    Tire pressure monitor?

    Guest-only advertisement. Register or Log In now!
    I was wondering if any one knows what it would take to retrofit the dynamic package TPMS to the normal TTRS, Mine has the temp and pressure but i have a friend that would like his to do the same thing, not sure if anyone has looked up what it would take to retrofit or knows the part numbers of the TPMS sensors that read the pressure and temp

    For the start, what can the normal TPMS do? I assume itís an indirect system that detects low pressure from wheel spinning.

    I think to retrofit direct TPMS, here are the things that needed:

    1. TPMS Sensors in all 4 wheels
    2. TPMS Receivers in all 4 wheel wells
    3. Wiring the receivers to computer
    4. VAGCOM Coding

    I think the most challenging part is #3.

    The UK forum has a thread on this, but as far as I know, nobody ever figured out the coding. I'd love to have this option as well. I think they had the wiring shown in that thread.

    I would definitely want the integrated system myself, I'm not a huge fan of adding additional displays and controls if not needed. Hope someone eventually figures it out!

    I'd like to find out as well. It's the only feature of the dynamic package I really wanted, but not worth $6k!

    Where do you see the temp and pressure? I could not find it in the menu. Thanks in advance.

    It's only available if you have the dynamic package on a TT RS in the states. That's why a lot of us would like to be able to retrofit it.

    So it appears the parts for this seem to be around $500. Someone has got to be able to figure out how to retrofit this. Of course the coding will be the trick I suppose, but as long as that module can be plugged in easily to cars that don't currently have the option this should be able to work. You would think this would be fairly plug n play, but who knows until someone actually makes it work. I wish Audi would have made this easier for us.

    So on a similar topic, what brand tire pressure gauge is best? All 3 that I have at home read about 4psi differently.

    Yeah, me too. But the real key is consistency. Use only one gauge and remember to reset the MMI after filling. The gauge on my ol' Craftsman inflator is my consistency.

    Until somebody can figure out how to retrofit the TPMS I went the FOBO route. After a lot of reading. Seemed like most of the complaints came from people who tried to install without reading or most importantly watching the install video and installed the product wrong.

    After watching the install video took about 5 minutes to install with the locking nuts. Worked right off no issues. Iíll post if any issues arise. Image1528509927.954757.jpgIMG_0576.jpgImage1528509948.978640.jpgIMG_0578.jpg

    "Best" is probably not what you want as I have seen some in the many 100's of dollars. For my money Longacre Racing is the best value.

    Do you include in your estimate of cost the 4 in wheel sensors/transmitters? I checked with the dealer about the cost of 4 sensors for my second set of wheels and I seem to recall something like $1k.

    You can get the same tpms on Ebay for way cheaper that's what I run on my other sets of wheels

    I had the OEM sensors installed in my HRE wheels in the hope of retrofitting this in the future.

    Accu-Gage is $20 and they are quite reliable and accurate. https://www.amazon.com/Accu-Gage-Pro...words=accugage

    I have one that I used constantly as a mechanic for about 5 years, 20 some years ago. It's old and been through the ringer and still damn close to a brand new one I purchased about 2 years ago. The difference is they actually calibrate them. Anything that slides is utterly useless, it must be dial. Accugage is bourdon tube, which is common design. The think that ruins a tire gauge is care, abuse and drop is what will ruin the accuracy. It is still a measurement instrument.

    I have retrofitted the direct TPMS system to my car. Please check out this thread.

    Here are couple pictures to demonstrate it.
