I just took in the wife's 09 Vue to get new Blizzacks put on. They come over and say they need the original factory key fob to reset the TPMS. I asked why and she says it can only be reset with a factory key fob. I asked if they have the TPMS handheld tool, because no one ever needed the fob before. She must have thought I had no idea and started on about new cars are different and only the factory remote will work. I didn't tell her I've been in electronics since the 60s and know BS when I hear it. Anyway they charge $5 per tire to reset the TPMS and you would assume Costco would have the TPMS scanner.

Re: costco
Yeah, any opportunity to charge extra for some "Nebulous Gobbledygook" associated with "modern cars". I hope they didn't lock you out of the onboard programming capabilities your vehicle is equipped with.

Re: costco
I used to go to Costco for a lot of tire stuff. Check at [url][/url] for a location near you. Some places are Discount Tire while around me it's America's Tire. Their policy is to beat any legitimate pricing, including discount clubs like Costco or Sam's Club...
