TPMS issue

so I recently bought a 2008 limited. noticed while scrolling through the menus that the passenger rear did not show a tire pressure while the other three did, so I figure one of the TPMS is bad and I will fix it when I get new tires. well over the course of the first week the pressure in the drivers front dropped from 42 down to 28... great I got a leak in my tire. so I go to put some air in it today and next thing I know the system shows my passenger front at 51 psi. So my tires are in all the wrong spots according to the system.

Driver front in the system, is actually passenger rear tire
Passenger front is actually driver front tire
passenger rear is actually passenger front tire
Driver rear is actually driver rear, but doesnt show anything

everything I have read says these should auto locate. Or am I missing something? Is there a way to do a hard reset and calibrate these things?

On a wim, I would say try disconnecting your positive battery terminal for a couple of minutes and then reconnect it and see if that initiates an auto locate.

Also, please don't post the same thread in multiple sub-forums.

hey heffercow, did you get this figured out?

I had new tires installed and a new sensor installed. i now have problems with the new sensor i think. I'll try your method to determine which tire it actually is before going back to the installer.

On another note, has anyone tried an Autel TPMS tool to re-write sensor data to the ECU?

have not figured it out. When I added the new tires and wheels the previous owner had pulled the TPMS out... So i have to buy new ones and just havent bit the bullet on any yet. so much stuff out there that some people say worked and some people say didnt.

Apparently they do not work on factory sensors.

Well I had the replacement sensors installed and they read the correct pressure bur continually flash low. I assume they must have done something wrong when reprogramming.

When you say reads low, does it show double dashes for the pressure value and the yellow tire exclamation point light comes on?

meaning the tool will not read factory sensor values/config or will not write values to the ECU?

No, the sensors are reading the correct pressure. I set the tires all to 45 psi and the sensors are showing them at 45 psi. The display is telling me that each tire has low pressure as in left front tire low pressure etc. I spoke to the shop and he said they would have set it to the door sticker, which is 35 psi. He thinks that the computer is in a glitch because the actual pressure is too high.
