Dealer says if we rotate our wheels the tire pressure monitors will not work at all. Is there a way to reprogram them; or will they read only in the wrong wheel position? Dealer service says it has to be done with their equiptment. Thank You Linda Davidson

Answers from the Automotive Experts

Amanda J. Pierce, MBA Linda, Your info states (2011 Buick Century) I am not certain they made that model in 2011. However, there are some models if you review your owners manual that outlines the procedure to reset your TPMS, this may be with your on-board diagnostics or through a series of steps outlined. Hope this Helps! A. J. Valle

Denise Koeth, Managing Editor at Tire Review Magazine Hi Linda, A car dealership or tire dealer should be able to reprogram the sensors. Every vehicle make/model's TPMS is different, so reset procedures are not the same. But keep asking until you find a dealer with the tools and knowledge to handle this situation; it most likely must be done by a service technician using up-to-date TPMS scan/reset tools.
