    This information is for the Express 3500 Van.
    Is that the van you have? If not, reply with which engine you have.

    The TPMS sensor matching process is outlined below:

    Set the parking brake.
    Turn the ignition switch to ON/RUN with the engine off.
    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. If your vehicle does not have RKE, press the Driver Information Center (DIC) vehicle information button until the PRESS TO RELEARN TIRE POSITIONS message displays. The horn sounds twice to signal the receiver is in relearn mode and TIRE LEARNING ACTIVE message displays on the DIC screen. If your vehicle does not have RKE or DIC buttons, press the trip odometer reset stem located on the instrument panel cluster until the PRESS TO RELEARN TIRE POSITIONS message displays. The horn sounds twice to signal the receiver is in relearn mode and TIRE LEARNING ACTIVE message displays on the DIC screen.
    Start with the driver side front tire.
    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.
    Proceed to the passenger side front tire, and repeat the procedure in Step 5.
    Proceed to the passenger side rear tire, and repeat the procedure in Step 5.
    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sensor identification code has been matched to the driver side rear tire, and that the TPMS sensor matching process is no longer active. The TIRE LEARNING ACTIVE message on the DIC display screen goes off.
    Turn the ignition switch to LOCK/OFF.
    Set all four tires to the recommended air pressure level as indicated on the Tire and Loading Information label.
    Put the valve caps back on the valve stems.
