The Snap-on TPMS3 Tire Sensor System Tool just got a whole lot better with the introduction of the new Snap-on Programmable Sensor Add-on Package (TPMS3PRG). With this new capability, service technicians can program replacement or duplicate aftermarket tire pressure monitoring sensors, saving time and reducing sensor inventory.

“The Snap-on TPMS3PRG activation enhances the capabilities of our TPMS3 tool, allowing technicians the opportunity to replace a broken or nonfunctioning sensor by programming a duplicate sensor with an identical ID.  In addition to this, it can also be used to create a generic sensor ID as well,” said Mike DeKeuster, category manager for Snap-on. “With TPMS3PRG, users can program universal sensors to fit multiple vehicles, greatly reducing the variety and number of sensors that shops need to keep in inventory.” 

The new Snap-on TPMS3PRG is an optional activation that allows users to utilize their existing or new Snap-on TPMS3 tool to program aftermarket TPMS programmable sensors. The TPMS3PRG can replace a sensor with low battery life or one that is non-functioning, as well as create a duplicate set of sensors for customers that change from summer to winter sets of tires. The TPMS3PRG works with all the major aftermarket sensors including: EZ-sensor, Alligator sens.it, Dorman DiRECT-FIT, Standard Clone-able, NAPA Echlin Clone-able, Intermotor Clone-able and OEC ID Copy (Orange).

The Snap-on TPMS3PRG kit consists of a registration certificate containing a web TPM code which allows access to sensor programming functionality and a 2GB micro SD storage card. The kit requires TPMS3 software version CS2-02 or newer. TPMS3PRG is a one-time activation to program aftermarket TPM sensors and subsequent updates to TPMS3PRG are part of the standard TPMS3U annual update.
