AGOURA HILLS, Calif. — BendPak Inc. has introduced the Ranger TruSensor TS58R universal TPMS solution for diagnosing and programming tire-pressure monitoring systems on import and domestic cars, SUVs, vans and trucks.
The kit, which BendPak said offers 98% global vehicle coverage, includes a portable diagnostic and programming tool, metal stem sensors, snap-in rubber sensors, a USB-interface cable, OBDII cable and power cord — packaged in a padded carrying case.
The TS58R tool can test tire pressure, temperature and battery life; read and clear TPMS diagnostic trouble codes; reset warning lights; and diagnose car key remotes and fobs.
Technicians can control all operations through the 4.3-inch color touchscreen or by using soft-touch buttons.
Four different modes are available to program new sensors: copy by activation, manual input, auto-create and copy by OBD. The universal interface supports all 315 MHz and 433 MHz sensors, including OEM and aftermarket, BendPak said.
