    Well, I am bent. I like doing these kind of things myself like everyone else who does. But where do people unable or unwilling going to go to get a problem like this fixed? The dealer (rape)? With all due respect to people who work hard for a living, If something as standard as TPMS is beyond the skill level of your average joe tire guy, then my characterization holds (snout).

    OK, the strong magnet doesn't work. So my next question is does the tire bleed down procedure work for the 2013 CTS-V even though use of the "tool" is the recommended procedure, and the bleed down procedure is not mentioned?

    I would like to check the assigment myself because I have had the dealer put on new tires and/or wheels three times on past CTS-V that I have owned and all three times, the wheels were not correctly assigned.

    Here is another link related to the tool, why it was implemented, & when it was phased in (Jan 2011):

    Here is an updated link for the broken 'sandyblogs' TPMS tool info from post # 8:

    Re: 2012 CTS V TMPS reset question

    Resurrecting this thread now that I've switched over to my new winter tire/wheel set. I read the 2013 manual and there is no mention at all of the old method of resetting the TPMS monitors, confirming the observation of others in this thread. They specifically and only discuss how to use the relearn tool to activate the monitors, and in which order Interestingly, the owner's manual also says to go to the dealer for a reset, or call the dealer to ask for a reset tool. I called the parts department at my dealer and they said "that part is for service departments only and we don't sell it".

    So I'll be calling SFX to order the tool tomorrow. In the meantime, my start-up protocol will include ignoring the "service tire pressure monitoring system" message. If there's a backorder as noted by the OP of this thread, I'll have to break down and head to the dealer for help.

    Why did GM have to make a simple process so difficult? Was so easy in my 2009 V.

    So the "old" way of doing it doesn't work on newer cars any longer?

    Link to replace broken one in post #49. It's also available on the SPX site for the El-50448 tool under the 'document library' heading. It explains the reasoning behind the requirement for the tool instead of the old way of setting the sensor.
    This change took place for GM vehicles manufactured after January 2011 according to the document.

    Or just go without the tire monitor for your winter wheels.
