Need Help With 2012 Tire Pressure Sensors

I am trying to recalibrate my tire pressure sensors but the links I found on here don't work for the 2012. I get the car to beep twice to start but after I let out air nothing happens. Does this mean I just have to have the dealership do it since i don't have the tool that is needed?

You can purchase the tire pressure gauges in any auto parts store, or a department store like Walmart or Target.

Make sure your HandBrake is on. Start the test, Once the car beeps twice , add or remove air pressure to the front left tire( I usually count to 10) now wait for the sensor to update, this might take up to a minute. When it beeps, repeat step on the front right tire, then repeat for the right rear, then left rear, when test is completed, you'll get a double beep again.

Yes. For model years 2012 and newer, you need the reset tool, or they can't be recalibrated. Previous model years can be recalibrated without the tool, but 2012+ cannot. You'll need to either head to a shop, or buy the tool online for about $80.

Go into any discount tire or America's tire and they will do it for free.

I can do it on my dad's 2012.

Press the set/clr button on the DIC until it says you are about to clear and learn the sensors, are you sure you want to do this. Press yes. It will honk to indicate it is learning, and the left front turn signal will be lit up solid.

The trick is to let the air out of the drivers left tire for about 10 seconds. Wait about 30 seconds and it should beep and go to the next tire. That seems to work for me. It is slower than the 2010 to get it to learn but it works with his all seasons and the original 2012. Both have OEM sensors.

It's so much easier with the reset tool.
