So a while back, I had them fix a flat. They decided to try to re-program the sensors without asking me, because one had stopped working, and thus, instead of having only one not working (due to battery or firestone sabotaging one to make money) now all 4 didn't work, at least not with the car (they were still functional)
Well I decided to buy a new sensor for $13 shipped (well, used)
Went down and had a big argument with them about it...
They really did not want to understand that I just wanted it programmed and not installed in the tire, just so I could get the 3 working again...basically put it back to the way it was before I took it there. which I feel was a fair request.
He scanned them all and then I checked the readout on the car and of course they didn't show up...kept insisting he needs to install it and have pressure in it for it to show up...but...if you have a flat with no pressure, how would that work?
Then I ask how much...and he says he will do it free...sweet...
Then I notice he does something in the car with the ignition...why didn't he do that before? Oh yeah, money.
So he does that and then it honks and then each sensor makes the car honk when he goes to it.
Well now I have all 4 working for only $13 so I'm pretty happy.
I have a bunch of alerts that I have to quit out of when I start the car, and I got tired of it...one was the oil, another was the airbag, and then the TPMS sensors.
Well I changed the oil a week ago but 2 is still annoying.
I removed the airbag to put tweeters in my vents and never got around to putting it back in (passenger, in the dash near windshield)
So that's next on my list.
He's lucky he gave it to me for free though, cause once I saw he actually did something in the car to get the programming activated, I probably wouldn't have been very nice about paying...and I've been fed up with them for their customer service.
Now they won't have to deal with any broken windows or damage to their business. Smart move, old guy with an attitude who saw I was going to watch from the bay and made the right call
