March 22, 2022 - Talking TPMS – Know How it Works, Then Know What to Say!

Scot Holloway, CEO - Bartec USA

We all know that servicing Tire Pressure Monitoring Systems can be challenging. It can even be harder explaining TPMS to consumers. The good news is there are steps that can be taken to make the process of Talking TPMS easier, more effective, and as a result even produce more opportunities to sell parts and service. It always helps to have a plan, so here's an example.

Talking TPMS begins with Education. Yep, it's on the front counter professional to educate themselves on what Tire Pressure Monitoring is all about. The components, the function, and the pitfalls and the risks if you ignore proper preventive maintenance. Consumers, by and large, are looking for the expert advice from their auto care professionals, the front counter professional needs to seize the opportunity and become that expert!

Talking TPMS – Know How it Works, Then Know What to Say!

Direct TPMS has five basic components:

  1. Wheel Sensor
  2. MIL/TPMS light
  3. Antenna
  4. Control Module
  5. Placard Label

In the majority of cases, the technician will focus on the sensor in the wheel, the status of the MIL/TPMS light, and the Placard. The placard shows the Recommended Inflation Pressure [RIP] for the vehicle for the wheels and tires on the vehicle. Note: it is a best practice to always confirm that the vehicle does in fact have fitted, the wheels and tires that are specified on the placard. Up-fitting and plus sizing can impact load carry capacity and recommended inflation pressure, so know the vehicle setup! If a vehicle has custom wheels and tires, and TPMS, verify that the custom setup supports the vehicle per the stock RIP. If the RIP has changed, the TPMS should have been recalibrated and a NEW supplemental placard label attached adjacent to the OE label.

After verifying the placard, the focus moves to the Malfunction Indicator Light [MIL]. With the Key On Engine Off [KOEO] look at the instrument panel and whether or not the MIL is on solid or flashing. A solid light means a low-pressure condition in one or more of the tires. A flashing MIL means a system problem, and further diagnosis by the front counter professional or the technician is required.

Talking TPMS – Know How it Works, Then Know What to Say!

Understanding the most common TPMS issues is critical. In MOST cases, TPMS issues are related to the sensor either not functioning, not properly relearned to the vehicle, is missing, or is in the incorrect position [not relearned after a tire rotation]. Using the proper TPMS tool that can test for these scenarios, then display the information in an intuitive report is the accurate and fast way to get your customer’s TPMS issues resolved.

It's important to note that the in the cases of a nonfunctioning, not relearned or missing TPMS sensor, the TPMS MIL may not be evident. In other words, it can sometimes take a long while before a failed or missing TPMS sensor actually shows as a TPMS MIL [flashing light]. This makes 'Test Before you Touch' an absolutely necessity. This table summarizes typical TPMS sensor failure scenarios.

Talking TPMS – Know How it Works, Then Know What to Say!

Once you've mastered the basic understanding of how a TPMS functions, and the components that comprise a TPMS, you are well on your way to TALKING TPMS with the customer. Perhaps the single most important tool at the disposal of the front counter professional or technician is the TPMS inspection report. If you can collect all of the relative data from the customer’s vehicle, you essentially have the makings of a SCRIPT of what can should be discussed.

Talking TPMS – Know How it Works, Then Know What to Say!

This is a typical TPMS inspection report that is available from today’s TPMS tools. Notice the details with which can be discussed with the consumer. In this instance, the front counter professional has enough data to discuss the wear of the tires, current tire pressure [an indication of whether or not the tire have been maintained], the amount of remaining tread, and of course the condition of the four TPMS sensors. Many reports like this also contain additional data like Diagnostic Trouble Codes [DTC’s] detected from the vehicle control modules.

Using an inspection report like the one shown, provides loads of information that can be used to inform, educate, and in many ways keep safe your customers. To further understand and better diagnose these scenarios, look to the TPMS inspection report. For example, in the case of a nonfunctioning sensor, the inspection report my look like the following sample:

Talking TPMS – Know How it Works, Then Know What to Say!

Note that for wheel position Left Front [LF], there are zeros for the ID’s as read by the tool. You can also note the ID’s that are still registered [or stored] in the Body Control Module [BCMID]. This information combined with the corresponding Diagnostic Trouble Code [DTC] is the exact type of information that should be shared with your customer as you walk them through the diagnosis.

