TPMS Sensor Antenna

Recommended Posts

Does the 2007 Cayman S have 4 TPMS Sensor Antenna, one for each tire? Like many other owners

I have aftermarket wheels and rims in my 987 and I failed to have the TPMS sensors installed. I have

considered building a small transmitter that will generate the correct frequency to the TPMS Antenna.

This would turn off the annoying TPMS light on the dash.

Any thoughts?

Regards

I believe there is only one antenna on your Cayman, but the system is expecting to see signals from four transmitters, one in each of the wheels, so you would need multiple signal sources. Might be cheaper to just put the sensors in the tires.............

Noted in passing, with a caution because it would be defeating a Federally mandated safety system, which has lots of negative implications, but the TPMS system can be turned off; only no shop will do it (or explain how it is done) for liability reasons, which would also apply to the car's owner if they did it themselves.

There are 4 antenna's, one for each wheel - they are located behind the plastic wheel arch liner.

 

Any decent indépendant Porsche garage can turn it off.

Welcome to RennTech :welcome:

 

Unfortunately, your response is misleading.  Here, the potential liability issues with disabling Federally mandated safety systems is established "black letter law".  Shop owners like myself have been copiously warned about our liability exposure should we disable one of these system and the car is subsequently involved in a serious crash.  There are already cases where the shops have been sued by the very people that requested the system be disabled, and the shops were found liable due to "superior knowledge" of how these systems work and their potential for causing accidents.  And individual's that helped a friend disable them have also been held liable.  So I stand by my earlier comment; most (if not all) shops will not help in this effort.

I live in the UK - is sometimes done on request without issue.   TPMS was only recently mandated in Europe and the legislation is not retrospective so cars that have it fitted prior to this have it as an 'optional' rather than 'mandatory' feature.

Here they have been mandatory safety equipment for many years (since 2006).

      Hey folks,  I just bought a 2011 Cayenne S to replace my 2006.  Wow what a difference!  Anyways, the TPMS has 2 dead sensors.  What replacements works?  I can't seem to get a straight answer... looking for cost effective option.  What have you actually bought and used that actually works?  Model names, numbers etc... are appreciated
       
      Thanks.

      I purchased an '04 CTT about a year ago and have been slowly bringing the technology up to date (rear view camera, up-to-date stereo)...
       
      I am interested in adding TPMS, and there's one that is compatible with my Apple Carplay stereo:

      Was wondering if anyone else had success using something different.  There are plenty on eBay that use bluetooth and a simple Car-Lighter plug-in monitor (which would work for me as well):

      hi everyone, im being haunted with TPMS now. first problem is left side appear req??? if u check in tyre pressure, meter keep pop out TPC inactive, system learning. so below is what i have done;
       
      -check battery life, FR 0 month. i changed FR wheel sensor
      -after changed the sensor, i run about 5km (TPC inactive still pop out)
      -i diagnosed again n check battery life, RR 0 month then.. ****!
      -i dont believe the scanner, so i do system adaptation
      -problem still same, i then swap rear tyre.
      -scanner still show RR 0 month, i then swap TPMS rear antena
      -problem still same..now i dont know what to do.
       
      im wondering how TPMS get wheel electronic ID? i noticed 1 thing, first time i check the ID *******217 at FL, then today 217 at RL! anyone get the clue? i have running the car more than 20km but it still learning.

      I have an '08 Boxster S with 19" wheels.  I check my tire pressure with a gage every copule of weeks.  I have noticed that the tire pressure on the gage is always higher than what the TPMS reads.  I was concerned about this so I looked it up in the manual.  The manual points out that the recommended pressures are for cold tires at 68F and that tire pressure changes with temperature.  It then goes on to say that the TPMS takes into account the relationship between temperature and pressure.
       
      So does the TPMS tell you what the pressure in the tires would be if the temperature were 68F?  When it's 98F outside I don't care what the pressure would be if it were 68F, I care what the pressure is now.  I fill my rear tires to the recommended 36psi based on todays conditions.  Am I looking at this wrong?
