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.
