June 11 Autel MaxiSys vs Snap-On TPMS & Tire Size Adjustment Sidst udgivet den 11-06-2018

I recently got the new 17.2 software upgrade for my Snap-On scanner, also the shop I work for got the newest Autel Maxisys Elite scanner. I had a chance to play around with them this weekend on my truck. All of this info applies to my 2008 3rd gen.

11-1

The newest Autel MaxiSys Elite. Choose “Hot Function”.

11-2

Next choose “Tire Pressure”.

11-3

The 3rd Gen has a heavy & light load TPMS settings and the Autel accommodates both settings where the Snap-On only gives you one setting.

11-4

11-5

I set my heavy load limit to 40 PSI which should trigger the warning light at 34 PSI. Note that the adjustment limit is 28-80 PSI.

11-6

11-7

After I reset the heavy load setting, I did the same for the light load setting and this was the final result.
NOTE: 28 PSI is the lowest possible setting available for my truck, with a 22 PSI warning light trigger threshold.

11-8

Newest 17.2 software

11-9

From the list of modules you can interface with choose the “TPM”.

11-10

Then choose the “System Tests” option.

11-11

Showing minimum setting at 28 PSI and the 6 PSI threshold to trigger the warning light at 22 PSI.

Right now my tires are set to 35 PSI and I have no warning lights on. The only side effect so far is that when I push the “Light Load” button on my dashboard, the indicator light flashes and then turns off. Something is not happy with the changes I made. I’ll have to play around with it some more to see if I can get the indicator light to cooperate. All of this was accomplish without needing a dealer supplied 4 digit code. I assume thats just something required for the 4th gen trucks.
