    TPS RESET, Saw Faq, Still Have One Question

    So I reprogged my TPS sensors as they werent displaying the tire pressures. It indicated to end on the rear left tire, I however had to end on the rear front right tire.

    FAQ:

    FL
    FR
    RR
    RL

    ME:

    FL
    RR
    RL
    FR

    Im assuming the my sensors are in the wrong rims. Does this mean that the pressure displayed for the FR tire is really the pressure for the RL tire?

    Thanks

    Um, why didn't you just follow the instructions?

    I would just re-do it the correct way. Since they use an RF signal, or whatever, I'd imagine there's a reason for doing it in a specific order. The computer probably sets them in a specific order. After you set each tire, I think you can go look and see which one is registered and which isn't. At least, it appears to be like that, in the instructions. They can't be on the wrong rim, I don't think they have to be on a certain one, just have to be registered in an order.

    The computer learns them in a specific order. That order is LF, RF, RR, LR. Each sensor sends an individual RF signal and is learned by the computer in that order. This is so you can replace the sensors or reprogram the computer when you rotate tires.

    Almostav - You can simpy let out some air from each tire, one at a time, and see which one has changed on your display.

    Did it work correctly? Is it reading the pressures for the correct wheel placement? Sometimes the TPM systems do some funky crap. We deal with them everyday here at an assembly plant.

    The order in the FAQ is correct. Plus the entire procedure is also spelled out for you in the owner's manual. It has taken me a few tries to get the first honk to start the sequence. However, once it gets going, it will work. The key is to let the air out of each tire for a bit (3-5 secs) then wait for the sensor to read the new data. If you don't get an acknowledgement honk right away, let a little bit more air out. And then wait for the honk. Shouldn't take more than 30 seconds per tire.

    Had to let a bunch of air out when I did mine, but it worked. Seemed like more than 5 seconds. I held the pin down till it honked.
