I put 2010 Escalade rims on my 2006 and the sensors from those rims do not work with my 2006. Is there a way to turn the low tire pressure light off as well as the Service Tire Pressure warning on the DIC ?

If I get the same model# sensors that are in my winter rims will I be abot to program them using the deflate tire method ? or will a dealer have to program the new ones ?

You can do the 'deflate tire method yourself. I did.

Sensors:
http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/BRAN...ptZMotorsQ5fCarQ5fTruckQ5fPartsQ5fAccessories

Instructions:
TPM Sensor Identification Codes
Each TPM sensor has a unique identification code. Any
time you rotate your vehicle’s tires or replace one or
more of the TPM sensors, the identification codes
will need to be matched to the new tire/wheel position.
Each tire/wheel position is matched to a sensor, by
increasing or decreasing the tire’s air pressure.
The sensors are matched to the tire/wheel positions in
the following order: left front (LF); right front (RF);
right rear (RR) and left rear (LR).
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 and wheel positions the
matching process stops and you will need to start over.

The TPM sensor matching process is outlined below:

1. Set the Parking brake.

2. Turn the ignition switch to RUN with the engine off.

3. Turn the exterior lamp switch from “Off” to “On” four
times within 3 seconds. A double horn chirp will
sound and the TPM low tire warning light will begin
to flash. The double horn chirp and flashing
TPM warning light indicate that the TPM matching
process has started. The TPM warning light
should continue flashing throughout the matching
procedure. The SERVICE TIRE MONITOR
message will be displayed on the Driver Information
Center (DIC).

4. Start with the left (driver’s side) front tire.

5. Remove the valve cap from the valve cap stem.
Activate the TPM sensor by increasing or
decreasing the tire’s air pressure for 10 seconds,
then stop and listen for a single horn chirp.
The single horn chirp should sound within 15
seconds, confirming that the sensor identification
code has been matched to this tire and wheel
position. If you do not hear the confirming single
horn chirp, you will need to start over with step
number one. To let air-pressure out of a tire you can
use the pointy end of the valve cap, a pencil-style
air pressure gage or a key.

6. Proceed to the right (passenger’s side) front tire,
and repeat the procedure in step 5.

7. Proceed to the right (passenger’s side) rear tire,
and repeat the procedure in step 5.

8. Proceed to the left (driver’s side) rear tire, and
repeat the procedure in step 5.

9. After hearing the confirming horn chirp for the left
rear tire, check to see if the TPM warning light is
still flashing. If yes, turn the ignition switch to OFF.

10. Set all four tires to the recommended air pressure
level as indicated on the Certification/Tire label or
the Tire and Loading Information label.

11. Put the valve caps back on the valve stems

The spare tire does not have a TPM sensor. If you
replace one of the road tires with the spare, the CHECK
TIRE PRESSURE message will be displayed on the
DIC screen. This message should go off once you
re-install the road tire containing the TPM sensor. The
SERVICE TIRE MONITOR message is displayed
when the TPM system is malfunctioning. One or more
missing or inoperable TPM sensors will cause the
service tire monitor message
