Yes it will need to be reprogrammed at the dealer for proper calibration thats why they are not telling them this .You can try this if it dons not work then you will need to go to the dealer.Disconnect the sensor with the key on and reinstall the sensor .Then disconnect the battery and reconnect after about a minute or 2.Then go on an road test and it should reset.If not the dealer will have to do it with the factory scanner to calibrate it.These are the next steps.Please rate excellent service so I can get credit for my help thanks.Bonuses greatly appreciated.Im here if you need any further assistance just let me know.
