More information on the different types of relearn procedures (general instructions):

Automatic learning
Park the vehicle for 20 minutes then drive it for 10-20 min.
Note: some vehicles must be in learn mode before driving starts, which can be initiated using the dashboard buttons.

Enable learn mode: start with the ignition off. Tap the brake, turn the ignition from off to run 3 times (leaving it in run), tap the brake, turn the ignition off, then turn it from off to run 3 times. The horn should beep. Leave the ignition on.
Test each sensor using a TPMS tool: front-left, front-right, rear-right then rear-left. The horn should beep when each sensor is tested.
Turn the ignition off – the horn shouldn’t beep.
Note: on some models, TPMS relearn mode is initiated using the hazard-flasher switch.

General Motors
Enable learn mode: turn the ignition on, then hold the key fob’s lock & unlock buttons until the horn beeps.
Test each sensor using a TPMS tool: front-left, front-right, rear-right then rear-left. The horn should beep when each sensor is tested, then it should beep twice at the end.
Note: some vehicles enter learn mode using the dashboard buttons or steering-wheel buttons – navigate to the tire display then hold the enter button for a few seconds until the horn beeps.

Test each sensor using a TPMS tool then connect the device to the vehicle’s diagnostic port and register the new sensor IDs.

Enable learn mode: Turn the ignition on and open the driver-front door. Press the door-open switch for 2 seconds, then release it. Press the door-open switch again for at least 2 seconds, then release it. Finally, press the switch for 2-5 seconds then release it. The tire warning light should start blinking.
Note: the door-open switch must be pressed within 5 seconds of turning the ignition on, and the above steps must be performed with 15 seconds.
Test the front-left sensor – the warning light should blink 3 times. Test the front-right sensor – the light should blink twice. Test the rear-right sensor – the light should blink once. Test the rear-left sensor – the light should come on for 5 seconds, then turn off. Turn the ignition off.
Additional note: after enabling learning mode, each sensor must be triggered within 90 seconds.
