Thumbs up Self Inflating Tyres

Thanks for that detailed post iTNerd

I've been waiting for this, though: Goodyear develops self-inflating wheels that constantly maintain the perfect air pressure

...Ohio-based Goodyear began developing the Air Maintenance Technology (AMT) in 2011 and will now start testing the tyres on trucking fleets in the US and Canada over the next 18 months.

This is brilliant. I was a bit hesitant on the internal sensor part but when I read the battery life is 5 years, then that's perfect. I believe this can be fit by any tyre shop? Atleast the sensors that is and the device should be from a proper accessory shop. And you can choose the Nissan Sunny (called the Versa apparently) as well but it seems it;s not compatible. Any reason why I can't retrofit the Civic one itself in the Sunny (due to the display size or the sensor restrictions?)

Here, mate.
Took the plunge after reading your thread.

While you took this route, I also took a non-intrusive OE look route..

You saved me some money and hassle!! I was about to buy one of those external tpms systems from Aliexpress that powers from 12v socket. I need to use it on my Civic. But this one suits the car better. It doesnt look like an aftermarket fitment at all. Thank you very much

Now if you dont mind answering, did you fit the monitor part yourself? From where do we tap the power for it? I already have a reverse cam tapping from 12v ignition. So thats where I could power up tpms too?

Also what is that fog lamp switch next to tpms for?

@iTnerd, Looks really good, Gels really well in the interior and also gives the driver a great view to keep a check on

Also regarding the TPMS in your yeti, I am sure you can activate the TPMS reset in your MFD, I have done the same in my Jetta, So it won't require VCD cable everytime you need to clear the light. Do check for it in your car

Default Re: Honda Civic: OEM-like TPMS with internal sensors

Sorry for not keeping the thread updated. Had a long holiday. Anyway, had this TPMS for 3 weeks or so, and every drive I take is reassuring with the instant pressure/temperature readings of the 4 tires available right at my cross-hairs. I noticed that, with normal recommended air pressure of 32 psi, the pressure reading goes at max till 34 or 36 psi after 30 mins or so driving. And it comes down back to 32 psi after starting driving on rest of 2-3 hrs. The temperature readings remain within 42 Celsius. When you start the car the first time for the day, it shows the most recent last reading. And once you drive 50-100 meters or so, the system reads the new readings. And reading is updated every few minutes (3-4 mins I think), to optimize the battery life of the sensors. After hearing tires blowouts and accidents, I think a TPMS system is the most sensible upgrade one can invest. Whether one is on long highway drive or high speed run, one is always alert on the critical parameters of the tires to act timely and accordingly and avoid life threatening situations, and not to forget, other advantages such as better mileage and tire life prolongness.

The battery is not replaceable in the internal sensors. 5-7 years battery life.

Yes, any tyre shop should be able to install it. But be careful while mounting the tyres back to the rim, as the mount machine may damage the sensor if it is too close. As for the fitment, if the display panel size is of the same size of your car, it should work. This is just a generic TPMS, not specific to Honda or Toyota except for the size of the display which is similar to buttons on Hondas/Toyotas.

Yes, if you are into aesthetic and function, this system is perfect. Go for it! I fitted it from Driven. Any good car electrician will be able to fit nicely. From what I recollect, the power was tapped from the ignition as I want the system to start when electrical power is ON and stop when the power is OFF. This TPMS has its own fuse, so if something goes wrong with it, it won't affect other electrical parts of the car.

Can you throw more insights into the TPMS reset via MFD? I have not heard of such possibility on the Yeti from other forums.

Thanks, but wow. This is discouraging. I thought they were powered by CR2032 or like.

5 to 7 years is reasonable but I guess it's always good to have an option to replace the battery if ever required.
Wonder if we can buy the sensors separately when that happens?

I'm planning to install one on my Figo. But not completely sure how compatible this would be. I only found the Toyota compatible one on AliExpress:

AliExpress TPMS

Though it looks a bit different from the one you've installed must use the same setup process. Any pointers on how safe it is to wire these internally? I'm worried about it causing any issues if it malfunctions.

Default TPMS installers in Chennai?

I just got a TPMS kit.
http://www.orange-electronic.com/en/...ofit_p409.html

Am looking for tyre workshops familiar with TMPS installations in Chennai. Struggling to find one. Does anyone know a tyre shop in Chennai which does TPMS installations?

I don't think you will succeed in finding a workshop that will do what you want. Try contacting the 'ignite garage' in ECR who should be able to help or see if you can contact the manufacturer and ask for installation help so that you can give instructions.

BTW, how much did this device cost and from where did you procure it?

Thanks Petrolhead. Am in touch with Raghav and he has given me a lead. Will keep this thread updated. The unit was a gift from a friend. Retails at about $150.

If you approach them to install TPMS they may say they have not done that. But if you take it to say any tyre balancing shop, you can help them mount it, balance it and pop on the tyre.

Can you post the actual picture of the attachment to the rim. I think this can be done by any tyre balancing shop as long as you have instruction to fit them.

Go to any reputed tyre specialists in the city and guide the boys there to mount the wheel sensors. It's pretty straight forward. You can't go wrong with it. I got the wheel sensors mounted on 3 of my cars (OE as well as after market type) from a normal tyre shop where the guys had never seen such sensors, leave alone fitting those.

The valve to sensor block fitting has kind of a swivel arrangement. The block which comes inside the tyre has to seat onto the rim as you tighten the valve from the outside part of the rim. Tightening torque required is not too high, so tell the guys not to tighten it with all their strength.

Use the following link for generic guidance - http://accessories.volvocars.com/en-...-314389-1/2016
