Dec. 19, 2013—Snap-on announced on Wednesday that its TPMS3 Tire Sensor System Tool received a programmable sensor add-on package, the TPMS3PRG, that allows for programming replacement or duplicate aftermarket tire pressure monitoring sensors.
“The Snap-on TPMS3PRG activation enhances the capabilities of our TPMS3 tool, allowing technicians the opportunity to replace a broken or non-functioning sensor by programming a duplicate sensor with an identical ID,” said Mike DeKeuster, category manager for Snap-on. “In addition to this, it can also be used to create a generic sensor ID as well. Users can program universal sensors to fit multiple vehicles, greatly reducing the variety and number of sensors that shops need to keep in inventory.”
The list of aftermarket sensors the TPMS3PRG works with include:
- Alligator sens.it.
- Dorman DiRECT-FIT.
- Standard Clone-able.
- NAPA Echlin Clone-able.
- Intermotor Clone-able.
- OEC ID Copy (Orange).
