Service tire pressure monitor system?

I bought a complete set of brand new ,already mounted factory Z28 rims and tires with the factory TPMS sensors already in them from one of the forum vendors on here. I mounted them on my car today because I'm going to Pocono this Sunday and I'm getting a message in the dash to "service tire pressure monitoring system" along with the low tire warning idiot light too. I followed the reset instructions that flashed on but it hasn't corrected it. How do I rectify this?

make sure you get an audible "honk"from the horn confirming each sensor position and a "honk honk" at the last wheel. You must use a reset tool to perform this procedure.

Black plate (69,1)Chevrolet Camaro Owner Manual (GMNA-Localizing-U.S./Canada/Mexico-7695163) - 2015 - crc - 9/4/14Vehicle Care 10-69could prevent the TPMS fromfunctioning properly. SeeBuyingNew Tires on page 10-73..Operating electronic devices orbeing near facilities using radiowave frequencies similar to theTPMS could cause the TPMSsensors to malfunction.If the TPMS is not functioningproperly, it cannot detect or signal alow tire condition. See your dealerfor service if the TPMS malfunctionlight and DIC message come onand stay on.TPMS Sensor MatchingProcessEach TPMS sensor has a uniqueidentification code. The identificationcode needs to be matched to a newtire/wheel position after rotating thetires or replacing one or more of theTPMS sensors. The TPMS sensormatching process should also beperformed after replacing a sparetire with a road tire containing theTPMS sensor. The malfunction lightand the DIC message should go offat the next ignition cycle. Thesensors are matched to the tire/wheel positions, using a TPMSrelearn tool, in the following order:driver side front tire, passenger sidefront tire, passenger side rear tire,and driver side rear. See yourdealer for service or to purchase arelearn tool. A TPMS relearn toolcan also be purchased. See TirePressure Monitor Sensor ActivationTool atwww.gmtoolsandequipment.com orcall 1-800-GM TOOLS(1-800-468-6657).There are two minutes to match thefirst tire/wheel position, andfive minutes overall to match all fourtire/wheel positions. If it takeslonger, the matching process stopsand must be restarted.The TPMS sensor matchingprocess is:1. Set the parking brake.2. Turn the ignition to ON/RUN withthe engine off.3. Use the MENU button to selectthe Vehicle Information menu inthe Driver InformationCenter (DIC).4. Use the thumbwheel to scroll tothe Tire Pressure Menu itemscreen.5. Press the SET/CLR button tobegin the sensor matchingprocess.A message requestingacceptance of the processshould display.6. Press the SET/CLR button againto confirm the selection.The horn sounds twice to signalthe receiver is in relearn modeand the TIRE LEARNINGACTIVE message displays onthe DIC screen.7. Start with the driver sidefront tire.8. Place the relearn tool againstthe tire sidewall, near the valvestem. Then press the button toactivate the TPMS sensor.

Did you just try to reset the light, or did you RELEARN the new sensors to your car?

I own this tool and use it to relearn my tire sensors every time I swap between my summer and winter rims, or do a tire rotation.

The monitor in each wheel is pared to the hub it's mounted on. Whenever you put a different wheel on a hub, the wheel has to be pared (relearned) to the hub. You may be able to get a tire dealer do this for you if you can't dig up a tool in time. Or just don't pay attention to the warning lights, messages, and monitor your tire pressures manually.

I think you got them from us, funny we have the learn tool and had N.P. on other Z/28, let me know if you still have a problem when you get the new wheels learned to the car.

Thanks for all the advice you guys are always a great source for Z28 info. I don't have a GM dealer close by so it looks like I will have to manually monitor my pressures at Pocono tomorrow. Im gonna purchase the relearn tool from Amazon as I constantly switch wheels and tires between track days ( Trofeos will sandblast all the paint off my car if street driven lol). I really love the fact that I can monitor my rising air pressures on track. Once they rise from 28lbs cold to 34lbs I feel really confident that there's enough heat in the tires to start pushing the beast on track. I will just be a little more cautious tomorrow.

Do like many of us and put Xpel film on, ay 8.5 mils thick, it sheds pebbles up to 125 mph. After 14 months of ownership; there is damage for road debris. I had the front clip done, more importantly the sides halfway up the door on each side, basically the areas the rocks will hit; so mirrors,along the windshield leading edge, and the spoiler.I made a deal to let the installer use my car in 4 car shows and got a $3000 package for $1700.

Alternately Xpel sells a track film (Tracwrap) you apply when on the track and it accomplishes the same purpose.Much better than painters tape, which while having 40 gram/in strength-which is good for walls, is too much for cars and can prove challenging to remove-when I used it in the past it was only over freshly waxed areas.

Xpel Tracwrap
