VDO REDI-Sensor™ Multi-Application TPMS Sensors:

Now covering over 85% of all vehicles in North America with three part numbers. No sensor programming or sensor programming tools required.

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.

If the shop has the TPMS scan tool / equipment for servicing OE sensors, it’s ready for REDI-Sensor. Unlike other sensors that require the purchase of specialized sensor programming tools and software upgrades, no additional purchases, training or investments are needed with REDI-Sensor. It works with all major TPMS scan tools, including ATEQ, Bartec, OTC and T.I.P.S. and Snap-on. With REDI-Sensor, technicians can use the OE vehicle relearn procedures for TPMS service – no new service routines are required.

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 trigger tools that incorporate a hunt mode. REDI-Sensor uses an “intelligent design” to wake faster and deliver positive results sooner. This prevents the relearn process from timing out, which can require repeating the procedure.

Less inventory for parts providers.

VDO REDI-Sensor replaces a host of OE sensors, including banded, snap-in and clamp-in types from Continental, Lear, Pacific, Schrader, Siemens VDO and TRW. With REDI-Sensor, parts stores can substantially reduce the number of SKUs required to provide full TPMS coverage. 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 – including expanded truck and 433.92 MHz coverage!

VDO REDI-Sensor provides multi-application coverage for a broad range of cars, vans, SUVs, crossovers and light trucks from 2002 – 2014. The VDO REDI-Sensor program covers over 85% of all vehicles in North America with only three sensors. We are continually researching and validating new vehicle applications, ensuring that REDI-Sensor coverage continues to grow and our customers are ready for whatever vehicle enters their bay!

OE designed and validated.

We are one of the industry's leading manufacturers of TPM Systems, sensors, receivers and tires. REDI-Sensor has been developed by engineers that have designed TPM Systems for the world’s leading carmakers. Like all our replacement parts, REDI-Sensor is built with the same quality standards and precision as the TPMS units we supply to automakers.

OE engineering for the aftermarket:

1. VDO multi-application sensor technology easily syncs with a variety of vehicles
2. Ready out of the box! Pre-programmed and designed to follow OE vehicle relearn procedures
3. Valve core, stem and hex nut treated against corrosion
4. Valve cap seal minimizes air loss
5. Pivoting valve stem makes installation easier and accommodates a wide range of wheel rim profiles
6. Robust waterproof design resists tire air moisture
7. Technically superior valve sealing design

REDI-Sensor service parts.

VDO REDI-Sensor replacement parts and service kits are available and include valve core, valve nut, seal, seal washer, and valve cap. Replacements are also available for the sensor’s durable metal valve stem, which is reusable.
