#6 of 11 08 Trailblazer tire pressure monitor

I have an 08 Trailblazer LT3 and my tire monitor system goes nuts about every three days , I have taken it in about 6 times to have the system "re- learned"
and even have the sensors changed, I love my trailblazer but I don't love
the service tire monitor light that keeps going off

You are wrong to start on the r/f. In your manual, when the monitor message appears, key on engine off.Hold the re-set button till the horn "chirps" leave key on. Let air out of L/F till "beep" R/F air out till "beep", R/R air out till "beep" L/R air out til "beep beep" (2)
Shut key off. Set tire pressures to specs. Turn key on,,,, go around the block.....DONE.
I JUST WENT THROUGH THIS !!!!!

P.S. The "J" tool you want to know about is for "activating" a new wheel sensor only!
The tool was $900.00. The newer trucks (2010) will activate a new sensor on it's own.
Just did a 2010/ 2500 HD. with no $900.00 tool! (but had steering controls...might matter,just follow the owners manual in the glove box.

I just bought a 07 Sierra, had the same problems. I took the truck to my local Discount Tire shop. 5 minutes, no charge, problem fixed. They had the knowledge, and the tool to reset everything.
#10 of 11 1999 GMC Sierra Warning Chimes ON No ignition
Oct 30, 2011 (1:53 pm)
As soon as either door is opened, a one- second interval chime comes on. It is not the normal "door-opened" or "key- in- ignition" chime. It chimes twice in the one second. When door is closed, chime continues. When key is placed in tumbler, chime continues as well.
There is also, after about 10 seconds, a clicking sound similar to the four way flasher sound, that starts. There are no outside lights coming on while this happens.
When key is turned to Run, all panel lights come on and warning lights come on.
With transmission in Park or Neutral, there is no action at all when trying to start - no solenoid noise or anything at all.
When I pull out the 4o amp fuse labeled Ignition A in the underhood electrical box, the chime stops.
Voltmeter reads 12.5 volts. Briefly turned on headlights - they appear very bright. Battery connections are good and tight.
Help! Any suggestions?

I just purchased a 2004 1500 crew cab from a private party. The odometer read 48132 mi. However after taking the truck home and looking at the display that shows the trip odometer the personal trip was turned on and showed 60680 mi. along with an average speed of 80.1 mph. The engine hr meter showed 10.4 hrs. There was a new battery installed just before I bought the truck was wonder if that may have messed up the info or did someone roll back the odometer reading? The gentleman I bought it from was an older guy and seemed very nice, just wondering if I got taken. How can I find out? I talked to the local GM dealer and he said sometimes they might be able to get the odometer info of the computer but not always. I just dont see how the trip can read more miles than the odometer.
