Kia Forte TPMS Coverage Now Available on Alligator Sens.it RS-series Sensors

Alligator sens.it RS & RS+ universal TPMS sensors now cover the third-generation Kia Forte that comes equipped with Pacific sensors (2019-22).

The vehicle is part of a growing trend in Hyundai/Kia models – early TPMS systems could only register new sensors through the diagnostic port (OBD-learning) but some new cars support automatic learning.

If no scan tool is available for manual sensor ID registration, then simply simply drive the vehicle until the pressures for the new tires show up on the display or until the TPMS warning light clears. 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 new sensor ID registration 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 tire display will show the new sensor locations after driving for a few minutes.

Shops that stock Alligator sens.it 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.
