    TPMS Re-Learing Tool

    I understand that when you rotate your tires that it becomes necessary to match the tire pressure sensors to the TPMS and that a special tool is needed. Where can I purchase a DIY style TPMS re-learning tool for a 2012 SRX?

    Re: TPMS Re-Learing Tool

    I found this procedure for relearning the TPMS in the 1st gen CTS section will it work on a 2012 SRX ?

    From what I understand, that is the way to "relearn" the TPMS sensor. The first step may be a little different. (Getting the vehicle into the learn mod.)

    Re: TPMS Re-Learing Tool

    Thanks for the info classic. I also installed new TPMS sensors and the owners manual states that to pair the new sensors with my 2012 SRX TPMS it is necessary to purchase a so called "re-learning tool". I am going to try letting the air out first. Then I will let this forum know.

    Here is the skinny, letting out the air will NOT work period if you installed NEW TPMS sensors on a 2012 SRX. They will need to be registered to the vehicle via a required initialization by a dealer. Or purchase a re-learning tool that range in price from $20 to over $600 which is why many tire shops do NOT have TPMS re-learning tool.

    The relearning tool is for their convinence and is not necessarly required. The tool makes it fast for a dealer to relearn the tire positions with out adding or removing pressure.Your premium coverage should cover having the TPMS programed to each corner. They must have changed the procedure for the 2012 cars because I can change my regular tires and wheels for my snows and do the procedure in my owners manual and it works every time. I have a 2011.

    Re: TPMS Re-Learing Tool

    I just read the procedure you used for the CTS and it is not the proper procedure for our cars. Here is the procedure: Start your car. go to the tire pressure page in the information page. press the end of the turn signal stalk until the horn sounds twice. 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.

    Re: TPMS Re-Learing Tool

    Hate to disagree with you. But the above procedure will not work on 2012. Starting with Late 2011 Model Year GM vehicles and all vehicles build after that point will support just one TPM relearn procedure - the Dealer Procedure. Or the purchase of a learning tool. Is anyone familar with the Relearn Tool (EL-50448) sold by SPX for about $60 ?

    It's one more way for a vendor to nickle and dime you to death.

    Re: TPMS Re-Learing Tool

    Just looked on the GM special tool web site and the SPX tool is on there for $62.33, there is also reference to a pdf file that explains what GM has done. https://gmspecialservicetools.spx.co...0448_rev_1.pdf
    Sorry I was wrong and everyone that has a GM auto built after sometime in 2011 will have to take their car in to have the TPMS sensors relearned or buy a tool.

    Glad I have a 2010. But really, what a crock! The old method works just fine. Why did they need to do this? If you buy your tires from someone besides the dealer, now you'll have yet another trip to the dealer just to get your TPMS reset. Oh! 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?

    My 2012 shows actual pressure on the DIC. Other systems I have seen just show a light when the tire is low, and some don't even say which tire.

    My nearest dealer wants $12 to match all four to the TPMS.
