Tire Pressure Monitor System

Print

The Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) is to monitor the tire inflation pressure and gives the information of tire inflation pressure to the driver by showing the warning light on the instrument panel. The Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) consists of four wheel-mounted tire pressure sensor unit (TPMS transmitter), a receiver and a warning light. The wheel-mounted sensor unit is an assembly consisting of the pressure sensor, related electronics, and power source. The tire valve stem is integrated into the assembly.


CAUTION
If the TPMS warning lamp illuminates while you are driving, you have to move your car to a safe area and check your tires. In case, you found under inflated tires, please inflate them to the recommended pressure. Otherwise, you could have a serious accident.

ID Registration Procedure



Specific to:

Suzuki Forenza 2007-2008

Suzuki Reno 2007-2008

Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) is assembled on each tire to check tire air pressure. This system only turns on warning lamp regardless of TPS position even if air pressure of one tire becomes less than warning pressure. Therefore, IDs registration is not necessary in case of rotation or replacement of tires. However, IDs registration is necessary when shipping vehicles, TPS is replaced due to Sensor break/failure or Low battery, or Receiver is replaced.

  1. Turn the ignition switch to ON , with engine OFF and apply the parking brake.
  2.  
  3. Put receiver into LF tool by Scan tool. Initiate the procedure by following the menu selections.
  4.  
  5. If successful, you should hear a double horn chirp sound and flashing low tire indicator (MIL) will indicate Learn Mode has begun.
  6.  
  7. Within 2 minutes, go to the LEFT FRONT tire.
  8.  
  9. Trigger the tire sensor to send a learn message (*use any method described below).
  10.  
  11. If successful, a horn chirp is heard.
  12.  
  13. Repeat #3 above for the RIGHT FRONT tire.
  14.  
  15. Repeat #3 above for the RIGHT REAR tire.
  16.  
  17. Repeat #3 above for the LEFT REAR tire.
  18.  
  19. If successful a double horn chirp is heard and low tire indicator (MIL) will turn off.
    NOTE
    If one of the tire sensors does not program within the 2 minute interval, the system will automatically exit programming mode and steps 2 - 6 must be repeated.

  20.  
  21. If air was added or removed to trigger a tire sensor learn message, then the tire pressures should be adjusted to the correct placard cold tire pressures at this time.
    NOTE
    Methods to Trigger Tire Sensor Learn Transmission There are several ways to force a tire sensor to send a learn message.

  22.  
  23. Delta Pressure While the tire is stationary and when the air pressure changes rapidly by at least 1.2 psi, the sensor will transmit a Learn Mode-Pressure Triggered message. Inflating or deflating the tire until a horn chirp is heard will ensure that the learn happened.
  24.  
  25. SPX TPMS tool (SPX p/n J-46079) Holding the tool near the tire stem will force the sensor to transmit a Learn Mode-LF Triggered message, using the LF tool. Several manufacturers produce a Low Frequency (125 KHz) tool that can activate the sensors in the same way as the SPX tool.

To Install:


WARNING
Do not use the valve by itself without attaching the Snap-In TPMS part.


WARNING
Do not fit the tire to the rim if you are unsure that the valve has been fitted correctly.


WARNING
Do not re-use the old screw or Snap-In valve. Always ensure that a new Schrader screw and Snap-In valve is fitted.

  1. Assemble the new valve to Snap-In enclosure by using a T10 TORX screwdriver and a new Schrader screw. Securely grip the valve stem in the hand, do NOT hold the Snap-In enclosure while fixing the screw as this will lead to over tightening. Tighten the screw until the valve begins to rotate in the hand. Note that the valve core is NOT fitted in the stem at this point.
