ATEQ Provides TPMS Help With How-To Video

Posted on October 9, 2017

ATEQ TPMS Tools LC has released a new training video on how to perform a stationary tire pressure monitoring system (TPMS) relearn procedure on a 2011 Ford Fusion.

The video shows the procedure when using the ATEQ VT56 TPMS tool.

A stationary relearn procedure, also referred to a manual relearn procedure, allows new TPMS sensor IDs to be transferred to the vehicle’s ECU without driving a vehicle. This type of relearn procedure requires a TPMS activation tool to trigger the sensors when the vehicle is in learn mode either by using a TPMS diagnostic tool or diagnostic scan tool. The vehicle then uses an RF signal to communicate with the vehicle’s ECU to establish which sensor is in which specific location.

The VT56 TPMS tool displays the step-by-step information on how to communicate the TPMS sensor information to the vehicle’s ECU. Once the steps are performed with the VT56, the ECU will recognize the sensor IDs.
