Alligator sens.it RS & sens.it RS+ universal TPMS sensors now cover the fourth generation Chevy Silverado and fifth generation GMC Sierra. The 1/2-ton (1500) pick-ups were introduced for the 2019 model year while the HD models (2500/3500) were released for MY 2020.
GM trucks have always used 315 MHz sensors but the new models come equipped with 433 MHz parts and also have a feature that’s new to the pick-ups: tire-fill assist. The Tire Fill Alert System indicates via audial & visual cues when a tire is being inflated. After re-inflating a tire after the low-tire warning has come on, the appropriate turn signal will flash and the truck will inform the driver that the optimal tire pressure has been reached by sounding a single horn chirp. If the tire is accidentally over inflated, the vehicle will sound three successive horn chirps.
When replacing OEM sensors with aftermarket sensors, 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.
