I had a leak in one of my tires so I ended up putting tire sealant in the tire to stop the leak. That seemed to work for months, but just recently, I got an SVC Tire Monitor error on my dashboard. I figured I might have ruined my TPMS and purchased another one. I purchased the VDO Redi-Sensor, which comes pre-programmed. I am afraid to break down the tire as it might start leaking again. I was able to build a pressurized tube to get the sensor to learn to the car. However, I read online that people have been able to sqeeze the TPMS sensor with their fingers to get a reading. I have tried squeezing it in multiple places, but I haven't been able to get any reading that way. I don't want to have the pressurized tube in my car which is why I'm trying to figure out another way. If you have any suggestions, I'd greatly appreciate it.
