    Have a 2015 Tacoma with 16” stock rims/tires for the winter and 2018 chrome limited rims/ tires for summer. Looking for scan tool to reset without always going to the dealer to turn off light. Please advise

    This is where it would be nice to have a set of "cloned" sensors.

    You either need a dedicated TPMS programming tool or a scan tool with that functionality.

    Your gona probably be in the $400-700 range for a scan tool with that capability unless you go with one of the smartphone based ones like the TopDon TopScan Pro or ThinkDiag but do note those are subscription based (~$50-100/ year after the first year).

    Autel, Launch, and TopDon would be my top 3 aftermarket scan tool manufacturers to look at, there are a ton of offerings with varying levels of functionality from under $100 to over $1000. Just do your research and do your best to make sure what you get will suit your needs.


    That would work too but would require new aftermarket sensors in the secondary set of wheels, the OE ones have a factory set ID and can't be cloned.

    Figured I’d ask you since you'll have a better idea than most.

    Are 3rd gen tpms compatible with 2nd gens? Some say yes, most say no. Any shop or dealer that sells tpms says no.

    If yes, is there a dedicated tpms scanner you recommend that won’t break the bank? I don’t run multiple sets of rims so the scanners use would be pretty limited beyond this use. There are lots of cheap options out there. If a more expensive scanner is needed and it cost more than the cost of new sensors and the 40$ mount and balance fee I don’t for see the value in my scenario.

    3rd gen sensors are Not compatible with the 2nd gen TPMS system.

    The Autel TS501 (~$200) Is probably the cheapest TPMS tool that can read sensors and program them to the truck as well as program Autel's universal sensors.
    If you want a full featured all system bi-directional scan tool that also has the same TPMS functionality as the TS501 and can afford it the Autel MK808S-TS (~$650) would be a good choice IMO.

    I will say I do not own either one of these but I do have an Autel MS906BT and an old TS401 (only reads sensors) and am happy with both.

    my low budget solution to this has been to put some black electrical tape in between my line of sight on the cluster plastic shield.

    if you wanted a more permanent fix you can pull the cluster out and put some black paint on the back of the faceplate behind the tire icon.

    neither are elegant fixes but they have the redeeming virtue of being dirt cheap.