Another common scenario is the TPMS Sensor not relearned to the control module. Your customer arrives with a TPMS MIL [flashing light]. You get your TPMS tool our and Test Before Touch, however you find that despite the presence of a MIL, all of the sensors are functioning properly and are the right parts for the vehicle.. Here comes the importance for the ability to connect via the OBDII port and to quote a famous radio personality, 'Get the REST of the story!'

The following data can be found simply by reading the stored information [in the BCM] and comparing it to what was tested or read by the tool. In the case of the un-relearned system, the inspection report might look like the following:

Talking TPMS – Know How it Works, Then Know What to Say!

Note that the sensor installed in the Left Front position, while functioning, is NEW. You will also see that the sensor ID as read by the tool does NOT match what is stored in the control module. This would explain the TPMS MIL the customer is experiencing. This would also point you in the direction of an easy solution. Simply perform a TPMS relearn, which will write the correct Sensor ID, and clear the corresponding DTC.

These are just but a few examples of how having more detailed information can only improve how you talk TPMS with customers. As the old saying goes, knowledge is power. Have a plan and make sure technicians are educated in the workings of Tire Pressure Monitoring Systems. TPMS is an important safety system that requires checking and maintenance.

Front counter associates and technicians that are armed with knowledge and a plan for informing customers can be successful in keeping their customers safe. Talking TPMS however, requires practice of that knowledge and a commitment to become an expert. To successfully talk TPMS, there are a few things to a front counter professional must commit to knowing, but with time they can effectively manage these discussions with their customers. It is worth noting that a key resource for any tire store is their TPMS Parts Provider. Companies that provide sensors, service kits and the necessary tools, should be equipped to provide the support needed.

March 21, 2022 - TPMS Service - Knowing Your Options Is the Key to Great Service

Scot Holloway, CEO - Bartec USA

By now, we all know that all vehicles sold in the United States have some form of a Tire Pressure Monitoring System [TPMS] included as standard safety equipment. While a small percentage are indirect systems, the overwhelming majority of vehicles with TPMS are of the DIRECT variety. That is, there is a sensor fitted inside the wheel/tire assembly, an antenna [or antennas] on the vehicle and a receiver mounted. Direct TPMS has been available on passenger cars and light trucks for a long time, but TPMS really became part of the standard equipment after the TREAD act of 2000 was passed. By 2008, all passenger cars and light trucks had to have TPMS and today there are hundreds of millions of vehicles on the road with this safety system. If you’re go to 'Own the Wheel Well,' you should be aware of the options that are available. Those options include TPMS tools and replacement sensors.

TPMS Service - Knowing Your Options Is the Key to Great Service

TPMS Tools

Offering excellent TPMS service begins and ends with the TPMS Tool. The type of TPMS tool needed depends on the level of tire service provided. Basic tire service is simply checking air pressure as part of a multi-point inspection program. In this instance, a basic sensor activation testing tool is required. The basic TPMS tester (or front counter inspection tool) offers a few advantages. First, it is fast and the 'touch-less' way to check tire pressure [assuming the vehicle has TPMS of course]. Secondly and more importantly, the TPMS tester lets the technician know whether the TPMS Sensor is functioning or not. This is an often neglected, but hugely important step in limiting liability!

TPMS Service - Knowing Your Options Is the Key to Great Service

What should be a concern for every service provider is that the TPMS sensors can stop working for various reasons at any time. Obviously the most common fault is the battery going flat. However, it can sometimes take more than a week or more than a hundred miles before the TPMS MIL flashes on the instrument panel alerting the consumer. The typical scenario is that a consumer arrives in the shop with a previously failed TPMS sensor, and it's not discovered by the technician. The shop performs a basic tire rotation. A few days later the TPMS MIL starts flashing and the consumer is back with a complaint! A simple 'Test Before You Touch' TPMS test prevents the shop from owning a bad sensor, and better yet, gives them the opportunity to sell them a replacement if capable.

