Here is a summary of Tire Pressure Monitor operation mode for the following Lexus models:

2011 - 2007: ES350, GS350, GS450h, GS460, GX460, LS460, LS600h, LX470, LX570, RX330, RX350, RX400h, RX450h, SC430

Each transmitter has a built-in semiconductor to directly measure tire pressure, and is powered by a lithium battery with a lifespan of approximately 10 years.

The transmitter ID codes for two sets of tires - such as regular and winter - may be registered in the system (ID registration must take place at a Lexus dealership). A tire select switch on the left of the glove box allows the driver to easily select the appropriate tire set for monitoring.



I wonder if the CT200h will have this two transmitter code capability, so that once registered I wont have to go back to the dealer when switching from summer to winter rims and tires.

I haven't seen the select switch in the CT.

The best thing would be to disable it.
Folks on Prius forum were able figure it out how to disable it:
Idea to fool the tire pressure sensors - Page 7 - PriusChat Forums

I DO NOT believe that this batteries will last for 10-years (max. a year or two) especially in the winter when it is -40C/F

Can a user setup/register those TPMS units in the car himself or it has to be done by a dealer and why?
If it is only done by a dealer I think it is just a money grab.

there is no "2nd set" switch on CT200h.

If you run a 2nd set of TPMS on your winter tires, the ID's will have to be programmed each time you run the 2nd set of TPMS.

There is no second setting for the tire pressure monitor system on this car. There are aftermarket tools that read the sensors and then plug into the obd connector of the car and programm them for you

The dealer's service adviser told me CT supports 2 set of TPMS. Does anyone know this is true or just BS?
that is false information...as far as the 2011-12 is concerned..there is only 1 setting as previously mentioned

I will look into if this was changed on the 2013

What about us in the UK? I was told by the dealer that we do not have the TPMS. I have just bought a new set of alloys and winter tyres ready to go on the car in the next couple of weeks and was told it would be no problem for the car (sensorwise).

TPMS is a requirement in the US
