Anyone in or near West Valley able to program wheel sensors?

Anyone on the site have the sensor programming tool for the sensors on the late model vettes? When my wheels show up in 3-4 more weeks with new sensors I am going to need to have them programed. Anyone here do this? Or know what it would cost to have the dealer or even a place like Firestone do it?

Whoever you get to mount them should be able to do it. I just put new rear tires on a couple weeks ago and one sensor wasn't reading when I left Discount. I turned around and took it back and they programmed it w/o any problem.

There's no DIC process for doing that? I know on my Tahoe there's a means to put the readers in learn mode (ignition on, turn on/off parking lamps 4 times within 4 seconds... horn honk confirmation) and change the pressures in each tire in a sequence.. horn honk, next... rinse & repeat. Nothing like that for Vette's? Where's the standard, GM... c'mon! Is it the same learn mode for yours as a 2005 Vette? I've got the GM SI software that states the following: TPM Learn Mode Description The tire pressure monitor (TPM) system uses the remote control door lock receiver (RCDLR), body control module (BCM), keyless entry transmitter, 4 radio frequency transmitting pressure sensors, and the serial data circuit to perform the TPM learn mode functions. The sensor learn procedure must be performed after each tire rotation, RCDLR replacement, or tire pressure sensor replacement. Once the TPM learn mode has been enabled, each of the sensors unique identification (ID) codes can be learned into the RCDLR's memory. When the RCDLR receives a sensor's transmission, it sends a serial data message to the BCM to sound a horn chirp. This verifies the sensor has transmitted its ID code and the RCDLR has received and learned it. The RCDLR must learn the sensor IDs in the proper order to determine sensor location. The first learned ID is assigned to the left front location, the second to right front, the third to right rear and the fourth to left rear. TPM Learn Mode Cancellation The RCDLR will cancel the TPM learn mode if more than 2 minutes have passed and no sensors have been learned, or if more than 5 minutes have passed for the entire procedure. If the learn mode is cancelled before any sensor IDs are learned, the RCDLR will remember all previously stored IDs and their locations. As soon as the RCDLR learns the first sensor ID, all previously stored IDs are erased from the RCDLR's memory. Sensor Learn Procedure Important: Before proceeding with the procedure below, ensure that no other learn procedure is being performed simultaneously. 1. Select the ACC position on the ignition switch. 2. Simultaneously press the keyless entry transmitter lock and unlock buttons until a horn chirp sounds, indicating the TPM learn mode has been enabled. 3. Starting with the left front tire, hold the antenna of the J-46079 TPM tool against the tire sidewall close to the wheel rim at the valve stem location then press and release the Activate button and wait for a horn chirp. 4. After the horn chirp sounds, proceed as in step 3 for the next 3 sensors in the following order: 1. Right front 2. Right rear 3. Left rear 5. After the left rear sensor is learned, a double horn chirp will sound indicating all sensor IDs have been learned. 6. Select the OFF position on the ignition switch to exit the TPM learn mode. ...but i guess it still requires the TPM tool... that sucks!

DIC process for resetting sensors C5 = yes C6 = no With the C6 you also can't pull your own codes. You need a seperate reader.

Yup not on the C6 unfortunately. The wheel manufacture (360 Forged) is sending my wheels and tires already mounted and balanced ready to go on the car. so the day they arrived I will toss them on and head over to who ever or where ever to have the new sensors programmed that will be coming with my new wheels.

Mine need reprogramming too.

You can do your own. See Chad's directions above.

You just need a strong magnet. I found one at ACE Hardware for a few bucks. Let me know if you can't find one and I'll bring mine Sunday.

COOL...glad to know someone has one before I sprung for a purchase. I was going to buy one to perform the reprogramming when using my track wheels/tires on track day events.

You got it. Print the directions so we remember how to do it. I'll have too much other crap to remember.

Ok thanks!

Well hell, maybe we'll do mine at the same time. When I went to Discount Tire last time, they mounted the front tires on the wrong rims so mine are reversed right now. :lol

I just run without them in my track wheels...

Hey Drew,

For drag racing, I don't need to do anything as it doesn't intefere with turning traction control off.

To road race, if the system doesn't detect the TPMS signals it won't allow you to go into Competition Mode (at least thats how MY 06 works).
