    Default Tires rotated

    I just had my tires rotated and noticed the the TPM system is wrong. The front tire read out in the car is displaying the pressure for the rear tires and the rear tire read out is displaying the pressure for the front tires. Will the system automatically update itself after some time or do I need to reset the system somehow manually?

    Thanks for any help.

    Interesting. How far have you driven since the "rotation"? They should "reset" on their own!

    On vehicles equipped with the premium TPM system, the Wireless Control Module (WCM), commonly referred to as the Sentry Key Remote Entry Module (SKREEM), uses transponders (trigger modules) located in three of the four wheel wells on the vehicle to provide it with the location of the tire pressure sensors on the vehicle. Like the base system, the WCM receives RF signals from all four rotating wheel speed sensors. When the WCM needs to know which sensor is located at a particular location on the vehicle, it directs the transponder at that location to send out a low frequency signal to excite the nearby sensor. The WCM then receives that excited signal and knows where that sensor is located. This auto-locating process only happens in the first 10 minutes of any WCM cycle while traveling at speeds above 20 mph (32 km/h) (The auto-locating process will start again only if the vehicle has been shut off for approximately 20 minutes or longer). Once the WCM has performed this to the three locations that have transponders, it uses the process-of-elimination theory to figure out the location of the fourth sensor ID.

    Thanks to all who responded...after some driving time today the TPM system reset itself and all is back to normal.
