2nd generation TPMS reset

Does anybody know if you can put the TPMS system in relearn mode? I know it can be done in earlier models. Any ideas?

Step 1: Set the tires to the following pressures, they have to be exact:
Tire position Tire pressure kPa (kg/cm2, psi)
Front LH 240 (2.4, 34)
Front RH 220 (2.2, 31)
Rear RH 200 (2.0, 29)
Rear LH 180 (1.8, 26)

Step 2: Locate the TPMS interface plug. This is a white female plug that is attached to the OBD II wire loom under the dash right about where your left
knee would be when sitting in the driver's seat. You may have to cut the tape that is holding the TPMS interface plug to the OBD II wire loom.
Step 3: Attach a paper clip or wire into the interface plug.
Step 4: Put your key in the ignition and turn it to the last click before the engine starts. This is the KOEO position (Key On, Engine Off).
Step 5: Tap the end of the paper clip (the end NOT in the interface plug, duh!) on any exposed ground (metal) 6 times.
Step 6: If you completed step 5 then the TPMS warning light will start to slowly flash and you have activated the TPMS relearn process. If it flashes
fast that's not right. If yours isn't flashing slowly then check your connections, turn the ignition off and start over at step 4.

Re: 2nd generation TPMS reset

Thanks but my issue is I am not able to put the car into the relearn mode. I tried all possible holes, different grounds points- nothing. So I am wondering if this procedure works on the 2nd gen specifically.

Discount tires can reset your TPMSs for free if you have a Discount tire store around where you live.
Did you have good connection

Re: 2nd generation TPMS reset

I don't know what my problem is. I have tried so many times. My light blinks 0.5 on, 0.5 sec off for 60 sec, then it stays on. I am just trying to enroll new sensors. I'm in NYS so no Discount tire for me.

Re: 2nd generation TPMS reset

you need to read the ids of the old tpms sensors but need the tool as none of the TPMS sensors are not activated. see the diagnostic chart i posted

Re: 2nd generation TPMS reset

Yeah.. I know. This is exactly what I am doing. However, step 5-6 is not working for me. Hence my question- can somebody confirm that this procedure works on FX2009+.

Code:
Are you sure you got step 2 & 3?

Step 2: Locate the TPMS interface plug. This is a white female plug that is attached to the OBD II wire loom under the dash right about where your left knee would be when sitting in the driver's seat. You may have to cut the tape that is holding the TPMS interface plug to the OBD II wire loom.
