    Default TPMS pressure adjustment

    Can the sensors be set to different pressures? The tires I have (BF A/T) should not be inflated to 60/80 like the door sticker says so the TPMS wont register. Can these sensor pressures be set to lower pressures?

    Hmm, I thoght I remember someone saying that some of the scanner tools could be used to program the TPMS system. Anyone that's a tech know?

    well we have a tool that resents the sensors, some foreign cars take a TPMS exciter tool to relearn basically a scan tool for TPMS but i don't believe GM uses that system

    I found out they can! A local repair shop used a scanner to reset the sensors to 45 pounds. (my BFG A/Ts call for 50 psi). No more problems!!!

    Yes you are! Maybe the dealers scan tool cant do it (which I find hard to believe), but my local repair place was able to do it...it took them awhile to find out where the section was in the scan tool, it wasnt where they thought it should have been... I think it was in the Body section or something to do with the door chimes????
