    girlfriend just got a 2015 Lexus GX 460 and was thinking Techstream would be good for both trucks . the GX you have to reset the the tire pressure via the dealer ( complete BS)

    My wife has the same car. She has had a flat tire. The light went off when I had the tire repaired. I did not have to reset anything. Are you sure the spare is not low. I have a SR double cab like you.

    @tacomawv thanks I aired up all 4 not the spare , will do that this week . I have been reading on CLub Lexus that if the TPMS light is blinking that it's the sensor . Her GX blinks then stay on .

    Yep, and that’s pretty cheap as well. I think a couple buddies of mine had 40.00 into their setups.

    What kind of OS do you need to download the file?

    Also, the cable you linked to says BMW, I’m assuming it will work for any obd2 connection?

    Thanks.

    Yes, you can program a key, reprogram new tmps sensors, turn off your seatbelt chime, read all codes, view live data, and a ton of other stuff.

    It also does generic obd2 code reading

    It's very user friendly.

    But if you're having issues with it, it's very easy to get YouTube certified.

    Ya it it blinks after the car is turned on then stays solid it's a sensor not communicating with the computer. Wether it's missing, dead, or misprogramed.

    But there are some pita things that you have to do to replace those... you have to pop the tire off the bead to replace it

    Thanks. I’m going to give it a shot. I only want to be able to program my tpms on winter change overs. I’ll probably pm you if I have an issue downloading the software. I’m not very tech savvy. Lol.

    Your all good. And make sure you write down the codes of the sensors somewhere. Because you have to retype in the sensors to reprogram them
