ATEQ Unveils New Relearn Technology for TPMS

Relearn procedures for direct TPMS systems include auto-relearn, stationary (sometimes called manual) and OBD. The steps are determined by the auto manufacturer and vary from vehicle to vehicle.

ATEQ recently unveiled new relearn technology for tire-pressure monitoring systems (TPMS).

ATEQ’s patented Sync-ID is designed to standardize the way TPMS sensor information is transmitted to the vehicle’s ECU, using a unique, OE-compliant OBD relearn procedure for all equipped light vehicles.

A TPMS relearn procedure is a set of instructions that must be followed to activate and confirm the TPMS communication from the TPMS sensor to a vehicle’s ECU. All vehicles equipped with TPMS sensors must perform a relearn procedure after a service has been performed to the TPMS system. For example: a relearn must be performed during a sensor replacement.

Relearn procedures for direct TPMS systems include auto-relearn, stationary (sometimes called manual) and OBD. The steps are determined by the auto manufacturer and vary from vehicle to vehicle.

With ATEQ’s new Sync-ID technology, technicians only need to learn how to perform one unique OBD relearn procedure for all vehicles with direct TPMS systems, rather than hundreds of different procedures. They can perform the relearn procedures in less than two minutes, according to

“With the new Sync-ID technology developing fast, soon over 90 percent of the cars serviced in automotive workshops can be relearned via OBD II with OE-compliant standards,” said Bruno Rousseau, ATEQ TPMS global director. “Our new patent makes our TPMS tools the most advanced in the world as well as the most valuable. Instead of making customers purchase new tools every few years, we are committed to improving the software of existing tools, to make sure customers are satisfied with what they’ve invested in. We are excited to give our customers the best coverage to make their jobs easier and faster for years to come.”

Sync-ID, which has been available on the VT56 TPMS tool since March, now includes OBD procedures for brands such as BMW, Jeep, Ford, Fiat, Chrysler, Alfa Romeo and others. Current and new VT56 tool users can get access to the new Sync-ID and hundreds of new OBD procedures by updating the tool’s software, according to ATEQ. Only a valid tool license is required.
