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

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.

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?

I've been researching the TPMS system on the new truck. I've read on the board that it is possible to reset by letting air out of tires starting at the drivers front side and going around the truck. However, there's nothing in my owner's manual (at least that I've found) that says this will work with the 2011's. Has anyone tried it with the 2011 trucks or any of you dealer guys know if the 2011's can be reset by letting pressure out of the tires?
Yes I just did it and it works great, turn key to on Don't star engine, press both lock and unlock together until horn sounds, start with driver front then drain air until horn sound then pass front repeat then pass back repeat then driver back repeat , got new tires and Sam didn't do it, work like a champ.
