Snap-on introduced the Tire Pressure Sensor System Tool Kit, a diagnostic tool that tests tire pressure monitoring sensors, captures sensor data, and relearns tire pressure monitoring systems (TPMS). An all-in-one tool for multiple vehicle applications, the TPMS4 features vehicle-specific prompts and reset procedures following tire rotation and sensor replacement.

The streamlined user interface on the TPMS4 features a daylight-readable, high-resolution display for reading PSI, ID, temperature, battery status and more. It quickly determines whether a replacement sensor is needed, provides quick registration of new sensor locations after tire rotations, and tests key FOBs for proper signal strength and battery condition. Running on a Lithium Ion rechargeable battery, the kit also includes TPMS connect software to print sensor information, as well as to access new software updates as they become available.
