M o d e r n T i r e D e a l e r . c o m the air pressure of all tires and adjust to the specified cold pressure listed on the vehicle certification label (found on the driver's door or door pillar). Drive the vehicle at 20 mph (32 km/h) for at least 2 minutes. Ensure that the TPMS indica- tors go out. e TPMS sensor activation procedure may also be used to trigger a pressure sensor broadcast. See "Tire pressure sensor activation." Ensure that the TPMS indicators go out. TIRE PRESSURE SENSOR TRAINING NOTE: In the following procedure, TPMS activation tool (204-363) must be used. NOTE: e tire pressure sensor training procedure must be done on a single vehicle, in an area without radio frequency (RF) noise and at least 3 . (1 m) away from any other vehicle equipped with a TPMS. RF noise is generated by electrical motor and appliance operation, cellular telephones and remote transmitters, power inverters and portable entertainment equipment. NOTE: A new tire pressure sensor is shipped in an OFF mode (or battery saver mode), and must be turned ON before it can be trained. To turn the sensor on, inflate the tire to the recommended inflation pressure and wait at least 2 minutes, then continue with the sensor training procedure. 1) Turn the ignition switch to the OFF position, then press and release the brake pedal. 2) Turn the ignition switch from the OFF position to the RUN position 3 times, ending in the RUN position. Do not wait more than one minute between each key cycle. 3) Press and release the brake pedal. 4) Turn the ignition switch to the OFF position. NOTE: e horn will sound once and the tire pressure warning light will flash if the train mode has been entered successfully (if equipped, the message center displays "TRAIN LF TIRE"). 5) Turn the ignition switch from the OFF position to the RUN position 3 times, ending in the RUN position. Do not wait more than one minute between each key cycle. NOTE: It may take up to 6 seconds to activate a tire pressure sensor. During this time, the activation tool must remain against the sidewall of the tire. NOTE: If a sensor does not respond to the activation tool, attempt to activate the same sensor using the activation tool. If the sensor still does not respond, move the vehicle to rotate the wheels at least 1/4 of a turn and attempt to activate the same sensor again. NOTE: If the SJB does not recognize any one of the 4 tire pressure sensors during the 2 minute time limit for each sensor response, the horn will sound twice and the message center (if equipped) will display "TIRE NOT TRAINED REPEAT." e training procedure must be repeated from the beginning. 6) Place TPMS activation tool (204-363) on the le front tire sidewall at the valve stem. Press the test button on the activa- tion tool. e horn will sound briefly to indicate that the tire pressure sensor has been recognized by the SJB. NOTE: Do not wait more than 2 minutes between training each sensor. If the wait time is more than 2 minutes the SJB will stop and the training procedure must be repeated from the beginning. 7) Within 2 minutes after the horn sounds, place the activation tool on the right front tire sidewall at the valve stem. Repeat the procedure for the right rear and le rear tires, in that order. 8) When the tire training procedure is complete, the message center (if equipped) will display "TIRE TRAINING COM- PLETE." For vehicles not equipped with a message center, successful completion of the training procedure will be verified by turning the ignition switch to the OFF position without the horn sounding. If the horn sounds twice when ignition is turned off, the training procedure was not successful. TIRE PRESSURE SENSOR ACTIVATION 1) Turn the ignition switch to the ON position. 2) Place the activation tool on the le front tire sidewall at the valve stem. NOTE: A green light will flash and a beep will sound on the activation tool for each successful TPMS sensor response. 3) Press the test button on the activation tool to activate the TPMS sensor. For best results, activate each sensor twice. NOTE: If, aer adjusting tire pressures and activating sensors, the tire pressure warning light is still illuminated, there is a malfunction in the TPMS system. See the appropriate manufacturer service information. 4) Perform the activation procedure for each remaining tire. bartecusa.com [ 8 5 5 ] 8 7 7 - 9 7 3 2 Own the Wheel Well Industry's Best [866]407-TPMS Bartec Technical Support W i - F i U p d a t i n g O n l y o n t h e T e c h 4 0 0 P r o !
