Can the "over inflate and deflate" method be used to relearn the position of the tires?

That works on my '10, provided you do it in order - clockwise starting from the driver's side front and waiting for the horn with each tire.

Best regards,

Just went through that exercise this morning changing winter wheels to summer.

1. Turn ignition to run, don't start. With remote push lock and unlock buttons together till horn beeps. Dash readout will show TMPS program open.

2. As garfin says go in sequence, LF,RF, RR, LR.

3. Let air out for 10 seconds and stop. Wait up to 30 seconds for horn to beep once. When you finish with the LR the horn will beep twice. Turn off the ignition and add air if necessary.

Thanks. I wish the owner's manual had this info.

Why? And eliminate the possibility of having to seek assistance from your qualified dealer service department??? ;)

Yes it is.
I have a 2012 and the manual only says to go to the dealer so that they can use the special relearn tool. I found out about this method from doing a web search.

When I put the winter tires on this past fall, my tire place used the relearn tool on both the V and the SRX. It worked fine on the SRX, but I had to do the clockwise sequence of adding air to each of the tires for the system to relearn sensors on the V. Couldn't figure that one out...

Sorry then. What a rip; unless it's free!

I guess they removed it from the owner's manual. I could've sworn my 2011 V had this procedure clearly outlined there because I remember doing it and thinking how much of a pain in the ass it was!

This was removed from the manual after 2010 or 2011. All CTSs after that have to use the relearn tool. I found this out the hard way when I changed from summer wheel/tire set to my winter wheel/tire set shortly after delivery of my '13 V. I had to break down and buy a relearn tool. The deflate method worked fine on my '09 V.
