    If you have the tpms module, receivers and wheel sensors fitted then you can have it activated.

    As Nige says if your car didn't have TPMS factory fitted, then you will need to buy the TPMS module which fits in the boot, the receivers to receive the signal from the sensors and the sensors for the wheels, you will probably have to also retro fit a lot of the wiring as in most cars part if not all of the wiring is not there for it if it's not fitted at the factory.

    Once fitted it would all have to be activated with Tech 2.

    When its an option to activate in Tech2 won't say the modules and sensors are actually present. You'll have to check this first.
    module: right rear side beneath rear lights on te inside
    receivers on the left side into the front and rear wheelarches beyond the plastic cover
    sensors are inside the wheel

    there is a lot here to find about retrofitting tpms. Just search for tpms and you'll find pictures of te module, receivers and their locations.

    Also if your car is halfcan then you will need the halfcan kit which requires 4 receivers instead of the fullcan 2 receiver setup. The module and the wheel sensors are different as well. What month/year was your car made etc?

    according to his profile hes got an 08 sri,he will just need the 2 reciever system

    also the rear reciever wiring will have to be added aswell,if the body wiring aint present
    then that have to be added which is pretty easy really.
