TPMS Reset Procedure
Make:Chevrolet Model:Silverado 1500 Classic Sub-Model:Hybrid Year:2007
Required Tools

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 with the engine off.

3.   Turn the exterior headlight switch from OFF to parking lamps 4 times within 4 seconds. A double horn chirp will sound and the TPMS low tire pressure indicator will begin to flash to indicate the learn mode has been enabled. 

If the headlight switch does not enable the TPMS learn mode, then use the learn button on the dash.

4.   Start with the driver’s side front tire.

5.   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 will chirp once within 30 seconds, confirming that the sensor identification code has been matched to the tire and wheel position.   If the vehicle is equipped with a Driver Information Center (DIC), the low tire message will display.

If you do not hear the confirming single horn chirp, turn the ignition switch to LOCK and start over, beginning with Step 2.


If Oro-Tek universal sensors are installed (OTI-001). Due to the multi protocol function of these sensors, releasing air pressure from the tires will not trigger the sensor to transmit its ESN (Electronic Serial Number) to the ECU (Electronic Control Unit). You will need an electronic trigger tool to facilitate transmission of ESN to the ECU.

6.   Repeat the reset procedure 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)

7.   After hearing the confirming horn chirp for the driver side rear tire, check to see if the TPMS low tire warning light (and the DIC LOW TIRE message, if equipped) has turned off.

If the low tire warning light (and the SERV TPM message on the DIC ) is on after completing Step 7 for the driver side rear tire, the sensor relearn process has not been successful. Turn the ignition switch to LOCK/OFF and repeat the process beginning with Step 2.

8.   Turn the ignition switch to LOCK/OFF. 

If you reduced the air pressure to learn the sensors then, set all four tires to the recommended air pressure level as indicated on the Tire and Loading Information label.

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

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