TPMS on 2nd hand wheels

Hi

Recently updated my alloys from standard 18inch to 20inch on my Evpque Pure 64 plate (2014MY). After getting them fitted a few miles later I got hit with a "Typre Pressure Monitor System Failure" upon inspecting these wheels it turns out who sold me them didnt have the sensors. So I bought a set of 4 from Maltings (Newer version of the sensor apparently this began in 2014)

So today I got the sensors fitted, took the car a long drive, left it half an hour and still getting the warning message and the computer is telling me there's no TPMS on the car?

Any idea's how I can clear this?

RE: TPMS on 2nd hand wheels

Did you give the supplier your car’s VIN, the latest TPMP valve stems are grey, you may have the pre-2014 sensors that are large flat things that sit inside the tyre attached to the valve stem. If you are going to the Scottish LaNd Rover Show May 26/27th Duckworths usually have a big stand, if you call them this week they may bring some North for you.
The other thing is do you have a full sized spare? Did you fit a sensor to that too?

Soon going back - RRSport L494 in Corris Grey with Ebony/Lunar interior and Ebony Headliner - pimped up with 22" wheel and polished stainless steel skid plates from and rear. Being replaced by a Mini Countryman PHEV in April 2018.
Previously owned - Zanzibar 5 Door Dynamic with contrast, lux, plus and intelligence packs And a 2011 Fuji White SD4 Auto Coupe Lux + Ebony Plus Pack and a couple of other extras
Still on my drive - 1996 TDi300 Defender 90 County

RE: TPMS on 2nd hand wheels

Thanks for getting back to me, I never checked the VIN but I bought the newer ones since I read those were needed for 14 plate onwards (small black units with silver valves attached)

I don’t have the spare tyre option, would I be worth trying to move my old units from my 18 inch wheels, the guy who told me to order new units said this was tricky and they can get damaged easily doing this.

If it something diagnostics may need to clear due to the change in wheel size?

No don’t try to remove them, they are easily damaged
