If you rotate tires the left front tire becomes the left rear etc. Each transmiter would have to be reset to show it's new location. In your case the wheel and tire were put back in their original location. Thanks for your reply anyway, we are all here to try to help one another. :thumbsmswaim said:I'm no expert however I believe they reset themselves once every few minutes. I know I had a tire repaired due to an encounter with a sheet metal screw. Once the tire was remounted and inflated it continued to show as a low tire until I drove it for a mile or two. After a short time it reset and all is good.

It's basically just a magnet that is placed over the valve stem, you then hold down the lock and unlock buttons on your FOB and the horn will honk
that will begin the learning mode of the monitors inside each tire.
begin LF and continuing clockwise, each tire will honk, and a double honk at the end will signify success.
I have the factory print out with detailed instructions on this
and the tool part # someplace at home, I'll try to locate :thumbs
Yes, it works on the XLR as well .......save your $50!XLR4me said:Thanks I'll try that...I have the tool part number...Kent-Moore part number J41760 if you want to buy one go to http://www.spxkentmoore.com. It cost over $50.00.
The tool is actually a magnet. I have a 2002 Vette and went to radio shack and bought a magnet to put over the valve stems..It worked on the vette but I'll keep you posted on the XLR.
standby- At first, I thought mine automatically reset (like my previous car) ... But it would cause an intermittent dash warning. On occasion, it would occur on startup ... But most times, it would happen about 30 mins into my commute.
If you call a tire store(discount tire co. or americas tire co) you will find that most can or soon can reset the tpms system with a special reset tool,as all vehicles will have tpms by 2008 all tire stores will need to have these, by the way ,we do it for free as well as free flat tire repairs and the resetting only takes a few mins.
Actually mine set automatically on my V. When I put the 20's on with the old TPM's they reset themsleves after driving 5 miles. I'm not going to question it, I just like it.
