Hi, I am Mike, welcome. I'm reviewing your question.

Expert:  Mike S. replied 3 months ago.

Did you go through the process of relearning all the tire pressure sensors, cause if you didn't the computer doesn't know where that one belongs.

Customer: replied 3 months ago.
i don't know i think they did
Expert:  Mike S. replied 3 months ago.

I will look it up if need be but I know on my 2009 Silverado, you press the trip meter until the tipm comes up then go around and let the air out of each tire one at a time until the horn beeps.

Expert:  Mike S. replied 3 months ago.

Do you want the procedure? You should be able to do it yourself.

Customer: replied 3 months ago.
OK

i'm waiting
Expert:  Mike S. replied 3 months ago.

I think first is page 3-70 but I think you already knew this. I am now looking for the actual procedure once you get to it.

Tire Pressure Display

This feature will allow the individual tire pressure

readings to be displayed when using the INFO button to

scroll through the DIC displays. Even with this feature

programmed to be turned off, a low or high tire pressure

condition will still cause the CHECK TIRE PRESSURE

message to be displayed on the DIC. See DIC Warnings

and Messages on page 3-62 for more information.

Programmable Modes

Mode 1: ON

Mode 2: OFF

Before your vehicle was shipped from the factory, it was

programmed to Mode 1. The mode to which the

vehicle was programmed may have been changed since

it left the factory. To determine the mode to which the

vehicle is programmed or to program the vehicle to

a different mode, do the following:

1. Enter FEATURE PROGRAMMING following the

instructions listed previously.

2. Press the down arrow on the INFO button until

TIRE PRESSURE DISPLAY appears on the DIC

display.

Expert:  Mike S. replied 3 months ago.

3. To turn on the feature, press the ON/OFF button

until ON appears on the DIC display. To turn it off,

press the ON/OFF button until OFF appears on

the display.

The mode you selected is now set. You can either exit

the programming mode by following the instructions

later in this section or program the next feature available

on your vehicle.

Expert:  Mike S. replied 3 months ago.

Exiting Feature Programming

To exit FEATURE PROGRAMMING, press the INFO

RESET or INFO button.

Expert:  Mike S. replied 3 months ago.

It doesn't actually say how, maybe the instructions are displayed once you get into that menu on the dic, try it.

Expert:  Mike S. replied 3 months ago.

I found this in the repair manual but they are using a TPM Sensor Activation Tool

Expert:  Mike S. replied 3 months ago.

I see someone made a note he used a horse magnet and it worked in place of that TPM Sensor Activation Tool

Expert:  Mike S. replied 3 months ago.

horseshoe magnet that is.

If you don't, the deposit you made will just sit there and I won't get my share of it.
