Hurrah, “Service TPMS” yellow screens no more!
No TPMS sensors fitted to the rims ?
This nasty yellow screen gets hold of your dashboard computer. A more convenient solution to the problem:
This simulator device makes the vehicle’s computer think it has pressure sensors on all wheels and everything is fine. As a consequence, the Service TPMS error and the accompanying “Christmas tree” lights that you experience will clear out leaving the dashboard just as it looks with the original tire pressure sensors (TPMS sensors) mounted on your Suzuki. No other wired connection to the vehicle aside from the 12 V input needed for this. The battery powered device does not require even that. 1, 2, 3 or 4 sensors can be simulated by the device.
The simulation is reversible – unplug the device and the yellow screen will show up again. This device will serve its purpose just fine for the entire life of the vehicle, for both summer and winter tires.
The device works with Suzuki vehicles manufactured after 2013 and sold in Europe. It is currently running fine on a couple hundred of various vehicles:
models, and it should also work with all other models that are using the transmitter model S180052024. Those other models are Alto, Carry Van, Celerio, Grand Vitara, Kizashi, Splash, Fiat Sedici, Lada Kalina, Opel Agila; they are using the same TPMS sensors and may be well served by this device (according to this shop and this ebay store).
The permanent place of operation for the device is in the vehicle’s boot. The corded device needs a 12 V power outlet inside the boot, and costs 10 euros more due to more parts and labour involved. Otherwise the battery version will work just fine for a predicted 5 – 7.5 years of daily two hours driving, on all of the vehicles above, in most cases.
The batteries are replaceable (2 x AA). However, for prolonged periods of non-use and especially if the car sits under the scorching sun then there is the risk for them to leak. Since there is no ON/OFF button on the device there is also the inconvenience of screwing and unscrewing 4 screws twice an year for insulating the batteries from the circuitry (or pulling them out altogether). This does not happen all that often though; how many times did you find your spent remote control batteries having leaked ? Then again, remote controls are kept at room temperature.
Also, for those of you with a lot of really cold days throughout the winter: the alkaline chemistry is not suited for the job. They retain about 16% capacity at -17 C (0 F) and 66% at 0 C (32 F). Once the alkalines deplete either switch to the more costly lithium AA bateries – good down to -40 C ( -40 F); also they got a non leaky chemistry. Or go for the corded device.
As far as I know most New Vitara, all S-Cross and some New Jimny models have the 12 V power socket in the boot. Of course, you may install or already have installed a 12 V socket in the boot after purchasing the car.

Of course, you probably want the tire pressure sensors simulator device working with your Suzuki, so be sure to ask for help if need be. Please also be aware that this is not a plug & play device. A few steps are required in order for the device to calibrate and for the vehicle to learn it. Not hard, but just so you know. Find here the detailed setup instructions for the Iron Gates TPMS simulator module and at the beginning of this page the Demo video button.
This worked great on my 2016 ford grand c max. No more annoying TPMS light and was quick and easy to fit.
Wszystko ok. Działa w moim Suzuki Jimny perfekcyjnie. Obsługa klienta na najwyższym poziomie. Gorąco polecam.
Suzuki SX4 S-CROSS - 2019. - Uređaj radi super i bez problema, žute lampice pogašene 🙂 Prodavac predustretljiv i ljubazan, brz dogovor i realizacija. Topla preporuka!
Recomand. Eu am un Suzuki ignis 1.2 gt all grip model 2019.Am pus simulatorul în partea dreapta în cutia kitului de pana am urmat pașii de setare și de aproape 2 luni funcționează foarte bine nonstop. Nu L_am întrerupt. Menționez ca am unul pe baterii iar bateriile au fost noi la livrare
Am instalat simulatorul pe Suzuki Sx4 S-Cross 2019. A fost ușor de realizat și a durat 15 min. Simulatorul funcționează perfect, avertismentul galben ”Service TPMS” dispare și permite folosirea de roți fără senzori de presiune. Coletul conține și instrucțiuni, iar vânzătorul (inventatorul) dispozitivului poate fi contactat ușor. Mulțumesc! Recomand cu toată increderea!
Functioneaza perfect, recomand! Suzuki Vitara 2019. Nu a fost nevoie de nici un setup. Montat in portbagaj conform instructiunilor si mers constant vreo 3-4 km, dupa care martorul din bord s-a stins.
Great product, great seller communication. Corded device working excellent on my Vitara 2019. Highly recommended.
Suzuki s-cross 1.6, model ante-facelift, senzorii s-au configurat foarte usor, functioneaza fara probleme. Recomand cu incredere :).
Bardzo dobry kontakt i instrukcja uruchomienia urzadzenia,prosty montaż, bezproblemowe działanie i koniec problemu z komunikatem TPMS jak najbardziej polecam Tomasz z Polski-Vitara 2016
Great gadget! I confirm that the device perfectly works for Suzuki SX-4 S-Cross (Model 2018). The display is once again white!😉 I also take the opportunity to thank the owner! They were very prompt in responding to my inquiry emails. They also followed up (after shipping the item) to make sure I have received it and also to make sure it works! Great product, great price, great customer service! Thank you very much again!
Este un simulator care funcționează foarte bine și se calibreaza ușor. Recomand cu încredere. Eu dețin un Suzuki vitara passion 4*2.motor 1.4.
Merge perfect. Am un Vitara Passion 4x4 benzina 1.6. Recomand cu toata increderea. Nu incercati sa dati banii pe senzori inutili.
Folosesc simulatorul de aproape 2 luni si cu exceptia set-upului initial ( care a fost putin tricky) functioneaza minunat. Recomand cu incredere
