Bartec's New Tech200Pro Tool Has Multiple Capabilities

Bartec USA LLC released the Tech200Pro, a diagnostic tool that incorporates TPMS sensor testing and activation, tread depth measurement and tire pressure checks, at the 2016 Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) Show.

The tire pressure monitoring system (TPMS) control unit in 2007 to 2013 Honda CR-Vs, like the 2011 above, monitors all four tires and the system itself. If it detects less than 24 psi in a tire, it alerts the driver by turning on the low pressure indicator and setting a diagnostic trouble code (DTC) in the control unit. When the tire pressure is increased to more than 28 psi and the vehicle is driven above 28 mph, the control unit will turn off the indicators and store the DTC(s).
