Whats a good TPMS reset tool?
 
As the title asks, with me buying dedicated snows for the wife's 2015 Malibu and my 2014 Cruze, what inexpensive little TPMS "tuner" tool should I look at? Would one of those cheap ones on Amazon work ok?

Just really a cheap one but we have the Otc 3833b13 at work and it works great.

I've got the Kent Moore EL-50448. Worked on my buddies 2016 Duramax and my 2010. Got it off Amazon, incase it didn't work, would be easy to return.

Thanks, but Ive found that OTC means "Outrageous Tool Cost". Holy moly, the 3833b13 is $477 on Amazon!!! Wow. Thats wasy out of a DIYer's price range.

The Kent Moore tool is $100, too. But the off-brand versions (that look exactly the same!) are $20-30.

Looks like you have to know the frequency of the sensors you're dealing with before you buy a tool. Both the 'Bu and the Cruze use the same 315MHz sensors, so that 50448 tool looks to be the correct one for my app.

Thanks guys!

We use this one at work and it seems to work well.

I need to replace the TPMS sensors in my 2008. The original sensors have been replaced with the tpms part number ACDelco 13598771. Any idea what cheapo programming tool will work with it?

Had great luck with Foxwell stuff before
Never used their tpms though but looks to be around the same 100-150 price range

Haha, that was a typo. I ment to say "Not really a cheap one". I'd like to try out one from Autel like the ts401.

To follow up:

Got the new snow tires mounted on my wife's 'Bu today. I bought this tool for the TPMS from Amazon for $30: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

I followed the GM reset procedure in the owners manual, and it took all of 3 minutes to do all four sensors.

Thanks for the info, guys. :hug:
