The easiest way to speed up TPMS work in your shop is to eliminate the need to call your supplier and wait for a TPMS sensor delivery. By keeping the four REDI-Sensors Multi-Application TPMS Sensors on hand, you’ll be ready to get to work on most every vehicle that comes into your shop. Instead of waiting for a parts delivery, or spending time programming a ‘universal’ sensor, you can get right to work on your customer’s vehicle.

Why would I need dozens of OE sensors?

A lack of standardization and a wide variety of OE and aftermarket TPMS sensors on the market have caused tremendous TPMS parts proliferation. Many of these sensors require distinct RF protocols and use unique modes of operation. Parts stores have struggled to keep up with the huge number of TPMS sensors now on the market.

Some manufacturers have tried to address the TPMS sensor parts proliferation with ‘universal’ sensors that are supplied as blanks and need to be programmed before they are installed. For technicians, this means they may need to buy specialized tools to do the programing. These programmable sensors may require technicians to learn specialized sensor relearn procedures, different from the OE procedures. Many of the TPMS service issues experienced by shops today are caused by problems with programming these ‘universal’ sensors.

Avoid TPMS sensor service delays

To avoid service delays, always make sure your TPMS Tool’s software is the latest version. The most recent generation of TPMS sensors won’t relearn properly without the latest TPMS tool software.
