Mechatronics Engineer Congratulations!  Your peers have given you enough reputation to put you into the fist level!

Default TPMS4

I've read the PDF file regarding the TPMS4 but there is no information there to advise how long the battery in the TPMS4 works for or how long it actually takes to recharge it?

Anyone any ideas!

I think a true Mechatronics engineer would not be busting tires and changing TPMS sensors . He would be busy designing a leak free Mechatronics seal for BMW automatic transmissions that does not require valve body removal to change it . It would not have some goofey Siamese Hybrid plastic transmission pan and filter assembly that costs over $200 to buy sump filter. He would design a transmission that can go over 200 K on a regular over the counter Valvoline Max Life synthetic ATF that does not cost $25 a qt and would have a dipstick tube at least to add and check fluid from.

We wouldn't do any of that in this day and age, in the past we made components and systems and tested them to see how reliable we could make them, and if we wanted we could make a vehicle that never required attention, but the powers that be won't let us, so we are told nowadays go down there and see how the other half work, but not for your annual remuneration. At this time then I can see you don't know the answer to the question, so I'd better not get anymore technically detailed in the future then.
