I just got my new tires and wheels on and my dad's new Sierra came with blackwall tires. I gave him my white letter Dueler's to put on his truck but now he is getting an error message from the TPMS. Everything was working perfectly while on my truck so I was kind of expecting them to work fine for him. A buddy of his is telling him that he will have to take the truck to a dealership and have them do some kind of sync. Anyone have any experience with this?

If both your trucks are the exact same then yea you'll have to relearn each sensor. A dealership can do it or any shop with a relearn tool can do it.

Thanks for the prompt response. The answer sounds counter intuitive since my assumption was that being the same vehicle that they would simply be interchangeable. Oh well. That's what I get for trying to apply common sense.

The owners manual has the TPMS Relearn procedure in it.


The TPMS sensor matching process is outlined below:

1. Set the parking brake.

2. Turn the ignition switch to ON/RUN with the

engine off.

3. Press the Remote Keyless Entry (RKE)

transmitter's LOCK and UNLOCK buttons at the

same time for approximately five seconds. The

horn sounds twice to signal the receiver is in

relearn mode and TIRE LEARNING ACTIVE

message displays on the DIC screen.

If your vehicle does not have RKE, press the

Driver Information Center (DIC) vehicle information

button until the PRESS V TO RELEARN TIRE

POSITIONS message displays. The horn sounds

twice to signal the receiver is in relearn mode and

TIRE LEARNING ACTIVE message displays on

the DIC screen.

If your vehicle does not have RKE or DIC buttons,

press the trip odometer reset stem located on the

instrument panel cluster until the PRESS V TO

RELEARN TIRE POSITIONS message displays.

The horn sounds twice to signal the receiver is in

relearn mode and TIRE LEARNING ACTIVE

message displays on the DIC screen.

4. Start with the driver side front tire.

5. Remove the valve cap from the valve cap stem.

Activate the TPMS sensor by increasing or

decreasing the tire's air pressure for five seconds,

or until a horn chirp sounds. The horn chirp, which

may take up to 30 seconds to sound, confirms that

the sensor identification code has been matched to

this tire and wheel position.

6. Proceed to the passenger side front tire, and

repeat the procedure in Step 5.

7. Proceed to the passenger side rear tire, and repeat

the procedure in Step 5.

8. Proceed to the driver side rear tire, and repeat the

procedure in Step 5. The horn sounds two times to

indicate the sensor identification code has been

matched to the driver side rear tire, and that the

TPMS sensor matching process is no longer

active. The TIRE LEARNING ACTIVE message on

the DIC display screen goes off.

9. Turn the ignition switch to LOCK/OFF.

10. Set all four tires to the recommended air pressure

level as indicated on the Tire and Loading

Information label.

11. Put the valve caps back on the valve stems.

Good luck...Sure beats paying the stealership...

Note: This is from a 2008 GMC Sierra SLE

Just used this to reset my sensors. Didn't know it was in the manual but of course I didn't look either...lol...I have a viper 5901 alarm on mine and just for reference I couldn't get it to work using that remote and had to find my orginal key fob to get it to work.

I also have a 2013 Sierra that has had the tires moved around. I tried to do the relearn procedure but letting the air out of the LF tire does not work. I even tried removing the valve core to speed up the air discharge. Still nothing. I would think the battery in the left front was dead but my monthly GMC report from On Star says all pressures are reporting.
