ITs behind the glove box for the front passenger. You have to take out the glove box. Do you want the procedures?
Ok, what software are you running on that connection?
Sorry for the delay....

Okay, part of this replacement of the RDC requires disconnecting the battery. How is this done?
Does this car have one or two RDC (TPMS) modules? If two, then location of the 2nd module?
It has one module and two antennas in the front and rear bumpers. Those should be ok.
As for the battery, just unhook the negative terminal which is closest to the rear tail light.
Isn't there an on-off battery "switch" located above the fuse panel in the rear hatch area? If so, can I simply hit that switch while I do the part replacement? Any idea where I can find a used RDC module?
No switch or I would have told you. Unhook the battery. As for the Used module, try
Its not a total battery disconnect. You must unhook the battery or the air bags will remain live. This is the only way. The battery is in the trunk under a cover passengers side.
The RDC needs to be coded and the sensors in your wheels taught to it. I don't know what software you have nor how to do it with your software.
No, it will warn you of that on the dash and show all tires as being low.
I've heard that too. 9 or 3 o'clock is the shortest to either antenna. As for as batteries, the scan tool can call up the remaining battery life but what I see is after about 5 years, they are done or very weak. New ones are available in the link below:
Use the 2 amp charger. The 13.5 constant wont fully charge the battery.
