American Muscle TPMS dont work

I purchased a tire/rim package from AM last fall...had a bad tire and some balancing problems which were resolved before parking car for winter....

Package came with tpms sensors and the ford tool for syncing with car....Couldnt get tpms to link with car before parking for winter...Once weather breaks and car comes out of storage, I need to revisit this.....


Any ideas what problem might be?

I just put new tires and sensors on my car. Couple things.
1 Make sure any other car that has tpms sensors is at least 3 meters from the car (I did mine at the end of the driveway.
2 Also, the instructions I got said the sensors will go into sleep mode if sitting and suggested to move the car so the tires rotate at least once around.
Mine worked like a charm first time, but I bought sensors and calibration tool off ebay. Hope that helps.

I also bought a tire/rim package from AM. The tires sat for a few months before I installed them. I had no issues with the TPMS that they sent. Make sure you do not have your cell phone or any other sensors within 3meters as Mike stated. Don't hesitate to call AM, there customer service is excellent. On a side note I also had balancing issues.

Good info here. Another thing I ran into was that if I had driven on the tires much at all before sync'ing the sensors, they would go in sleep mode, and again, it was deflate the tires, wait 10 minutes or so, reinflate and was good to go. Took two different tires shops and the ford dealer plus a call to the vendor I bought the TPMS sensors from to figure this out. Talk about beating your head against a wall...

How "deflated" do the tires need to be?

I deflated until the tire looked flat, then filled them up. Did it at a tire shop, and synced the TPMS in the lot afterwards. It took a couple of minutes.

Try jacking up one wheel at a time and pulling the valve core. Do the ten minute wait and then air up to 32 psi.
