OE, universal, configurable and programmable TPMS sensors
Vehicles with direct-type TPMS systems are equipped with TPMS sensors. If a TPMS sensor is not working, it must be replaced before a relearn procedure can be performed. The damaged TPMS sensor can be replaced by an OE sensor or an aftermarket sensor.
There are different types of aftermarket TPMS sensors including universal, configurable and programmable sensors. OE sensors, universal and configurable sensors have new sensor ID’s already encoded within the sensor and need to be activated by using a TPMS diagnostic tool. Programmable TPMS sensors require a TPMS diagnostic tool to create new sensor ID’s or transfer sensor ID’s from the old sensor.
For multi-brand repair shops, a mix of universal sensors and OE sensors is often required. Our tools support the largest aftermarket sensor list on the market including, Alligator sens.it, BWD Standard OE and Standard QWIK, Continental REDI-Sensor, Dorman Direct Fit, Hamaton U-Pro, HUF IntelliSens, MOBILETRON, NAPA QWIK and OE Design, Orange Simple Sensor, Schrader EZ-sensor, SMP Standard OE and Standard QWIK and STEELMAN Select.
Some important features of the ATEQ VT56 and VT36 when working with TPMS sensors include:
Displays sensor data including sensor ID, psi, frequency, temperature and battery life (some sensors do not display temperature and battery life data)
Sensor part number lookup by vehicle make, model, year (MMY) selection
Program sensor by sensor or vehicle MMY selection
