What parts are required to retrofit TPMS onto a 2006? Obviously the sensors, and I'm guessing some box that sits on the CAN bus. Anything else? Has anyone done this before?
I'm pretty sure this feature is built into the receiver for the keyfob. Does the car already have power locks? As above, you'd need a body computer programmed for it, and PROBABLY a different cluster to actually have the display.What parts are required to retrofit TPMS onto a 2006?

I doubt the radio tells the DIC how to display the info, the cluster probably needs to be programmed to understand that TMPS data is on the GMLAN, and how to display it.John from Kentucky got it right (I think).
Don't think you'd need a new cluster slab8, pretty sure the regular one (provided it has a DIC) will display what it needs to.
The current RCLDR wiring to the BCM *IS* via GMLAN. The old (2006) unit was apparently just an logic enable signal. Given that you need a new RCLDR, and new BCM (and thus probably a new ECM) and/or some unknown amount of programming to make it all work, the cost and risk seems (to me) to far outweigh the benefit.Wiring between the RCLDR and BCM may be GMLAN, but I haven't checked.
