2023 TPMS Programming Tool : Autel MaxiTPMS TS508WF
What is the TPMS TOOL?
The TPMS tool is a device that can be used to diagnose and repair vehicles with tire pressure monitoring system[TPMS] faults. The TPMS tool activates and detects TPMS sensors, communicates with the vehice’s on-borad computer system, and directs the necessary service actions.
What does a TPMS diagnostics tool do?
It resds/activates/re-learns all know sensors, privades 4MX-snesor programing methods, and resets tag values for supported vehicles. The Autel TS508WF displays the MX-sensor, re-learning program on the tool, including OBDII, and can proform key fob signal testing.
Can your relearn TPMS sensor without a scan tool?
No. Most vehicle require some type of “fixed” relearning procedure to reset the TPMS system. The TPMS tool Autel TS508WF can activate each tire pressure sensor in a specified order so that the TPMS control module can relearn their postion. That is fixed relearn, auto relearn, and OBD relearn. The TS508WF can write the sensor ID directly to ECU through OBD relearn.
What is the Autel TS508WF?
The Autel MaxiTPMS TS508WF is an upgraded version of the TS508, TS501, TS408 and TS401. TS508WF is a TPMS service tool designed to activate, relearn, program, and diagnose TPMS sensors. It is Autel's first non-tablet tool to provide Wi-Fi software updates. The Autel MaxiTPMS TS508WF features Wi-Fi software updates, making it convenient and easy to keep the tool up-to-date with the latest TPMS technology. The Autel MaxiTPMS TS508WF is a state-of-the-art TPMS diagnostic tool designed to activate, relearn, program, and diagnose TPMS sensors. The TS508WF can program Autel MX-sensors with both 315MHz and 433MHz frequencies to replace broken sensors. With its advanced features and capabilities, the Autel TS508WF is an ideal tool for TPMS diagnosis and maintenance, improving the safety and performance of vehicles on the road.
Compared to TS508 and TS501, Autel TS508WF adds Quick and Advance modes for that make TPMS maintenance faster, more professional and more comprehensive to meet difference needs, and add tire type/pressure selection to complete TPMS service.
Quick Mode & Advanced Mode
The Quick mode of the Autel MaxiTPMS TS508WF is designed to perform a fast activation and reading of TPMS sensors. In Quick mode, the tool can perform the following functions:
- Activating TPMS sensors - This feature helps to identify the location of each sensor and diagnose any issues.
- Reading sensor data - The tool can read and display sensor data, such as tire pressure, temperature, battery status, and sensor ID.
- Displaying TPMS system status - The tool can display the status of the TPMS system, including any fault codes that may be present.
- Retrieving TPMS system information - The tool can retrieve information about the vehicle's TPMS system, such as the type of sensors installed and their frequency.
The Autel TS508WF's Advanced Mode is designed to perform complete TPMS functions, including sensor check, TPMS diagnose, MX-Sensor program, and sensor position relearn. With Advanced Mode, the Autel MaxiTPMS TS508WF can perform more comprehensive TPMS services, making it a versatile and efficient tool for automotive professionals and enthusiasts.
In detail, the Autel TS508WF's Advanced Mode can perform the following functions:
Sensor Check - This feature helps to identify any issues with TPMS sensors, including missing or damaged sensors.
TPMS Diagnose - The tool can diagnose the health condition of the TPMS system, including identifying any fault codes that may be present.
MX-Sensor Program - The Autel TS508WF can program Autel MX-sensors, both 315MHz and 433MHz, to replace broken sensors.
TPMS Relearn - The tool can perform three ways of TPMS sensor relearning, including auto relearn, stationary relearn, and OBD relearn.
Sensor Position Relearn - The Autel MaxiTPMS TS508WF can relearn the sensor position to ensure the correct sensor is associated with the correct wheel.
Placard Value Resets - The tool can reset the placard value on supported vehicles, ensuring that the tire pressure is set correctly.
These functions make the Autel TS508WF's Advanced Mode ideal for comprehensive TPMS diagnosis and maintenance, ensuring that the TPMS system is functioning correctly and improving the safety and performance of the vehicle.
Cpmpared to TS408 and TS401, Autel TS508WF adds TPMS diagnostics to read and clear TPMS DTCs, adds OBD II connector to allow user to program sensor via “Copy through OBD” and relearn sensor via “OBD Relearn”.
TPMS Sensor Activation & TPMS Relearn Tool
The Autel TPMS Sensor Activation & TPMS Relearn Tool is a device used to activate and relearn tire pressure monitoring system (TPMS) sensors.
One of the key features of the Autel TS508WF is its TPMS relearn function. This function allows the tool to relearn the TPMS system after a tire rotation or replacement. The tool can communicate with the vehicle's TPMS system and reset the sensor IDs, ensuring that the system is working properly. The tool can activate TPMS sensors to diagnose issues such as sensor failure, low battery, and communication issues. It can also be used to relearn TPMS sensors after a tire rotation, tire replacement, or sensor replacement.
To use the tool, simply connect it to the vehicle's OBDII port and follow the on-screen instructions. The tool will communicate with the vehicle's TPMS system to activate the sensors or relearn them.
In addition, the Autel TS508WF can program Autel MX-Sensors, which are high-quality, programmable TPMS sensors. The tool offers four different programming modes, including Auto Create, Manual Create, Copy by OBD, and Copy by Activation, making it easy to program new sensors or replace faulty ones.
Auto Create - This mode is used to automatically create a new MX-Sensor ID. It is useful when replacing a sensor or installing new tires.
Manual Create - This mode is used to manually create a new MX-Sensor ID. It is useful when the sensor ID is not automatically created or needs to be manually input.
Copy by OBD - This mode is used to copy the sensor ID from the vehicle's OBDII system. It is useful when the original sensor ID is lost or damaged.
Copy by Activation - This mode is used to copy the sensor ID by activating the sensor. It is useful when the original sensor ID is lost or damaged and the OBDII system cannot be used.
The Autel TS508WF also offers advanced functions such as TPMS relearn, TPMS sensor activation, and TPMS sensor programming. It is a comprehensive TPMS tool that is essential for any mechanic or DIYer who wants to diagnose and fix TPMS issues quickly and easily.
