Please don't let Swinton's comments stop you asking for advice and help. this is what the forum is all about helping other members when asked about passing on your own expertise knowledge to help others.
A lower form of bullying enough said me thinks
Wish you all the best pdman

Another thread this cost Swinton £40 resetting tpms he could have been told a monkey could even reset there tpms as thread has full info on how to do it and then when he had tyres changed cost more money for garage to sort it out
Link below



https://www.antaraownersclub.com/foru...242_page3.html


Tried that method to reset my front tpms.but did not work had to go to main dealers and get it done £40.
They said next time I change tyres check the pressure and then blow the new tyre to the same pressure as the one you have taken off .then the sensors don't think it's been off
2014 not work had to go to main dealers and get it done £40.

Whenever I have done a job like this the important aspects are getting comfortable (a garden kneeler makes a difference) and making sure the light to work by is good. Also, have the right screwdrivers to hand, take a photo before you disconnect anything and keep the diagram within easy reach. If you are in the Caravan Club the wiring diagram(s) is in the Members' Handbook. If you can wire a domestic 3-pin plug you should be able to do this; it just takes a bit longer. If you are red/green colour blind - and quite a few people are - ask someone to confirm the connections before you finish.

Hi Bigjohnsparky it is done and all working correctly, didn't update after certain comments as I didn't want to bore certain people, this monkey thanks everyone who gave advice, it's good too have a forum where a broad knowledge is passed around, roll on the good weather.
