Well, after installing my new Continentals on my new BMW Mini wheels I can report that the TPMS 'issue' - so far as an iMiEV is concerned - is far from settled
I bought a set of 4 new sensors from Amazon advertised as being specifically programmed for the iMiEV and had them installed when they mounted my new tires. What followed was two months of calls and emails trying to get that warning light on the dash extinguished. The shop that installed the tires had an $1800 TPMS tool which has always worked on every single make and model they've tried it on and after 3 return trips to the shop, it became evident that it wasn't going to work on my car - Thankfully, they didn't charge me anything for all the trouble.
I went through 4 or 5 different 'techs' at the California company that sells the sensors and got nowhere. Eventually, in frustration, I asked for a refund and was transferred to someone I hadn't spoken to yet . . . . and I though i had talked to them all
"What can I do for you?" - Well, I bought your product specifically programmed to work with my car and I'd really like for it to do that. Since the sensors are already mounted in the wheels, I'd much rather have them working than get my money back. I 'thought' you might refer me to someone in my local area who can do that, but after 6 or 8 phone calls and several emails, nobody has offered to do that
He called around to my local tire stores, looking for one which had a specific brand of TPMS learning tool which he claimed was the only one that would work and when he found one, he sent me there. They worked for nearly an hour with that specified tool, to no avail. Finally, in desperation, they tried some other tool that they had previously used on only one other car . . . . and it worked!
No idea which tool was used, but after trips to three different stores, I can attest to the fact that none of the 'usual' TPMS tools which work on 95% of all other makes and models will work on this car.
I have no doubt that if you took it to a Mitsu dealer and they hooked it to a MUT III, you could get your new sensors programmed in 5 minutes . . . . probably for a $75 fee - 1/2 hour minimum. Which at this point, might be the lesser of all evils. Unfortunately, I don't have a Mitsu dealer closer than 100 miles
So - If you're getting new sensors, hopefully you have a Mitsu dealer close by
