Cant get the TPMS to relearn

I cant seem to get the TPMS on my swap out rims/tires to work. They are take-offs from another SS with stock tires.

I tried the process in the manual to relearn, it starts the relearn process but wont detect tire pressure changes (up or down) to get them learned.

Any ideas? Can I visually determine if these take-offs still have the TPMS equipment on them?

pretty sure the only way to visually tell if the wheels have the sensors is taking the tire off and looking at the inside of the rim

Real easy to do, hit the switch to read tire sensors reset, the horn will blow i think is 2 times, start from the left front wheel and let the are out until the horn blow once then go to the right front and repeat, then the right rear wheel, then the left rear wheel. The horn will blow every time you let the air out at a certain point each time it does go to the next wheel. After you do all four wheels fill the tire back up to about 32 to 36 lbs of pressure.

Problem is, it is not blowing the horn while I let air out. I tried a few times. Even tried putting air back in to see if it would go.

When I did mine, it seemed like it took too long (about 20 - 30 seconds while bleeding air out) for the computer to sense the pressure change and honk the horn. I probably dropped the pressure by 6 - 8 psi. At first I thought it wasn't working, but it did finally work okay, I just needed to be more patient.
