My first post. Thank you for the instructions for resetting the TPMS because my owners manual does not have the deflating tire pressure procedure. It only has the relearn tool procedure. I just performed it approx 8 lbs per tire deflating. It was very simple. A second person makes it easy.

I just bought a set of winter tires with tpms sensored wheels and did the key fob trick with my 2011 Sierra... Worked perfectly the first time... I only had to put a few psi in each tire when i was done... Personally i think its a slick system when all you need is a tire pressure gauge and an air hose nearby... They should've kept this system in production... Never knew my truck had this capability until i read it on this forum...

Go to any Discount tire, and have them use the scan tool to input the information back into the vehicles computer, it took them all of 5 minuets to do all the tires. There should be no charge for doing this, I hit them up on a slow weekday, when they first opened.

They put the vehicle in the "learn mode", put the butt end of the tool on the tire near the TPMS sensor, and face the front of the tool towards the vehicles computor then press a button, and your done.

Tire stores here charge for that. I bought the $50 tool and do it myself now. 2012's you have to use the tool, takes 3-4 minutes...

I was just wondering. My 2011 doesn't have the "air out" method for reset in the owners manual, but it does work. Has anyone tried it with the 2012+ trucks. Is it for sure GM did away with this more user friendly reset method? Just curious :dunno:

Just another cash grab. If I rotate my tires, ill just keep an eye on them an forget about their 'position'. Why are they making cars so difficult.

It is honestly for the "impaired morons" that drive their vehicles on near flat tires, that our federal government had to step in and mandate the vehicle manufacturers install a system to let you know that your tire or tires are low on air.

I meen, let's face it, if you are to stupid to check your vehicle tires air pressure (I do every 3 months) and adjust it, you should not be behind the steering wheel driving a car.

JMHO

My 2011 GMC manual says to use scan tool, but after reading this thread, I used the let air out for a couple of seconds. It was slow to respond but I was patient and it gave me the 2 chirps when complete. The dash indicated to "service tire system" or something like that, the readings for each of the tires was ----. I did it again and it completed again with the two chirps and all was fine. I aired up to the pressures I wanted and all is good.

 

My truck had been sitting for a day, so perhaps if I had just driven it, the learning procedure would have worked first time around? No worries, it is good now.

 

Thanks for reminding me that this could be done on 2011 GMC Sierra 2500HD.

 

I have seen the magnet tool on Amazon and wonder if that would be more reliable? Perhaps just a strong magnet near the valve stem would work just as good?
