Tire Pressure Monitoring Replacement Sensor Activation and ID Learning Guidelines
As required by NHTSA, vehicles equipped with a TPM system, include a low tire pressure telltale and a TPMS
malfunction indicator. Some vehicles may be equipped with only the low tire pressure telltale to indicate a low tire
pressure as well as a TPM system malfunction. Please refer to the vehicle owner’s manual for more information on
TPMS warning lamps.

I. Enhanced Sensors: Part Numbers 218898-101 and 218898-102
IMPORTANT: For vehicles equipped with original equipment EnTire Solution / TRW Automotive Enhanced
TPM systems only!
IMPORTANT: Before a sensor can start sending information to the electronic control unit (ECU), the sensor
must be activated. EnTire Solutions sensors are shipped in a storage or nonfunctional mode in order to
conserve battery power; therefore, they need to be activated after having been installed on the wheel. Only
an activated sensor can send tire information to the ECU.
. Replacement Sensor Installation and Activation
Install the replacement sensor on the wheel. (It is recommended to use the EnTire Solutions service
installation poster guidelines when installing a new TPMS sensor).
2. Ensure that all tires are inflated to the vehicle recommended placard pressure and mounted on the vehicle.
3. Turn the ignition ON – The sensor is now activated.
. Sensor ID Learning
1. To learn the new sensor ID, drive the vehicle consistently at 15 mph (24kph) or greater for up to 7 minutes.
2. After 7 minutes, verify that the TPMS malfunction indicator is extinguished, indicating that the new sensor ID
has been learned.
NOTE: If during the sensor learning ID process, the vehicle speed is less than 15mph (24kph), the learning
procedure will be suspended until the speed is increased to greater than 15mph (24kph).
