What does the TPMS dashboard light/warning indicate?
The light will illuminate when a tyre is low, and should eventually go out after a tyre has been inflated to its recommended pressure according to the vehicle’s door placard. After starting a vehicle, a TPMS icon will turn on for a few seconds, however, if it stays on, it indicates that one or more of the tyres on the vehicle is at least 25% below the recommended pressure. If the light flashes for approximately one to two minutes, it indicates there is a malfunction in the TPMS system.
There are numerous situations that can cause a TPMS warning light to come on or flash. Some TPMS problems include:
Sensor batteries may be dead
Valve itself may have physical damage, corrosion or missing components
The TPMS system voltage supply, wiring or internal electronics may not be functioning properly
The tyres were serviced or rotated and the relearn procedure was not properly performed
Facts about tyre pressure
A tyre “naturally” loses 0.2 atmosphere (2.9 PSI) every 3 months.
85% of all tyre blasts are preceded by a “slow” puncture or leak.
An underinflated tyre is not only dangerous because it can explode, it is also dangerous for the stability control and other safety systems of the vehicle, and penalizes the consumption and the total life of the tyre.
Steps to reset TPMS system
The proper steps to reset a TPMS system for a vehicle with direct-TPMS:
Use a TPMS diagnostic tool to trigger and read sensor information before working on vehicle
Perform service to vehicle’s wheels (air pressure adjustment, tire rotation, replace sensors, etc.)
After the service has been performed, use a TPMS diagnostic tool to perform the correct relearn procedure to reset the TPMS system
The proper steps to reset a TPMS system for a vehicle with indirect TPMS:
Perform the correct initialization procedure. This may require a TPMS diagnostic tool to find the steps involved to reset the system.
What does a TPMS activation tool actually trigger?
Users “trigger” or “decode” the TPMS sensor within the wheel. This TPMS sensor is not physically reachable since it is mounted inside the tyre. Therefore, decoding or triggering a sensor must be done wirelessly using a TPMS triggering tool.
Why does my workshop need a TPMS tool?
A TPMS tool is needed for the following:
Activate a newly mounted TPMS sensor
Reprogram the vehicle’s ECU so the vehicle recognizes the new sensor when tyres change order or are rotated, mount a new wheel to a vehicle, etc.
Send TPMS sensor information to the vehicle’s ECU after activating and receiving the TPMS sensor information
Why can’t my current TPMS tool trigger, activate or reset some sensors?
If your TPMS tool cannot activate or reset a sensor, we recommend updating your TPMS tool to include the latest TPMS sensors. With a growing TPMS market, new TPMS sensors are new to the market every day. VT56 engineers are hard at work to make sure all known TPMS sensors are compatible with the VT56 TPMS tools.
Upgradeable TPMS tools such as the VT56, are always compatible with the latest TPMS sensors released to the market.
