VDO REDI-Sensor™ Multi-Application TPMS Sensors:
Extensive domestic, Asian, and European vehicle coverage for North America
covered with just 4 sensors!
REDI-Sensor makes TPMS service faster, easier and more profitable.
TPMS service has grown more and more complex, with competing sensor standards, multiple scan and trigger tools, expensive equipment and software updates. Now, the VDO REDI-Sensor brings simplicity, ease of installation and better profit potential to TPMS service. REDI-Sensor is a technological breakthrough based on the concept of having one TPMS sensor preprogrammed to work with multiple makes and models.
Works with all major TPMS scan tools.
Look no further – REDI-Sensor is the TPMS service solution that the aftermarket has been waiting for! It’s simple. Take REDI-Sensor out of the box, install it, and follow the OE vehicle relearn procedure – that’s it! Unlike competitive sensors, there is never a need to ‘clone’ or to load vehicle software / protocols to a blank ‘universal’ sensor. These steps take specialized programming tools, which add time, cost and complexity.
Ready to install right out of the box.
REDI-Sensor requires no special sensor programming and relearns to the vehicle just like an OE sensor. While competitive multi-application and universal programmable sensors require the added cost of specialized sensor programming tools, software, and labor to program or clone a blank sensor, REDI-Sensor comes ready to go onto the vehicle, right out of the box.
Faster hunt mode.
REDI-Sensor saves valuable time during the vehicle relearn process, when using TPMS scan tools that incorporate a hunt mode. REDI-Sensor uses an ‘intelligent design’ to wake faster and deliver positive results sooner. This helps prevent the vehicle relearn process from timing out, which eliminates the need to redo the procedure.
Enhanced tire / wheel components.
The REDI-Sensor pivoting valve stem angle, combined with technically superior valve stem hardware / sealing components, maximizes wheel compatibility.
Less inventory for parts providers.
VDO REDI-Sensor replaces a host of OE sensors, including banded, snap-in and clamp-in types from Beru, Continental, Lear, Pacific, Schrader, Siemens VDO and TRW. With REDI-Sensor, parts stores can substantially reduce the number of sensor SKUs required to provide full TPMS coverage and eliminate costly service delays. Parts stores can also deliver REDI-Sensor without worrying whether their customers have the TPMS scan tools necessary to work with it, because if they have the tools and know-how to work with OE sensors, they’re ready for REDI-Sensor.
Eliminates lost service opportunities.
Service shops only need to keep a small supply of REDI-Sensors on hand to be ready to service practically any vehicle that comes in. No waiting for a part delivery and no lost sales to drivers that can’t leave their vehicle.
Broad and deep TPMS application coverage.
VDO REDI-Sensor provides multi-application coverage for a broad range of cars, vans, SUVs, crossovers and light trucks from 2002 – 2014. Expanded Audi, GM truck (PWM), Mercedes, Volkswagen, Volvo, Subaru and even more Asian vehicle coverage available now!
Only 4 REDI-Sensor sensor assemblies provide extensive coverage for domestic, Asian and European cars, trucks, SUVs, crossovers and vans, replacing over 200 OE sensors … and counting! The hundreds of new applications covered by REDI-Sensor have been added to the already broad and deep coverage of the VDO OE TPMS Replacement Parts Program.
Continually expanding coverage - With VDO REDI-Sensor, we are researching and validating new vehicle applications daily – ensuring that our REDI-Sensor coverage continues to grow, and our customers are ready for whatever vehicle enters the bay!
