Autel MaxiTPMS TS601 and MaxiSys MS906TS Comparison

The purpose of the TPMS in vehicles is to warn drivers that at least one or more tires are significantly under-inflated, possibly creating unsafe driving conditions.
In low tire pressure condition, The TPMS indicator is a yellow symbol like this:
tpms-sign
Why TPMS becomes so important in the world?
Even now, a substantial number of vehicles hit the road each day with underinflated tires. However, proper tire maintenance with the aid of a TPMS can and does help prevent many serious accidents.
Then, in response to a surge in accidents due to underinflated tires, the US government passed the Transportation Recall Enhancement, Accountability, and Documentation (TREAD) Act. One of the outcomes of this legislation is that vehicles sold in the United States since 2007 must include TMPS of some kind.
Below are most powerful TPMS Diagnostic and Service Tools in today’s market.
First TPMS tool is Autel MaxiTPMS TS601
It can fully diagnose TPMS problem, activate TPMS sensors and reprogramming the vehicle’s ECU. By working with 433MHz/315MHz MX-Sensor, this combination can solve all TPMS problems.
Second TPMS tool is newest Autel MaxiSys MS906TS
The MS906TS has an all-in-one exceptional OE-Level functionality from OBDII diagnostics, ECU coding to complete TPMS service. With this, Now technicians don’t need a second TPMS tool to trigger, relearn, or program MX-Sensor. Quickly test all vehicle systems by touching 8.0” screen tablet of the MS906TS.

How to clone TPMS sensors via Autel MaxiTPMS TS601

There are 3 ways to clone a set of TMP sensors using Autel MaxiTPMS TS601 TMPS service tool scanner and a MX-sensor.

 

Method 1:

using TS601 to activate the broken OE sensor

autel-ts601-test-tmps-for-porsche-cayenne-2010-15

directly to retrieve the sensor id

autel-ts601-test-tmps-for-porsche-cayenne-2010-16

then program to the MX-sensor

autel-ts601-test-tmps-for-porsche-cayenne-2010-17

Method 2:

it’s used when the original sensor is not transmitting any more

autel-ts601-test-tmps-for-porsche-cayenne-2010-18

in this case, connect the MaxiTPMSTS601 scan tool to the vehicle by the TS601 OBDII cable

autel-ts601-test-tmps-for-porsche-cayenne-2010-19

autel-ts601-test-tmps-for-porsche-cayenne-2010-20

and retrieve the sensor id from the car system

autel-ts601-test-tmps-for-porsche-cayenne-2010-21

autel-ts601-test-tmps-for-porsche-cayenne-2010-22

unplug the TS601 from the car when learning is successful

insert the MX-sensor and program the copied id to the sensor to finish coding

autel-ts601-test-tmps-for-porsche-cayenne-2010-23

Method 3:

it’s to manually input the original sensor id to Autel TS601

autel-ts601-test-tmps-for-porsche-cayenne-2010-24

autel-ts601-test-tmps-for-porsche-cayenne-2010-25

then program it to the MX-sensor

autel-ts601-test-tmps-for-porsche-cayenne-2010-26

since the new sensors are programmed with the same original sensor id, install it in the same position on the wheel

no TPMS relearn procedure is needed after replacement

 

Enjoy!
