Tyre Pressure Sensor Failure!

Post by nomaD » Thu Dec 28, 2017 11:01 am

Anyone help?
Purchased a new set of winter wheels / tyres and paid the extra for the tps's
Fitted wheels, tried to reset the sensors and got to.....49% followed by the RDC failure message. Tried several more times with the same issue before contacting the seller.
They advised that the sensors were working when they checked and to take it to a Kwik Fit to awaken them....?

I have just been to Kwik Fit, where the technician (who looked about 12) advised me that the kit they have will only work with the sensors they sell and will not detect any others....so I asked since I do not know the type they are and the seller advised me to get Kwik fit to check them could you not try? No mate, it will only work with the sensors we sell......

So, what can I do? Is there another option I could try before the seller reopens on the 4th Jan?

On a side note, is the power limited whilst it has an RDC failure? It seems to bog down when pulling away with no traction control light activation.

I take it nobody has ever had this issue!
Might just live with it for 4 months.
