All four tire pressure sensor IDs must be memorized to the TPMS control unit whenever you do any of these actions: - Replace the TPMS control unit - Replace the tire pressure sensor.

- Substitute a known-good wheel with tire pressure sensor.

NOTE: - The TPMS tool is necessary to do this procedure.

- Let the vehicle sit for at least 5 minutes to allow the tire pressure sensors to switch to sleep mode.

- To ensure the TPMS control unit memorizes the correct ID, the vehicle with the new tire pressure sensor must be at least 10ft (3 m) away from other vehicles that have tire pressure sensors.

- When doing a tire rotation, memorizing the sensors in not needed.

1. With the ignition switch in LOCK (0), connect the HDS to the data link connector (DLC) (A) located under the driver's side of the dashboard.

2. Turn the ignition switch to ON (II).

- If you turn the ignition switch to LOCK (0) before memorizing all four sensor IDs, the memorizing ID is canceled.

- If more than one sensor ID is displayed on the HDS, verify that the vehicle has not been driven for 5 minutes, and there are no other vehicles or tire pressure sensors within 10 ft (3 m).

7. Repeat step 6 for each wheel until all four sensor IDs


7. Repeat step 6 for each wheel until all four sensor IDs are memorized. When all four IDs are memorized, the low tire pressure indicator blinks.

9. Disconnect the HDS from the DLC.

10. Test-drive the vehicle at 28 mph (45 km/h) or more for at least 1 minute.

11. Make sure the low tire pressure indicator does not blink.

12. Make sure the tires are inflated to the specified tire pressure listed on the doorjamb sticker.

13. Turn the ignition switch to LOCK (0).
