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.   Turn ignition switch to ON position, with engine off.

2.   Go to the TPM vehicle information screen on the DIC (Driver Information Center). Press set to relearn the sensors. The horn will sound twice to signal the receiver is in relearn mode and “Tire Learning Active” message displays on the DIC screen.  

3.   Starting with the left front tire, place the trigger tool against tire sidewall close to the rim at the valve stem location, then press and release the activate button until a horn chirp sounds.

4.      After the horn chirp has sounded proceed for the next 3 sensors in the following clockwise order: R

a.       Right Front (Passenger Side Front)

b.      Right Rear (Passenger Side Rear)

c.   Left Rear (Driver Side Rear)

5.   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. Turn ignition switch to LOCK/OFF position.
