Re: When Tires Are Rotated(Sensors)

can this procedure be used if your are changing over to a set of 4 mounted winter tires that have 4 new GM sensors ?(different than the ones that came with the car) i.e same model/make sensor, but different Serial Number.

I would think that they all transmit at the same frequency, so it ought to work, but would like someone with real world experience. i.e. trying to avoid paying the dealer to "initialize" the system each winter/summer.

I just picked up a tipstool over the internet for about $70. I can confirm that this tool works on our vehicles. It took all of two minutes.

Yes, absolutely RIT333. That's exactly what I have done for my winter wheel set. Even though I'd like to have re-learn tool, I haven't bought one yet. I've just been using the trucks onboard re-learn procedure. [/color]

Pretty cool.

I'd still do it for free because it really is simple.

Re: When Tires Are Rotated(Sensors)

What is the on-board learning procedure? My manual has nothing about it except that a relearn tool is required.

Yep, I saw it there. Man, it sure would have been nice if they had not removed those directions from the manual. Live and learn.

No, GM disabled this feature.
