    Swapped rims from one Jetta to another, need to re-program TPMS codes

    Is it possible to read the id codes from TPMS in one car and program them into another car using RossTech VAG COM? My 2006 has my 2012 rims on it and TPMS has error. The original rims are on my 2012 now.

    Does the 2012 actually have sensor-based ("direct") TPMS? I'd be surprised if it did. Most newer models have "indirect" TPMS that detects pressure discrepancies based on wheel speed rather than using pressure sensors.

    The engineering problems are likely insurmountable. It would be like proposing to land a rocket booster section on a barge floating in the middle of the ocean.

    You could post an Auto-Scan from both cars.

    Are both cars complaining about TPMS? Or is it just one of them?
