Default Need help Understanding TPMS

I have two pairs of tires that I use in the winter (OEM) and Aftermarket 23" summer tires. I have been checking into putting TPMS into my 23" rims. They would fit because I have the 23'* wrapped in Kuhmo EXT. Now when I install the Tire Pressure Monitors System in my 23'* would I have to have my Yukon relearn the new TPMS when I change from one set to another. Thanks in advanced and is they have to be relearned Im not sure if its worth it. I have a Innova 3130 OBII would I be able to relearn them with that device?? Take Care,

Im sorry the Tires on the 23" are 305/40/23. Which should have enough height and angle to fit the tires.

I'm pretty sure you'd have to get a set of GM TPMS sensors, and you'd probably have to have them calibrated at a dealer, or using a Tech 2 scanner.

John, are you asking if its possible to remove the sensors from the stock rims and install them into the new rims and have the computer see them?

tire position will have to be reset whether you use the same ones or get new one for the spares, some cars can be reset without the tool. try this

Turn ON the ignition, with the engine OFF.
Apply the parking brake.
Turn the exterior lamp switch from OFF to parking lamps 4 times within 4 seconds. A double horn chirp will sound and the low tire pressure indicator will begin to flash indicating the TPM 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/decrease the tire 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:
5.1. Right front

5.2. Right rear

5.3. 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 kPa/psi. Refer to Vehicle Certification Label .

Hey Mike, I was asking if I got New TMPS sensors to install on my 23" rims because I use these wheels in the summer only because the wide tires are terrible in the snow. I have my original 17" rims and tires with the TPMS already installed for my winter wheels and the error goes away. I was wondering if I could buy 4 new TPMS monitors and install them in my 23" summer wheels to eliminate the warning and chime to check the tire pressure. Is there anyway to calibrate 8 TPMS monitors to my vehicles sensors on each wheel. So I would not have the need to recalibrated every summer and every fall. It would be nice just to change the tires over from one set to another and have the TPMS system recognize each set of wheels. Thank you guys for trying to help, I truly appriciate it. I also have a Innova OBII reader would I be able to change the TPMS monitors on that?? Ive looked everywhere on that device and I dont see anywhere where Im able to change the TMPS frequency.

Based on a little research I have done. I can only assume each sensor has its own unique ID so the computer will know which wheel is at what location of the vehicle. So, in your situation, having 8 sensors, yes, you would have to do a relearn everytime you either A, rotate the tires, or B, swap tires before and after winter.

Another quick search I did, at almost $70 PER sensor, is it really worth it?

Thanks Mike your the man to come to for questions. I found some on Ebay for $144 for all four but are they some off brand that will faulter after 2 months. I would probably need to get the same kind I have in my winter tires and like you said is it worth it. Rotating tires I didnt even know that. My dash just alerts me that a tire needs service so I check all the tires and one is always low, I wonder if I scroll through the alarm more it would tell me what tire is low. I might have to try that out today. Once again thank you so much for all of your help I appriciate it alot. So you think 8 Sensors can be programmed to the same computer in my Denali and I can do what I do now is just check all four if I get the tire is low (or needs service) I cant remember the error it gives. Thanks again though your input is what I needed to here. Take Care and Thanks again.Jonathan

I doubt you could program all 8 in at once. Only 4 at a time.

If its telling you a tire needs serviced, then ya, you need to determine which one its seeing a fault in.
