TPMS Relearn Question

I have a 2014 Mustang GT/CS. I have upgraded the brakes with Ford Racing's M-2300-T Brembos package. I have installed a set of 2015 Ford OEM Trac Pack wheels which were take-offs. After the install I drove a few miles the TPMS fault warning came on. When I got home I checked the air pressures and one tire was several pounds low. I inflated it to the correct pressure and the warning went away. Thought I was good to go.

Today I was driving and at 15 miles the warning reappeared. I went to a tire store to have them balance the wheels and check the sensors. They said the sensors were showing the correct pressures but the computer was not able to recognize the sensors. They could not reprogram the computer to recognize the 2015 sensors. They said my Ford dealer had the equipment to do this.

Has anyone had this same problem or does anyone know if my Ford dealer can remedy the problem without me buying new 2014 sensors. I want to leave my CS wheels intact with the sensors.

Thanks in advance!

There may be a relearn process or something that needs to be done. Some scanners can do the relearn but they are expensive. Dealership or local shop can probably do it.

no you cannot use the 15 sensors on a 14 car. You need to put the 14 style sensors in. they have different frequencies

That was gonna be my guess . . . . let's remember this for all the "can I use 2015+ wheels on my 2014- car" threads

I exchanged a few PM's with someone that had 15 performance pack wheels on his s197, he stated the sensor light was random on/off as you said here, as said, you need the sensors for your year

Question for you, do your 2015 Mustang wheels fit well on your '14? I've been looking into doing the same swap but wasn't sure they'd fit properly. Thanks!

Reasons I wouldn't really want 2015+ wheels for my 2014- car:
1) center bore is larger on 2015; means they won't "hub center" (but lug centering is OK if you are careful tightening the lugs)
2) studs are different thread; need to use the 2014 lug nuts with the 2015 wheels (no big deal if you do it right)
3) TPMS sensors are not compatible, means you will have to spend about $200 for new ones, plus installation
4) there are plenty of 2014- wheels that don't have the above problems

Thanks! All of these issues are true but I got a fantastic deal on the new wheels with brand new tires and 15" Brembo rotors and 6 piston calipers. I will sell the 15" rotors and calipers and recoup almost what I paid for the whole package.

I have just ordered the 14 sensors so hopefully it will be a done deal:-)

They fit well except they were too close to the Brembo six piston calipers. I had to use wheel spacers to get the needed clearance. On standard brakes they fit well. The standard 2014 Ford OEM lug nuts wont work because the face of the nut is too small. I found lug nuts at Advance Auto that worked # 211-205.
