TPMS Manager includes the most accurate and up to date database of vehicle relearns in the industry. Multiple TPMS reset options are included for every vehicle, and troubleshooting documents provide help for those vehicles that can cause problems.

We also include many helpful visuals that guide technicians through the relearn process. For example, if a vehicle requires a push button for the relearn, we will show you an image of where that button is located. For the most difficult relearns, we even include a video demonstration of how the relearn procedure can be completed.

Background on TPMS Relearn and Reset Procedures

Each vehicle equipped with TPMS has a set of instructions that must be followed to activate and confirm the TPMS communication. This is known as the TPMS relearn procedure. These steps are set out by the auto manufacturer and vary from vehicle to vehicle.

In some cases the TPMS system will automatically relearn this process without additional steps. These types of relearn are known as “auto-relearn”, and are typically accomplished by activating the sensors and driving the vehicle. Other types of TPMS relearns include OBD II, which involves connecting a special TPMS scan tool to the vehicle ECU and entering the sensor information directly into the vehicle.

Knowing what to do is critical to safely returning the vehicle to the customer.

These required steps may change when a different TPMS system has been installed into a vehicle, such as when a programmable sensor is used.

TPMS MANAGER has a database of relearn procedures for 95% of direct TPMS equipped vehicles. Learn more about how we intelligently deliver this information in the following video.
