Watch: If your TPMS tools aren’t working, this is probably why

If your TPMS tools are malfunctioning, oftentimes the tool itself is just fine, but it’s the software that’s outdated.

TPMS tools are vital when it comes to the routine maintenance of any truck. But like all electronics, sometimes it just seems like there’s a ghost in the machine. When your TPMS tools start malfunctioning, is it time to invest in new ones? Or is there a better solution?

Oftentimes, the tool itself is just fine, but it’s the software that’s outdated. Outdated software is often confused with a malfunctioning sensor; however, the sensor is only as good as the software of the tool that triggers it. The good news is that this issue is completely manageable, and the fix is available right in your shop.
