Figures regarding MOT failures linked to TPMS defects have skyrocketed to more than 23,000 vehicles, an increase of 212%, meaning a visit to Bartec at the NEC could prove worthwhile indeed.
Bartec Auto ID will demonstrate its Tyre Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) tools in the Interactive Workshop area, diagnosing faults on wheels and sensors and showing how to make a programmable sensor to replace a broken part and re-learn an ECU with a replacement part number.
Bartec says its TECH500 is the only TPMS scanning tool in the world that boasts a combination of Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, inductive charging and keyless ignition testing. It can detect and diagnose sensor faults – possibly due to a failed battery, mechanical damage or corrosion – and can recognise whether the vehicle’s ECU or TPMS receivers are at fault.
MD, Colin Webb, will also deliver a presentation entitled ‘Six Steps to Success’ – where he will identify what is needed to carry out TPMS repairs, selecting appropriate equipment, parts, training and support, and how to sell professional TPMS servicing to customers.
Colin says: “Very few tyre shop chains in the UK have formally trained and equipped their technicians to service TPMS; the quality of training and support generally available leaves a lot to be desired. Bartec will be offering advice on the key steps to take to organise your shop and technicians in order to deliver high-quality TPMS services and send customers away happy.”
