About EL-50448 Reviews

EL-50448 Reviews:

1.works on truck and car: Simple and inexpensive but works great. Much better than going to the dealer or a tire store just to get your pressure sensors reset. I used it on my truck and my wife's car and it only took a few minutes to reset all four wheels on each.

2. with correct low battery display: I've never been able to get my TP sensors to program using the "let air out" method on my 2007 Tahoe. Before I had this tool, I would just remember which tires were which when I rotated them, but no longer. Now, I can reprogram them in just a few seconds and the dash display correctly indicates which tire is low. This tool should have come with the vehicle.

3. Easy to use: The operation of this product is simple and straightforward. As stated it's hard to get excited about spending this amount of money just to rotate tires, but considering what dealers would charge, it would not take many trips service visits to pay for the unit. As far as working it does exactly what it says it will do with no drama. Put the vehicle in reset mode and push the button on the unit following directions outlined in the car owners manual.

4. I could not believe I needed a special tool to rotate my tires. From what I understand 2010 (2011?) and older vehicles, you can use any big magnet to reset your Tire Pressure Sensors. 2011 (2012?) and up to at least my 2013 Silverado, you need one of these gizmos. This one works like a champ, and is the one I found referenced through a GM website.

5. Wide GM vehicle coverage: The deflate method is verified ok only on Chevrolet Volt 2011 year, with the El-50448 TPMS relearn tool, I could get the 4 TPMS programmed in less than one minute. El-50448 could program TPMS on GM 2010-2013 year.

6.Worked great for my 2007 Nissan Frontier. Once I put the TPMS in learned mode (used the paper clip method). I used the EL-50448 by pressing the button while holding next to the air stem of the tire. The reset tool’s green light will rapidly blink for a few seconds and then my truck's blinker would signal it was completed for that tire. Did this for all 4 tires in the order of: Driver front, passenger front, passenger rear, driver rear. The entire process took maybe 5 min.
If the tool's green light isn't rapidly blinking switch out the 9v battery. I had, what I thought was a new battery, it was able to give a solid green light when I pressed the button, but not strong enough to trip the low battery light.
