I know there are a few conversations about this on here but I can't find anything stating my specific problem. My brother in law put air in my tires and after he accidentally chose "relearn" when viewing the tire pressure info on the dash. We did not know what to expect so we just let it go for a few minutes and hoped it would work correctly - it obviously did not and this should have never been chosen.

I have read the pages in the manual about how to manually relearn and it seems easy enough but I don't even have the option on the screen to relearn now. My service tire monitor system light is on and I have asked the dealership if I need to bring it in but am having a hard time getting through to them.

This seems like a very quick and easy fix, if only I had the relearn option again. Does anyone know how I can bring this back? I am getting my oil changed Saturday and I have a feeling they would be able to fix it there but I don't know how to explain it to them without making it sound like a dealership issue.

Thanks in advance.

I think you just go to the page that displays the tire pressures and hold the set/clr button to restart learning process.

That is how it was originally done but I have since tried this and nothing comes of it. It gave those same instructions right on the screen before this was done but now it just shows dashes where the numbers should be and does not say anything else.

Sorry, I was doing this wrong. I had the ignition on so the set/clr option was not viewable. I haven't tried it the correct way yet but plan to do so soon. Thanks for your help.

My issue is now resolved and it was a VERY easy fix - taking it to the dealership would have been a huge waste of time. The entire process is outlined in detail on p. 9-57 of the owner's manual but basically:

- turn the ignition to the on position but do not start the engine
- find the TPMS display and press set/clr to relearn (my manual says to press both buttons on the remote keyless entry simultaneously but this did not work for me, pressing set/clr did)
- the horn will honk telling you it is now in relearn mode and you begin with the drivers side front tire.
- use a key, the tip of a pen, or anything like that to begin to let air out of the tire (just press on the nozzle and you will feel air coming out)
- after a few seconds the horn will honk telling you it has recognized the first monitor - move on to the passenger side front tire and do the same thing
- after the horn honks move to the passenger side rear tire, wait for the honk, and then move to the last tire
- you're done - now if necessary top al tired off with the correct amount of error

* a few important things: make sure the car is on but the engine is not running to be able to access the relearn option and make sure you complete the process in the exact order listed in the manual.
