TPMS Won't Re-Learn

TPMS Won't Re-Learn

Postby PartsChaser [OP] » Mar 02 2015, 6:26pm

Hey guys - I've read through all the TPMS re-learn threads, have an issue a bit different I need some input on.

I finally got the new rims/tires/tpms installed for my 09 Silverado.

One issue came up with the TPMS though - thought I'd get your input.

I bought a set of 4 TPMS sensors on Ebay (Seller assured me they are for the 07-13 GM vehicles, 315mhz, etc) PN 25920615 thinking all would be able to be re-learned per the normal process in the owners manual, or via the scan tool at the Goodyear shop.

Not so much.

After monkeying with it for 45 minutes at the shop, the guys say they have to dismount all 4 tires, and "learn" with one of the original factory ones before they can re-program my new TPMS sensors. Curious why they couldn't initially, but hey.

Anyone else have any issues like that?

When I try to do the process via the RKE for 5 seconds, I get the horn chirp to begin the learning process, but no matter how much air I let out, or put in I never get the 1st horn chirp to signal that its learned the driver's front tire either. Thinking I got bad sensors or something just isnt communicating back to the truck.

I had the same issues with a set of sensors in my wife's ride. Ended up finding out they had to be programmed first. Just ended up getting new GM sensors. Gl with yours.

Just curious..why did you need new sensors? Couldn't you use the ones from your oem wheels? Just trying to understand the issue for future reference. And are how close are the after market sensors to the oem ones?

I wanted to keep my OEM wheels intact (for re-sale or otherwise) so I figured I would have 2 completely operational sets. The new ones are identical from what I can tell. I guess there is a process to re-program the new ones, just have to make another appointment to have the tires dismounted and all the sensors learned with the right tools

I know you have to drive on them to wake them up, maybe try it again without doing anything else.

^ This. I drove on mine, before a re-learn, probably 60-80 miles before I got a TPMS light on the dash.

i had to follow these steps to do mine.

STEP BY STEP:
Turn "ON" the ignition, with the engine OFF.
Apply the parking brake. IMPORTANT: If the learn mode cannot be enabled, ensure the TPM system is enabled in the PDM.
Turn the exterior lamp switch from "OFF" to parking lamps 4 times within 4 seconds. A horn chirp will sound and the low tire pressure light will begin to flash indicating the learn mode has been enabled.
CAUTION: Over inflating tires may cause personal injury or damage to the tires and wheels. When increasing tire pressure do not exceed the maximum inflation pressure as noted on the tire sidewall.
IMPORTANT: If a horn chirp does not sound after 35 seconds for any of the 4 sensors, turn the ignition "OFF" to exit the learn mode and repeat the procedure from step 1.
Starting with the left front tire, increase or decrease the pressure for 8-10 seconds, or until a horn chirp sounds. The horn chirp may occur before the 8-10 second pressure increase/decrease time period has been reached, or up to 30 seconds after the 8-10 second pressure increase/decrease time period has been reached.
After the horn chirp has sounded, proceed as in step 4 for the next 3 sensors in the following order:

Right front
Right rear
Left rear
After all sensors have been learned, exit the learn mode by turning "OFF" the ignition.
After the learn mode has been exited, adjust all tire pressures to the recommended psi
After adjusting all tire pressures to the recommended psi, run the tire pressure check in the DIC to see that the correct pressure is listed.

I tried the re-learn process (on mine you have to do the lock/unlock buttons on the remote) as opposed to the parking lamp trick to engage the process.

Problem is once I get the process started (indicated on the DIC) it will never go any further, no matter if I start on the drivers front/rear/etc.
