Question about 2003 Cadillac Seville
I need to reset computer recognition of tire pressure monitors after wheel/tire rotation. can you tell me the proceedure? I have the original Key and Fob (which i didnt have at the tire store) at home so i would like to do this myself.
From 2005 STS Owners manual:
Each TPM sensor has a unique identification code. Any
time you replace one or more of the TPM sensors,
the identification codes will need to be matched to the
new tire/wheel position. Each tire/wheel position is
matched, to a sensor, by increasing or decreasing the
tire’s air pressure. The sensors are matched, to the
tire/wheel positions, in the following order: left front (LF),
right front (RF), right rear (RR), and left rear (LR).
You will have one minute to match the first tire/wheel
position, and five minutes overall, to match all four
tire/wheel positions. If it takes longer than one minute,
to match the first tire and wheel, or more than five
minutes to match all four tire/wheel positions the
matching process stops and you will need to start over.
The TPM matching process is outlined below:
1. Set the parking brake.
2. Press the push-button ignition switch to OFF/ACC.
3. Using the Keyless Access transmitter, lock and
unlock the vehicle’s doors.
4. Press the lock and unlock buttons, at the same
time, on the Keyless Access transmitter. A single
horn chirp will sound, indicating that the TPM
system is ready, and the sensor matching process
5. Start with the left (driver’s side) front tire.
6. Remove the valve cap from the valve stem.
Activate the TPM sensor by increasing or
decreasing the tire’s air pressure for five seconds,
or until a horn chirp sounds. The horn chirp,
which may take up to 30 seconds, confirms that the
sensor identification code has been matched to
this tire position. To decrease the tire’s air-pressure
use the pointy end of the valve cap, a pencil-style
air pressure gage or a key.
7. Proceed to the right (passenger’s side) front tire,
and repeat the procedure in Step 6.
8. Proceed to the right (passenger’s side) rear tire,
and repeat the procedure in Step 6.
9. Proceed to the left (driver’s side) rear tire, and
repeat the procedure in Step 6.
10. After hearing the confirming double horn chirp, for
the left rear tire, exit the matching process by
turning the ignition switch to OFF/ACC.
11. Set all four tires to the recommended air
pressure level as indicated on the tire and loading
12. Put the valve caps back on the valve stems.

This worked like a champ for me. I purchased a 2 pack of ceramic ring magnets MODEL 542021 from Lowe's and followed the magnet fix. I actually placed both magnet over top of the valve stem and mind them back and forth slow and it worked like a charm!

I have a 2003 STS and i purchased a new TMP because i broke one trying to get the Allm cover off.
Din't know that it wold not work by just replacing it. Called parts guy at GM dealership where i bough it, he told me to go to the owners manule . Well it told me I had to get the dealer and that so called special tool to reset the TPM. I found this site and the answer i needed But he for got to add that as you do each tire it has to chirp before u move to the next one and then 2 chirps on the last tire . Thanks for the Info though.
