Anyone know the differences between the VE to VF MY16 TPM sensors vs the VF MY17 ones? The MY17 ones have a different part number and look different but both seem to operate at 433mhz. I was wondering if these newer ones can be used in earlier MY's? I'm planning on getting TPMS programmed into my car MY16 Redline. Anyone used these new ones in their car?
Cheers

Hey Dan, if they operate at 433MHz, they should work fine.
New part number may relate to a different supplier, or may be an 'assy' number with the MY17 all metal valve stems.

Did you get rid of the VE?

They look completely different, just wasn't sure if they would be compatible with the system.
Yeah I traded it in a few months a go on a Slipstream blue Redline, haven't looked back !

Theres a couple of places that do it in Victoria, not going with the hassle of trying to get Holden to do it.
I think a member on here, TazzI does it over your way.

Thanks, yes Tazzl does it over here but he needs the bcm etc pulled out of the car and sent to him he tells me.
I can’t live without my car and I really would like a drive in drive out service if possible.
Would be keen on the tpms and the flappy paddle flash.

Who are the two places in Victoria? I know one, but I was wondering who the other is.

LSX in Ballarat area & JSB performance I think in Pakenham? Although messaged JSB twice and no response so going to travel to LSX.

Thanks for the reply. I was aware that JHP fit a tpms but I wasn't aware that the other two companies also fit them. Coincidentally I'm in Ballarat at the moment so I might look in to LSX.

Does anyone know if JSB Performance in Officer VIC is still open? No response to phone calls, texts, or emails.

I didn’t know the MY16 Redline does not have TMPS included.

So if one updated their BMC to include TPMS and Paddles, does this mean if Holden service connect your car to their diag system to update vehicle software, they can wipe your added features?

Does anyone have an outline how the features are updated/added to BMC?

Guess it’s the same sort of issue with engine and trans tune s/w updates, can these also be wiped by service?

I take what I said back (how embarassment!). Got thru to Jeremy at JSB Performance (Officer VIC) today. Still does TPMS programming if you supply the sensors. I got car booked in next week yay!

For the benefit of anyone interested in getting TPMS fitted, below (in no particular order of preference) are the places that I’ve found who can/will do it. It involves specific custom programming of the BCM and dash cluster.

JSB Performance, Officer VIC:
As I said above, JSB will do it for $250 (sensors not supplied). I’m not sure if that includes fitting of sensors, but I assume not.

Ultimate Conversion Wiring, Wilberforce NSW (i.e. North Western Sydney):
I spoke with Justin today. He can also do it but he says it’s not his core business. He said he normally refers people to JSB Performance. I’m not sure on his prices.

Envious Customs, Perth WA:
I haven’t asked them for prices, but their website indicates $660 including sensors. BCM and dash cluster need to be mailed in (i.e. mail order service, no fitting of sensors).

Lsxtreme, Ballarat VIC:
I was recently quoted $450 (supply own sensors). I didn’t ask what fitting sensors cost (assuming they can do it).

JHP, Melbourne VIC:
I was recently quoted $480 (supply own sensors). Fitting sensors if required $80. If they supply sensors, their website indicates $650 plus fitting if required.

I’m not out to promote anyone’s business, just trying to help other forum members who want TPMS in their VF.

Thanks for all the good information.

Do you know which sensors are required? Are they the same as used in the MY17?

AFAIK the VF series 2 sensors are different. I’m not sure in what way. Do a search for “VF TPMS” on ebay and you’ll see the different ones available. Looks like series 1 are blue whereas series 2 are black & different shape. Hopefully someone else on here can confirm...
