TPMS...self-learning?

So I swapped wheels and tires today. The new wheels had new TP sensors in them and I have the tool to calibrate the sensors. I was expecting a dash light when I started the car....nothing. I pulled out of the shop thinking the ones on the stock wheels might be in range....nothing. I adjust the air pressure in the new tires and check the gauge on the gauge on the dash and it corresponds to what I had in the tires. Just to see if they were correct, I filled the driver side rear tire to 10 psi higher and the dash read correctly.

So, is the TPMS in the '15's self learning? I didn't need the tool at all.

From what I understand it can be a few miles before you'll get the dash warning, but I have also heard for some people they auto sync.

I had 3 new sensors synced at a tire shop and the 4th apparently was in power saving mode so they told me to come back when the warning light comes on to sync it. Already been 50+ miles and never came up so I guess that one synced by itself.

I mean, my dash is showing the pressures I set the tires to and it showed when I brought the driver rear up 10 psi.

Not sure if any of this helps. Sounds like they do self learn to an extent

If all 4 are showing accurate PSI readings then looks they all synced up for you. Not sure if this is new for 15's or you were one of the lucky ones

I'm not too boo-boo lipped over it. I've wasted a lot more than $50 on things much less tangible over the course of 40 years. lol

The OEM ones are self learning regardless the years.

I knew they were self-learning if you just rotated tires, but I was under the impression that if you replaced a sensor or put new ones on that it had to be recognized by the TCM.

As said, if they are oem sensors, they will relearn without the tool
