Hi guys,

I am looking to import my 2013 Cruze to the US for personal use and I am told by my GM dealership that they cannot install an OEM TPMS system on my car (which I need to make it compliant with FMVSS standards).

Has anyone seen or heard that this can be done?

Thank you,
Cristian

A couple of GM dealerships in Canada tell me that the onboard computer sold in Canada different than the American models which have an options for TPMS that can be enabled or disabled. It seems that in Canada, it either comes with TMPS or not, so that option cannot be enabled/disabled. I find this hard to believe, but this is what I have so far...

Some of the Driver Information Centers I've seen for CA cars are very different than what we have in the US. So, it wouldn't surprise me.

When I bought my (CDN) 2014 LT2 RS, it didn't have TPMS. I enquired about having it dealer installed, but was told basically the same thing and it would be prohibitively expensive.

My last GM car had TPMS, and it was quite accurate. The beauty of the GM system is that you reset the wheel sensors yourself when changing to snows or just rotating wheels. You don't have to pay the dealer to do it like some of the imports.

Unless you have the $70 tool, you can't do it yourself except on the 2011 (maybe 2012) Cruze.

You're right. I checked my 2014 manual and it refers to the TPMS Relearn Tool which is placed against the sidewall of the wheel being set. My old car was a 2008 and I set the DIC to the setting mode, and used the key fob to set the individual wheels in sequence.

Thanks for correcting me.
