TS508 99 % VEHICLE COVERAGE PROGRAMMABLE UNIVERSAL TPMS • A spare tire is installed. • A tire without a tire pressure sensor is used. • Wheels other than the manufacturer factory wheels are used. TIRE PRESSURE MONITOR WARNING INDICATORS If any road tire pressure has exceeded the low or high pressure threshold, the warning light will be on continuously. If equipped with the premium system, the electronic vehicle information center (EVIC) will display a message and a single chime will sound. e text message will indicate which tire is low, and the display will show all current tire pressures (the pressure value for the low tire will be flashing). If warning indicators are on continuously due to low pressure in one or more tires, adjust tire inflation to specification. e light will remain on until tire pressure is properly set. Aer adjusting air pressure in a tire, allow approximately 2 minutes for the warning indicators to turn off. If a system fault is detected, a chime will sound, and the TPMS indicator (telltale) lamp will flash for 75 seconds, and then remain on solid. For vehicles with the premium TPMS, a "CHECK TPM SYSTEM" message will appear in the EVIC, followed by a graphic display. See the appropriate manufacturer service information. TPMS RESET PROCEDURES NOTE: If a tire pressure sensor has been replaced, the tire pressure sensors must be retrained. If warning indicators are on continu- ously due to low pressure in one or more tires, adjust tire inflation to specification. e light will remain on until tire pressure is properly set. Aer adjusting air pressure in a tire, allow approximately 2 minutes for the warning indicators to turn off. TIRE PRESSURE SENSOR RETRAINING Using a RF signal, each sensor transmits tire pressure data approximately once every minute. Each sensor's (transmitter) broadcast is uniquely coded so that the SKREEM can monitor the state of each of the sensors on the 4 rotating road wheels. e SKREEM automatically learns and stores the sensor's ID while driving aer a sensor has been replaced. ere is no formal retraining proce- dures necessary. Drive the vehicle for a minimum of 10 minutes while maintaining a continuous speed above 15 mph (24 km/h). During this time, the system will learn the new sensor ID code and will clear any DTCs automatically. If a sensor cannot be trained, see appropriate manufacturer service information. A new sensor ID also can be programmed directly into the WIN or TPMS module by using a RKE- TPMS analyzer in conjunction with a scan tool. Once the new sensor ID has been programmed, the vehicle will need to be driven above 15 mph until the fault is no longer active (lamp extinguishes) and the display is updated (for up to 20 minutes). NOTE: Using a TPMS-RKE analyzer can take up to a minute to force a transmission from a sensor. DEMOUNTING/MOUNTING PROCEDURES CAUTION: e tire should be demounted from the wheel using the tire changer manufacturer's instructions. Use the fol- lowing information to avoid damage during the demounting/mounting procedures. CAUTION: e TPMS has been opti- mized for the original equipment tires and wheels. TPMS pressures have been established for the tire size equipped on your vehicle. Undesirable operation or Figure 2: Identifying tire pressure sensor components (2009-10 — 2 of 2).
