Group Defined Sub - Group Description Tool Required BEFORE application Tools Required for RELEARN
Direct Replacement These sensors are direct replacements for the those orignally fitted at the factory.  Direct Repleacement Sensors are typically a "PART FOR PART" fitment. One part number cross references to the OE fitted part number.  New OE part numbers requires new direct fit replacement part numbers. OE Dealer Parts Sensors purchased from OE Dealers, often OE Branded, and sold as direct fitment. NO YES
Aftermarket Replacement Parts Sensors sold in the aftermarket utilizing sensor part number cross reference data. Reference sensor manufacturer application data for proper fitment. NO YES
Multi-protocol These sensors are direct replacements for the original parts, except that one sensor contains "many protocols." In other words, fewer part numbers cover a wide range of OE part numbers.  New OE part numbers can either be a revision in application coverage, or sometimes a new part release. None Sensors sold in the aftermarket utilizing sensor part number cross reference data.  Because each sensor part number contains multiple protocols, fewer replacement parts are requires.  Reference sensor manufacturer application data for proper fitment. NO YES
Programmable These sensors require programming before installation. Programmable sensors typically have fewer part numbers and cover a wide range of OE part numbers.  Because they are programmable, they tend to offer latest coverage without part number supercession. Full Programmable Aftermarket replacement sensors that are fully programmable [protocol and ID] using an Low Frequency signal [LF] from a programming tool.  Typically very few part numbers are required to program a wide range of applications YES YES
ID Programmable Aftermarket replacement sensors that where only the ID can be programmed.  Typically there are a greater number of part numbers [by OE TPMS protocol]. A tool is used to program or copy the proper sensor ID. YES YES
Contact Programmable Aftermarket replacement sensors that are fully programmable [protocol and ID] using CONTACT PINS [as part of a programming tool]. Sensors can only be programmed outside of the wheel, take proper care to program them correctly BEFORE assembly or experience wasted time and effort. YES YES
