    Re: TPMS sensor Problem

    From the 2010 Manual, which is a good resource:

    TPMS Sensor Matching Process
    Each TPMS sensor has a unique identification code. Any time you replace one or more of the TPMS sensors or rotate your vehicle's tires, the identification codes need to be matched to the new tire/wheel position. The sensors are matched to the tire/wheel positions in the following order: driver side front tire, passenger side front tire, passenger side rear tire, and driver side rear tire using a TPMS diagnostic tool. See your dealer/retailer for service. The TPMS sensors can also be matched to each tire/wheel position by increasing or decreasing the tire's air pressure. If increasing the tire's air pressure, do not exceed the maximum inflation pressure indicated on the tire's sidewall. To decrease the tire's air-pressure use the pointed end of the valve cap, a pencil-style air pressure gage, or a key. You have two minutes to match the first tire/wheel position, and five minutes overall, to match all four tire/wheel positions. If it takes longer than two minutes, to match the first tire and wheel, or more than five minutes to match all four tire and wheel positions, the matching process stops and you need to start over. The TPMS matching process is outlined below:
    1. Set the parking brake.
    2. Turn the ignition switch to ON/RUN with the engine off.
    3. Press the Remote Keyless Entry (RKE) transmitter's lock and unlock buttons at the same time for approximately five seconds. The horn sounds twice to signal the receiver is in relearn mode and Tire Learning Active message displays on the DIC screen.
    4. Start with the driver side front tire.
    5. Remove the valve cap from the valve stem. Activate the TPMS sensor by increasing or decreasing the tire's air pressure for 10 seconds, or until a horn chirp sounds. The horn chirp, which can take up to 30 seconds to sound, confirms that the TPMS sensor identification code has been matched to this tire position.
    6. Proceed to the passenger side front tire, and repeat the procedure in Step 5.
    7. Proceed to the passenger side rear tire, and repeat the procedure in Step 5.
    8. Proceed to the driver side rear tire, and repeat the procedure in Step 5.
    9. After hearing the confirming horn chirp, for the driver side rear tire, the horn sounds two more times to signal the tire learning mode is no longer active. Turn the ignition switch to LOCK/OFF.
    10. Set all four tires to the recommended air pressure level as indicated on the tire and loading information label.
    11. Put the valve caps back on the valve stems.

    Perhaps contacting the seller of your product would be your first thing to do.

    Here is another post on TPMS:

    TPMS Reset

    1. Set the parking brake.
    2. Turn the ignition switch to ON/RUN with the engine off.
    3. Press the Remote Keyless Entry (RKE) transmitter & rsquo;s lock and unlock buttons at the same time for approximately five seconds. The horn sounds twice to signal the receiver is in relearn mode and Tire Learning Active message displays on the DIC screen.
    4. Start with the driver side front tire.
    5. Remove the valve cap from the valve stem. Activate the TPMS sensor by increasing or decreasing the tire & rsquo;s air pressure for 10 seconds, or until a horn chirp sounds. The horn chirp, which can take up to 30 seconds to sound, confirms that the TPMS sensor identification code has been matched to this tire position.
    6. Proceed to the passenger side front tire, and repeat the procedure in Step 5.
    7. Proceed to the passenger side rear tire, and repeat the procedure in Step 5.
    8. Proceed to the driver side rear tire, and repeat the procedure in Step 5.
    9. After hearing the confirming horn chirp for the driver side rear tire, the horn sounds two more times to signal the tire learning mode is no longer active. Turn the ignition switch to LOCK/OFF.
    10. Set all four tires to the recommended air pressure level as indicated on the tire and loading information label.

    Re: TPMS sensor Problem

    Alex it it a possibility that you received a bad sensor dfor the driver side rear. Try swapping the two rear tires. If your re-learn stops ar the right rear, you know for certain that the sensor in that wheel is bad.

    If you have directional tires, you'll have to swap back and re-learn.

    you could accomplish the same by altering the sequence rather than physically swap tires.
    Fool it into thinking you are at the RR when you are actually at the LR.
    Either way you have to re program when you are done.
