When the TPMS warning light is on, it may indicate low tire pressure or a broken sensor. So here i want to show you guide on how to use Autel MaxiTPMS TS601 and Autel MX-sensor to active and clone TPMS for Porsche TPMS.And for more TPMS projects,please check here:Automobile TPMS Projects
What Devices You Need?
In order to solve the problem and turn off the warning light, let’s start from the first procedure to activate the TPM sensors using the Autel TS601 scan tool.
1). Power up your TS601 and select TPMS from the main menu.
2) Select the make, model and year to enter the sensor activation screen. For example: Porsche Cayenne 2009-2010
3)Take a walk around the car to each tire and point the TS601 tool at the valve stem, then press the “trigger” button.
If the sensors are good and reading is successfully, the sensor information will be displayed on screen. In this case, the TPMS light is probably caused by low tire pressure. Check the test result on the Autel TPMS TS601 tool to find out the tire with low pressure value. Inflate the tire and the problem is solved.
If the sensor is bad and reading has failed, this may indicate that the sensor is broken either mechanically or electronically (Damaged, low battery), in this case you need to replace the sensor by cloning one with the original sensor ID or simply create a new one with a generated sensor ID.
There are 3 ways to clone a set of TPM sensors:
1st method: Using the Autel TS601 scan tool and a MX-Sensor. With the first method, use your TS601 tool to activate the broken OE sensor directly to retrieve the sensor ID and then program to the MX-Sensor.
2nd method: The 2nd method can be used when the original sensor is not transmitting any more. In this case connect the TS601 tool to the vehicle through the OBDII cable and retrieve the sensor ID from the car system.
Unplug the TS601 from the car when learning is successful, insert the MX-sensor and program the Copied ID to the sensor to finish cloning.
3rd method: to manually input the original sensor ID to the TS601 tool and the program it to the MX-Sensor.
