Expanded REDI-Sensor coverage

The new catalog showcases the latest application validations for the VDO REDI-Sensor Multi-Application TPMS Sensor Service Solution.  REDI-Sensor SE10002A increases coverage for over 3 million additional vehicles, while fully retaining all of the applications of SE10002. Overall, the VDO REDI-Sensor program now covers over 89 million vehicles and the coverage keeps growing daily.

Only five REDI-Sensor sensor assemblies are needed to replace over 244 OE sensors and deliver widespread coverage for domestic, Asian, and European cars, trucks, SUVs, crossovers and vans from 2002 to 2016.

According to Lindsay Smith, TPMS Associate Product Manager, “The overall VDO TPMS Replacement Parts Program has also been expanded with additional coverage of OE sensors and service kits for a wider range of domestic, European and Asian vehicles. The part numbers in our new VDO 2016 TPMS Replacement Parts Catalog represent over 244 million sensor service opportunities and demonstrate Continental’s ever present and ongoing commitment to innovation, quality, and coverage.  It is our pledge and obligation to keep our customers profitable and ahead of the competition.”

Most versatile TPMS Sensor on the market 

As TPMS service grows more complex, service professionals can continue to count on VDO REDI-Sensor to bring simplicity, ease of installation and better sales and profit potential to TPMS service.  Unlike sensors that require programming, cloning and the purchase of specialized programming tools, software or training, no additional purchases or training are needed to get started with REDI-Sensor sensors because they are already pre-programmed from the factory and designed to follow existing OE vehicle relearn procedures.

Ready to install right out of the box  

REDI-Sensor is ready to use right out of the box and works with all major TPMS scan tools. Auto parts retailers can deliver REDI-Sensor without worrying whether their customers have the necessary TPMS scan tools necessary to work with it. If a shop has the tools and know-how to service OE sensors, it’s ready for REDI-Sensor!

Continental is one of the industry’s leading innovators and manufacturers of complete Tire Pressure Monitoring Systems, sensors and service parts, as well as passenger and commercial vehicle tires. All VDO branded TPMS replacement parts are made in ISO-certified facilities to the same quality standards as the parts supplied to automakers worldwide.
