Autodiagnos TPMS D for service, diagnostics handles all OE sensors, along with 20 aftermarket brands, and relearns most TPMS compliant vehicles

Continental now offers the Autodiagnos TPMS D Tool, which allows shops and technicians to meet their customers’ TPMS diagnostic and tire service needs quickly and easily.

Designed to maximize a shop’s overall efficiency on TPMS service, this tool works with 100% of OE sensors, and sensors from 20 different aftermarket brands, the company said. It can perform relearns on 98.6% of all domestic, European, and Asian TPMS compliant vehicles.

Designed to accommodate shops of all sizes, Autodiagnos TPMS D is a good choice for shops that only require a single tool for their TPMS service and diagnostic needs. It can read and clear TPMS codes and has a built-in VIN scanner for faster Make/Model/Year lookups. The tool can also program sensors from historical data and features an OBD2 mode that can relearn sensors to the vehicle in under two minutes.

Autodiagnos TPMS D features intuitive, easy-to-use Continental-specific software and can connect via Wi-Fi for software updates and downloads of the latest vehicle applications. It can also be updated using a PC-based update manager.

Autodiagnos TPMS D now is equipped with ‘Live Sensor’ capabilities. This allows the shop to easily access and upload interim releases between the regular quarterly updates to ensure that the tool is equipped with the latest sensor information, vehicle data, procedural updates, and/or refinements to address reported “bugs.”

Continental’s new TPMS tool features a graphical user interface that makes it easier to use in a variety of lighting conditions, including direct sunlight. Tool flow supports the shop’s repair process and allows TPMS and tire service functions to be accessed from the main screen without requiring vehicle specific configurations where applicable.

The TPMS D tool can also be coupled with the optional Autodiagnos TPMS Tire Tread Depth Gauge, which provides tire tread depth measurements that can be used to determine tire condition and help to boost tire, suspension, and front end/steering component sales and service.

“In addition to the Autodiagnos TPMS D, the Continental range of TPMS tools includes the Autodiagnos TPMS SE, which is designed for fast and easy TPMS and tire service and is ideal for shops with multiple bays where more than one tool may be needed,” said Paul Schriro, product manager for aftermarket diagnostics in North America at Continental Commercial Vehicles and Services. “Both Autodiagnos TPMS D and TPMS SE are backed by Continental’s pioneering leadership and OEM expertise in TPMS technology.”
