Thread: TPMS question

Hybrid View

  1. #1

    Default TPMS question

    I just had my tires rotated. I now have a low pressure alarm for the left rear. So I stop at Sheets to put air in the tire. The pressure in the rear was at 43psi. So I check the front. It was the front tire that was low. How do the monitors know which corner they are on? Is there a way to correct this?

    the shop should have reset the tpms for you. I do not have the system but know that is a problem. I think there is a simple way to do it but dont remember.

    In your owners manual is the procedure for your tpms. On my wife's 06 H3 you turn the key a number of times then something else, then the horn blows then you go to the front left, release air for about 10 seconds the horn will blow again the go to the right front release air then so on and so on... But your owners manual has the right procedure for your vehicle. Be patient, it took me about two times to get it on the first try. A little tip remove all the valve caps so your not rushing around. Hope this helps.

    It should be in the owners manual but if all else fails I think you can disconnect the battery and they will reset!

    I got this issue on my used truck I just bought... I tried the method in the book and just couldn't get it to work. I did get on honk after the initial 2 honks but that was it... Any other tips?!? LOL
