Will this reset procedure below work on a 2011? Or is the tool required? Can anyone recommend a tool that they use and has been good ( i.e. not broken?)


"The TPMS sensors can also be matched to each
tire/wheel position by increasing or decreasing the tire’s
air pressure...
The TPMS sensor matching process is outlined below:
1. Set the parking brake.
2. Turn the ignition switch to ON/RUN with the
engine off.
3. Press the Remote Keyless Entry (RKE) transmitter’s
LOCK and UNLOCK buttons at the same time for
approximately five seconds. The horn sounds twice
to signal the receiver is in relearn mode and TIRE
LEARNING ACTIVE message displays on the DIC
screen.
4. Start with the driver side front tire.
5. Remove the valve cap from the valve cap stem.
Activate the TPMS sensor by increasing or
decreasing the tire’s air pressure for five seconds,
or until a horn chirp sounds. The horn chirp,
which may take up to 30 seconds to sound,
confirms that the sensor identification code has
been matched to this tire and wheel position.
6. Proceed to the passenger side front tire, and repeat
the procedure in Step 5.
7. Proceed to the passenger side rear tire, and repeat
the procedure in Step 5.
8. Proceed to the driver side rear tire, and repeat the
procedure in Step 5. The horn sounds two times
to indicate the sensor identification code has been
matched to the driver side rear tire, and the
TPMS sensor matching process is no longer active.
The TIRE LEARNING ACTIVE message on the
DIC display screen goes off.
9. Turn the ignition switch to LOCK/OFF."

I would guess that the procedure would work for an '11. I have performed it on my "Cherry-Ot" on a couple of occasions, and found that it works just fine. However, I have seriously considered purchasing a reset tool. I too, am anxious to hear others opinions/recommendations of a good apparatus that works well for others.

The tool shown in the early post is the way to go. I own that tool and is very simple to use. For the adding or removing air, it did not work on the wife's 11 equinox.
