Make:Chevrolet Model:Express 4500 Sub-Model:Base Year:2009, 2010
Required Tools

Air pump


Activation Tool (AKA trigger tool) such as Ateq VT55 or VT30


1.   Review all data in your owner’s manual pertaining to your TPMS system.


Note: This step should be performed only by a tire technician who has been properly trained in the operation and installation of TPMS systems.

1.   Install Sensors - Properly install tire pressure sensors. 

2.   Tire Pressure - Confirm all tires are inflated to the pressure indicated on tire placard. (the tire placard is located on the door jam of your vehicle)


This is a sample tire pressure placard.

Not for this specific vehicle.

3.   Eliminate Interference - To ensure the control unit memorizes the correct sensor ID, the vehicle with the new sensor must be at least 3 m. (10 ft.) from any other TPMS pressure sensor not installed on that vehicle.


1.   Set the parking brake.

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

3.   Enter re-learn mode. Chose the method below that matches your vehicle.


Remote Keyless Entry (RKE) method

Press and hold the Remote Keyless Entry (RKE) transmitter’s LOCK and UNLOCK buttons, at the same time, for about five seconds to start the TPMS learn mode. The horn sounds twice indicating the TPMS receiver is ready and in learn mode.


Driver Information Center (DIC) Method

Press the Driver Information Center (DIC) vehicle information button until the PRESS √ TO RELEARN TIRE POSITIONS message displays. The horn sounds twice to signal the receiver is in relearn mode. 


Trip Odometer Method

press the trip odometer reset stem located on the instrument panel cluster until the PRESS √ TO RELEARN TIRE POSITIONS message displays

“TIRE LEARNING ACTIVE” message displays.

4.   Upon entering re-learn mode, the driver side front turn signal comes on to indicate that corner’s sensor is ready to be learned. 

5.   Start with the driver side front tire. Place the trigger tool against the tire sidewall close to the rim at the valve stem location, then press and release the Activate button on the tool. 

The horn chirp, which may take up to 30 seconds to sound, confirms that the sensor identification code has been matched to this tire and wheel position.  If you do not hear the confirming single horn chirp, turn the ignition switch to LOCK and start over beginning with Step 2.


1.   Repeat the reset procedure used in step 5 for each of the remaining 3 tires in the following clockwise order:

a.    Right front tire (Front passenger’s side)

b.    Right rear tire (Rear passenger’s side)

c.    Left rear tire (Rear driver’s side)

After hearing the single horn chirp for the driver side rear tire, two additional horn chirps sound to indicate the tire learning process is done. If the double horn chirp does not sound (communication with the receiver stops, or if the time limit has expired), then turn the ignition switch to LOCK/OFF and start over beginning with Step 2.

6.   Turn the ignition switch to LOCK/OFF.

7.   Put the valve caps back on the valve stems.
