Question about 2008 Chevrolet Tahoe
TPMS Sensor Matching Procedure
Each TPMS sensor has a unique identification code. Any time you rotate your vehicle's tires or replace one or more of the TPMS sensors, the identification codes will need to be matched to the new tire/wheel position. The sensors are matched to the tire/wheel positions in the following order: driver side front tire, passenger side front tire, passenger side rear tire, and driver side rear tire using a TPMS diagnostic tool. See your dealer/retailer for service.
The TPMS sensors can also be matched to each tire/wheel position by increasing or decreasing the tire's air pressure. If increasing the tire's air pressure, do not exceed the maximum inflation pressure indicated on the tire's sidewall.
To decrease air-pressure out of a tire you can use the pointed end of the valve cap, a pencil-style air pressure gage, or a key.
You have two minutes to match the first tire/wheel position, and five minutes overall to match all four tire/wheel positions. If it takes longer than two minutes, to match the first tire and wheel, or more than five minutes to match all four tire and wheel positions the matching process stops and you need to start over.
The TPMS sensor matching process is outlined below:

The Key to sucsess is to let out about 5 seconds of air then stop and wait for horn cherp. Don't keep letting air out until cherp. Do this for all tires in the correct order, LF,RF,RR,LR.

I assume you want to know the correct tire pressure. Look both under the fuel fill lid and on the drivers door jamb for the sticker that tells you this data. Order an owners manuel for the car as there is a lot of info you might be interested in

you cannot do it yourself,either contact a gm dealer or possibly a tire store-there is a little hand held remote that you have to set up against each individual tire to recalibrate the sensors