If a shop is doing more advanced tire service, like tire rotations, tire repair and installation, and tire up-fitting or plus sizing [changing the placard], that shop needs a TPMS Service Tool or what's commonly known as a TPMS Scan Tool [one that combines TPMS Sensor testing with OBDII programming capability]. In these types of tire service, removing and replacing the TPMS sensor is required. Every time a new sensor is installed, it needs to be programmed [or learned] to the vehicle, and often time that means a connection to the OBDII port to accomplish the programming. Typically, the TPMS Scan Tool can be used for the Test Before You Touch test, replacement sensor programming, placard adjusting, as well as the OBDII relearning. NOTE: These more advanced tools are often needed for sensor programming as well. Sensor programming is DIFFERENT than TPMS Relearns as discussed later in this article.

Replacement Sensors
TPMS replacement sensors fall into one of three categories: Direct Replacement, Multi-Protocol and Programmable. These categories are based on how the sensors are fit for use and how they operate, and whether TPMS tools are required to use them.

TPMS Service – Knowing Your Options Is the Key to Great Service

Direct replacement TPMS sensors are typically a 'PART FOR PART' fitment. One part number cross references to the OE fitted part number. These sensors can be purchased in the form of OE equivalent, factory direct or in aftermarket versions. Whenever a NEW OE part number is created an update is required the direct fit replacement fitment guide. This type of sensor, like the OE sensor, requires a TPMS tool only to complete the TPMS relearn, and not to configure, prep or program the sensor.

Mult-protocol TPMS sensors are direct replacements for the original parts, except that one sensor contains 'many protocols.' As the name suggests, one sensor has been created to 'house' multiple sensor output protocols which means a fewer part numbers cover a wide range of OE part numbers. The way theses sensor work is, with each transmission, a number of different protocols are sent out. When fitted on the proper vehicle, the correct data is received and processed. Like Direct replacement sensors, Multi-protocol sensors do not require a tool to prep for use. A TPMS tool however, is required for the relearn process. It's worth noting, when completing an OBD relearn using a multi-protocol sensor, the TPMS tool must be able to filter protocols transmitted, and identify the one for the application being worked on. New OE part numbers can either be a revision in application coverage, or sometimes a new part release is required.

Finally, there are Programmable replacement sensors. These sensors require programming before installation. Programmable sensors offer the greatest flexibility while keeping the SKU count to a minimum. NOTE: The advantage to programmable sensors is that as new protocols emerge [coverage], the sensor can be updated with the new coverage, this limits new SKU's and obsolete stock. Programming these sensors can range from a simple sensor ID copy to a complete protocol and ID setup. Programable sensors are wirelessly programmed uses a Low Frequency [LF] signal, from a TPMS Tool. Programmable sensors typically require a device or TPMS Tool to program them PRIOR to installation [use]. Because they are programmable, they tend to offer latest coverage without part number supersession.

TPMS Service – Knowing Your Options Is the Key to Great Service

There are numerous manufacturers replacement sensors. When choosing a supplier, make sure you consider ease of use and coverage. There is new technology available that makes using programmable sensors just like using a OE direct fit. In other words, by combining sensor programming with the vehicle relearn, the process of using a programable sensor is identical to that of the OE replacement. In the end, which type of sensor you should consider will largely depend on your business and what works the best for the types of vehicles serviced. It is important to note that whichever solution is selected, using the TPMS service best practices is critical! In other words, regardless of the sensors used, Pre-inspection [test before touch], Diagnostics and the all-important TPMS relearn shouldn’t be skipped.

TPMS Service – Knowing Your Options Is the Key to Great Service

As you can see, when servicing vehicles with TPMS, there are options to consider. In many cases, the right solution is a combination of things. Activation tools for front counter inspection and TPMS Scan Tools for back shop diagnostics and repair. Which sensor you use should always be driven by quality and performance. In the world of Tire Pressure Monitoring Systems [TPMS] there is never a shortage of questions, issues or confusion. We’ve just passed the thirteen-year anniversary of the TPMS mandate, and consumers are keeping their cars longer, which means very soon, every vehicle that comes into the repair shop will have TPMS fitted. Will you be ready for them? Will you 'Own the Wheel Well?'

Gina Lombardo
Rob Francies

Sterling Heights, MI [September 2020] – Bartec USA, North America’s TPMS Professionals and the Original OEM TPMS Supplier is adding additional customer support to their National Sales Team.

Bartec USA Account Managers will be strategically located throughout the country giving our customers increased support, training, and overall better service. "Our Account Managers will be able to support Distributors and End User Customers alike," according to Director of Sales Ed Jones. "Having direct employees helps to make sure that our customers are getting the support and focus they need," continued Jones.

