TPMS Sensor Batteries

We receive tons of questions asking about the batteries installed in TPMS sensors.

What type of batteries do OEM sensors use? Can a depleted TPMS battery be removed and replaced? How do you know when a TPMS sensor’s battery has failed? What is the life expectancy of a TPMS sensor? 

Most TPMS sensors are powered by a 3-volt lithium ion battery. Some TPMS sensors use a 1.250-volt nickel metal hydride battery. The battery is encased in the sensor’s molded plastic housing. A battery that is running low on or is depleted requires the replacement of the ENTIRE TPMS sensor assembly.

There are many types of original equipment manufacturer tire pressure monitoring sensors being factory installed in different automotive makes and models. What is common between most system is that sensors are designed to transmit tire pressure data to the vehicle ECU at regular intervals…..Click here to Read on or go to: http://www.tpmsdirect.com/TPMS_Sensor_Batteries_a/850.htm

Huf RDE014 and RDE015 TPMS Sensors

Tired of having to go through the hassle of using a TPMS mounting strap kit to install your Ford/Lear banded TPMS sensors?

Huf (formerly Beru) assisted in the design of the Ford/Lear banded TPMS sensor and are now able to use the sensors protocol in their own design.

Huf has released two valve-mounted TPMS sensors that are designed to replace the Ford/Lear 6F2Z-1A189A and 8C2Z-1A189A banded TPMS sensors.

The Huf RDE014 and RDE015 follow the traditional valve-mounted TPMS sensor style and eliminate the need to use a TPMS Mounting Strap Kit for TPMS installation. Both the RDE014 and RDE015 sensors function 100% like the OE Ford/Lear banded sensors and include the valve stem assembly and service kit.

The Huf RDE014 replaces Ford, Lincoln, Mazda, Mercury, Roush, and Saleen vehicles that were factory equipped with banded-type TPMS sensors. For more information on the Huf RDE014, please go to: http://www.tpmsdirect.com/Huf_Beru_RDE014_TPMS_Sensor_p/rde014.htm

The Huf RDE015 replaces Ford vehicles that were factory equipped with banded-type TPMS sensors. For more information on the Huf RDE015, please go to: http://www.tpmsdirect.com/Huf_Beru_RDE015_TPMS_Sensor_p/rde015.htm

Both sensors are available for purchase at TPMSDirect

BMW TPMS Sensors

Do the factory installed TPMS sensors on your BMW need to be replaced? Are you looking to install TPMS sensors in your spare wheel set? TPMSDirect is your #1 source for the latest in BMW TPMS Sensor technology. 

BMW utilizes a Direct tire pressure monitoring system in all of its vehicles. A Direct TPM syste uses tire pressure monitoring sensors installed in each wheel to measure pressure in each of the four tires. Pressure data is then transmitted wirelessly to a central receiver unit. The unit interprets the data and relays the information over to the driver. Modern technology allows TPMS data to be displayed on the vehicle’s on-board computer, with individual pressure readings in each tire. A traditional, more widely used system, simply displays a TPMS warning light (_!_) when the pressure in one or more tires is 25% or more below factory specifications. 

We carry original equipment TPMS sensors produced by leading European TPMS manufacturer Huf / Beru. The following BMW vehicles come factory equipped with Huf / Beru TPMS: 1 series, 3 series, 5 series, 6 series, 7 series, X1, X3, X5, X6, Z Series, Alpina, and all BMW M models.  

Visit TPMSDirect to find the latest in original equipment tire pressure monitoring sensor technology for BMW and get your vehicle back to being the Ultimate Driving Machine.
