Allentown, PA November 3, 2020 – Continental’s new Autodiagnos™ TPMS D Tool helps shops and technicians to quickly and easily service all TPMS diagnostic and tire service needs. Designed to maximize a shop’s overall efficiency on TPMS and tire services, this innovative tool works with 100 percent of OE sensors and 20 aftermarket brand sensors, and can easily perform relearns on 98.6 percent of all domestic, European, and Asian TPMS compliant vehicles.
Designed to accommodate shops of all sizes, the Autodiagnos TPMS D tool can deliver complete TPMS service, diagnostics, and support tire service, and is an ideal solution for shops that only require a single tool for their service and diagnostic needs. This new tool can read and clear TPMS codes and has a built in VIN scanner for faster Make/Model/Year lookups. The TPMS D can also program sensors from historical data and features an OBD-II mode that streamlines relearns for all of a vehicle’s sensors to under two minutes.
Autodiagnos TPMS D features intuitive, easy to use software and can connect to Wi-Fi for software updates and downloads of the latest vehicle applications. It can also be updated using a PC-based update manager. The TPMS D tool can be coupled with the optional Continental Autodiagnos digital Tire Tread Depth Gauge to quantify tread depth for customers, helping to boost tire, suspension, and front end/steering component sales.
Continental’s new TPMS tool features a unique graphical user interface that allows use in a variety of lighting conditions including direct sunlight. Tool flow supports the shop’s repair process and allows TPMS and tire service functions to be accessed from the main screen without requiring vehicle specific configurations where applicable
Paul Schriro, Product Manager, Aftermarket Diagnostics – North America, Continental Commercial Vehicles and Services, noted that, “In addition to the Autodiagnos TPMS D, the Continental range of TPMS tools includes the Autodiagnos TPMS SE, which is designed for fast and easy TPMS and tire service and is ideal for shops with multiple bays where more than one tool may be needed.”
Both the Autodiagnos TPMS SE and D Tools are backed by Continental’s OEM expertise and pioneering leadership in TPMS technology.
