MERGED: TPMS/Tire Pressure Sensor Info

Guys my dashboard tire pressure indicator is wired backwards. I had the low pressure waring go off. Stopped to air up the front as was indicated and and I watched the rear tire pressure increase. Is this crazy or did the something go wrong with the tire rotation?

Re: Tire pressure Front is Back and Back is Front

Your sensor where not reset when the tires where rotated. You just need to reset, according to your owners manual. That, or leave it until the next rotation, and remember which is where. There is a thread on here as well for resetting the monitors. It's actually pretty easy if you have a compressor.

The same happened to me just took mine in for a tire rotation and the dealer didn't reset as they should have. Took back into them they hooked up a small box to each tire and reset them all. Took less then 2 minutes.

Resetting the TPMS, I believe it's in Section 5 of the manual. You do need a compressor though, as part of the procedure is to let air out of the tires so that the sensors can sense which tire is being manipulated. So, you'll need the compressor to fill the tires back up to 35 psi when you're all done!

I've never reset mine on either my Acadia or Silverado.&#160; If the TPMS shows one of the tires as low I'll just use a tire gauge (remember those?) to find out which one it is.

with you on that one, not worth the hassel. IMO it is just a gimmick that tickles some persons faanncy.

Can't you just relearn tire positions through the DIC?

heck no, they should have made it that easy, but not sure how the comp. would know which pressure was where.

Re: Tire pressure Front is Back and Back is Front

So what is the use of the relearn tire position; time for the owner's manual
