Don, can that re-set be done via a standard OBD II code reader that can clear the codes?
Or is it more complicated that that?
A generic OBDII code reader won't do it. The transmitter will have an ID code printed on it which will need to be registered not in the engine computer but elsewhere. Any legitimate tire store should be able to do this. TPMS transmitters get broken on a regular basis when tires are mounted or dismounted. I strongly advise taking pictures of the labels on the TPMS unit before installing it. OBDII is just generic uniform engine data and codes.
