In this video, learn how to enter TPMS sensor IDs with the NAPA 92-1551. The purpose of this new feature is to enter sensor IDs from an OE or aftermarket to a programmable sensor. In some scenarios, if the sensor IDs are the same for the new sensors installed, a relearn procedure can be skipped to save time. The sensor IDs must be known before manually entering them in a new sensor with the 92-1551 TPMS tool. An OE sensor has the TPMS sensor ID information displayed on the sensor, however, if it is a used sensor, it could be hard to locate. A programmable sensor does not have TPMS sensor IDs displayed on the sensor. (Note: the FCC ID is not the protocol sensor ID information, it is a governmental ID code and will not work if it is manually entered to a new sensor ID). The code is entered in decimal and hexadecimal.
Scenarios that would require a TPMS sensor ID to be entered manually to a new programmable sensor:
TPMS sensor battery is dead or damaged and able to read the sensor ID off of the original OE sensor
TPMS sensor battery is dead or damaged and have OE or aftermarket TPMS sensor IDs saved on file or saved within the history of the tool
