2010 Camaro LS now sits on 20's but trouble with TPMS sensors

So I just changed my rims and tires from the ugly Heritage rims to the Oem 20's man what a difference (pics are included). I tried to get the car to learn the tires and for some reason when ever I got to the passenger rear wheel I could it not beep anymore. I think I know how to do it but for some reason I am having problems!!!!! Do I need to take it to the dealership and figure it out what should I do?

Are the sensors OEM (GM) sensors in the new tires?

Did you follow the instructions in the owners' manual? You set up the learn function in the DIC and then you go around the car starting with the driver's front wheel, letting air out of each tire until the horn sounds. Then procede around the car (clockwise) until you've done all 4. The horn should sound after each wheel is set.

Make sure you are near an air hose when you do this because you'll need to refill your tires.

Also, make sure you are no where near you old wheels because your car might "see" the old sensors.

If that fails, take it to the dealer. They have a hand held device that will set the sensors for you.

When I got new 20's the tire shop had a special TPMS tool to acitvate my new sensors. I think you might need to get them all activated.

The car has it's own learn function as I said above (requiring you to let air out of the tires in sequence), or you can use the TPMS tool. Almost any tire shop or any dealer will have that tool.
