Placard Adjustment

New “Placard value adjustment” coverage available for RAM, Jeep, Fiat, Alfa, Dodge, Chrysler, Smart and Toyota for select model years. 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 tire’s 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)
