked into another place and he wouldnt even attempt to sync them..said tacoma's are notorious for not working...its best to keep your stock factory ones....but I sold my complete wheel and tire set....I have to go to a shop 2moro that discount tire said would be able to hook them up...if not toyota wants 650.00 for new ones which includes install....what a long day trying to get that light out....lesson so far keep factory tpms...I should add I dont have a local discountiredirect near by otherwise this would be a easy fix

    Well just to update my situation with new tpms sensors...Discount tire sent me to a local goodyear tire outlet which had the tech 400 equipment...which they only had for 2weeks...crazy I know...they ended up calling the manufacture and the whole problem ended up being that : two wheels were scanned with the same ID # and every time somebody tried to sync it to my computer it would either show no ID or duplicate....well they had to reset every sensor and re program each sensor with the correct numbers...it's fixed but what a headache...human error can be a pain. 4 words KEEP YOUR STOCK TPMS

    Glad to hear they got to the bottom of it tho. Funny though we've had a tech 400 at our shop for several years.. and I work at a glorified grocery store! Weird discount tire didn't.. I think the real lesson is to not go there :laugh:

    I am sure Discount tire had one but there is not a local discount tire direct or americas tire around for several hundred miles. The problem was finding a local shop that had one ...and knew how to use it. All in all discount refunded me the 50 dollars I was charged to have them programmed and additional 50 for my troubles...Discount tire in my book is awesome.
