Has anyone changed wheels on a C5 99 to 02 with the newer sensors? Can you program them yourself? Can they be programed?
You need to put sensors in the wheels according to the year car you have, I believe that 99' & 00' take the old style and the 01's and newer take the new style, and you can program them yourself with a magnet, let me know I have the GM part number magnet, but any strong magnet will work.
I've done the "programming", it only takes about 3 minutes or less. Look in your manual, the official term is "Tire Training" which is what you'll need to get the Driver Information Center (DIC) into by a few keypresses.
You need a good strong magnet. I used one out of an old stereo speaker that was about a 5 inch diameter and about 1 inch thick.
You put the DIC into tire training mode and start at the left front wheel with the magnet up against the valve stem. The horn then honks only once when its "trained". Then you walk immediately over to the right front tire and it honks and do the same and then to the rear right, rear left and then it is complete.
According to the article in the link below, "For '97-00 you'll need four each of the following: sensor PN 10438853, $126.25 each; retaining nut PN 10268439, $1.88 each; and O-ring washer PN 10268438, $1.88 each. These are the same for all four wheels. In 2001, GM went to an FM bandwidth sensor, with the following part numbers: sensor with O-ring PN 2571358, $80; and retaining nut PN 25708165, $3.68."
Have a look at the 2nd half of this article for more details:
