BMW TPMS Auto-Learning Now Covered by Alligator RS-series Sensors

Alligator RS-series universal TPMS sensors cover the BMW vehicles that support auto-learning and come equipped with Continental sensors. 2014-21 2 series, 2014-19 3 series, 2014-20 4 series, 2014-21 i3/i8, 2016-22 X1, 2018-22 X2, 2014-18 X5 & 2015-19 X6

The vehicles are an example of a continuing trend among car manufacturers – the TPMS systems support automatic learning. The BMW models can automatically learn new sensors IDs without the need for LF actuators in each wheel well.

If no scan tool is available for sensor-ID registration, then techs can simply park the vehicle for 20 minutes then drive until it recognizes the new sensors. Sensors that have an auto-learning feature are especially helpful for DIYers that install wheels themselves but don’t have access to a special tool for sensor-ID registration and for wheel shops that rely on the end-users to handle the TPMS learning process.

Shops that stock Alligator RS sensors are utilizing user-friendly TPMS units which make 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. Wegmann will continue to add value to the RS series TPMS sensors from Alligator by adding coverage for different vehicle applications so that the product never goes obsolete.

When replacing OEM sensors with aftermarket units, rest assured that RS series TPMS sensors from Alligator will provide all the functionality 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.
