Is anyone familar with the Relearn Tool (EL-50448) sold by SPX for about $60 ?
    If that's really true, I will be pulling my tpms sensors off and putting them in a pressure vessel.

    Unfortunately, I get to concur with you (not unfortunately I'm concurring with you - unfortunately that the magnets don't work )... I tried today on my OEM tires (what else am I going to do when it's 15 degrees and snowing?)... The magnets didn't work - and I also noticed the stems on these rims are much more 'plasticy' than the previous TPMS stems I've dealt with using the magnets. Sigh.

    Re: TPMS Re-Learing Tool

    I think we've gotten to the right answer. GM changed the learning technique from using a magnet to needing a special tool. https://gmspecialservicetools.spx.co...s.aspx?id=5677
    I don't think I'm going to rush right out and buy one but it is nice to finally get to the bottom of the TMPS question.

Maybe they can find something wrong with you car while it's there and make even more money off of you. Now, can someone give me a GOOD reason why GM did this?
    I am in the wheel business and can not spend the time letting air out of each tire to get a reading, so several years ago I purchased a Bartec TPIS tool new from E-Bay, I probably reset 100 friends and customers car/trucks a year, takes about 10 seconds with the Bartec tool, roughly as long as it takes to remove one valve stem cap.

    Today I tested a relearn tool (ATEQ VT5) from Tire Rack on my 2012 SRX. It worked like a charm and in less than (1) minute I had all four tires relearned. It sure beats the h@ll out of letting the air out and then adding air.

    Just make sure that you press the tip of this tool on the side wall of your tire near the valve stem.

    Re: TPMS Re-Learing Tool

    Staying with the 2012 models (Late 2011 models also) What is the part number for these new tire sensors? Someone said that it should be:
    20922900 (GM Part number) Is this correct? and will older sensors from early 2011 and before work on the 2012? I think those may have a 25920615 or 20923680 numbers.

    I had a donut magnet that you could use on some sensor as well. Those won't work anymore?

    Take care in that the 2011 TS may not work with your 2012 OBC. I dont know the part number.

    Question Syncing wheels after rotation?

    Owners Manual says to take it to the dealer OR talk with your dealer about a special tool to purchase. I rotate tires about every 3000-4000 miles, depending on use (it's just an OCD). Does anyone have a sync tool, probably Kent Moore, that will accomplish this? Is there another method? One of my neighbors mentioned a magnet??????

    Re: TPMS Re-Learing Tool

    Merged into a thread all about tire learning tools and 2011+ SRXs with TPMS.

    Also, if it hasn't been clarified, only a tpms re-learn tool will work. (Like a GM/Kent Moore EL-50448)

    I just bought the tool for $80. These days, that seems dirt cheap to me.

    Thanks for your patience and answer. However, unless I missed something in the posts, I didn't see a definitive answer for TIRE ROTATION on a 2012 SRX, only for relearning NEW sensors. Is the tool needed specifically for TIRE ROTATION?

    Thanks again....

    Re: TPMS Re-Learing Tool

    If you rotate your tires and want the display to show the appropriate wheel, then yes you need the tool for the vehicle to relearn the new positions.

    If you keep track of which wheel is where, you dont absolutely need the tool.
