Customer Question

Hi, I would like to bring a 2013 GM350 Bluetec (Canadian Version) from Canada to California and register it here.In order to be compliant I have to convert the TPLS system to TPMS. Also, I need to fix the instrument cluster to show miles. I found all parts for the TPMS system, however, I don't know if the car has the TPMS wiring, or if the wiring also needs to be installed. Can you advise?

Let's stick with the current plan. I believe I was already charged $31. Would you please help me with my question?
Expert:  cloe0626 replied 2 years ago.

the car has the wiring so it will not have to be rewired just get the parts and you are good to go

Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Thank you. How about the instrument cluster - can it be adjusted to show miles, or do I need to replace it with a US version?
Expert:  cloe0626 replied 2 years ago.

it will have to be changed to a us version if you need anything else please let me know and be sure to rate my service when you get the chance

Can you give me the list of part numbers I need to get the TPMS system to work?
Expert:  cloe0626 replied 2 years ago.

i thought you had already found the parts

Customer: replied 2 years ago.
I thought so as well. I thought I need 4 tire pressure sensors, 4 antennas and TPMS control unit, but today the Mercedes dealer told me he cannot see in his system antennas, he can only get sensors and control unit. Can you confirm what parts are needed for the 2013 GL350 TPMS system? Once I buy them, the dealer told me that I can't return them.
Expert:  cloe0626 replied 2 years ago.

you will need the control unit pressure sensors you shouldnt need the antennas as i am not showing any for them either in my system

Customer: replied 2 years ago.
I bought the TPMS control unit. I'm going to Canada to see the car and install the TPMS control unit if the wiring is there. If all works OK, I'll let you know and close the case. Thank you!

I just came back from Canada. Unfortunately, after I paid to the Mercedes dealer in Toronto $172.89 to check the car for wiring, he confirmed that there is no wiring. Here is comment on the invoice: "inspected and could not find wiring for n88 tpms control unit, checked under vehicle, there is mounting bolts but no wiring, checked wis and data card, checked intranet and tips, no retrofit information given..."
