New video: How to program a blank sensor with the ATEQ VT56 TPMS tool

12.01.2017

Replace an old sensor by creating a new sensor ID using a blank aftermarket programmable sensor. Before servicing tires, trigger the vehicle’s sensors by Make, Model, Year selection or VIN scan. (VIN scan option available in North America only.) Triggering the vehicle’s sensors will allow you to identify damaged or defective sensors. If your tool fails to display the sensor information after trying to trigger the sensor, you will need to create a new sensor by selecting the vehicle’s Make, Model, Year or by sensor model. There are two ways to program a blank sensor with the ATEQ VT56.

Option 1, select by sensor manufacturer.

  • From the main menu, select program then select the programmable sensor model you are working with. (Note, ATEQ TPMS tools program ALL major aftermarket programmable sensor brands.)
  • Next, select the vehicle’s Make, Model, Year.
  • Select CREATE, press OK to create new sensor information.
  • Position the sensor in front of the tool’s antenna.
  • The sensor has been successfully programmed.

Option 2, select by vehicle Make, Model, Year.

  • From the main menu, select program, then select the vehicle’s Make, Model, Year.
  • Next, select the programmable sensor model you are working with. (Note, ATEQ TPMS tools program ALL major aftermarket programmable sensor brands.)
  • Select CREATE, press OK to create new sensor information.
  • Position the sensor in front of the tool’s antenna.
  • The sensor has been successfully programmed.
