What are TPMS Relearn procedures ?
It is important to be aware of how your new TPMS will relearn and be accepted to your vehicle.
There are three types of TPMS relearn procedures:
1. Drive & Auto TPMS Relearn
Approximately 40% of vehicles can learn a single new ID and in some cases multiple new ID’s can be simultaneously auto relearned without the use of any tools. Some vehicles will require a specific drive time to extinguish the warning light or for the driver to reset via a procedure in the manual.
2. Stationary TPMS Relearn
Approximately 25% of vehicles require the use of an activation tool whilst the car is in relearn mode, and new ID’s can be programmed whilst the vehicle is stationary.
3. OBD Port – Activation / Scan Tool
Approximately 35% of vehicles will require either an activation tool in conjunction with a scan tool to program every new sensor. This will not require the vehicle to be driven.
