service TPMS

While driving to work this a.m. my dash said that I needed to service the TPMS system. My car is a 2013 with 6000 mi. The screen where it shows the actual tire pressure shows a dash for the left rear tire. I checked the tire and it was fine. I looked up the problem here and got a headache with all the back and forth mess. : you can, you cant, you need a tool, you don't need a tool, my '12 does, my '12 does not....ad naseum. Can I reset the sensor/system myself without a tool or not ? (remember it is a 2013.) If I have to go to the dealership, is it covered under the warranty? how long does it take the dealership?/should I have to leave it there? Does any body know for sure?

No, you need a tool for a 2013...it takes no time to do if you have the tool, under 5 minutes...they should reset it for free....

You do need a tool for a 13, but you may also have a bad sensor if it just suddenly quit reading pressure.

I thought the manual setting could still be done on all the Camaro years. where you put it in reset mode on your IP cluster and let the air out at each wheel starting at the front left...right front and working clock wise around the vechicle. that's how I did my 2010

Well you thought wrong. On a 2010 you can, but not a '13.
