Continental has introduced a new packaging design for its next generation of REDI-Sensor Multi-Application TPMS Sensors. Developed as part of an overall branding update coinciding with the launch of Continental’s next generation of TPMS Sensors, the new packaging employs an easy-to-read product identification promoting REDI-Sensor’s performance capabilities, key attributes and overall benefits to TPMS service.
Quick link to application lookup
“We’ve added a key feature to the new REDI-Sensor package to make it as informative and service ready as possible,” said Lindsay Smith, Continental product manager. “The back panel of the new REDI-Sensor package includes a QR Code that provides a quick link to the REDI-Sensor TPMS Application Online Lookup, so customers can quickly verify that they have the right TPMS sensor or service parts for the vehicle they are servicing. The lookup allows search by vehicle year, make and model, or VIN number and also enables access to REDI-Sensor TPMS sensor installation and relearn instructions, service tips, videos, and technical support,” Smith added.
The next generation of REDI-Sensor features four multi-application TPMS sensors that can replace more than 290 different OE sensors and provide coverage for more than 168 million VIO from model years 2002 to 2022.
Continental says the new REDI-Sensor line gives shops a significant TPMS service advantage by dramatically reducing the number of sensor SKUs needed to service incoming domestic, European and Asian vehicles. With only four REDI-Sensor SKUs on hand, shops are ready to provide TPMS service for virtually every vehicle that comes in, says Continental. REDI-Sensor TPMS sensors come ready to install, right out of the box, and require no added sensor programming or cloning. They are pre-programmed from the factory and designed to follow existing OE vehicle relearn procedures. REDI-Sensor works with most major TPMS scan tools and is compatible with TPMS features such as autolearning, pressure by position, and tire fill alert systems.
SERVICE ADVISORY: Continental product managers recommend that shops should keep their TPMS tools updated on a regular basis and make sure they have the latest software updates from their tool manufacturers to avoid potential service issues and delays.
