Tyre Pressure Monitoring Systems

Tyre Pressure Monitoring Systems

How do TPMS Sensors Work?

autel 1

Every sensor has a unique identification that it transmits to a receiver via wireless remote frequency at 433 MHz (euro standard). The receiver then transmits the data to the controller allowing the information to display to the driver.
They are powered by an internal battery; this battery cannot be replaced. The battery life is expected to last up to 5-7 years’ dependent on annual mileage. To save energy the sensor doesn’t transmit data unless it is rotating, which also prevents the spare tyre from being monitored.  With every transmission of data, the sensor will also send a battery state signal, which workshop tools can use to diagnose a low battery

What If My TPMS Sensor Needs Replacing?

If the TPMS warning light is illuminated on your vehicle’s dashboard it will usually indicate a pressure drop in one or more of the vehicle’s tyres & needs immediate attention, however if the light is on due to sensor malfunction, usually due to battery failure, or physical damage, then the sensor will require replacement, use our vehicle search facility or contact one of our team for help finding the correct replacement.
Installing the replacement sensor will require tyre removal by a professional tyre fitter, the old sensor removing and the replacement sensor fitting correctly to the manufacturer’s specifications.
After fitting the sensor will require pairing with your car, the pairing procedure can usually be found in the vehicles handbook alternatively use our vehicle lookup or call a member of staff. The relearn procedure may be as simple as driving the car for a few miles, alternatively your vehicle may require dealer level programming and will incur additional installation costs, however this cost can be avoided by cloning the replacement sensor to the old sensor thus creating an exact copy, usually all we need is a number printed on your old sensor so don’t throw it away just yet, cloning would be done prior to shipping ask one of our team for details.

TPMS Cloning Service

TPMS Cloning Service

MaxiTPMS TS601 - TPMS Diagnostic / Service / Programming

MaxiTPMS TS601 – TPMS Diagnostic / Service / Programming

At TPMS Warehouse we have the ability to clone your existing TPMS OEM sensors that are registered to your vehicle’s ECU. This means that once you install the new TPMS sensors you can avoid having to reprogram the ECU and will avoid the dash error lights, as your vehicle will recognise them as if they were the originals.

To do this we will need your existing sensor ID’s – these are printed on the sensor body or we can wirelessly read the ID if the sensor is still transmitting.

To take advantage of this FREE Cloning service* using the Make Model and Year lookup on our homepage and simply order one of our Universal Programmable Sensors supplying your ID’s on the product configuration page, in the event that we require this information to programme your sensors and it hasn’t been supplied we will contact you to advise.

*Cloning is only available on certain universal sensors that are compatible with your vehicle

Cloning your existing sensors will ensure:

  • Save time with relearn procedures
  • Saving money on programming costs
  • There is a seamless transition from Summer to Winter Wheels and back again.
  • You will always have a spare in case of premature failure or damage.

OBD Diagnostic Relearns

OBD Diagnostic Relearns

MaxiTPMS TS601 - TPMS Diagnostic / Service / Programming

MaxiTPMS TS601 – TPMS Diagnostic / Service / Programming

This isn’t a DIY relearn unless you have the specific TPMS diagnostics available.

We offer this service via our Autocentre based near Blackburn, Lancashire; using our recommended Diagnostic and Programming tool the TS601 – Typical cost from £50

If you don’t have the original sensor ID’s available then cloning isn’t an option – you will need to go through the OBD relearn.

Why do I need to clone my original sensors?

Why do I need to clone my original sensors?

tpmsjeep

When you install new TPMS Sensors your car needs to ‘pair’ with them in order to communicate. This pairing procedure is known as the relearn procedure and is set by the vehicle manufacturer. There are three main relearn types: Driving, In Car Controls  or by OBD Diagnostics.
