    this should work on all 2015+ suv and 2014+ pickups
    browse thru the DIC info screen until you get to the tpms display, then press and hold the select button (checkmark button) for about 5 seconds, the horn will honk twice and the display will say tpms relearn, then use your tpms tool starting at the front left drivers wheel use your tool to read the sensor, once the horn honks once proceed to the next wheel in a clockwise direction, as the next sensor is read the horn will honk once again when the last wheel is read the horn will honk twice and you are finished.

    Still the same in 2019 on the Tahoe, all my other cars and SUV's relearn themselves without the need of the tool

    Yeah. I just done get why GM has a manual relearn process. Never had to do this with any other car. Crazy

    What's the TPMS tool you speak of?

    The relearn procedure isn’t necessarily about the vehicle relearning the TPMS sensors, but rather the vehicle understanding which TPMS sensor is at which corner of the vehicle. When you scroll to the TPMS page in your instrument cluster, and you see the diagram of your vehicle, and the corresponding pressures, the TPMS relearn is how the vehicle tells you which-tire is what-PSI.

    if you rotate your own tires, learning how to perform the relearn sequence is important. Heck, even if you paid to have your tires rotated, knowing how to do it yourself may save you a trip back to the servicing tire shop, in the event that the shop forgets to complete the job in full and relearn your sensors. ;)

    You didn’t have to do this in the past with the first generation of TPMS technology because vehicle instrument clusters just simply showed a low tire pressure icon when low pressure was detected. But not which specific tire was low. The only time you had to relearn a sensor was when you replaced one or more of them.

    Most cars don't show you which corner the TPMS pressure is at. That's why you must relearn the position with these. When you do a tire rotation you don't have to relearn but then your locations will be skewed.
