Alligator sens.it RS universal TPMS sensors now cover the new 5th-gen Dodge Ram 1500 pick-up truck.
The truck is part of a growing number of Chrysler vehicles with advanced auto-learning technology.
The tire pressure sensors work with the ABS system to automatically locate and store new sensor IDs quickly, so the driving time can be reduced after installing new parts, the company says.
If no scan tool is available for manual sensor ID registration, park the truck for 20 minutes, then drive it until the pressures for the new tires show up on the display.
According to the company, using sensors that have an auto-learning feature is especially helpful for DIYers that install wheels themselves but don’t have access to a scan tool for new sensor ID registration and for wheel shops that rely on the end-users to handle the TPMS learning process.
The sensor also supports location detection, so when rotating tires, there’s no need to reset the system manually. Follow the same procedure as auto-learning and the display will show the new locations on the dash after driving for a few minutes, the company says.
