my TPMS is intermittent, and I read that I might be able to enable the indirect TPMS used in later models, vs replacing TPMS modules inside the wheels.

tried to follow this info:

http://forums.tdiclub.com/showthread.php?p=4521091#post4521091

when i get into the long coding helper, I can find the specified bit/byte, which the helper says indicates TPMS not installed.

it will not let me implement the change. when I hit "do it" a window comes up to say there is an issue. do I need an authorization code to make this change?

for reference, here is a recent scan:

Although Ross-Tech would love to help you with this, giving you explicit instructions for disabling your existing sensor-based TPMS would be imprudent of us. You see the indirect TPMS that your car might be capable of obviously wasn't good enough to meet the FMVSS in 2009, 'cause if it was VW wouldn't have spent the dough on a sensor-based system.

Any thoughts on why it is good enough for the later model years?

and the point here is to get a reliable TPMS system.

Better algorithms -- much like when misfire detection became required in 1996 (in the US). The various car manufacturers dropped numerous powertrains with manual transmissions were a year or two because they algorithms in their ECUs were not good enough to meet the standards for misfire detection when the engine was hard-coupled to the wheels through a manual trans and clutch (something that's much less of a problem with the looser coupling you get with a slushbox). As the algorithms improved, MT powertrains made a come-back.

Your car came with a reliable TPMS system. It just has certain maintenance costs. Thank your nanny-state government for that; they're the ones who wrote the specs (over the objections of the auto-industry) that couldn't be met by an indirect system then. I fully understand what you want to do and why you want to do. In fact, it wouldn't bother me a bit if you disabled TPMS on your car entirely; I'm just not willing to put our (Ross-Tech's) livelihood at risk by providing support for things that put cars outside the FMVSS specs that they were built to.

Thanks for the responses.

it is just annoying. I do suspect a sensor is getting flaky, but the question is which one? it has been indicating false issues off and on for the past six months. (tires are properly inflated, dash indications and logs which indicate as the one posted earlier.) in this intermittent state, when it works, common tools (like whatever they have at the firestone place I let balance my wheels) do not see an error.

I know VW says to replace the TMPS sensors after 6 years. Put new tires on last summer, which would be the best time for a mass replacement.

The other motivation is that I am considering a set of winter wheels and snow-specific tires for the winter. plan would be to use such a set of winter tires not only on the 09, but also on an anticipated Golf Variant or whatever they call it, in another year or so. I guess a set of tires with TPMS sensors would work find on an indirect system.

It also is true that the direct system is more responsive than an indirect system. Mine told me on start-up that a tire was low. had picked up a screw in the tread, which was a slow leak and was under 20 psi. the indirect system would not have told me at a less-convenient location than my driveway to put the spare on.

Finally, while I provided the context, my original question was on operation of the VCDS software, the Long Coding helper.

Interesting point on algorithms. so are you suggesting that the software in the ABS module installed in my 09, but not used, is less capable than the one in later model years which do not have the direct TPMS?

Finally, while I provided the context, my original question was on operation of the VCDS software, the Long Coding helper.
You mean this?

when I hit "do it" a window comes up to say there is an issue.
It might be helpful if you told us exactly what that message says. ;)

Interesting point on algorithms. so are you suggesting that the software in the ABS module installed in my 09, but not used, is less capable than the one in later model years which do not have the direct TPMS?
Indeed, I am suggesting that's a strong possibility. It wouldn't surprise me if there were changes to the hardware of the modules too.

Mike,

It is entirely possible that this vehicle needs new TPMS sensor(s) based on age and battery life but if choose to diagnose that system the following tech tip may be helpful:

VW TPMS Systems without Wheel Position Recognition

Thanks, Dana,

This did the trick and let me identify which wheel has the problem. (had to wait for the light, which is on one day, off the next few)
