Default Service Tire Monitor System

Hello, from drageOCCA,
I'm newly registered to this site. And would like to get information on
my C5 displaying a message that reads Service Tire Monitoring System.
I did see someone else with this same issue. Any advice on self repair
would be appreciated. After previous dealership service tech's who don't know what they are doing - I refuse to ever take my vets to a dealership for repairs. After owning C3,C4 and now C5, I've become extremely good at doing my own sevice work with the assistance of some qualified mechanic friends. :

You are probably going to need new sensors. First, drive your car and check your DIC and see which tire is reading "XXX". Then try re-training them. Do a search in this forum to find the write up. Then if it still tells you to service the tire monitoring system, you may have to replace the sensors in the tires. Fortunately, you have the cheaper sensors to replace. There are several sources for new sensors, several tire stores and Costco sell them as well as some of the supporting vendors here. You will have to break down the wheels to get to the sensors so a tire shop would be advised. Good luck...

New or rebuilt sensors will fix up right up.

Here is the procedure. Plus some helpful sites

http://www.corvetteforum.com/techtip....php?TopicID=1

http://www.stengel.net/diccodes.htm

1) Turn ignition on ( TO reset tire pressure monitor Procedure )

2) Press "Reset" button in order to clear any IPC display warning messages


3) Press and release the "Options" button on the DIC to scroll through the display options until the IPC display is blank

4) Press and hold the DIC "Reset" button for 3 seconds

5) Press the "Options" button again until TIRE TRAINING message appears

6) Press "Reset" button until the IPC "Learn L Front Tire" message appears in order to begin the programming

7) Install the J41760 Tire Pressure Monitor (TPM) System Programming Tool (large magnet will do) over the left front valve stem

8) The horn will sound, indicating the left front TPM sensor is programmed (if this takes more than 15 seconds, pull magnet back and try again, it will give you three tries. Then you must start over)

9) When the horn sounds, proceed to program the next TPM sensor in the following order as directed by the IPC messages: -Learn R Front Tire -Learn R Rear Tire -Learn L Rear Tire Programming can be canceled by turning ignition off, waiting 2 minutes with no sensors being learned, finishing all 4 wheels or through the DIC. If the programming is canceled with less than 4 sensors learned, it will only accept the codes programmed up to that point.
