What is happening with my tpms? Won't show tire pressure

Just had some wheels fixed and tpms wnt get out of the active screen. Also if I say ok to reset it still won't show pressures and just says tpms active.
Is there something else I need to do. This has never happened before.
It won't reset even after 100 miles of driving to show any pressureS. And it doesn't say any of the monitors are defective or missing

Hi folks,

I am having the same issue.
Replaced my (all four) tires yesterday (done by Discount tire and they have replaced the TPMS system/sensors per the invoice) and since then the TPMS is stuck in 'TPMS active' screen.
There is an option for 'use the current readings standard' etc etc.... but when I press it-----it says TPMS restarted. Then it goes back to TPMS active screen.

Drove more than 100 miles (>2 hours)
I searched the forums to see if there is any other way to reset but could not find any info.
Discount tire is closed today and tomorrow so can't go there till Tuesday.

Any thing else I could do.

Thank you

If the issue started after the install, I would then go back to the shop and let them figure it out. Did they use your original senors, new OE sensors, or aftermarket?

Hi. I only changed my tyres. I didn't change the wheels or sensors.
Do I have to change the sensors as they were fine initially

First, make sure the tires are reset to the appropriate tire pressures. Here's what the 2014 Owner's Manual says:

Make sure that the SmartKey is in position 2 in the ignition lock (page 157).
Press the < or > button on the steering wheel to select the "Serv" menu.
Press the ^ or v button to select "Tire Pressure."
Press the OK button.
The "Run Flat Indicator Active Press 'OK' to Restart" message appears in the multifunction display.
If you wish to confirm the restart:
Press the OK button.
The "Tire Pressure Now OK?" message appears in the multifunction display.
Press the ^ or v button to select "Yes".
Press the OK button.
The "Run Flat Indicator Restarted" message appears in the multifunction display.
After a teach-in period, the tire pressure loss warning system will monitor the set
tire pressures of all four tires.
Doesn't say how long the "teach-in" period or learning period needs to be before it's reset though. Important to note you're telling the car what the normal tire pressure should be so make sure the pressures are set at the correct pressure before you reset the TPMS. If the pressure is too high or too low and you reset it using this method you could have issues.

Sorry about the delay in reply.
the store that change the tires said the sensors are working fine.
They were not much help.
I made an appointment with dealership in 2 days, will keep you guys posted.

A Mercedes dealership replaced aftermarket sensors that you bought at Discount tire *under warranty*? You must tell us where you had the the work done - I am sure peter here has a lot of work for them to do on his Toyota!
