VDO REDI-Sensor is a multi-application TPMS sensor that covers over 85% of all vehicles in North America with only three sensor SKUs and replaces over 140 OE sensors, the company notes.

Continental Commercial Vehicles & Aftermarket, manufacturers of OE TPMS and OE-engineered TPMS replacement parts, has released a new video in its TPMS training series.

Titled, “TPMS Vehicle Relearn vs. TPMS Sensor Programming,” the new video highlights the differences between a traditional TPMS vehicle relearn procedure and the new sensor programming procedure required by some universal and programmable TPMS sensors.

The video explains that universal, programmable and other replacement sensors that use cloning are often manufactured as blanks and must be programmed with software for the specific vehicle application before they can be used.

This new, extra step may require specialized training and new tools. The video contrasts these new extra-step sensors with VDO REDI-Sensor, a multi-application TPMS sensor that comes pre-programmed and ready, right out of the box, for vehicle installation, just like an OE sensor.

“A vehicle relearn has always been required during sensor replacement, but now, some aftermarket sensors also require sensor programming prior to installation and relearn says Steve Landis, product manager.

“This is a new, added step beyond the vehicle relearn procedure, and it requires a specific programming tool investment with specialized software for the sensor programming process. VDO REDI-Sensor never requires added TPMS sensor programming.”

REDI-Sensor is designed to follow standard OE vehicle relearn procedures, and works with all major TPMS scan tools, including those from ATEQ, Bartec, OTC / SPX, K-Tool (T.I.P.S.) and Snap-on.
