Why can’t I activate the TPMS sensors?

  1. Ensure your tool has the latest software.
  2. Ensure that the vehicle uses Direct TPMS.
  3. Make sure you have selected the right model year
  4. If more than one frequency type is listed for the vehicle, try both listings.
  5. The sensor may be damaged or its battery dead. In either case, the sensor will need to be replaced.
  6. If your vehicle’s production month is on the border of two model year listings, try both listings.
  7. A vehicle manufacturer might use different sensor manufacturers on the same model during the same production time, such as in this example, BMW 2 Series (VDO) 2014/03-2016/12 433MHz and BMW 2 Series (HUF) 2014/01-2014/12 433MHz. You may need to try both listings.
