I didn't find anything for the question I have so hopefully I didn't repost this.

Since we have TPMS on our car is it OK to do tire rotation(front and back swap or cross swap) without any problem or we have to reset the sensor after each time we rotated?

never cross swap tires. ever. they will disintegrate. Front to back/back to front. Same side only. Its a stupid way to kill yourself.
Thanks for the heads up but it depends on the type of tires you have. What you said is not 100% true tho.. If your tires are directional then yes you can only do front to back/back to front, but if you have non-directional tires then you need to cross rotate.

The manual says only front to back and vice versa, not crossing them.

TPMS not required to be reset once you rotate your tires as the manual says only front to back and vice versa, not crossing them.

I asked my dealer the same question. They said after rotation, the car will figure it out. It may take some miles of driving for the computer to figure it out though. I don't recall anyone reporting back if the time required is minutes or hours.

There is a "TPMS Reset" item one one of the Intouch menus- not sure what it does or if this is what is referred to in the owners manual
