The RRS1 system is pretty usless really, just as well off getting a decent aftermarket setup.

Cheers

Cheers Col, any suggestions?

Do the RRS1's have it programmed in, its just a case of adding the monitors?

Cheers,

Pete.

All the factory system does is flash a amber warning light on the dash indicating which wheel/tyre is low and only then if the pressure drops by around 25%. thats about it, it does nothing else.

I’ve done a retro fit to my car, sensors are about £20 each and fit to the liner, receiver is about £20 to £30 and fits in the overhead console. Wiring is all present but either tied back or is plugged into a stowage. CCF edit can be a mare as there’s so many options and wheel sender units are a nightmare to. I still haven’t got it working properly, i.e. the car part of the system is fine but has a fault as it appears to be not communicating with the wheel senders. 2012MY RRS 5.0 Supercharged Autobiography (Current)

Is it just the warning you get not actual pressure readings? RRS1 3.0L SDV6 MY2013 L320 Autobiography in Baltic Blue

Yep, no readings, just Tyre pressure monitoring available when you start the car and then a warning if a tyre pressure drops. I don’t know if it tells you which tyre but it should have that ability. I did think about retrofitting the 2014 disco 4 cluster which has the later EU legal requirement of readings however when I delved into it, I would have had to do a lot of work with the software to make it work. 2012MY RRS 5.0 Supercharged Autobiography (Current)

As I've said before all it does is flash a yellow warning and which wheel i.e. n/s/f, o/s/r etc. on the dash, that is it's total capabilities, no pressures, no temps even then on mine the pressure of the tyre will have to drop to around 25psi before you get any warning. If the ambient air temperature is high that also sets off false warnings. At best it could be described "better than nothing" just, taking into account it was nearly a £400.00 option one would have thought it would do a little more than that. Forgot to say it does say if set to light or heavy load when doing system check.

Cheers

Well it stopped again yesterday. The system appears to work so not a loose wire. It just appears to lose comms. 2012MY RRS 5.0 Supercharged Autobiography (Current)

Could try this, only listed at 1p on Amazon proably more reliable than the L/R system. Laughing