Earlier this year Bartec USA hired two Account Managers, one in the east and one in the west. Gina Lombardo is based in Nevada. Gina began working in the automotive aftermarket in 2004 in the Buffalo/Niagara, NY region. Working with Advance Auto, Auto Plus, Pep Boys and Carquest holding various roles from retail management to outside commercial accounts manager. In 2017 Gina joined American Tire Distributors (ATD) as an outside account manager for the Las Vegas market. She would later join Travel Centers of America as a commercial tire representative covering Nevada and western Arizona. Gina holds an Associate’s Degree from Portland Community College and studied Human Development with a concentration in Psychology at SUNY Empire State College.

Robert Francies is based in Ohio. The time he spent with his uncle while growing up was instrumental in cultivating his passion and love for cars. This passion pushed him to learn a variety of automotive skills and trades and carried him through 19 years of experience working with aftermarket products, installation, and sales. He has mastered car electronics, tinting, vinyl wrap, paint protection film and virtually any automotive repair.

Bartec USA’s sales team is made up of the industry’s most passionate and knowledgeable people. Their desire to teach, train and support is second to none!

March 1, 2020 - Bartec USA Remains Open

Dear Valued Customer or Partner, As you are no doubt aware, we are in unprecedented times. Many states, including Michigan, are under some form of “shelter in place” order. In Michigan, we have been ordered to stay home unless working at a business that is defined as essential. Businesses that provide service for automobiles are considered essential and therefore, so are their suppliers.

Bartec USA Remains Open

To that end, Bartec USA remains in operation. However, per our state’s order, businesses are to operate only with the minimum number of persons necessary. During this challenging time, we will remain open for business, albeit at a lesser capacity.

There will be reduced staffing company wide, and the hours of operation will be Monday through Friday, 8:00 am through 4:30 pm, eastern time. We have a limited number of associates working in all areas of the business including technical support, inside sales, field sales, shipping and receiving and accounting.

If you have any questions, please contact us at [855] 877-9732. Technical Support can be reached at [866] 407-8767. Thank you for your patience and continued support as we get through this difficult time together. Visit our website at www.bartecusa.com

September 1, 2019 - Bartec USA announces their new TPMS Sensor!

Bartec USA, North America’s pioneer in TPMS Equipment for OE Assembly plants, and leading tool provider to the automotive aftermarket, announces their latest product innovation, the RITE-SENSOR®!

Bartec USA announces their new TPMS Sensor!

RITE-SENSOR® is Bartec’s programmable, single part, multi-frequency, replacement TPMS Sensor. According to Bartec CEO Scot Holloway, “The benefits to using our new RITE-SENSOR® are many! It’s a single part solution, it comes with both valve options, and it programs quickly and easily using one of our tools that is likely already in your shop. It’s very easy to use and program, and offers excellent vehicle coverage!

Bartec USA announces their new TPMS Sensor!

According to Bartec, a single part [or SKU] solution helps reduce inventory costs, and eliminate confusion with technicians. The RITE-SENSOR® is programmable, so a technician simply uses a Bartec Tech400SD or newer TPMS tool to configure the sensor based on vehicle MAKE, MODEL and YEAR. RITE-SENSOR® programming is very accurate because of Bartec’s unique VINdicate® feature found on the Pro Series TPMS Tools. Connect your Tech400Pro to the OBDII port and quickly and accurately detect the vehicle identification number [VIN] and set up the tool and program a RITE-SENSOR®. According to Steve Long, Bartec’s Director of Operations, “Bartec’s process oriented approach to TPMS sensor programming means working with and using the RITE-SENSOR® is very easy and very fast!”

Bartec USA announces their new TPMS Sensor!

Bartec says that boxed RITE-SENSORS® include BOTH valve options. The RITE-SENSOR® comes with the rubber valve stem already installed. Should the vehicle application require an aluminum valve stem, that part is also in the box! According to Bartec Sales Manager Ed Jones, “having both valve options in the box and readily available to the installer saves both time and money, while freeing up the service bay faster.” Bulk RITE-SENSORS® and Tool/Sensor bundles will feature only the rubber stemmed version, according to Bartec.

