How to repair Range Rover TPMS with Autel Sensors

Background:
The car has a tire pressure monitoring system (TPMS) and 5 sensors (4 wheels + spare). In October, messages about pressure testing in all tires began to appear on the dashboard with the indicator on fire, then these messages disappeared and the indicator went out. Reading errors through SDD did not give a result (no errors). The system is extremely simple 4 antennas and 1 unit (located in the rear right sidewall). Having called the antenna to break the short circuit, I found out that everything is fine with them. The block itself remained in question. After conducting a study (a series of tests to check the performance), it turned out that the unit responds to a decrease in pressure in the wheels but forgets these values. After opening the unit, he discovered that he turned green, cleaned it, put it in its place … the module’s working capacity did not return.

replacement (new unit at the top)
Changed new module in places, diagnosed using SDD (read module, initialized new unit). When the unit was initialized, the program asked either to enter the 8-digit codes of all 5 wheels or drive for 15 minutes and then install the spare wheel instead of standing on the car. For me it seemed difficult, so I started the auto display, there are no messages, I was glad and went home. After 15 minutes of movement, a system failure message popped up, after reading the errors, found that there was no response from all 4 new AUTEL MX-sensors. It turns out the sensors are sold asleep and are programmed for a specific make model and year of the car at atmospheric pressure (if installed on the car, it should be lowered). It is necessary to find a person with a device for programming or buy a Autel MaxiTPMS pad to program by yourself.

How to Install and Program Autel TPMS MX-Sensors to Mazda

This problem is familiar to many owners of new cars equipped with a regular tire pressure monitoring system – TPMS . Battery life in the sensors of the system is about 5-7 years . Therefore, if your car is older, then this problem will either annoy you or start annoying soon.
When the system cannot find a sensor in the wheel, it happily notifies about this by a flashing indicator on the dashboard:
install-autel-tpms-sensor-0
It is not surprising if we recall the battery life of 5-7 years: the sensors I bought were obviously older.
Began to look for alternatives to native sensors, only new ones.  But then I found a solution that I liked right away: universal programmable sensors.
These sensors pretend to be regular, and the car sees them as original.
Their cost is low compared to the original.
Their essence is that you can sew up any ID and algorithm of operation for any car with regular tpms into this sensor.
The restriction is only in frequency, because for American vehicles tpms works at a frequency of 315 MHz, and for all others – 433 MHz. The choice fell on the Autel tech – it produces a bunch of equipment for auto diagnostics, including tpms universal sensors.
Since I have an American model Mazda, a set of sensors to 315MHz and programmer for them was purchased (it is universal, have both 315, and 433)
You need:
Sensors The Autel MX Sensor 315mhz – 4pcs
programmer Autel MaxiTPMS Pad
Here is a list of supported cars, it is very extensive : www.maxitpms.com/getCoverage.jspx
install-autel-tpms-sensor-1
A few comparative photos with dead original sensors:
install-autel-tpms-sensor-2
Above: original sensor. Bottom: Autel MX-sensor

orig sensor
install-autel-tpms-sensor-4
Autel MX 315mhz
Install the tpms software for the programmer TPMS PAD
install-autel-tpms-sensor-5
It is necessary to choose a car, model, year.
And further 3 options:
1) test – read data from sensors – go, pressure, temperature charge (if available). You can read not only Autel sensors, but also standard, OEM sensors in wheels! For example, in order to view the ID of the standard sensors or look at the charge level (not all OEM sensors support this)
2) clone regular. If there is a set of live native sensors, then clones can be made – for a winter set of wheels, for example, then you will not have to reassign the sensors to the car.
3) generate new IDs – then the car will require you to attach new sensors – on most cars this procedure happens automatically, you have to go a little and the car will determine everything itself.
Since I didn’t have my own registered sensors from the car, my third option is to generate new ones.
Put Autel MX-sensors into car
install-autel-tpms-sensor-6
I drove to the office and smart guys help install the sensors
install-autel-tpms-sensor-7
In an hour and a half, slowly put all 4 sensors and reinstall the wheels:
install-autel-tpms-sensor-8
install-autel-tpms-sensor-9
New sensors for 15g are lighter than standard ones, so everything was installed perfectly.
There is an instruction on how to register new sensors, there is a whole procedure there.
install-autel-tpms-sensor-10
Some time later, ObdLink + Forscan connected, saw that the car sees new sensors, 4 pressures and 4 temperatures. By the way, only FORScan sees, in addition to the control modules of the motor, also tpms, abs, dsc, srs, electric booster, etc.
install-autel-tpms-sensor-11
Wheels pumped up to 2.6, the lamp went out.
The system works!)
install-autel-tpms-sensor-12
install-autel-tpms-sensor-13
In fact, this scanner can read sensors right on the machine!

