Cheap at 117

Looking again I realise that this thing only works if you have a Bosch Diagnostic/servicing system. However, all Bosch service centres (and some independents) do and £117 can't be that much for them as it does other Renaults, BMW's and several other makes too I think).

I rang a Bosch dealer in Leicester who told me that it is possible to reset these things manually - i.e. yourself without any special equipment.... but didn't explain how... Is that true?

I bought the Haynes manual for the Laguna II and thats no use on this either (it tells you how to remove the control unit - unbolt it and unplug it - thanks for that insight Haynes...

Tyre Pressure Sensors

Has anyone tried an independent to have their tpm's reset?. I was talking to the MOT tester in a local garage about the possibility of having a second set of wheels (winter) with the only drawback of having to have the tpm's reset each time the wheels were swapped over.He said they would do it for £30 all in. I have since read that some models do actually allow for the dual programming of the tpm controller (car) for a second set of winter wheels, prob not available on UK models ...Dave

Renault Laguna II 1.9dci 2002 Tyre Pressure Monitor problems

I have a Laguna II with tyre pressure monitor and have just had it coded by the dealer using the laptop and remote pad that they point to each wheel to program the sensor..

I would like to know if when it is programmed should the pressures appear on the cluster straight away or do you have to drive a few miles for it to register, also, do the sensors have to register before you switch the car off again??

After having the sensors reprogrammed I drove for a few miles then switched off the car. When I got in the car again I drove for a about 15 mins but after this I got a sensor warning and all tyres have disappered from the display..

Is there a way of resetting the programming of the sensors on the dash...

Also does anyone know of any after market diagnostic software that can read the tyre pressures..

Thanks all

Have a look here.......

There could be a fault in the system somewhere that is loosing the info or the sensors have not been done properly, they should work after driving a few hundred yards.

Cheers for the reply but I think I have sorted it out...

I will explain what I done in case anyone out there has the same problem.

The sensors were programmed by the dealer, I was lucky because I knew someone there so it was done FOC, but when I started driving I drove for about 3 miles, on the cluster throughout this time is said tyre pressure ok but the pressures were not showing as it needs time to program.

I stopped swithed off the car and then wen out in the evening. After a while I got the orange warning; sensor fault, and all tyres on the other display, the one above the centre vents showed no tyres's at all....

Anyway, I disconnected the battery left it for a couple of minutes, then reconnected it.. and went on another drive..

When you disconnect the battery the tyre pressure starts from scratch, you get the 'tyre pressure montor ok' but you still don't get the pressures...

I kept driving and checked my mileage, I did not switch the car off at all. When I done about 15 miles 9 of which was on the motorway the left rear pressure was showing only and gradually all pressures started showing up slowly one by one in the space of about 30 seconds. Bingo.. sorted..

I hope this helps some of you out as I know tyre pressure monitor can be a pain but if it works its very handy especially if you are on the motorway..

Hope this helps
