Alligator sens.it RS & sens.it RS+ universal TPMS sensors now cover the Dodge Ram HD pick-ups (2500 & 3500) with next-gen automatic TPMS learning, which was introduced in the 2014 model year.
The trucks are 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 sensors can also be used on the rear inner wheels on Ram 3500 dually trucks. The rear inner sensors send a special signal to the ECU that indicates they’re on the inside, so those wheels cannot be rotated to the outer locations.
If a scan tool isn’t available for sensor-ID registration, then simply park the truck for 20 minutes and drive until the pressures for the new tires show up on the display.
Using sensors that have an auto-learning feature is especially helpful for DIYers that install wheels themselves but don’t have access to a scanner for registering new sensors 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 – simply follow the same procedure as auto-learning and the display will show the new locations on the dash after driving for a few minutes.
Shops that use Alligator TPMS sensors are working with a part that supports the full range of OE features which makes the techs’ jobs easier, reduces unnecessary downtime in the bays for TPMS learning or sensor issues, helps the business’ bottom line, and keeps its customers happy and coming back.
When replacing OEM sensors with aftermarket parts, rest assured that RS series TPMS sensors from Alligator will provide all the functionality that the vehicle delivers! Regardless of the tool that’s used to program the sensors, these vehicles should be available for programming after completing the latest update.
