Q. Is the angle of the sensor adjustable?
A. The angle of the Clamp-in sensors can be adjusted to suit the rim style up to 40°.

Q. On starting the vehicle a TPMS light comes on, but switches of after driving for a short time, What could this mean?
A. This could be that one or more of your tyre pressures are close to the low-pressure threshold. Overnight when your tyres are cold, the pressure will be at its lowest, which can bring the pressure either close to or below the 20% minimum pressure allowance – switching the TPMS warning light on. Once you start driving however, your tyres will warm up and the pressure will subsequently increase; turning the warning light off. Check your tyre pressures before you drive to make sure they are at the correct pressure.

Q. Can the sensor cover all frequencies?
A. Yes, the Combi sensors are a hybrid of EU (433 MHz) and American/Asian (315 Mhz) applications.
