Default Reprogramming/Resetting the TPMS

I searched and found nothing but swapping out wheels discussion. I didn't find much in the manual either.

Is there a way through the DIC to reprogram or reset the TPMS on your own?

I just got my truck back from being rebuilt a week ago and also got a new set of Michelins put on last weekend, but they are the same specs as the Generals so it shouldn't effect it.

Before I take it back to the shop I just wanted to know if there was a way I could reset/test it myself.

Since I got it back the "Service TPMS" light goes on and off randomly, both the icon and the DIC display, it's very annoying.

Anyone got any info? Thanks.

Check your tire pressures, likely have one down just a little and as you drive the tire temp increases therefore increasing tire pressure which would put the service indicator out once it reads to proper specs.

Owers manual should also have more info.

Thanks. I'll try it, but wouldn't it just say one of the tires is low vs. saying the TPMS needs servicing?

I think that is why discount tire charges 5 bucks a wheel anytime the break a tire down with tpms not sure if it is to rebuild them or just to recoup the price on the ones they break though?

in the owners manual on page 389 there is a procedure you can use to relearn the sensors to the correct tire positions. will also let you know if a sensor is busted or not.
