Guy Semenario had an issue. Not sure if it was a front though.

Thanks for remembering buddy. It was the rear though. They're going to redo all of them anyway.

Just replaced my wheels. installed new set of freshly powder-coated (changed to black) wheels and 2 days later I'm getting the "service tire monitor" message. Does anyone have any ideas how to fix it?

You have to relearn/resynch/reset the TPMS sensors.

Any tire shop will have a little electronic handheld unit to do this. Or you can do it yourself, but it can be a lengthy process. It involves getting the integration module into a learning mode, then deflating the front drivers tire a certain amount of PSI, it'll honk the horn letting you know it's picked up the change. Then you refill it and it'll again honk the horn to let you know it sees the additional PSI. Repeat the process working around the car from front to back. I'll have to remember how to get the module into pairing mode though. I do it through my Tech2, but there is a non-Tech2 way to do it also.

If doing this doesn't work, then you need new TPMS sensors most likely.

I really appreciate the 411. I was pretty concerned. I have not used these tires yet. They came with the car as the second set with winter rubber and I just had had them colored black. It looks AWESOME!! Thanks again.

You MUST! I'm trying to post one but the size is always off.

Even the center cap matches well. Even my wife noticed :))

----------

The silver caliper now stands out so nicely I'm not sure I need to paint it red. I had reservations but glad did it.

Just created an album.

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
will 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 may also be matched to each tire/wheel position by increasing or decreasing the tire’s air pressure. When increasing the tire’s pressure, do not exceed the maximum inflation pressure indicated on the tire’s sidewall. If using this method to match
TPMS sensors, the complete procedure outlined below must be performed within 15 minutes of the vehicle being stationary.
To decrease air-pressure out of a tire you can use the pointed end of the valve cap, a pencil-style air pressure gage, or a key.
You will have one minute to match the first tire/wheel position, and five minutes overall, to match all four tire/wheel positions. If it takes longer than one minute to match the first tire and wheel, or more than five minutes to match all four tire/wheel positions, the matching process stops and you will need to start over.

The TPM matching process is outlined below:
1. Set the parking brake.
2. Press the push-button ignition switch to Acc.
3. Using the keyless access transmitter, lock and unlock the vehicle’s doors.
4. Press the lock and unlock buttons, at the same time, on the keyless access transmitter. A single horn chirp will sound, indicating that the TPMS is ready, and the sensor matching process
can begin.
5. Start with the driver side front tire.
6. Remove the valve cap from the valve stem. Activate the TPMS sensor by increasing or decreasing the tire’s air pressure for five seconds, or until a horn chirp sounds. The horn chirp, which may take up to 30 seconds to sound, confirms that the sensor identification code has been matched to this tire position.
7. Proceed to the passenger side front tire, and repeat the procedure in Step 6.
8. Proceed to the passenger side rear tire, and repeat the procedure in Step 6.
9. Proceed to the driver side rear tire, and repeat the procedure in Step 6.
10. After hearing the confirming single horn chirp for the driver side rear tire, a double horn chirp will sound to signal the tire matching mode is no longer active. Press the push-button ignition switch to Acc.
11. Set all four tires to the recommended air pressure level as indicated on the tire and loading information label.
12. Put the valve caps back on the valve stems.

Didn't see it in the 2007 manual but I saw it on page 5-72 in the 2008 manual.
Here's the manual I copied and pasted out of.

Thanks, Guy!

That's the process. I do believe step 6 though is reduce tire pressure in the tire by 5psi, not 5 seconds, but not entirely sure.

I just substituted steps 1 - 4 by using the T2.

It worked!! Thanks, guys. Saved $50 by doing it myself
