TPMS pressure sensors

TPMS sensors - tire pressure under control.

TPMS sensors are designed to monitor tire pressure -

TPMS pressure sensors (Tire Pressure Monitoring System) - this is a device inside the tire responsible for the immediate detection of too low tire pressure. Thanks to the wireless communication of the sensors with the receiver placed inside the car, the driver has current data on tire pressure, thus reducing the chance of causing an accident. In addition to ensuring safety, we can reduce fuel consumption and tread wear by maintaining the correct tire pressure.

Advantages of pressure sensors

Sensors are perfect replacements for expensive original equipment installed in the car. Thanks to the long-lasting battery, the device is able to work for up to 7 years. The sensors are mounted using screwed valves, which allows the adjustment of the contact angle in the range of 12o - 40o. Thanks to this, they fit almost all models of rims, not only those offered on the website.

Adaptation of sensors to the car

Tire pressure monitoring system -

In order for the sensors to be usable, they must be programmed and activated. We can do this in two ways.

1. Sensor copy

In order to program the sensors, the ID of the original device is required. This number can be scanned by putting the programmer to the wheel or reading it directly from the housing of the original sensor. In the second case, it is required to remove the tire from the wheel. After storing the ID numbers in the new sensors, the car should detect the new devices without any problems.

2. Learning Mode

The sensors are assigned a new ID number and then mounted in the wheels. Auto then needs to be started in learning mode so that the computer can detect and save new devices. Activating and saving in learning mode varies depending on the car manufacturer and model:

  • Automatic mode (about 39% of cars) - in most cases it is enough to install sensors in the wheels and drive a short distance at a speed of 30 km/h, in other cases it is enough to activate the appropriate function in the computer menu (e.g. BMW)
  • OBD mode (about 36% of cars) - it is required to scan the installed sensors with a diagnostic device and then connect the OBD module to the connector and upload new IDs to the computer.
  • Stationary mode (about 25% of cars) - a sequence of actions is required (e.g. locking the door with the key button and sounding the horn at the end of the procedure) depending on the car model.
