Ever wondered why your Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) is not functioning appropriately? One can find out the tire pressure sensor problem with the help of a TPMS tool. However, an outdated TPMS tool will not provide accurate results. That said, the TPMS tool will need constant updates to function accurately.
Here is a brief guide on the importance of TPMS tool updates and how to update it regularly.
Why Is The TPMS Tool Update Important?
A TPMS tool helps in relearning the tire pressure sensor. That said, it helps save mechanic’s costs as updated TPMS tools will relearn or reprogram the sensors properly. However, people tend to confuse outdated tool software with sensor problems.
Speaking of an outdated TPMS tool, the sensor works fine as long as the TPMS tool is updated. However, this issue can be solved. Repair shops or leading tire pressure sensor manufacturers can help manage this issue.
Moreover, a TPMS sensor is an essential safety feature. If TPMS does not function properly, it can raise safety concerns and compromise tire health and performance.
While some vehicles automatically relearn TPMS sensors, others require updated TPMS tools to relearn the sensor. Additionally, you need the TPMS tool update for the following reasons:
New updates allow the tool to completely read the TPMS sensors
The new TPMS tool updates will help reduce the time to reprogram/relearn/reset the tire pressure sensor
It will improve the sensor life and performance as new upgrades and quick reprogramming of sensors will help increase the tire pressure sensor\’s coverage
How To Update The TPMS Tool
TPMS tools are important for accurate working on the tire pressure sensors
With several types of TPMS sensors and tools available in the market, they all have different upgrade systems. While new TPMS tools can update themselves via WiFi, others require downloading the software and installing them using a computer.
However, the basic steps to update the TPMS tools remain the same. Let’s go through the step-by-step process to upgrade the software of the TPMS Tool.
Some TPMS tools need a software download, here’s how to update them:
- Download the software on your computer or laptop from the official website of the TPMS tool manufacturer.
- Press the update button on the TPMS tool without connecting it to the computer.
- Plug the tool into the computer and transfer the files.
- Reboot the TPMS tool and you will have an updated TPMS tool.
- Many new TPMS tools receive over-the-air updates via the internet
Many TPMS sensors need tools to update. However, some TPMS sensors by leading suppliers do not need an update from the tool. Manufacturers send updates directly to car computers and the TPMS and other sensors are updated instantly.
That wraps up our brief guide to TPMS tool updates. Besides, you can buy new TPMS sensors if they do not provide accurate results.
