Tire Air Pressure reset.

Well..many many moons ago I rotated my tires and I thought the computer would pick up on that and everything would be fine. Yesterday I was sitting in my church's parking lot before the other sound people showed up and noticed one of my tires was reading high. So I went and let some air out and rechecked it..that one stayed the same but the tire in the rear was now low by a few PSI.

The front is the rear and the rear is the front.
Is there a way to reset the TAPs (preferably through the DIC) without having to remove the tires and physically change them around? Because that's not going to happen.
This is on the G5, btw.

Well on the Camaro you can reset the tire sensors from the DIC VIM.

One of the more painfull things manufactures have come up with on vehicles is the tire pressure monitor.

As someone whos driven a few cars over the years, you can tell when a tire is low. What happened to the days when you checked them once a month or so. My wife has it on her Caddy.

People have gotten to lazy, and the manufactures are helping that cause.

On my truck you have to turn the ignition to on for accessories, but not turn on the engine. Then you have to select the TPMS on your readout and tell the computer you want to reset it. The horn will beep once then you are supposed to start with front driver side tire and either let air out or put air in until the horn beeps. Then move to the passenger side front tire, do the same till it beeps and so on till you get done. I think the horn is supposed to beep twice when you are through with all four tires. Don't know if its the same on yours but it shouldn't be much different cuz they are both GM vehicles. I always leave the manual for the vehicle in the glove box for easy access. ***Note*** I think you also need the parking brake on to.

Yeah I normally leave the manual in my vehicle's glovebox..but I took it out to look at something and never put it back in. Shame on me.

EDIT: Yeah..just checked in the manual..there are two ways to activate it..either using the DIC buttons or with the Remote Keyless Entry fob. Considering it's on-and-off raining right now..I'm not going to go out there and mess with it right now.

Good luck with it when you try. I rotated my tires once on my truck and the reset process wouldn't work but the sensors still read pressures correctly, so I just remembered the front was the back and vice versa. The next time I rotated tires I tried to reset them and it worked but then two of the sensors stopped reading anything the next day. Ended up bringing the truck in to get aligned and sensors fixed, which resulted in the purchase or my camaro, but thats another story. What are the odds they would have one sitting in the show room with every single option I wanted, the right color and stripes. All he had to do was start the engine. My wife and I were hook, line, and sinker.

Tire pressure monitors are required by the government on all vehicles since late 2007.

I believe that requirement came out of the Firestone recalls, which caused a number of deaths due to rollovers. All we need now is a "rollover monitoring system" that lets people know the car is about to tip over. The DIC could say "GAME OVER" if you are already in the process of rolling over.

I would actually buy a vehicle that said "GAME OVER" when bad things happen.
