Chevy Cruze: Reset the Tire Pressure Management System (TPMS)

If you rotate or replace the tires on the Chevy Cruze, you may need to reset the Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS). GM didn’t make it very easy to reset the system, but it can be done without having to go to the dealership.

  1. Obtain a Tire Pressure Monitor Sensor Activation Tools like this one.
  2. Set the parking brake.
  3. Turn the ignition to the “On/Run” position to enable the electronics. Do not start the engine.
  4. Press the Remote Keyless Entry Transmitter’s “Lock” and “Unlock” buttons simultaneously for about five seconds. The horn will beep twice to signal the receiver is in relearn mode. “TIRE LEARNING ACTIVE” will be displayed on the display on the instrument panel.
  5. Place the relearn tool against the front driver’s side tire sidewall, about 2 inches away from the valve stem. Then press the button of the reset tool to activate the TPMS sensor. A horn beep confirms the sensor ID code has been matched to the tire and wheel position.
  6. Perform the step 5 procedure on the passenger-side front tire.
  7. Perform the step 5 procedure on the passenger-side rear tire.
  8. Perform the step 5 procedure on the driver side rear tire. The horn should sound twice to indicate the sensor ID code has been matched to the driver side rear tire and the TPMS sensor matching process is completed. The “TIRE LEARNING ACTIVE” message will be displayed on the display on the instrument panel.
  9. Turn the ignition to “Off“.
  10. Set all four tires to the recommended air pressure levels as shown on the side of the tires.
