We get a lot of questions regarding OEM TPMS PARTS. Many Different companies supply tire pressure sensors for car manufacturers including BERU, SCHRADER ELECTRONICS and VDO. They are supplied when the car is first built, these are not aftermarket sensors. We work directly with the manufacturers going off original parts numbers to Guarantee proper fitment.
The sensor measures the pressure and temperature in the tire and transmits this data along with the unique ID of the TPMS to the tire pressure monitor WCM (Wireless Control Module) and EVIC. If the TPMS ID is logged with the WCM then it is compared with the placard pressure and if under pressure then a warning light is lit on the EVIC or dash. That annoying ( ! ) symbol coming on? Its because your tires are losing air pressure.
The manufacturers of the Chrysler and former Daimler Chrysler TPMS are Schrader Electronics and VDO. The Chrysler Model range utilising TPMS technology includes the following brands:
- Chrysler – 300, 300M, Aspen, Concorde

There are plenty of things to distract us while we are on the road, cell phones, ipods, kids. TPMS sensors are designed to keep your focus back on the road. Your tires are the only thing on your vehicle in constant contact with the road, lets try to keep it that way.
