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


directly to retrieve the sensor id


then program to the MX-sensor


Method 2:

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


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



and retrieve the sensor id from the car system



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


Method 3:

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



then program it to the MX-sensor


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
