    Tire sensor issues

    Today I got new tires on the car. Much to my chagrin, as I was having the guy adjust the PSI, the gauges were reading the wrong tire. This seems to point to the fact that the sensors are TIRE SPECIFIC (since it didn't appear to re-learn the new tire locations...yet at least) which seems a little odd to me. I didn't have any warnings coming home where I hit 80+ mph so I don't think it's a BIG deal, but if I do have a blowout or PSI problems it will of course read the wrong tire.

    So if this bothers you, make sure to mark your tires as you take em off to have the tires changed. For tire rotation I guess they have to take the tire OFF and switch it and re-inflate. Can anyone corrobrate this?

    Yes, the sensors are wheel specific. The dealer can reprogram them to read the correct locations again.

    Doh. Seems kinda stupid, no? How are you supposed to rotate tires other than at the dealer. Hmm...maybe it's making a little more sense now.

    So did the home instruction set for reprogramming work for you?

    Re: Tire sensor issues

    Haven't tried it, to be honest the pressure is about right I don't want to F with it (I have no compressor at home) if I had known at the shop today I would have done it there. If there's a problem at the track on Sat. I will take care of it, but I hit 110-130mph today 3 times with no issues so I can't see it being a problem.

    Can you reset the tire pressure sensors with a magnet like you can on the C-5's?

    From another thread (meaning accuracy not guaranteed - but until we know otherwise it's assumed to be correct) - the Tire Pressuer Sensors are pn#25763677

    I had two tires replaced already and my tire PSI gauge readings were all wrong. My local dealer re-adjusted them in about 30 min. at no charge.

    Re: Tire sensor issues

    I rotated tires today and used the method described in the FAQ and it seemed to work great! I had an assistant dropping the tire pressures as we did this, and the dash monitor seemed to be responding accordingly as we reset the pressure. So, it seems to work. Did you try this, Cal?

    EDIT: Whoops, just realized this is an old thread. Sorry.

    Re: Tire sensor issues

    Hey Benjet, you say to try the link for the home instruction set for reprogramming. But the link doesnt work, can you direct me to the correct link if there is one? I need to get rid of that annoying message every time I start the car, that says need tire service or whatever it says. Anybody else have a fix for that message every time I start the car. The sensors are not installed on my wheels, cause they did not fit on my 24's. I need someway to disable that feature, please help its annoying!!!!!!!!!!!

    Thanks
