Mercedes TPMS Auto-Learning Now Available on Alligator RS-series Sensors

Alligator RS & RS+ universal TPMS sensors now cover Mercedes vehicles that have next-gen auto-learning and come equipped with Schrader sensors. First introduced on the E Class (2017 model year), then rolled out to the AMG GT, CLS, & G Class (2019MY) and now also used on the late-model C Class, EQE, EQS, S Class & SL Class.

The vehicles are an example of a continuing trend among car manufacturers – the TPMS systems on newer vehicles support automatic learning. Due to the vehicles’ advanced TPMS system (sensors work with the ABS system), the models can automatically learn new sensor IDs without the need for LF actuators in each wheel well.

If a scan tool isn’t available for registering the new IDs, 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 TPMS sensors are utilizing user-friendly units which make the techs’ jobs easier, reduces unnecessary downtime in the bays for 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-sensor line 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 the same functionality that the vehicle offers!

Regardless of the tool that’s used for sensor programming, these vehicles should be available after completing the latest update.
