Home Products TPMS Training Video from Bartec USA Profiles the Wheelrite TECH400 Plus

Print Print Email Email

The Wheelrite TECH400 Plus from Bartec USA is the flagship of the aftermarket range. It does everything the TECH300 and TECH300 Plus do, but also is designed to enable the reprogramming of those cars which do not have a ‘TPMS relearn’ facility in the engine management software of the vehicle. This largely relates to Asian and European manufactured vehicles (including Toyota, Nissan, Hyundai, Kia, Mitsubishi etc.). It has a Universal OBD connector which enables communication via CANbus and K-line to the vehicle ECU. The TECH400 Plus uses its large backlit graphical display and menu system to navigate and display its data. This rugged lightweight compact diagnostic tool enables the technician to pre-select the vehicle make/model/year using its easy to use menu system. This leads to fast and accurate activations and decodes of TPMS and display of their data and any faults. The display shows a graphic of the vehicle to further simplify the audit process including four and five wheel vehicles.

The tool supports the replacement of TPMS sensors and the reprogramming of the car and turns the warning light off. It does this using the relearn option if available in the vehicle engine management software or otherwise using the OBD connector. The tool actually decodes the sensor data which ensures that the correct TPMS is being read and that the tool is not fooled by RF transmissions from keyfobs or other sensors. The audit process allows the operator to display the data on screen but also to transfer it to a PC and print out an audit of the car and show the customer which TPMS is faulty and the nature of the fault. This is key to gaining the customer’s confidence and agreement to pay for work to be done before the wheel is broken down. This tool displays the replacement part number and service kit as well as the other data available including: sensor ID, PSI, battery status, temperature etc. It will also advise the user if the wrong TPMS has been fitted. This tool works with all cars on the market. Click here for our online video of the Wheelrite TECH400 Plus.


Features include:
• Bartec large, easy to read display;
• Make-Model-Year look-up;
• Downloads TPMS data directly to the vehicle;
• Uploads and can clear diagnostics, and inform the operator if he will require the spare;
• Rechargeable battery;
• Decodes and displays sensor data including: Sensor ID, PSI, Battery State and Temperature;
• Software designed to sensor specifications;
• Displays the replacement part number;
• Audit Mode – easily download TPMS sensor data to a PC or laptop for printing;
• Compact and ergonomic;
• Most complete sensor coverage;
• Upgradeable via USB port; and
• Sold as a complete kit.

The tool has been launched with OBD software for Toyota, Nissan, Hyundai and Kia and is software updateable using a standard USB cable to a PC simply by logging into the Customer Support Section of the website and entering account ID and password and following the instructions. This service is important as new TPMS are being fitted to new models at an increasing rate. Bartec is committed to progressively updating the software for all vehicle makes as soon as its development schedule allows. This service is the best available from any tool manufacturer as Bartec are working in the car plants and hence have the TPMS updates up to a year before other manufacturers. The tool comes complete with integral rechargeable batteries in a moulded carrying case with a USB cable, magnet (for older model sensors), protective rubber boot, user guide and recharge PSU.
