Safety Information
For your own safety and the safety of others, and to prevent damage to the
device and vehicles upon which it is used, it is important that the safety
instructions herein presented throughout this manual be read and understood
by all persons operating, or coming into contact with, the device.
There are various procedures, techniques, tools, and parts for servicing
vehicles, as well as in the skill of the person doing the work. Because of the
vast number of test applications and variations in the products that can be
tested with this equipment, we cannot possibly anticipate or provide advice
or safety messages to cover every circumstance. It is the automotive
technician’s responsibility to be knowledgeable of the system being tested. It
is crucial to use proper service methods and test procedures. It is essential
to perform tests in an appropriate and acceptable manner that does not
endanger your safety, the safety of others in the work area, the device being
used, or the vehicle being tested.
Before using the device, always refer to and follow the safety messages and
applicable test procedures provided by the manufacturer of the vehicle or
equipment being tested. Use the device only as described in this manual.
Read, understand, and follow all safety messages and instructions in this
manual.
Safety Messages
Safety messages are provided to help prevent personal injury and equipment
damage. All safety messages are introduced by a signal word indicating the
hazard level.
DANGER
Indicates an imminently hazardous situation that, if not avoided, will result in
death or serious injury to the operator or to bystanders.
WARNING
Indicates a potentially hazardous situation that, if not avoided, could
result in death or serious injury to the operator or to bystanders.
ii
Safety Instructions
To prevent personal injury or damage to vehicles and/or the scan tool, read
this instruction manual first and observe the following safety precautions at a
minimum whenever working on a vehicle:

Always perform diagnosis or service in a safe environment.

Wear safety eye protection that meets ANSI standards.

Keep clothing, hair, hands, tools, test equipment, etc. away from all
moving or hot engine parts.

Operate the vehicle in a well-ventilated work area: Exhaust gases are
poisonous.

Put blocks in front of the drive wheels and never leave the vehicle
unattended while running tests.

Use extreme caution when working around the ignition coil, distributor
cap, ignition wires and spark plugs. These components create
hazardous voltages when the engine is running.

Keep a fire extinguisher suitable for gasoline / chemical / electrical fires
nearby.

Put the transmission in PARK (for automatic transmission) or NEUTRAL
(for manual transmission) and make sure the parking brake is engaged.

Always turn the ignition off before connecting/disconnecting the OBD II
Cable to/from the TPMS tool; otherwise it may cause the Malfunction
Indicator Light (MIL) to turn on.

Refer to the user’s manual for the vehicle being serviced and adhere to
all diagnostic procedures and precautions. Otherwise personal injury or
unneeded repairs may result.

Keep the TPMS tool dry, clean, free from oil, water and grease. Use a
mild detergent on a clean cloth to clean the outside of the TPMS tool
when necessary.

Programming Failed.
Press any button to continue.
By using Copy by OBD, the sensor ID that is retrieved from TPMS ECU is
programmed to the new MX-Sensor. There is no need to perform the Relearn
function to write the ID into the ECU when the new programmed sensor has
been put in the same position. The Copy by OBD programming method, if
available, is recommended to program new MX-Sensors as there is no need
for Relearn.
Copy by Activation
This function is used to activate the original sensor and retrieve the ID of the
sensor, and then program the original sensor ID to the new MX-Sensor.
35
Select Copy by Activation from
programming list. Activate or

Press any button to continue.
By using Copy by Activation, the sensor ID that is retrieved from activated
sensor is programmed to the new MX-Sensor. Because the ID of the original
sensor and the new MX-Sensor are the same and the ID is already registered
to the vehicle ECU, there is no need to perform the Relearn function when
the new programmed sensor has been attached to the same wheel.

Press any button to continue.
The Copy by Input programming method uses the ID of the original sensor
that is already stored within the TPMS ECU and therefore does not require
the sensor be relearned if the new programmed sensor has been put in the
same wheel location.
Auto Create 1-16 Sensors
This function is used to auto create unique ID(s) to 1-16 MX-Sensor(s). A
random ID will be created for the MX-Sensor. This new ID differs from the ID
stored in the TPMS ECU, therefore the sensor will have to be Relearned to
the TPMS ECU.
41
Place 1-16 MX-Sensor(s) close to
the top of the tool.
The tool will automatically detect
the sensors near the tool.

Once the sensors are successfully programmed, the sensor IDs and the
PSNs will display on the tool.
Position Relearn
Generally speaking, there are three ways for position relearn: Stationary
Relearn, Automatic Relearn and OBD Relearn.
Stationary Relearn
Stationary Relearn requires the vehicle be placed in the “Learn Mode”.
= Confirm
43
Read the Relearn Procedure
carefully and press Y to continue.
Follow the onscreen instructions to
activate all the sensors mounted on
the vehicle.
Note: all the sensors should be
successfully activated without any
duplicated IDs.
Once all sensors are successfully
activated, then follow the Relearn
Procedure to perform Stationary
Relearn.
Automatic Relearn
For some vehicles, the Relearn function can be completed by driving. Refer
to the on-screen Relearn Procedure for the exact details of the process.
44
= Confirm
Follow the Relearn Procedure to
perform Automatic Relearn.
OBD Relearn
The OBD Relearn function allows the TS508 to directly write the TPMS
sensor IDs to the TPMS module.
To perform Relearn, activate all four sensors.
= Confirm
45
Read the Relearn Procedure
carefully and press Y to continue.
Follow the onscreen instructions to
activate all the sensors mounted on
the vehicle.
Note: all the sensors should be
successfully activated without any

Once all sensors are successfully
activated, the tool will prompt users
to perform OBD Relearn, if
supported by the vehicle.
