After tire rotation, reprogramming is required. 1. key on engine off, parking brake on. 2. turn park lights on and off 4 times you will hear a horn chirp twice, you are in program mode. Start at L/F tire release air for 10 seconds, wait 15 seconds until horn chirp, after chirp go to R/F tire do the same until horn chirp then R/R let air out til the chirp then L/R do the same after the L/R chirp, turn key off and you are done, note you have only 5 min. to complete. If you do not hear horn chirp at each tire, you will have to start from beginning. When complete, remember to add air to each tire, 35 psi is recommended.

If you are talking about your low tire pressure sensors, theres a button in the glove compartment. Press it for 5 seconds to reset the sensors.

How reset the flat tire on a 2006 bmw 550i

The tire pressure monitors I have seen require you to drive a certain distance after correcting the low pressure condition.I believe it uses the wheel speed sensors to detect a tire with low pressure(then one that is low will be essentially be giving a different reading because it is rotating more times at a given speed).I am assuming the system IS sensitive enough to get a false reading if one of the tires is a mismatched size,so keep this in mind.

Have had my sensors scanned an all are reading on scanner, when i activate tire learning mode the front will read but the rear wont read at all, have grounded the antenna remove the caps, let air out an in...

most of these cars you have to drive the car to reset the tire monitor to get a reading on it.the monitor can`t reset if the car isn`t driven so it can monitor wheel speed as this is how it knows if a tire has too little air in it compared to the other tires.less air more wheel rotation(has to spin more to keep up to other wheels),more air less wheel rotation.

How can I retrain the TPM system after tire rotation?

The sensors aren't wheel specific, the tire rotation won't have any effect on the reading as long as the pressure is set correctly. Just allow the unit 2 minutes to connect to the sensors in the wheels.

2010 cobalt need 2 know how 2 reset low tire pressure monitor

The low tire pressure warning should go out if you set all of the tire pressures to the correct pressure, then drive the vehicle for about a mile. You should not have to "relearn" the Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) unless the tires are (A.) rotated into different positions or (B.) There is a bad sensor that needs to be replaced.

For more information, you can read the information in your Owner's Manual. Here is a link to a pdf version 2009 Cobalt owners manual. (The information and procedures are the same for 2008 - 2010 Cobalts) The TPMS section starts on page 5-64

Message Warning - Tire Pressure System Maintenance Required - Does this mean a sensor is out as I have checked tire pressure to ensure 34 lbs. pressure in each?

If you've had the tires rotated or installed new tires recently they may have installed the wrong wheel in the wrong location. This can cause false readings from the tire pressure sensor readings. Make sure the wheels are in the proper position on the vehicle.

My front wheel sensor shows low tire pressure, but it is fine. Is there a reset for that?

If its reading low and the tire pressure is correct there is a problem with that sensor. Typically they need to be replaced in order to correct the problem. A TPMS tool capable of displaying TPMS sensor data would confirm the bad reading.

They display the tire pressure as a convenience. They don't have to display the pressures and many makes/models do not.

The level of sophistication with these systems is slowly improving. Many newer models will automatically know where the tire is and display it correctly. Unfortunately yours need to be relearned manually after every tire rotation which is very common with earlier systems. It is assumed that this is done after every tire rotation which would then make the displayed tire locations correct.

If you are confident that the correct tire location is being displayed than I wouldn't see any issue with replacing that sensor. If you are not confident the correct tire location is being displayed than it wouldn't be a bad idea to do a relearn procedure.

The TPMS matching process is outlined below:
1. Set the parking brake.
2. Turn the ignition switch to ON/RUN with the
engine off.
3. Press and hold the Remote Keyless Entry (RKE)
transmitter's LOCK and UNLOCK buttons, at the
same time, for about five seconds to start the TPMS
learn mode. The horn sounds twice indicating the
TPMS receiver is ready and in learn mode.
4. Start with the driver side front tire. The driver side
front turn signal also comes on to indicate that
corner's sensor is ready to be learned.
5. Remove the valve cap from the tire's valve
stem. Activate the TPMS sensor by increasing
or decreasing the tire's air pressure for about
eight seconds. The horn chirp, can take up to
30 seconds to sound. It chirps one time and then
all the turn signals flash one time to confirm the
sensor identification code has been matched to
the tire/wheel position.
6. The passenger side front turn signal comes on to
indicate that corner sensor is ready to be learned.
Proceed to the passenger side front tire and
repeat the procedure in Step 5.
7. The passenger side rear turn signal comes on to
indicate that corner sensor is ready to be learned.
Proceed to the passenger side rear tire and
repeat the procedure in Step 5.
8. The driver side rear turn signal comes on to
indicate that corner sensor is ready to be learned.
Proceed to the driver side rear tire, and repeat
the procedure in Step 5.
9. After hearing the single horn chirp for the driver
side rear tire, two additional horn chirps sound
to indicate the tire learning process is done.
Turn the ignition switch to LOCK/OFF.
If no tires are learned after entering the TPMS learn
mode, or if communication with the receiver stops, or
if the time limit has expired, turn the ignition switch to
LOCK/OFF and start over beginning with Step 2.
10. Set all four tires to the recommended air pressure
level as indicated on the Tire and Loading
Information label.
11. Put the valve caps back on the valve stems.

This info can also be found on page 5-66 of your owners manual.

Left front Tire Pressure Low Warning , Tire Pressure Good Scroll Though Menu and Indication on Dash reads 1 psi is it the wheel sensor or does the sysytem have a nother fault or require recalibrated

Have you rotated tire positions? Anyway, if all tires seem to be physically stable, give it a few more runs and another mileage. The 1 psi reading should increase and improve significantly. If not, it is best to have your tires recalibrated, from there you can easily determine if that sensor is at fault or not.

Don't go to the dealer, unless you just have too much money. Call around to tire shops in your area and see if anyone has a "Bar-Tech" tool or a similar device that will reset your sensors for you and HUGE savings.

What does it mean when you reset the low tire sensor on a 2002 toyota Sienna and comes back on? The tire pressure has been checked and its fine.

You have to "Teach" the tire sensors to the correct pressure. The 02 Sienna does not measure the actual PSI tire pressures, it measures the RPM of the tires. with the tires set to specs, the rotation RPM is "x". If a tire goes low, the rotation RPM would bt "y", and that will light the light.

The proceedure: Set the tires to specs with a known good pressure gauge. The ones that you can put in your pocket, that looks like a pen, are alway sincorrect. Get one with a needle reading. Set the tires correctly. Now, press the reset button, hold it until the light blinks 3 times. Drop it into gear, and DRIVE IT. 8-12 miles, above 19 MPH, and UNDER 61 MPH. This will re-teach the ABS computer the correct values.
