so, with that gizmo you can get your TPM to read without rolling? How is the GS911 involved?
Most people would have their bike to a BMW dealer to have the TPS replaced.so, with that gizmo you can get your TPM to read without rolling? How is the GS911 involved?
That was tried for the rear tyre pressure sensor, however you still need to wake the sensor up after replacing the battery.Some have managed to ‘disassemble’ a sensor to replace the battery, rather than go to the exoense of buying a whole new sensor.
Sometimes I need one of these to get out of bed in the morning. :grin2:If you have had to install new tyre pressure monitor sensors to your wheels
Your need your GS-911 and a 'Tyre Pressure Sensor wake up tool'
I used this, bought off E-Bay, cost 12 pounds, worked a treat :grin2:
TP Monitor System
Activation Car Tyre pressor monitor
made for SPX GM
Depends, it can vary, time, heat, rotation, damage removing or replacing a tyre....can effect them from what I gather.So how long do the batteries last in the TPS?
Mick, as an example, I started getting the low battery warning for the rear TPS on the dash late last year (2018). I put up with it until I had the wake up tool in this post and a couple of new sensors from BMW Motorworks in the UK and timed the changeover with new tyres fitted earlier this year. All went well with the changeover and initiation of the sensors using the GS-911 and wake up tool. Assuming original TPS (have owned the bike since 2014), 8y for one of the TPS batteries to reach end of life. I saved myself a small fortune doing it myself, and reckon I probably paid for my GS-911 with this one action based on expected costs to get BMW to do it.So how long do the batteries last in the TPS?
I'd worry a bit about the battery flinging itself out of the holder at speed.Do you think it would be worth soldering in a CR2032 battery holder to make future changes easier? View attachment 110478
