as a fairly new member in the Uk I have an Evora and have had a new tyre fitted, however when fitted the new tyre kept slowly going flat, so i took it back in and then told me I need a new sensor, Having looked at the sensor I am guessing then over tightened the screw, but whatever i still need a new sensor, does anyone know when you get a new sensor, does it automatically link up to your cars internal dash system or do you have to sync them?

any help much appreciated:rolleyes:

It looks like they will automatically sync..

Lotus Service Notes Section GJ

When removing or replacing a tyre, be aware that the tyre valve includes a pressure transducer and should not be discarded. Take care not to damage the sensor with the tyre bead or tools. If a fault is indicated after wheel or tyre replacement, it is likely that a sensor has been incorrectly fitted or damaged.

If a tyre valve/sensor is renewed, or is moved to a different wheel position, the TPMS will automatically identify the new configuration by interpreting signal strength as distance from sensor to receiver.

Note that the pressure sensors are powered by integral batteries, with an average service life of 10 years. It is recommended to renew all pressure sensors at this time interval.

TPMS fault codes
On detection of a fault, the TPMS integrated diagnostics will set an appropriate code which may be read using the Lotus Techcentre:

C0550 TPMS ECU Failure
C0551 TPMS Module not programmed with Vehicle Configuration
C0558 TPMS Vehicle Sensor ID's not programmed
C075A TPMS Pressure Sensor LF Malfunction / Battery Low / Broken Shock Sensor
C075B TPMS Pressure Sensor RF Malfunction / Battery Low / Broken Shock Sensor
C075C TPMS Pressure Sensor LR Malfunction / Battery Low / Broken Shock Sensor
C075D TPMS Pressure Sensor RR Malfunction / Battery Low / Broken Shock Sensor
C0777 TPMS Sensor Autolocation Failed
C0800 TPMS Module Supply Voltage Below 9V / Above 18V
U2103 TPMS Communications Malfunction

In the first instance, the car should be driven gently at 40 mph in order to optimise conditions for sensor recognition. If the fault persists, the following action should be considered:

550/551/558 – most likely a TPMS module problem; renew
75A/B/C/D – most likely a pressure sensor; renew
777 – Most likely the module but could be a rogue sensor
800 – Check supply voltage and ground connection
U2103 – Could be module, CAN cable connection or engine T4e controller
