LAS VEGAS — General Motor Co.'s new aftermarket ACDelco TPMS sensor will fit almost three-quarters of the TPMS-equipped vehicles built since 2006.
"TPMS sensors need to be replaced after five to seven years of service because no battery lasts forever," David Mestdagh, general director product development, ACDelco, said.
"Our design strategy with this new product line was to deliver a high quality part while reducing stocking requirements and installation time."
The TPMS components include a sensor body, a 3-volt lithium battery, corrosive-resistant snap-in rubber valve or aluminum valve stem, plastic cap and electro-less nickel-plated valve core with a superior valve sealing design.
Shops need to carry just five part numbers to cover the majority of TPMS equipped vehicles, the company said. The sensor is pre-programmed to follow existing OE re-learn procedures, eliminating the need for special calibration tools or loading software.
