JS Products Inc. is naming a manager to lead tire pressure monitoring systems (TPMS) products for its Steelman brand.
Audi notes that if a TPMS warning light illuminates on a 2007 A4, S4 or Avant vehicle, and various DTCs are stored (voltage supply, no/low antenna signal, etc.), check to see if the vehicle’s windows have been tinted.
Every vehicle from 2008 model year to the present is equipped with a tire pressure monitoring system (TPMS). If you service tires, you’ll be forced to deal with TPMS. That means that you must invest in a TPMS tool (preferably a combination tool that allows scanning/diagnostics, activating, programming if needed and relearning).
Just like on any vehicles with TPMS that features aluminum valve stems, do not install a chrome or chrome-plated steel valve cap on an aluminum valve stem on a Hummer H2.
Changing tires without damaging TPMS sensors is one of the topics to be covered in a free webinar: “Tackling today’s most common tire and wheel challenges – a review of Bosch’s new line of tire changers,” April 21, 2015, at 2 p.m. ET.
