    Resetting the TPS's

    I read in the tips that the tire pressure sensors could be reset by turning the key to the on position hitting the lock unlock on your fob until the horn honks and then putting air in or letting it out of each tire in a particular order.

    Has anyone got this to work? I tried as my TPS dont match the screen on my dash. So the front RH is actually the LH rear etc...I flipped the lock and unlock probably 20 times and no horn so thats as far as I got.
    The tire shop that mounted and balanced the wheels were unable to get it set up with their hand held electronic connector either.

    You don't need any magnets. Just turn the key to on/run but don't start the car. Then on the key fob, hold lock and unlock at the same time until the horn honks. When it does, start at the left front and work your way around. You can either put air in or let it out, doesn't matter.

    Make sure the screen on the dash shows the tire pressures. This got me once.

    Re: Resetting the TPS's

    So if I do get the horn to honk by pressing the lock and unlock at the same time will the horn honk after each wheel is set as described in the above link? I assume it will also honk twice on the last wheel to let me know its the last tire set?

    Re: Resetting the TPS's

    there's different 'tricks' i've seen people do to get the tpms to 'program' (stronger magnets etc)

    we used to hold our special programming tool up to the top of the valve stem, but sometimes that didn't seem to work

    someone gave us a tip to try pointing it through the sidewall of the tire and that seems to work the best

    the sensor is really not very close to the tip of the valve stem, but only a little bit through the sidewall of the tire and the rim edge so give that a try if you haven't

    .... that is if you're using the magnet technique

    Re: Resetting the TPS's

    I had to let 6-8 psi out of each tire to get a horn confirmation. it also seemed to honk only after I stopped releasing air. and yes two honks after the last tire.

    That was the case for me too. I had to let an awful lot of air out, and sometimes it seemed to honk only after I stopped, so maybe that was why it took so much air.

    Re: Resetting the TPS's

    You don't have to keep letting out air till it honks. If they are working properly, I let air out for 2-3 seconds and move on to the next tire. Then it honks, and I let air out the next.

    Yup, I'm with Tony. I let out 2-3# of air (so just a couple/few seconds), stop, wait for the honk, move on.

    Re: Resetting the TPS's

    I can start to program the TPMS sensors, get the honk, let air out of driver frt, honk, then pass frt, honk, then pass. rear, honk. Driver rear no honk. When I get back into the car its the driver front that reads---. WTF. The driver rear says it has 31 psi in it but I didn't get the two honks saying its done. Any ideas. I had a nail in my tire and the pass rear went low with the DIC still reading 33 psi in it. I have tried to re- program fours times over the last month all with the same outcome.
