Tire pressure sensors C5 X7

Post by davoxx »

Can I swap a set of wheels with tire pressure sensors between two cars and get them to connect to the new car?
How long does it take for the sensor to enter sleep mode and how do I wake a wheel out of sleep mode?

I dont see why not but you will likely need an exciter to reprogram them to a new car along with a decent diagnostic tool.

There are at least two different types of sensor depending on the year of the car the wheels came from and they're not swappable. What years are we talking about here?

Of course they are not compatible.
I don't know the year, getting a set from the scrapper.

Damn really regret supporting Citroen these days.

Of course if its the right part i dont see why they cant be reprogramed to another car.
You can actually have 2 full sets of sensors for the car programmed. Designed for people who swap between summer & winter wheels/tyres.

Not sure what the difference is but servicebox lists one as EU standard 64.02 ??
There were 2 part numbers for this type but the older one has now superseded onto the newer part number. These one look like they have rubber valve stems.
There is another listing & there seems to be only one part no & this one looks like a metal valve stem.

I tired the set from the other car, which have been unused for at least 1yr, my car did not detect any of them. so I'm guessing dead battery or just not detected.
I don't think there is a cheap way to fix this,.

When the sensors detect no vehicle movement they enter Parking Mode. They then only send a data transmission frame every 13 hours instead of every 1 minute when in Driving Mode (unless there is a puncture or deflation detected then it's every 5 seconds). They never go back into the factory shipping 'Stop' mode once they have been programmed - this mode is only for new sensors when being stored and prior to the first activation.

However you do need to programme them if the wheels are rotated, so with that said, I would expect the same operation would be required when putting on the other set.
