2.Turn ignition off and wait about 5 minutes for TPMS sensors to enter sleep mode.Connect scan tool to vehicle data link connector.

3.Turn ignition on.

4.Verify scan tool communication with vehicle and TPMS control unit.

5.Select Sensor ID Learning from the mode menu on the scan tool.

6.Follow scan tool screen prompts to turn on sensor initializer tool. Verify that the power switch is in the low position.

7.Hold sensor initializer tool near any wheel; memorize sensor ID by following screen prompts on scan tool.

8.Repeat step 6 for each wheel until all 4 sensor IDs are memorized. The low tire pressure indicator will blink when all 4 IDs are memorized.

9.Turn ignition off.

10.Disconnect scan tool from vehicle.

3.Select “Function Test”, then “Sensor Position check” on the HDS tool.

4.Follow the prompts on the HDS to activate the tire pressure sensors using the TPMS sensor initializer tool. Start with the left-front (LF) wheel. Initialize the wheels in the following order: left front (LF), left rear (LR), right rear (RR), right front (RF).

5.Check the HDS screen, and note the active sensor reception order of tire pressure sensors 1, 2, 3, and 4.
