Just when service technicians thought the Snap-on® TPMS3 Tire Sensor System Tool was the highest performing TPMS tool on the market, the company says it got even better with a new software update, CS2-02-09.
“Our new software update for TPMS3 is loaded with the most current diagnostic capabilities specifically engineered to keep Snap-on customers at the top of their game with new vehicle models, relearn procedures and sensor information,” said Mike DeKeuster, product manager for Snap-on. “We are committed to keeping our customers at the forefront when it comes to technology and innovation, and the CS2-02-09 update will certainly help make Snap-on customers the leaders when it comes to TPMS service.”
The CS2-02-09 software update features many vehicles added to the database including GM®, Lexus®, Nissan®, Mitsubishi®, BMW® and the BMW® Mini Series. In addition, the update includes added multi-language relearn procedures for the European database, modifications to the relearn procedure for GM vehicles (model year 2011) and updates to the relearn procedure for the Chrysler® Jeep® Grand Cherokee® (model years 2001-2004), GM Tahoe®, Suburban®, Silverado® and Avalanche®, and the Honda® Goldwing (motorcycle). Honda relearn procedures were also added for new vehicles which use indirect TPMS.
Snap-on customers that own an existing TPMS3 tool that is registered and eligible for an update can dock the unit and administer through webTPM. If an updated software installation is required, customers can purchase the TPMS3U 2014 Software Update.
“The CS2-02-09 upgrade will also keep customers up-to-date with current updates on sensor information,” said DeKeuster. “For example, we improved sensor triggering for Volkswagen vehicles. In addition to this, we increased the vehicle coverage for many of the programmable sensors on TPMS3 tools that have the TPMS3PRG programmable option installed and a valid subscription.
“In addition to the enhancements to the TPMS3PRG there is a continuation of full compatibility with the TPMS3 on both OE sensors and the pre-programmed VDO REDI-Sensor. The TPMS3PRG is not required for the REDI-sensor as it is preprogrammed at the factory.”
