Make:Buick Model:Regal Sub-Model:CXL Year:2011

Required Tools

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

 

Preparation

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

2.   Verify that your vehicle is listed in the application coverage listing of the trigger tool. 

3.   Perform trigger tool software update.

4.   Verify that the OEM trigger tool is working (check battery if needed). 

Installation

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.

Relearn

1.   Set the parking brake.

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

            

3.   Use the MENU button to select the Vehicle Information menu in the Driver Information Center (DIC).

4.   Use the arrow keys (or thumbwheel) to scroll to the Tire Pressure menu item screen.

5.   Press the SET/CLR button to begin the sensor matching process. A message requesting acceptance of the process should display.

6.   Press the SET/CLR button again to confirm the selection. The horn sounds twice to signal the receiver is in relearn mode and the TIRE LEARNING ACTIVE message displays on the DIC screen.

7.   Start with the driver side front tire.

8.   Place the relearn tool against the tire sidewall, near the valve stem. Then press the button to activate the TPMS sensor. A horn chirp confirms that the sensor identification code has been matched to this tire and wheel position.

9.   Repeat step 8 for each of the remaining three tires in this clockwise order:

a.    Right Front (Passenger Side Front)

b.    Right Rear (Passenger Side Rear)

c.    Left Rear (Driver Side Rear)

10.                The horn sounds two times to indicate the sensor identification code has been matched to the driver side rear tire, and the TPMS sensor matching process is no longer active. The TIRE LEARNING ACTIVE message on the DIC display screen goes off.

11.                Turn the ignition to LOCK/OFF.

12.                Set all four tires to the recommended air pressure level as indicated on the Tire and Loading Information label.
