It was funny after I went through all of my research and got the pad and software to clone and cloned everything and then I couldn't get the wheel off to swap the actual TPMS I took it to a shop and the guy said they now have the stuff to do exactly what I did and they even used the same TPMS, I asked how much and it was the same price as I paid for everything. Had I known...
They do make a stand alone "tool" that can scan existing TPMS and clone them onto new programmable TPMS, but it was more expensive, but a LOT easier.
In the end I did the same thing to our Van so it was less expensive and if I ever have to swap bad TPMS's I can do it myself or on our next vehicle as well,
