I changed to wintertires today.
I have the sensors. My dealer said that a warning signal for tires will come up if you dont calibrate that you have changed tires.

The warning signal did come up after a while since the company that changed my tires did not have the know how to calibrate.

What is the screen diagnostics for? Shouldn´t you see the tirepreassure error in the diagnostic screen also?

Cant you do the calibration in any way by my self? on my VW i just pressed a button

Can't the dealer reset the TPMS for you? I agree that with a touch screen control center, you should be able to do it yourself from within the car.

Hi Michael, when you changed to winter tires did you get new TPMS sensors with the tires or they used the ones from summer tires?

Michael, I am afraid that those new sensors have to be "paired" with car's receiver. I know on our race car we have to literally input sensor's code into ECU's database. Usually car is able to recognize right wheel even if you change wheels around (from left to right), but it has to know ID of the sensor. I will change my tires to winter tires next week but will move the sensors from summer rims to winter rims. I will let everybody know how that works.
