The tyre sensor has failed on one of the wheels so I get a fault warning message. An Aston dealer wants £700+ to replace batteries on all four wheels as the batteries only last 8 years. There is no fault with the tyres. Can the faulty warning be turned off or can the batteries be replaced cheaper than £700!

Aston Installations can do this for a shed load less - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NE4QlYhYi6o
Contact James Hawkes Reed from Aston Installations. I don't know the price they are doing this stuff for, mine was the first and included the cameras and other gizmos.

That only works on the early Smartire system (with the box under the dash), I'm pretty sure all V12s have the newer setup.

You can get aftermarket ones for about £60 each from a specialist.

Access the parts as cheap as possible:

and only replace the one that has failed and get anyone to do it who won't trash your rim and has a sensible labour rate. £700 is for people with full wallets where their brains should be - wtf?!

Got in touch with Redpants-thanks he recommended Aston Installations-thanks. Bought the ‘defeat’ TPMS fix. £29. Mine is the older tire smart system. Thanks all, hopefully problem fixed and £670 better off.

Are these a direct replacement for a 2009 DB9? I haven't had a problem but thinking about wheel colour change options and sensor will need to be removed.

No.
It's only for 2010-5 cars on, with the four pressions indicators on dashboard.
You have the earlier "Smartyre" version,
Get in touch with Redpants. ...

I have bought some new wheels for my 2018 V12 Vantage. Anyone know what sensors I can buy and fit without parting with £800?

In case anyone is worried.

I ordered these, they arrived quickly, took 30 seconds to bolt each one on.

New tyres on and within 30 seconds of being on the car it picked them up and they work perfectly.

Recommend.

Thanks for reporting, hopefully it will be the same on my 2011 N420.

Phil, are you trying to put those on a DBS given your nickname?

I have not bought those yet, but wanted to. I know that you need a short drive to have them register with the Huf/Beru system. And I also know that US and Europe are using different frequencies, 315 and 433 Mhz accordingly.

Mine are 433 if that helps and I am in Europe - for now at least ;-)

I fitted the new wheels (changed to the AMR ones and didn't want to pay £200 a corner for TPMS), left the old sensors in the old wheels, screwed in these to the AMR wheels, had the tyres swapped then put wheels on car, started her up. After 3 minutes of sat there not moving she had the pressures, no warning lights.

Only drove 2 miles afterwards but no issues.

Hopefully this persists.

Here is the obligatory picture (sorry tyres not yet cleaned and car dirty)



Was going to find some black wheel nuts but I think the chrome looks good as is.

They look very good, I would keep the chrome nuts too!

Thank you for reporting, I will probably try those sensors too, in black since there is the option and I have the diamond/black N420 wheels.

I wonder why Phil still has errors though, maybe the DBS is a bit different? On the other hand I don't see Aston Martin developing two different TPMS systems...
