calibrate TPMS
« on: June 18, 2022, 06:23:40 PM »
Is it possible to recalibrate the tire pressure sensors possibly using the GS-911?
My displayed tire pressures are always 2 lb psi to low!

No, you cannot calibrate the tpms with the GS911.  What I have done is the following, but you will need a "Wake-up" tool.

Deflate the tyres completely. ie remove the valves.  Leave them deflated overnight so that the sensors go to sleep.

Replace the valves in the morning and wake the sensors up.  Now inflate the tyres to the desired pressure.  Tpms should now read relatively accurately.

I don't know what model BMW you have, but on my 2007 R1200ST the displayed tire pressures are corrected to 20C (68F), so they almost never agree with my tire pressure gauge.
