I don't see how this is possible. Are you sure the wheels are not mixed up in the readout? I.e. your LR is shown as RL for instance?

Re: TPMS Reset Procedure

Guess it doesnt matter as long as all the wheels are set to the same pressure.

Re: TPMS Reset Procedure

it does matter, as the vehicle has to know what tire is in which position, unlike most manufacturers, you have to do a complete procedure on these vehicles, as it only has 1 receiver, as in some manufacturers use independent receivers for each wheel, and they do not have a procedure to relearn positions, it does it automatically in some cases.

if you have the vehicle thinking the tires are set in position, say you rotate the tires and now the RF has a leak, well that tire was in the right rear before rotation, and now it has a leak, but the vehicle thinks its in the right rear, because the vehicle was never reset to have the tire positions learned.

easiest way to tell is with a tech 2 and the kent moore tool for the TPM systems. you can diagnose systems relatively easy with both tools.
it gives you the ability to view which sensor is in each wheel, by providing individual TPM sensor ID's unique to each wheel and vehicle. if you have a system that is suspect to have an issue with the system, you can verify that the vehicle knows where each tire is placed, it will display the ID information on the tech 2 for each individual wheel, and which position they are in.

Re: TPMS Reset Procedure

Lets say my dealer rotated my tires and I don't know if they did this procedure. I assume its ok to do it myself even if I would in effect be doing it over again??

If you're not sure if the dealer did it, you can either do it yourself, or do a test by letting pressure out of, say, the left front, then checking the DIC (driver information center) to see if it matches.

My dealer skipped the step, so I performed the reset procedure and it went fine. My only issue was that the blinkers didn't indicate which wheel to do, so I had to just follow the instructions without that additional aid.

Re: TPMS Reset Procedure

Got the 2nd tire rotation yesterday and reset TPMS. It worked great as usual. Just for curiosity, I paid some attention to the turn signals this time as there have been some complaints that the signals did not come on. The signals did come on for me. They flashed only one time very quick after the chirp sounded (about 1 sec or less). So you have to pay close attention to recognize it. As stated in other thread, this turn signal flash is obsolete because you already know the tire order needs to be done.

Re: TPMS Reset Procedure

This seems like a whole lot of work for nothing. Is it absolutely necessary? I am getting mine rotate this Friday and I am not sure if I want to go to the trouble to do all of this lol.

Re: TPMS Reset Procedure

If the dealer rotates them they're also supposed to reset it. If they don't (like mine did last time) take it back in and ask them to finish the job.