How to Tell ELM327 Code Scanner Hardware V1.5 and V2.1

Let’s start with the fact that you do not visually distinguish between two versions of the adapter.

Differences between ELM327 adapters version 1.5 and 2.1
Their differences lie in different microcontrollers and their firmware.

elm327-firmware-v15-1

elm327-firmware-v15-2

ELM327 v1.5 PCB display

elm327-firmware-v21-1

elm327-firmware-v21-2

ELM327 adapter version 2.1

Version 2.1 began to be released in 2014. We are talking about the Chinese version of the adapter ELM327. Adapters manufactured on the basis of the original Elmelectronics chip are very expensive for the average consumer (only version 2.1 chip costs $ 21). Unlike ELM327 v1.5 (v1.4), which are based on the “borrowed” firmware of the original ELM327 code reader, version 2.1 is a completely original development of the Chinese and has nothing in common with the original ELM327. These adapters were developed and tested, apparently, under Torque, Scanmaster, etc., with which they work satisfactorily.

Actually, why it does not work: firstly, it is not supported, or a number of AT-commands ELM327 are supported incorrectly. Secondly, in some places the adapter behaves just inadequately, for example, it does not return a response from the modules or partially returns it. How it looks to the user: the adapter finds the diagnostic program, but then either cannot connect to the car or identify it.

In an attempt to make their products cheaper, make them more compact, etc. Chinese developers sacrifice quality and reliability. At the same time, new adapters are tested on popular programs, such as Torque, with which problems usually do not arise, because OBDII protocol is simpler and adapter requirements are much less.

ELM327 Protocols

ELM327 adapter version 2.1 does not support or does not fully support the ISO9141-2 and ISO14230-4 (KWP2000) protocol, in most cases communication with the ECU is not established.

If the ATIB10, ATAL, ATSW00 commands receive the answers: “question mark (?)” (The ATIB10 should have the answer OK, and not the elm327 version of the adapter), then this adapter does not support non-standard protocols. If to connect to your computer (January, Mikas, Delphi … Auto: VAZs, Chery Tiggo, Nissan, Toyota JDM …) you need to register initialization lines, then you probably don’t install the connection using the elm327 version 2.1 adapter!

What version of ELM327 is needed

What conclusion can be drawn from the above and what recommendations?

If you have a car before 2005, VAZ, if you want to use some unapproved programs for diagnostics, or you need to register an initialization string to connect to your control unit, then it is better to buy an adapter with version 1.5.

If you have a modern car, not older than 10 years, you don’t know any initialization lines and you are not going to register, you will use common diagnostic programs, for example Torque, then you will most likely have an adapter with version 2.1.

