Training program –
Fit for TPMS service

For workshops, we offer suitable information and training programs about the TPMS service. 

In our training sessions, trainers explain – in theory and in practice – everything that is important for a successful TPMS service. In doing so, we not only refer to BH SENS products, but all tire pressure sensors and products related to the TPMS service.

We can provide training at your location or close to our plant in Bretten, Germany. The training program can be complemented by a plant tour, where you can experience the production of the IntelliSens tire pressure sensors. Register today!

> TPMS training courses

TPMS training for automotive mechanics
We’ll familiarize you with the TPMS. Learn everything there is to know about the sensors. Experience first-hand the advantages of the IntelliSens in a practical tire fitting setting.

TPMS training for wholesalers
Find out everything you need to know about TPMS. The training covers the legal basics, TPMS types, the use of TPMS diagnostic tools, and the procedure in the tire service center. This way, you’ll always have the right answer and the right product on hand for your customers.

TPMS training for retailers
We’ll introduce you to the different types of tire pressure monitoring systems, since as a salesperson, it’s important for you to know the ins and outs of the TPMS market. Here you’ll gain a better understanding of the BH SENS sensors, and we’ll also bring you up-to-date on the latest developments.

TPMS training for wholesale technical support
In order to provide the proper advice to your customers, you need to have in-depth know-how. This also applies to TPMS. In our practical tutorial, we’ll familiarize you with the way they work, the types of systems available, and the basic concepts. Afterwards, you’ll be ready to face even the toughest questions or problems your customers might have.

1. What type of TPMS sensors does BH SENS manufacture?

Currently there are many types of TPMS sensors on the market. BH SENS has developed an universal sensor, IntelliSens, which enables service centers to provide a quick replacement. The IntelliSens Universal Sensor is compatible with all originally installed TPMS sensors. As a supplier to major automobile manufacturers, BH SENS also produces OE replacement sensors. BH SENS delivers original parts to many car manufacturers, such as Porsche, BMW, Daimler, Audi, Bentley, Land Rover, and Ferrari. BH SENS replacement sensors have the same quality as OEM parts.

2. How do I find the matching sensor?

You will find the matching sensor on the IntelliSens Product Finder

3. How are RDE replacement sensors installed?

Each BH SENS RDE replacement sensor can be used directly and without programming after installation. You have to make sure that you have selected the appropriate RDE sensor. After installing RDE sensors they need to be relearned to the vehicle. Please find further details in the manual included in every sensor packaging.

4. How are IntelliSens sensors installed?

BH SENS developed the IntelliSens Universal Sensor for the aftermarket, and it is suitable for most vehicle models with direct-measurement TPMS. With the aid of a TPMS diagnostic tool, the IntelliSens can be programmed for the particular vehicle model and then be installed directly. Please find further details in the manual included in every sensor packaging.

5. Do I have to program BH SENS sensors?

Each BH SENS RDE replacement sensor can be used directly and without programming after installation. After installing RDE sensors they need to be relearned to the vehicle.
UVS universal sensors need be programmed with a TPMS diagnostic tool for the particular vehicle model. The relearn procedure is not requiered in most of the cases when using the copy function of the TPMS tool. 

6. How do I mount a BH SENS tire pressure sensor with metal valve?

1  By using the carriage bolt, mount the valve and sensor together finger tight (about two turns). Both, valve and sensor, should still be able to adjust to different angles.

2 Put the valve with the mounted sensor through the valve hole from the inside of the rim. Press the sensor onto the rim and mount the torque nut by hand.

3 Make sure to use a torque wrench with 4.0 Nm / 35 in-lbs. Ensure that the sensor is touching the rim on all sides. Only this ensures the correct mounting of the sensor.

4 Tighten the torque nut with the torque wrench in one continuous movement. Around 3 Nm / 30 in-lbs you will notice a sluggish movement until the shear collar breaks free. Turn further until the final torque of 4.0 Nm / 35 in-lbs is achieved. Only than the sensor and the valve are correctly secured.

7. How do I mount a BH SENS tire pressure sensor with rubber valve?

A Lubricate the rubber valve with tire bead lubricant. Make sure
that the sensor is not coated by tire bead lubricant.

B Insert the rubber valve through the hole from the inside of the
rim and pull the rubber valve in by using an appropriate rubber valve
mounting tool. Standard rubber valve
mounting tools are not suitable for mounting tire pressure sensors.

C Ensure the rubber valve is pulled vertically through the hole of
the rim and the sensor is not tilted. You must check the correct fitment
of the rubber valve after the mounting process is completed.

D After the rubber valve is mounted, the sensor must not touch
the rim at any point.

8. What kind of TPMS tool do I need to program a BH SENS sensor?

A complete list of compatible devices can be found in our product portfolio. BH SENS RDE replacement sensors do not require any programming.

9. I have a worn valve. Can I just replace the valve or does the whole sensor need to be replaced?

All BH SENS TPMS sensors consist of two parts which allows the easy and low-cost replacement of just the worn or defective valve without replacing the sensor.

10. When will a TPMS be required by law?

In the USA, a TPMS for passenger vehicle has been mandatory since 2008. In Europe, passenger vehicles produced since November 2014 are required to be equipped with a TPMS. 

11. Where can I purchase replacement sensors?

BH SENS does not sell directly to consumers or to service centers. Please visit our Distributor Locator to find information about dealers of TPMS products in your area.
