No you do not need the old codes...

We are only interested in codes that come back afte you do the clear and then drive the car...

He needs to clear the codes and then drive the car for at least several miles (20 or more would be better) and then pull the codes.

If you have never pulled codes before (and I suspect that to be the case) then watch this video and perhaps take some notes out to the car so you can pull them:

Post ALL the codes including the H or C or HC after each 5 character code. List the codes under the sensor they show with. is 10 - PCM or 28 - TCS or 40 - BCM ..... etc .....

If any sensor(s) have NO COMM next to them post that also.
I took the car in today to get it aliened since got new tires and rims and I asked the Chevy dealership to see if they could program the sensors. They tried two different ways and told me they could not get it to connect. On my way home I decided to try the screen again and there they were-all four reading the correct pressure. I guess I needed to drive the car. I do not know what they did but it worked. When I got home I called the dealership to let him know that he solved my problem. Also I want to thank everyone for their suggestions. The forum is truly a wealth of information. Thanks for help.

[QUOTyouE=Vetteman Jack;1597392624]For the sensors to work, the car has to be in motion. Take it out for a spin and see if the readings appear.[/QUOTE]

Also what cold tire pressure do you run? These were 36-37 cold. On the car is says 30psi

TP should be 30 psi. But check it with a decent gauge.

Not to hijack the thread but I bought these and cant seem to get them to work.

I tried the magnet method and also to it to a shop where they had the gm tool, but still no tire pressure readings.

Did you get the horn beep at every corner? Did you take it for a drive after you got the beeps?

I have no beeps or chirps. Drove it home from the shop about 5 miles this am. My horn doesn't work from the steering wheel but will chirp when you hold down 2 buttons on the keyfob. Horn will also work when alarm is activated. (service column lock warning?)

Since the horn works from the key FOB's it doesn't matter whether it works from the steering wheel. The BCM honks the horn for the TPMS training and when the horn buttons are pushed.

If the horn did NOT honk when the TPMS were attempted to be trained to the car, then they are NOT going to report pressures in the DIC.

Try a stronger magnet or place the magnet on the barrel of the wheel just behind the stem when trying to train them. The horn MUST honk for each TPMS for all of them to be known to the car and report pressures.

Since 2000 is the last year for the old sensors, it's possible that he needs the new sensors. I had the opposite problem with my car - I ordered the ARP headbolt kit for a 2004 C5, which is the new style short bolts. Turns out my car has the old LS1 block that requires the longer (and more expensive) headbolts. Possibly same type of problem here? Any way to find out without having to buy another set of tire sensors?

I think I need to clear the old tpms codes since I had a LF bad. Other 3 original still worked since new. Will follow up.
