What are you using for TPMS?
I was wondering, what tool do you guys use for TPMS? I have an Autel TS408 and today I went through the 5th set of TPMS sensors and it can’t wake up any. At the beginning I thought it was the sensors but this being the fifth set I’m starting to wonder if there’s something wrong with the device itself. Some sensors, I mean, the ones on cars already, it can read perfectly. But these new ones they are just asleep and I haven’t found a way to wake them up. Do you guys have any suggestions? I’ve tried magnets, different positions, filling up air while trying to read ID and such with no success.
Autel ITS600 - so much better than the old autel TPMS units.
Same here. There was a bit of a learning curve to it, but I like it a lot better. I do wish it had better standby battery time though
Ateq vt36. Absolutely love it. It has the ability to unlock sensors.
We use the bartech. Can find them on promo with 50 or 100 rite sensors included
We have 3 bartecs now that we buy with the sensors. No issues with the sensors or the tool. We have been running into “ready to install” sensors that actually have to be programmed before installing, those tripped us up for a little bit until we tried programming them.
I use the Schrader tool with their EZ sensors. Very effective and low cost unit.
I have the TS408, no problems. Go to the settings menu on the device and check the market setting, select U.S. if it's not already selected. Have you updated it recently? maxitpms.com/tpmscms/regist…
Yes, I just had the same issue with mine. After an update the market setting changed and would not read any sensors. Changed market settings and all is well.
I’ve been using the Xtraseal smart sensor elite for a few years. Excellent tool, no problems so far.
That tool will only program autel sensors, you can get the mx-1 sensors which can be programmed to either frequency for $20 each
I have the snap on tpms3 and the Bartech tool. Both are excellent. On some of the jeep models you can use a regular scan tool and enter the ID number and it will pick it up. I think on the picture you provided it would be the number that start with OE37D.
We had a similar problem and it was that our tool, TS508, needed a software update. Once we updated the software the issue was resolved.
I‘ve had the same issue a couple of times. Once we needed to update the software. Another time it was changed to Europe instead of US market.
I have the Snap-On TPMS 3 - it is clunky but I have never had to send a vehicle away. I hear the 4 is better but I have not used it yet.
I'm going to give a different answer since I work on a fleet of Dodge Chargers and that sensor you have fits … Most of the time these sensor don't transmit till the have air pressure. After I can get the tool to read the ID I then program that # into the TPMS module with a scanner and clear all codes. Sometimes I don't program them at all and drive the car 2 - 4 miles and it learns…
