Hi, what does the dash read? does it read any pressures? or just dashes? Also did you reuse the tire sensors in the new wheels? Is the service tire monitor light on? Let me know and i will try to help you out. Thanks Eric

yes I reused the TPMS from the old wheels the car only has 1000 miles on it. The light is on in my dash and the system say TPMS needs service. Also says tire pressure is low.

Okay, Do you have the owners manual? Inside it should describe the system and tell you how to do a reset by adjusting the air pressure in each tire while the system is in "learn mode" If you dont have the info, basically what you do is, scroll through the menu on the dash using the buttons until you "relearn tire position" then usually you press the check mark button. The horn should chirp 2 times to let you know learn mode is active. Then starting at LF wheel, increase or decrease tire pressure by 10 lbs. You should hear one horn chirp. Then move to RF,RR,LR in that order and repeat. When the last tire is done the horn should chirp 2 more times to tell you they all learned. Next turn off the key, and adjust all tires to the correct pressure. Start and drive car so the sensors update and it should be ok after that. I dont have 2011 info and it may have changed, but it should be in the owners manual. Hope this helps. Please click on accept. Let me know if i can help you further. Thanks, Eric

SO you have to increase the tire pressure by 10 pounds for this to work? I have tried it a few times can only get the driver front tire to chirp will try again with the 10 pounds difference and let you know.  YOu only get five minutes before the system resets.....
