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.
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
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.
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
The TPMS sensor matching process is outlined
- Set the parking brake.
- Turn the ignition switch to ON/RUN with the engine off.
- Press the Remote Keyless Entry (RKE) transmitter's LOCK and UNLOCK buttons
at the same time for approximately five seconds. The horn sounds twice to signal
the receiver is in relearn mode and TIRE LEARNING ACTIVE message displays on the
- Start with the driver side front tire.
- Remove the valve cap from the valve cap stem. Activate the TPMS 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 to sound,
confirms that the sensor identification code has been matched to this tire and
- Proceed to the passenger side front tire, and repeat the procedure in Step
- Proceed to the passenger side rear tire, and repeat the procedure in Step 5.
- Proceed to the driver side rear tire, and repeat the procedure in Step 5.
The horn sounds two times to indicate the sensor identification code has been
matched to the driver side rear tire, and the TPMS sensor matching process is no
longer active. The TIRE LEARNING ACTIVE message on the DIC display screen goes
- Turn the ignition switch to LOCK/OFF.
- Set all four tires
to the recommended air pressure level as indicated on the Tire and Loading
- Put the valve caps back on the valve stems.
