Just talked to a former GM dealer tech... Now has his own service

station.... about GM front hub speed sensors & tire

pressure monitoring systems.....

If you change GM tire diameters over a period of a day.....

the speed sensor system thinks one of your tires is loosing
pressure

based upon the history of tire revolutions counted 'against
something'.

Reset guess..... Disconnect the battery ????

Once reset, the tire revolution count accommodates the new tire
diameter.

What do you mean, "you changed wheels on it"? Did you put
brand new rims on the vehicle, or did you just rotate the tires?
Each rim has a radio transmitter built into the valve stem assembly.
It transmits it's position to the vehicle's computer. If you move
any of them to a different position, you need to relearn the positions
of the sensors. There is a special tool, looks like a thick horseshoe
shaped magnet, you turn the ignition on, press the lock and unlock
buttons on your key fob and hold until the horn blows, then you
start at the drivers side front wheel and hold the magnet around the
valve stem until the horn blows. Working your way clockwise
around the vehicle, you do the same thing to the other wheels. The
horn will blow twice when you are complete.

As you probably don't have the special tool, expect to go into the
dealership to have this reset procedure performed.

As long as I live I will never own a truck that needs it's valve stems
degaused.
Why would anyone want to real-time monitor tire pressure?

Sounds like he put new rims on without the valve stem sensors. OOPs.

Nice to know if you ran over something on the highway and are losing
air. Ever seen what a tire does when it comes apart from being run with
low air pressure? NOT pretty.

I'm not sure about this, but I thought that this is one of those
"safety" things that will eventually be legislated on all vehicles.
From what I see of the average customer that is coming in
so the service area of our dealership....the more bells and
warning whistles...the better.

I believe it's turning these expensive vehicles into 7 year vehicles, after
that they are trash and not worth fixing, at least in Canadian climate.
I've studied much of the technology in all these components and it's all
akward and forced.
I'd be horrified to be surrounded by all this lame technology.
