vt56 vt36Livonia, Michigan:  ATEQ is proud to announce the new March software release for the VT56 and VT36 for the America’s region.

New version now available:

  • VT56 version DA1-29-14
  • VT36 version HA1-17-06


Placard Adjustment (VT56)

New “Placard value adjustment” feature available, coverage includes GM and Ford vehicles. This function allows users to adjust the standard placard value settings by transferring the new values to the vehicle’s ECU using an OBD module. This is used when changing tires to a different load index than OE tires, such as off-road tires, oversized tires, or low profile tires, to maintain the TPMS system in operation and avoid the TPMS warning light to show.

Instructions for placard adjustment:

  1. From the main menu, navigate to SERVICE TPMS
  2. Select the vehicle’s  MAKE, MODEL and YEAR
  3. Select the PLACARD icon
  4. Select OK after reading the disclosure to continue
  5. Connect the OBDII module to the tool, turn the ignition on
  6. Select the correct placard pressure according to the new tires specifications, starting with the front wheel axle (left front, right front tires)
  7. Connect the OBDII module to the vehicle’s DLC
  8. Select the green button to write the placard pressure to the vehicle’s ECU
  9. Continue step 6-8 for the back wheel axle (left rear, right rear tires)
