Continental Releases Latest VDO TPMS Replacement Parts Catalog

Posted on April 20, 2017

The 2017 VDO TPMS Replacement Parts Program catalog is now available from Continental Commercial Vehicles & Aftermarket.

In addition to the latest application validations for VDO Redi-Sensor Multi-Application TPMS sensors and VDO TPMS OE sensors and service kits, the catalog highlights the new VDO Redi-Sensor with rubber snap-in valve stem.

The company says the VDO Redi-Sensor with rubber snap-in valve stem is designed to be easier to use for technicians who typically utilize rubber stemmed TPMS sensors. The sensor snaps onto the wheel and the sensor housing clips onto the valve stem without the need for hand tools.

Expanded Redi-Sensor coverage

The 2017 catalog showcases the latest applications for the VDO REDI-Sensor Multi-Application TPMS Sensor Service Solution. REDI-Sensor now has coverage for over 109 million vehicles, with new applications added continuously. Only five REDI-Sensor sensor assemblies are needed to replace over 270 OE sensors, delivering wide coverage for domestic, Asian, and European cars, trucks, SUVs, crossovers and vans from 2002 to 2017.

No programming, cloning or programming tools required

The company says that 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.

Continental says all VDO branded TPMS replacement parts are made in ISO-certified facilities to the same quality standards as the parts supplied to automakers worldwide.

Remember email? Sometimes in the communication that is texting, tweeting or ‘Snapchatting,’ email is taken for granted.
