News and Updates
IMPORTANT - ATEQ Tool Update Required
Latest Software Resolves Problems
We are pleased to report that the issues affecting the previous ATEQ software versions have been resolved, so please ensure that your tools are updated to this improved version.
T-Pro Technical Bulletin
Now that the season begins many customers are programming a lot of sensors, far more than during the rest of the year. When a lot of sensors are in one place being configured, cross talk from operating sensors can bring some frustrations, which we hope this technical bulletin may reduce.
We would like to recommend some technical advice for customers when configuring the T-Pro, T-Pro 1 and T-Pro 2 sensors with ATEQ diagnostic tools.
When a T-Pro sensor is configured in an environment that is saturated with other TPMS signals (especially when many other T-Pro sensors are being configured in relatively close proximity), occasionally, rather than configuring the sensor as it should, the diagnostic tool may struggle to identify the sensor due to signal interference and come up with a "COM ERROR" message. However, usually by putting the sensor to one side, away from the other sensors, and leaving it for around an hour, customers should find that they are then able to configure the sensor successfully.
Additionally, customers can improve the configuration process by ensuring the sensors are placed around 10cm to 15cm from the diagnostic tool's LF (Low Frequency) transmitter, the small bump at the top of the tool, during configuration.
IMPORTANT - ATEQ Problems
Critical Issues found with the latest ATEQ Software
A serious issue has been identified with the latest VT56 software DA1-17-12, VT46 and H46 software ##2-04-13 and VT36 and H36 software ##1-07-11.
Due to a database error the ATEQ tools cannot be used to program Schrader EZ 2.0 Sensors for the Mercedes E-Class 2016 or the BMW 7 Series 2016. Furthermore, attempting to program the sensors for these vehicles will result in the sensor becoming permanently unresponsive.
We strongly recommend that you do not attempt to use these vehicles with the EZ 2.0 Sensor at this time.
In addition to the above, we have also identified some issues with the diagnostic tool's ability to successfully configure the T-Pro sensor range. Many vehicles, usually those with Schrader OE Sensors, will return a "Verify Error" during the configuration of the sensors.
It appears that, despite this issue, the sensors are actually being correctly configured and will operate correctly, but this may cause confusion for customers.
UPDATE 14th OCTOBER: THIS ISSUE IS NOW RESOLVED. PLEASE UPDATE YOUR DEVICES TO RECEIVE THE LATEST VERSION.
