I just replaced a tire pressure sensor this morning. But I don't have any reading. What do I need to do to program/learn the new sensor?

The main item you need to re-calibrate (actually
it's "program the sensors" in the service manual lingo) the sensors is a
magnet to engage sensors during the training sequence. The GM tool is J
41760, but a decent powered magnet would suffice.
Make sure vehicle has been stationary for at least 2 minutes.
1 - Ignition on
2 - Press RESET to clear all IPC messages from DIC
3 - Press and release OPTIONS, scroll til IPC is blank
4 - Press and hold DIC RESET for 3 seconds
5 - Press OPTIONS again until TIRE TRAINING message is displayed
6 - Press RESET until IPC LEARN L FRONT TIRE to begin programming
7 - Install J 41760 over left front valve stem (I would try a
hefty magnet now)
8 - The horn will sound indicating LF sensor is programmed
Notice - if after 15 seconds the horn doesn't sound, remove and reinstall
tool on stem. This may have to be done up to three times in some instances.
9 - IPC will direct you to LEARN R FRONT TIRE, R REAR TIRE, then L REAR
TIRE.

Programming Cancellation:
1. Programming mode will cancel if any of the following conditions are met:
- program mode exited through DIC
- ignition turned off
- all four sensors programmed
- TPM program mode for 2 minutes with no sensors learned
2. If cancelled with less than 4 codes stored, the receiver will only accept
the codes programmed up to that point.

There you have it, good luck.

Magnet i used\

I used a regular large mechanic's magnet on a stick. After setting computer to learn take the magnet on a stick and run it around the valve stem next to the rim until the horn blows and move from the LF to RF to RR to LR.

Good luck

Thanks for the replies...........now off to find a magnet
Hey Dale:w,

I used the magnet off of an old 6x9 speaker, worked fine.
