TPMS Reset on 2008 ARGH!!

I just replaced my wheels and tires with a new set from tire rack. They came with TPMS installed. Now I cannot get my DIC to reset/relearn the new TMPS. I have a Sol with the Remote Keyless entry but it has not been working, so I have tried the procedure for cars without a RKE.

Has anyone else had problems getting new TPMS to relearn??

I haven't been able to get mine reset since I first rotated my tires. I've followed the instructions to the letter with no success either.

I had the same problem with mine. Take it to the dealer as there is a TSB for this. It will need a software update and then everything will work fine.

From Small Dealer:
There is a possible issue with some early 2008 Solstices, where the TPMS can not be updated by the add/release pressure method in the learn mode.




Quote:
Subject: Key Fobs Inoperative, TPM System Not Reading Correctly - Dashes On All Four Tire Readings, DTCs C0775, C0569, B3105 Set, Unable to Program TPM Sensors (Reprogram RCDLR)

2008 Chevrolet Cobalt, HHR, Malibu
2008 Pontiac G5, G6, Solstice
2008 Saturn AURA, SKY

Condition
Some customers may comment that the key fobs are inoperative or that the TPM system is showing dashes as the reading for all four tires.

Technicians may find DTCs C0775, C0569 and B3105 set simultaneously in the RCDLR module.

In addition, the technicians may find Tire Pressure Monitoring sensors are unable to be programmed to the vehicle by adding or releasing pressure to the tire while the vehicles in the TPM learn mode.
Cause
These conditions may be caused by the following:

• The RCDLR may lose its transmitter and tire pressure monitoring data from its memory if a low voltage condition occurs on the vehicle.

• The ability for TPM learning by adding or releasing pressure to the tire has been disabled in the RCDLR.

Correction
Reprogram the RCDLR with an updated software calibration to address both issues listed above.

Once the RCDLR module has been reflashed with the latest software and calibrations, the following may also be necessary:

• Relearn all keyless entry transmitters.

• Reconfigure the tire pressure placards and the tire type.

• Relearn the tire pressure sensors.

Refer to SI for the procedures to relearn transmitters, placard and tire type configuration and tire pressure sensor learn.


GM bulletins are intended for use by professional technicians, NOT a "do-it-yourselfer". They are written to inform these technicians of conditions that may occur on some vehicles, or to provide information that could assist in the proper service of a vehicle. Properly trained technicians have the equipment, tools, safety instructions, and know-how to do a job properly and safely. If a condition is described, DO NOT assume that the bulletin applies to your vehicle, or that your vehicle will have that condition. See your GM dealer for information on whether your vehicle may benefit from the information.

When i purchased my 08 GXP in July the key fobs ,door unlock and tire press were not functioning. My local dealer reprogramed them, no problems since.

Resoldered my key fob and put a new battery in it. So I re-tried setting my TPMS with no luck again. I guess I am going to have to take it to the dealer.

The key fob is needed to reset the TPMS.

Argh!!! Broke down and called the local GM dealer. They are going to charge me $46 to reset the sensors.

DO NOT let them charge you a penny. It's all covered under your warranty.

These are not the original sensors. They are new sensors that came with my tires and rims.

The point is rather moot, tire rotation is normal maintenance which needs a reset (there is even a space on the service req for TPMS).

It's a feature I'm glad I don't have. If it was done right there would be two receivers which could triangulate.

Actually it is a very nice feature to have and works well once they are properly set.

UPDATE: I took my car to a Goodyear tire shop in Annapolis. With their "special tool" they were able to "wake up" the sensors and reset them in about 5 minutes. They charged me $25. The GM Dealership was going to charge $45.

If you are buying new rims and tires and have them installed by someone else, ask them to ensure your stock TPMS will fit the new rims first. If you can keep your original TPM sensors then you probably will not have this issue.

Makes no difference if they are original sensors or not. Read my first post above. You should be able to reset the TPMS with your remote.
Your dealer should have fixed this for nothing.

Negative ghostrider... the TPM's could not be reset with the key fob because they needed to be "woke up" which requires a special tool. They are after market parts so they are not included in the warranty. Anyway, $25 certainly does not make or break me and not worth the hassle of arguing with the dealer about.
