    Tesla not selling the TPMS programming tool anymore and my dealership does not have one.

    Are there any options to program my car other than riding without sensors?

    Is there an aftermarket programming tool? Who made the Tesla tool???

    Best...

    I believe Mt. Kisco has one, which is probably your best bet..?

    The Tesla ranger just programmed my TPMS in about 5 min with a tool that looks very similar to the one posted above.

    Tesla should just start making and/or selling them again. I'll bet they would sell like hot cakes?

    This worked for me. I put on 19" TSTs with new TPMS, and reset the TPMS from the touchscreen and drove a few miles until I got the "your system is all set" message. No programming necessary.

    Don't know about v2 TPMS.

    My money is on @HankLloydRight being a Model S owner who mistakenly posted in the Roadster section.. :)

    Has anyone been able to reset their TPMS without going to the SC? I'm beginning to regret not going in on the group buy we had a few years ago :-(

    So, I called our local Tires Plus (who just installed the sensors and tires) and it turns out that their Snap-On 3 Series TPMS tool has an entry for the Tesla Roadster. The manager read me the directions and they sound familiar so I am going to give it a shot this evening on my way home from work... Fingers crossed!

    I think you'll need the tool.

    Sure enough, the Tires Plus (Snap On) tool didn't work
