1). Apply parking brake. Turn ignition to ON position (engine off)

2). Press and hold unlock and lock buttons on the keyless entry transmitter until horn sounds, and then LF turn signal will become illuminated.

3). Starting with LF tire, increase/decrease tire pressure until horn sounds.

4). After horn sounds proceed as in step 3 for the next 3 sensors in the following order: RF RR LR After completing LR tire horn will sound twice.

5). Turn ignition to OFF position to exit vehicle learn mode. Adjust all tires to pressure listed on the placard.



Another thing about TPMS relearn, for either method, if you don’t have the EL-50448 tool, get one!! It sure makes the entire process easier and way faster. You do not have to let air out of the tires, just hold this tool against tire wall next to TPMS and it recognizes it in 2-5 seconds, horn chirps, move to the next. This tool can be found on for less than $15.
