Continental has launched a redesigned website for its REDI-Sensor multi-application TPMS-sensor program.

The new website at

, features a wide range of TPMS training and educational resources for professional technicians and shops. It also introduces and showcases the next generation of REDI-Sensor TPMS sensors, which can replace more than 290 different OE sensors and provide coverage for more than 150 million VIO with only four sensors.

A key feature of the new REDI-Sensor site is the “Training Central” section, which houses a portfolio of training resources aimed at educating professional technicians on the latest TPMS knowledge and service techniques. The section includes signups for live webinars hosted by Continental’s own TIA-certified instructors and allows visitors to access previously held webinars on-demand.

Upcoming Webinars

Continental is hosting two upcoming live webinars on April 20 and April 27, which will focus on the new generation of REDI-Sensor TPMS sensors. The training webinars are open to all service pros and Training Central offers easy way to sign and participate at https://www.redi-sensor.com/trainingcentral/.

In addition to webinars, the section features a video series on TPMS Tech Tips, service tips for professionals, a TPMS FAQ section and information on the complete REDI-Sensor multi-application TPMS line.

The REDI-Sensor website provides an exceptional application lookup that makes it easier for technicians to quickly identify the right product for their TPMS needs. It uses a year/make/model search function to help determine the correct TPMS-sensor and service parts needed, while also providing the latest sensor installation and relearn instructions, service tips and how-to videos. A “Where to Buy” feature has been added to help shops find the best location to purchase the REDI-Sensor TPMS sensor and service parts they need.

The site also features a section for drivers that includes some everyday FAQs on TPMS, information on the importance of TPMS for driving safety and a blog with articles on TPMS, tire service and safety tips. The site was built with a responsive-first design template, allowing it to be easily accessed and navigated on mobile devices as well as laptop and desktop computers.

      I’m trying to find to which car do these aluminum trim plates belong to? They don’t have any number or information on the back so this makes really hard to find the car brand. They seem to be left and right pieces, I’m not sure about the placement on vehicle neither..

      The Automotive Aftermarket Suppliers Association (AASA), in coordination with several key suppliers, announced the launch of
      link hidden, please login to view, a website designed to help give parts professionals information and tips on how to identify and reduce fraudulent warranty claims.   It’s been estimated that fraudulent warranty returns cost auto parts stores more than $600 million annually. The items returned for credit include worn OE parts, bricks and other items meant to simply fill the box, as well as parts that were damaged during installation. As more high-tech sensors are sold and as the cost of auto parts continues to rise, it will become increasingly important to reduce fraudulent claims.  
      The website’s goal is to educate parts professionals on how to recognize and stop fraudulent returns, as well as provide a portal to report fraudulent returns. Parts professionals also can earn “Check the Part”-branded items for reporting examples of fraudulent claims through the submission portal. 
      A group of manufacturers created the Check the Part initiative to help the industry address this widespread problem. The committee is comprised of members from Standard Motor Products, Dorman Products, KYB, MPA, Mevotech, MotoRad of America and FDP Brakes. AASA and the Auto Care Association have endorsed Check the Part.  
      The website promotes three simple steps to help reduce fraudulent claims: 
      Open the box and confirm the part is the same type of part that is described on the box and paperwork. Confirm the brand of the part matches the brand on the box. If the part is brand new and was never installed, it can be returned, but it should not be processed as a warranty. Learn more about this initiative at

      Continental has introduced a new floor display as a part of its ClearContact commercial-duty wiper-blades program.
      The display can accommodate an assortment of up to 70 wiper blades that can be selected by the retailer or service facility. Continental will help customize a product mix that best fits the customer’s sales and applications needs.
      The ClearContact commercial-duty line includes 43 part numbers in lengths from 10 to 40 inches. The blades are specially engineered for commercial trucks, RVs, transit buses, school buses, motorcoaches and off-highway vehicles.
      “This high-impact display is an excellent sales tool for service centers, truck stops and parts retailers for commercial-duty vehicles and RVs,” said Laura Huerst, Continental product manager. “It features a very small footprint of 18 inches long by 18 inches wide by 63.5 inches high and the display header card includes a QR code that links directly to an application guide, allowing customers to find the exact blades they need. This gives retailers the ability to stock the wiper blades they sell most often, maximizing coverage with minimal inventory.”
      Continental’s ClearContact commercial-duty wiper blades are designed for a simple and fast installation and come with all the necessary hardware required to install. They feature a reinforced steel frame and precision-cut natural rubber wiper blade to ensure clear vision, edge-to-edge wiping and reliability in all weather conditions.

      In November 2020, Massachusetts voters overwhelmingly approved an update to the state’s landmark Right to Repair law, requiring automakers to provide a platform that enables motorists to access and control their vehicles’ telematics data.
      While the passage of Ballot Question 1 was a huge win for the automotive aftermarket, it’s unclear when the provisions of the legislation will see the light of day.
      After voters approved the ballot measure by a 75% to 25% margin, a coalition of automakers – the Alliance for Automotive Innovation – filed a lawsuit seeking to overturn the ballot question based on a litany of allegations, including cybersecurity concerns; insufficient time to comply with the new data-access requirements; and their contention that the ballot initiative is preempted by federal law.
      Over the past two years, the automakers have managed to keep the case tied up in court. Attorney General Maura Healey has idled the legislation until the lawsuit is resolved.
      Recently, it was reported that the Alliance for Automotive Innovation and the state attorney general’s office have submitted scheduling proposals for further proceedings in the litigation.
      In its proposal, the
      link hidden, please login to view states: “While it remains the plaintiff’s position that the OEMs cannot comply with the plain language of the Data Access Law without violating their safety obligations under the Vehicle Safety Act, plaintiff understood the court to request a more robust discussion of the statutory interpretation issues that hopefully could narrow areas of disagreement. We are not off to an encouraging start. Worse, the attorney general couples her reiterated interpretations with an accelerated schedule that will ensure this endeavor fails. The attorney general’s proposed schedule simply does not allow time for a deeper dive on these interpretation questions.” The alliance proposed being given until Sept. 22 to review and reply to the AG’s proposal with the hopes of conferring and submitting a single clarified document on or before Oct. 14.
      “It’s been nearly two years since the people of Massachusetts voiced their strong desire for more choice and competition when it comes to auto repairs,” Justin Rzepka, executive director of the CAR Coalition, said in response to the latest activity in the case. “As this case continues to drag on, Congress cannot wait – it must act on federal Right to Repair solutions, like the REPAIR and SMART Acts, to restore choice and empower businesses to service car owners that want options.”
      Meanwhile, in Washington, D.C., the Committee on Small Business Subcommittee on Underserved, Agricultural, and Rural Business Development will hold a
