2008 Colorado Sign In

After buying a new set of tires for my Colorado (Vortec 3700 with 53844 miles) I started getting the "Serv TPMS" warning. I read in the owner's manual how to perform the sensor matching procedure and followed instructions meticulously. I have attempted to do this 7 times in two separate sessions but was never successful. I never got a horn chirp after the first tire (driver side front). Could there be other issues with the TPMS ?

Certainly.......... they could have damaged one of the sensors in the process of changing the tires. It's very easy to do. You will need a shop with a TPMS scan tool to see if all the sensors are communicating.

Thanks for the reply. I had decided that I would have to take the truck in--but the next time I started it the "serve TPMS" message was gone.
It is one of those situations where one says, "I don't know what I did, but it's fixed" (Ignorance is bliss)
Thanks again.

I may be wrong but when you get a warning of low tire pressure or NO tire pressure I thought most reset themselves in some miles if not damaged of course.

Surprising that instructions in owner's manual failed. Jeez - carry a tire gauge anyway - cheap enough if the system messed up,
