Can't get TPMS to reset

I put new wheels and tires on about a months ago. Took it in to the shop because of a shimmy and the TPMS light being on. Turned out they found the TPMS sensor on my front right was broken and loose inside the tire. DTD sent me a new TPMS sensor, and I had it installed. Vibration went away, but the TPMS light is still on. It flashes for awhile when I start the truck, then eventually goes to a solid indicator. No matter what I do with the TPMS button, it has no effect. I called the dealer and they said the shop must have done something wrong.. but I got the impression the dealer had no idea what they were talking about. Any ideas?

Surprised the dealer didn't mention that if a sensor was replaced, the new sensor code has to be programmed into the ecu. Otherwise it can't read that signal.
Hopefully you have some paperwork with the sensor code. If not, the tire will have to be broken down again because the code is stamped on the sensor.

Good info

^What he said. Hope fully you also have the broken sensor so you can get the old code off it and know which one to replace in the ECU. Otherwise, all 4 tires have to be broken down to figure out which TPMS was replaced. And they will charge you for all 4 tires.

The dealer should have a SST to read the actual sensor I.D number by just holding it up the the valve stem and not breaking the tire down,makes life a lot easier.the tech will still need to input the actual I.D numbres he got off the SST into the tire ecu.

FYI......once the dash lamp is lit, the system can not be reset until all problems are cleared. Mine did the same thing, and I read the TPMS DTC by shorting pin 4 and 13 on the OBD II connector under the dash, since I don't have a TechStream (who does?). This causes all dash lamps to flash. If a lamp flashes steady on-off-on-off....then that particular system is OK (TPMS, SRS, VSC, check engine, etc.) If there is a problem, it will flash the DTC number. In my case it was TPMS code 22, which flashed like this; on-off-on-short pause-on-off-on-long pause which repeats until turned off. This translates to TPMS sensor ID: 2 not responding. I recently got tires, and two of the sensor's nuts were frozen and not replaced. I assume it is one of these and have one on order at the tire shop. They have the ability to register/de-register TPMS sensors.

Unless those were the 4 sensors that were registered to the truck before, you need to get them programmed. The Lexus dealer can let you know if they have tundra in their programming. LX570 may be close enough. But all toyota and I assume lexus have the hand held reader tool.

I have a sheet printed with all 8 of my sensors codes. If you ever get your vehicle hooked up, have them print out the codes.
