TPMS Sensors (in tyre)

Postby Escapable » Tue May 08, 2018 2:22 pm

Hey all,

It is about time that the batteries in the tyre sensors (TPMS) are failing.

Is anyone having or had any problems with the sensors in the tyres on their X200?

We want to hear what you discovered and how you dealt with these issues - please share.

I think you will find the batteries recharge through normal driving. Like the watches that never need a battery change, they just charge by the movement of the wheel. My x200 is 7 years old now and TPMS is still working fine. The couple of times i have had ro use a spare the sensor for the wheel that has been taken off works for a while until the battery runs out and then stops sending a signal but once its veen put back on and driven for a while it starts working again.
If thats the best you can do, than that will have to do. ;)

The battery is not rechargeable, It is a lithium button cell (VR2450).

There is no electronics to charge anything and the battery is not rechargeable.

These batteries should last somewhere into the life of the vehicle, however mine is NOT a battery fault although the battery is not in the best shape voltage wise) and the sensor itself has failed.
New sensors are not the problem but they have to be programmed to the vehicle so that the sensors "know" which tyre is fitted where.
