Game-changing advancement in TPMS service

VDO REDI-Sensor Multi-Application TPMS Sensors deliver a game-changing advancement in TPMS service. They are compatible with all major TPMS scan tools and are pre-programmed, so there is no need for new training or specialized programming tool investments. If a shop has the tools and knowledge to work with the OE sensors, it’s ready for REDI-Sensor.

VDO REDI-Sensor sensors come ready to use right out of the box, and are designed to relearn to the vehicle in the exact same way as the OE sensors. The sensors are OE-validated for fit, function and reliability. REDI-Sensors can be used by themselves or in combination with OE sensors on a vehicle.

REDI-Sensor provides the seamless solution changeover from OE sensors that shops are looking for, while maintaining the OE peace-of-mind that technicians and their customers demand.

Continental has a strong heritage as one of the industry’s leading manufacturers of OE Tire Pressure Monitoring Systems, sensors, related sensor service parts, and passenger and commercial vehicle tires. All VDO TPMS replacement parts are made in ISO-certified facilities to the same quality standards as the OE parts supplied to automakers worldwide.
