TPMS TOOLS FOR MINI VEHICLES
ATEQ TPMS workshop tools help garages and tire shops service their customers’ vehicles faster, better and more securely. ATEQ works closely with Mini and other brands in on the production line, in dealerships and workshops.
Our collaboration gives us access to the latest TPMS protocols as soon as a new vehicle is brought to the market.

WHICH DEVICE SHOULD I USE FOR MINI TPMS SYSTEMS?
All ATEQ tools are compatible with Mini original sensors. Many devices also program universal aftermarket sensors to be fitted in Mini vehicles. Choose the ATEQ VT36 tool if you require an activation tool for Mini sensors. To reset the Ford TPMS ECU, an OBDII capable tool such as the ATEQ VT56 is recommended.
|The ATEQ VT56 is the all-in-one comprehensive TPMS tool with coverage for all TPMS enabled vehicles in Europe, but also imported vehicles from America. It covers all Mini vehicles, as well as all other TPMS equipped passenger cars on the market. With its OBDII module and advanced features, the tool acts as a full diagnostic tool for all TPMS maintenance. It includes OBD relearn procedures for more than 50% of European light vehicles. Find out more about the ATEQ VT56 here.|
|ATEQ VT36 is a TPMS activation and programming tool with coverage for all Mini vehicles. Use the ATEQ VT36 TPMS tool to activate the Mini vehicle’s TPMS sensor for maintenance and TPMS relearn.|
When a Mini TPMS sensor is broken, or does not respond anymore, it is time to replace it. Go to the Part Number Lookup menu in the ATEQ TPMS tool menu, to find the right Original Equipment spare part replacement number for Mini. Another alternative is to programme a universal sensor. A TPMS programming tool such as the VT36, VT46 and the VT56 allows to programme over 10 brands of universal sensors. See this video about programming a TPMS sensor.
MINI vehicles use a DIRECT TPMS system. This system uses wireless TPMS sensors to directly measure air and temperature in the wheels and transmits the data to the car’s ECU. The advantage of the direct sensors is that it’s more accurate. The battery life of TPMS sensors is about 6-9 years depending on use. The relearn procedure for all Mini cars is Auto Relearn. However, Ateq has developed specific OBDII procedures for over 60% of Mini vehicles. These OBDII relearn procedures are available on the ATEQ VT56 TPMS tool for example. Find out more about the VT56.
The TPMS warning light will illuminate when a tire is low, and should eventually go out after a tire has been inflated to its recommended pressure according to the vehicle’s door placard. After starting a vehicle, a TPMS icon will turn on for a few seconds. However, if the light stays on, it indicates that one or more of the tires on the vehicle are at least 25% below the recommended pressure. If the light flashes for one to two minutes, it indicates there is a malfunction in the TPMS system. There are many situations that can cause a TPMS warning light to come on or flash.
One or more sensor batteries could be dead. The valve itself may have physical damage, corrosion or missing components or the TPMS system voltage supply, wiring or internal electronics may not be functioning properly. The tires were serviced or rotated and the relearn procedure was not properly performed. It is important to check the TPMS system before working on a customer’s vehicle. Using an ATEQ TPMS diagnostic tool, such as a VT56 or VT36.
