    The SRX uses a high level TPMS system, as compared to lower level systems which just kick off an idiot light when the pressure gets too low.

    Agreed, presumably this is for ALL gen-2 years? If that changed for 2012, that would explain the new procedure.

    Re: TPMS Re-Learing Tool

    So what's the bottom line here? Is the process described in this thread: http://www.cadillacforums.com/forums...tpms-tire.html no longer valid for 2011 and above SRXs?

    Re: TPMS Re-Learing Tool

    I think we need to clarify something. MnMs, are these TPMS's on a set of new(2nd) set you are putting on and programming? Or is this your first (original) set that you've rotated and need to relearn so the vehicle's DIC display is accurate?

    Re: TPMS Re-Learing Tool

    For previous year GM products, the 'tool' is nothing more than a high intensity magnet in an easy to hold handle. I bought a couple of rectangular 'strong' magnets from (insert local hardware store here) for under $5 and have used them successfully on several prior GM vehicles (placing the base of the tire stem between the magnets when re-learning). To be honest, tho, I have not yet tried them on my 2012 SRX - I would suspect, however, they would still work as the sensors are still RF and the 'tool' merely helps the vehicle locate the specific tire during the relearn sequence. YMMV.

    What year vehicles have you used this technique on? I'm still trying to figure out what to do on my 2011 SRX.

    Thanks for the info!

    I will give the magnets a try in a day or two.

Go to the front drivers side tire and add or remove air for 5sec. stop and wait until the horn honks once. Press the end of the turn signal stalk once, move to the passenger side front and add or remove air for 5sec stop and wait for the horn to sound once. go back and press the end of the stalk once and move to the passenger side rear and do the same procedure, press the stalk and finally move to the left rear and add or remove pressure for 5sec when your done the horn will honk twice. your done. Shut off the car and now go back and bring the tire pressures to 35psi and your ready to go. Remember you need to complete the learning procedure within 2min or you will need to start over. This procedure is in your owners manual that is in your car on page 10-66 to 10-67. The manual on line is different than the one in your car.
    Will this work for the 2010 Model SRX?

    SoCalSRX - The TPMS relearn process for the '11s is detailed on page 10-62 of the .pdf version of your year's Owner's Manual (which is the same procedure detailed in the 2012 OM). That should answer the how - but doesn't answer exactly the 'what with' question. Magnets are inexpensive - buy a pair and give it a shot - if nothing else, you can them use them to hang your kids drawings on the refrigerator...

    GREGCPX - Your relearn procedure is on page 9-65 and 9-66 of YOUR .pdf OM - this procedure is different than the '11 and 12's (does not require a 'tool')...

    The online versions of said OMs can be found here: http://www.cadillac.com/owners/auto-owners-manuals.html

    As always, YMMV...

    Re: TPMS Re-Learing Tool

    All 2010 and SOME 2011 SRX's can use the procedure in your manual pages10-66 and 10-67. Newer 2011 and 2012 cars need the relearning tool. They say. Nobody knows exacty when they changed the procedure during 2011. You will have to look in your manual to see which applies. My early 2011 works using the method in my manual by adding or removing pressure in the tires. It will be interesting to see if the magnets will work.

    Re: TPMS Re-Learing Tool

    Tried the magnets today and they did NOT work. Now keep in mind that I purchased a tire and wheel package from Tire Rack with the tires mounted and the sensors installed. Contacted Tire Rack today and they confirmed that the correct sensors were installed. Next stop is a relearn tool.
