In my 2002 it was necessary to "manually" retrain the tire sensors after each rotation. Retraining requires the use of a donut shaped magnet like the ones found in a microwave oven magnetron. My 2002 has an overhead computer and here are the steps necessary to do the training. The computer only reads input from four tires.
1. Step the computer display until the display is blank.
2. Press and hold the "Reset" button (about 20 seconds)
3. The computer now is ready to display the tire sensor outputs and will ask if you want to retrain the sensors first... reply yes to this.
4. The computer will ask for each tire sensor to be activated, beginning with the Left Front tire. Activation is done by placing the magnet around the valve stem. The cars horn will honk when the computer has linked to the sensor. If the sensor and computer do not link within 20 seconds. Retraining aborts.
My 2002 had a full size spare, and the spare did not have a tire sensor. It is easy to determine if any tire has a sensor. If there's no nut at the base of the valve stem, there's no sensor.
