Continental Commercial Vehicles & Aftermarket, manufacturer and supplier of OE-engineered aftermarket parts for HVAC and engine cooling, door systems, brake systems, tire pressure monitoring systems, engine management, fuel systems and instrumentation, has announced that its innovative, VDO REDI-Sensor™ Multi-Application TPMS sensor program can now replace over 279 OE TPMS sensors.
Only five REDI-Sensor sensor assemblies are needed to directly replace the OE sensors in a very wide range of domestic, Asian, and European cars, trucks, SUVs, crossovers and vans from 2002 to 2018.
Most versatile TPMS Sensor on the market 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 VDO 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. If a shop has the tools and know-how to service OE sensors, it’s ready for REDI-Sensor!
