I got tired of having to run to the neighborhood garage and paying them to reset the TPMS systems on my vehicles so I bought an ATEQ VT-31 TPMS reader tool and ATEQ's QuickSet tool to load the data into the cars.
I used this setup and it reads and loads the data for both my summer and snow tires for my truck (2012 Toyota Tundra) no problem. It also reads/loads the data for the summer tires for the wife's car (2016 Infinity Q50) without problems.
But for some reason, it won't trigger the TPMS monitors in the snow tires for her car. When I do the exact same thing with those wheels/tires as I do with the other 3 sets, I get nothing. Not one of the 4 winter tires for her car will trigger.
Is it possible that the two sets of TPMS sensors in her car of different types? Maybe the reader can read one kind but not the other? I'm not sure if it's possible to use two different types in one car!
Or does this mean that the batteries are dead in all 4 of the sensors in that set of wheels/tires are dead? That would be odd since they are all the newest sensors of the 4 sets.
Are there any other possibilities I'm not thinking of?
