7. OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS
7.1. TPMS TOOL OVERVIEW
Read and diagnose sensors, OBD2 ECU reset and transfer data to ECU.
Note: With most vehicles, if the vehicle is in “learn mode” the vehicle will also confirm that the TPM
sensor has communicated to the ECM with a series of horn beeps.
Service Procedure
Section 1.0: Read Sensor Test
Before servicing the tires/wheels, using your TPMS TOOL,
trigger each of the vehicle's sensors to make sure they are
working properly.
This will eliminate the liability associated with replacing
previously damaged or defective sensors. This procedure will
not change the vehicle settings because the vehicle has yet to
be put into learn/retraining mode.
This procedure allows you to quickly identify damaged or defective sensors, because some
vehicles do not report a damaged or defective sensor condition on the instrument cluster for up to
20 minutes.
Note: If the sensors do not trigger, please refer to the Troubleshooting section of this Guide.
Perform tire/wheel service.
For vehicles that require retraining, please see to Section 2.0
Section 2.0: Learning TPM System
With the vehicle in learn mode, begin by triggering the driver's front
left (LF) wheel sensor. Many vehicles will provide an audible beep
confirming that the sensor ID has been learned by the vehicle on
board computer.
The communication between the sensor and the on board computer is also
confirmed on LCD display of the TOOL.
The same procedure should be followed on all wheel sensors, in a
clockwise rotation, until all the vehicle sensors have been retrained.
After triggering the driver's rear wheel sensor, some vehicles will beep
twice, indicating that the TPM system has been retrained.
1 Start FL
FR 2
4 End RL
RR 3
Fig. 5
For vehicles that do not require retraining, we recommend you trigger each wheel sensor, one final time,
to make sure they are working correctly prior to releasing the vehicle to the customer.

device. Using another type of charger will
result in malfunction and/or danger.
When the red LED turns off, the charge is
complete.
About the Charger
Do not use the charger in a high moisture
environment. Never touch the charger when
your hands or feet are wet.
Allow ventilation around the charger when
using it. Do not cover the charger with paper
or other objects that will reduce cooling. Do
not use the charger while it is inside a
carrying case.
Connect the charger to a proper power
source. The voltage requirements are found
on the product case and/or packaging.
Do not use the charger if the wires become
damaged. Do not attempt to service the unit.
There are no serviceable parts inside.
Replace the unit if it is damaged or exposed
to excess moisture.
This charger is not a toy and should not be
used by children or infirm persons without
proper training or supervision.

clean it.
About the Battery
CAUTION: This unit contains an internal
Lithium-Ion battery. The battery can burst or
explode, releasing hazardous chemicals. To
reduce the risk of fire or burns, do not
disassemble, crush, pierce or dispose of the
battery or the instrument in fire or water, do
not short circuit or short the contacts with a
metal object.
Use a specified charger approved by the
ATEQ manufacturer and supplied with the
device.
The tool must be returned to the factory for
battery replacement.
Opening the tool or tampering with the
seal placed on the tool, if broken, will void
the warranty
Safety for Lithium-Ion battery use
NEVER leave the battery unattended during

imperatively be placed on a non-flammable
surface during charging (ceramic platter or
metal box).
Charge the Lithium-Ion battery ONLY with the
charger provided.
NEVER use a Ni-MH (Nickel Metal Hydride)
type battery charger to charge a Lithium-Ion
battery.
If the battery begins to overheat more than
60°C
(140°F),
STOP
CHARGING
IMMEDIATELY. The battery should NEVER
exceed 60°C (140°F) during the charging
process.
NEVER charge the battery immediately after
use and while still hot. Leave it cool down to
ambient temperature.
If you see any smoke or liquid coming from
the battery, stop the charge immediately.
Disconnect the charger and place the tool in
an isolated area for at least 15 minutes. DO
NOT USE THE BATTERY AGAIN. Return
the device to your retailer.
Keep a fire extinguisher for electrical fires
handy while charging the battery. In the
unlikely event that the Lithium-Ion battery
catches fire, DO NOT use water to extinguish
the fire. Take some sand or use a fire
extinguisher as described above.
Do not use it as a power source.
