Post by kingwoodshell »

Does anyone have a suggestion on a tool for diagnosing a TPMS light for Armadas. Heck how about any make at this point. Your input is appreciated.

Although I have no direct experience, I hear the Bartech 400 is a good tool.

Has anyone used the Mitchell 1 TPMS Guide. I've read a little up on this, but would like to know if anyone's used it [is it worth a look].

Of all places I saw it on Bartec's website. You can't access it but they reference the heck out of it. Here's the link:

Let me know what you find out.

i use the bartech. now it's just a triggering device that allows either the on board system to calibrate or allows you to diagnose a bad sensor. i am running into tire monitors that need to be reset through a scanner even though my repair programs tell me it needs to be driven to be rest. yesterday we had a 2007 murano. the programs said it had to be driven over a certain speed for a certain time. the tech did it twice and checked the spare and did it again. finally he decided to put the scan tool on it and see if he could reset it that way. another little glitch in some of these systems, at least what i've seen is since i'm near three major transmission towers i seem to have a bit of a difficult time at times :shock: resetting monitors that rely on radio transmissions. i've looked outside and on occasion see trunks pop up and alarms go off. they still try to say radio waves aren't dangerous. there was a lincoln owned by a person that worked across the street and we would see the trunk open during torrential rains and blizzards. it brightened my day.

Before you go crazy.... well some of you, check the owners manual for the reset proceedure. I found what was needed for a caddie in the customers owners manual, that was no where to be found in any of the tech references.

now back to to tool. make sure you get a tool which allows you to read battery condition of the sensor. Sealed internal battery in the sensors play games just like regular car batteries with the temp changes.

these are the after market sensors we use on the newer cars for people who have winter and summer wheels. I went to an open house and got to play with the tool. we went out to the parking lot and got real life scenearios. Not just predesigned displays.

I held out for a long time purchasing a tpms tool because there were too many options and I felt like the tool I bought would either be outdated or only do limited applications. I bought the Bartech 400 plus. Make sure it has the plus feature, this will do nissans and hyundais. I've been happy with the tool. It's slowly paying for itself. 9.95-35.00 at a time. When I'm running the counter, I charge customers pretty consistently and they are glad to pay when informed about how these systems work.

this is a prime example of keeping customer happy and in house. something as small as a low tire pressure light may loose or gain a customer. in today's market it doesn't take much to loose a customer. i had a person pull onto my lot with a low tire. we're off the beaten path so i don't see much of this. well out i went and added air to the tire. i noticed that there were no valve caps on the stems. i went to the tire machine and got 4 that were just laying there and put them on. the person was so thrilled that i would take the time to do that and couldn't believe that the shop that services her vehicle would leave them off. she asked for my card and is a somewhat regular customer now. it's always the little things. now, now tina don't go there. :lol:
