The manual states every time we replace or rotate our tires we need to "Initialize the Tire Pressure Warning System".
First off, when it says Turn the POWER switch to ON mode, does that mean without pressing down the brake (as in not "starting up the engine")? And the mode described is after the first push of the Start button, correct?
That reset button (TPWS "Set" button) I'm assuming is hidden under the cover under the steering wheel. Is it easy to pop open? Any precautions, suggestions, advice on prying open the cover?
Here is a pic of the reset button.

It is adjacent to the led that illuminates the footwell.

You don't remove anything just get your head way under the steering wheel look toward the led and the TPWS reset button is right there.

Once you know where it is you can press it simply from the drivers seat. Just feel under the steering wheel and press.

:D:D:D:D

Each rim has a TPM sensor with a unique ID. The recommended tire pressure front is 33psi and rear is 32 psi.

Presumably the system stores the tire pressure associated with each sensor.

If you rotate tires front to rear diagonally you should adjust the pressures accordingly.

Which means each TPM sensor will now be sensing either a higher or lower pressure than originally stored.

I don't know if the TPM sensors read a 1 psi change but if they do you will need to reset the system.

Also if you run a higher pressure differential front and rear you will definitely need to reset the system.