Also according to Bartec, to get access to the necessary tool software that programs RITE-SENSOR®, simply log in to your current tool account at tools.bartecusa.com and download and install RELEASE 60. The RITE-SENSOR® is programmable on Bartec tools only, including the Tech400SD, Tech500, Tech300Pro, Tech400Pro and Tech1000. According to Holloway, “Even with the availability of our own TPMS Sensor solution, Bartec remains committed to working with all of our major sensor partners and will continue to maintain sensor coverage for those popular brands of sensors. It’s important that our tool customers have access to the sensors of their choosing.”

Bartec USA announces their new TPMS Sensor!

The RITE-SENSORS® as well as a full range of service kits, valve cores and replacement valves, becomes part of Bartec’s complete, one-stop-shop for TPMS service. All backed by the leading Technical Support Team in the industry, the Bartec TPMS solution includes Tools, Sensors, Service Kits, Consumer Information, and as always, Product Training. Bartec says that product is on the shelf and orders to distributors will begin processing the week of September 9th. Software Release 60 will be hosted to their website by September 13th.

March 1, 2019 - Placard Changing - You Can you do it!

A while back, legislation known as the FAST (Fixing America’s Surface Transportation) ACT was signed into law. Buried in the litany of provisions covered by this Transportation Bill, which range from point of sale tire registration to the funding of infrastructure improvement, was a few paragraphs regarding Tire Pressure Monitoring Systems (TPMS) While enforcement of these provisions are a ways off, and no clear indication of how they will be applied, we at Bartec are happy with the context and direction!

Placard Changing - You Can you do it!

In our opinion the things that are a cornerstone of our message, like investing in the proper tools and training to better serve their customers, have been confirmed, at least in part, by the text of this new law!

We’ll leave the law’s ultimate interpretation and application to the legal experts. However, it is Bartec’s that view the wording, at a minimum, seems to suggest that we are on the right track with our strategy and tool features and functions. Specifically speaking we think the verbiage means:

  1. The systems cannot be overridden, and
  2. TPMS service must always be completed in such a way as to NOT cause the system to no longer detect when the inflation pressure in one or more of the vehicle’s tires has fallen to or below a significantly under inflated pressure level.

October 1, 2018 - Bartec USA announces their latest software update!

Bartec USA, the North American leader in TPMS Diagnostic tools and solutions, announces the release of their latest TPMS tool software update. “Software update 58 will revolutionize TPMS service,” according to Bartec CEO Scot Holloway. “Bartec is the industry leader when it comes to offering tool features that help our customers become more efficient and profitable servicing TPMS,” Holloway continued.

Bartec USA announces their latest software update

Software update 58 is now available for download for your respective Bartec TPMS Tool. In order to download and install this update, make sure you are a current subscriber at tools.bartecusa.com

This newest version of software is packed with features and coverages that only Bartec TPMS Tools can offer. The available features depend on which Bartec tool you have and are clearly defined in the software release bulletins found by clicking the Tech Support icon found in Bartec’s TPMS Desktop. Most notable is VINdicate®, Bartec’s exclusive new fast and easy way to select the vehicle and retrieve TPMS fault codes in one simple step. Simply connect the Bartec Pro Series tool to the OBDII port and let the tool do the work! The VIN is detected and decoded, and with the make-model-year selected, the DTC’s are also detected and decoded. Now the technician has the basis for understanding what services are necessary, making quoting and selling TPMS much easier.

Bartec USA announces their latest software update

“Of course, all of this information is stored as collected, and is easily retrieved and displayed on informative inspection reports. Bartec’s goal is to make the TPMS diagnostic and service process so fast to complete and easy to explain that our customers will sell more TPMS parts and service” according to Michael Rose, Product Manager at Bartec USA.

Also in update 58 is additional placard coverage for the Tech400 Pro. Bartec tools use a secure method for adjusting the placard to prevent making the TPMS inoperative. Bartec understands the level of security and safety required when connecting to vehicle control modules, and as a result they build in rock solid processes that help technicians be successful while keeping their customers safe and protected. For a complete rundown of all that update 58 offers, download the release notes at www.bartecusa.com/pdf/r58.0-software-release-document.pdf

As usual, Bartec will post updated coverage charts on their website bartecusa.com, specifically at bartecusa.com/tpms-tool-coverage-charts. Bartec’s TPMS coverage for OBD relearns, sensors covered and placard adjusting are second to none.