Chevrolet Traverse LTZ 2012 TMPS Reset using EL-50448

Today, I’ll chip in words of experience of EL-50448 TPMS reset on my Traverse LTZ 2012.
TPMS Reset Tool:
el-50448-tpms-tool
Car: 2012 Chevrolet Traverse LTZ
TPMS: (this part for newbies only; skip this part if you’re experienced)
– what is TMPS & why do you reset TPMS?
The tire pressure monitor system (TPMS) of the Chevrolet Traverse, model years 2007 – 2013, alerts the driver when a large change in the pressure of one tire exists while the vehicle is being driven.
The system will also display individual tire pressures and their locations on the driver information center (DIC). The TPMS uses the engine control module (ECM), body control module (BCM), instrument panel cluster (IPC), DIC, remote control door lock receiver (RCDLR), a radio frequency (RF) transmitting pressure sensor in each wheel/tire assembly, and the serial data circuit to perform the system functions.
When the vehicle is stationary, the sensors go into stationary mode. In this mode, the sensors transmit once every 60 minutes to minimize sensor battery consumption. As vehicle speed increases, the sensors go into drive mode, in which they transmit once every 60 seconds.
NOTE: The sensor’s pressure accuracy is about 2 psi (14 kPa) at temperatures from 14 degrees Fahrenheit to 158 degrees F (-10 degrees Celsius to 70 degrees C). The RCDLR receives and translates the data contained in each sensor transmission, then sends the tire pressure and tire location data to the DIC. When the TPMS detects a significant loss or gain of tire pressure, a “CHECK TIRE PRESSURE” message will appear on the DIC, and the low tire pressure warning indicator is displayed on the IPC.
The RCDLR has the ability to detect malfunctions within the TPMS. Any malfunctions detected will cause the DIC to display a “SERVICE TIRE MONITOR” warning message.
– when do you reset TPMS?
When the TPMS detects a significant loss of tire pressure, the “CHECK TIRE PRESSURE” message is displayed on the DIC and the low tire pressure indicator is displayed on the instrument panel. Both the message and indicator can be cleared by adjusting the tires to their recommended pressures and driving the vehicle above 25 mph (40 km/h) for at least two minutes. If the warning indicators are still on or the display shows dashes instead of a value, there is a problem in the TPMS. The RCDLR has the ability to detect malfunctions within the TPMS.
Any malfunctions detected will cause the DIC to display a “SERVICE TIRE MONITOR” warning message. See appropriate manufacturer service information.
Review: how to reset TPMS with EL-50448
Remember when you could relearn the tire sensors with nothing more that the DIC and a user’s manual? Well, apparently GM decided that was too much freedom for the owner of one of their vehicles so what was their solution? Make it so the dealer would have to be consulted- and quite possibly for a fee. Well, my troubles are over! I used this on a 2012 Chevrolet Traverse LTZ and following the user’s manual, the horn beeped at the appropriate times and the tires were sensing in the proper position (as tested by releasing air to see a visible change in the DIC). This may seem trivial- until you have a small non-visible leak on a tire and right front is actually left rear!
This was my procedure for those who want to know, and as outlined by the user’s manual starting on page 10-46.
1. Set the parking brake.
2. Turn the ignition to the ON/RUN position with the engine off (the second click before the cranking spot but one click after the acc).
3. Press the Remote Keyless Entry (your key Fob) Transmitter’s LOCK and UNLOCK simultaneously for about five seconds. The horn will beep twice to signal the receiver is in relearn mode and TIRE LEARNING ACTIVE will be displayed on the DIC.
4. Start with the driver side front tire.
5. Place the relearn tool against the tire sidewall, near the valve stem. Then press the button of your very handy dandy VXScan EL-50448 (after you install a 9-volt battery of course) to activate the TPMS sensor. A horn beep confirms the sensor ID code has been matched to the tire and wheel position.
6. Proceed to the passenger side front tire and repeat the procedure in step 5.
7. Proceed to the passenger side rear tire and repeat the procedure in step 5.
8. Proceed to the driver side rear tire and repeat the procedure in step 5. The horn will beep two times to indicate the sensor ID code has been matched to the driver side rear tire and the TPMS sensor matching process is no longer active. The TIRE LEARNING ACTIVE message on the DIC goes off.
9. Turn the ignition to LOCK/OFF.
10. Set all four tires to the recommended air pressure levels as indicated on the Tire and Loading Information label.
11. Enjoy your liberation from the GM dealership!
