(07 Colorado Extended Cab Z71 4 x 4)

Pulled the trigger and bought an 05 cluster for $85 with 32,000+ miles on it (being an 04 to 06 cluster, no TPMS Indicator), turned it on and it flashed it's 32,000+ mileage for a second, then lit up with my trucks mileage (42,000+), and now all is good, no TPMS light to bother me. When I eventually upgrade to new wheels and tires (going to 17" or 18"), will not purchase new TPMS Sensors, nor move the TMPS Sensors over from my old wheels, so I saved the potential several hundred dollars to purchase a new TPMS Sensor set.

So I got the 06 cluster swapped it out to test it and it worked. No tpm warning, mileage changed to match that of my truck. I drove around 300 miles with the 06 in. I put my 08 cluster back in because I want to swap LEDs on the 06. When I put the 08 back in the mileage didn’t match the new mileage that the old cluster displayed. I just put it back in and haven’t driven around yet, but will the 08 show the correct mileage again? Or is it stuck at the mileage it was when swapped?

It's working correctly , the 08 cluster is stuck at the miles recorded when removed . It will advance if you exceed the 300 miles you drove while the 06 cluster was installed .

Should it advance now though? Because currently: miles on truck and 06 cluster ~103773 miles. Miles on 08 cluster: ~103440. Shouldn’t the 08 cluster bump up to match the mileage on the truck?

Sorry , I'm getting a bit confused . I have not gone back and forth with the clusters as you are doing . Did you drive the truck with the 08 cluster back in ? If so it should advance miles as a cluster can only add miles to match the BCM .

Yes sorry. 08 is back in the truck now. The 08 cluster did not bump up to compensate the ~300 miles that was driven when the 06 was in there

MO the easy and most cost effective way to go is to search for an 04-06 cluster on ebay or LKQ that has less mileage than your current mileage . When installed the cluster will immediately display the actual truck mileage.
