Here a collection of Foxwell NT1001 TPMS Trigger Tool Feedback about what it can work and not work. Hope it helps.
- Easy to use for resetting the TPMS sensors on our 2013 Cruze. Told me all the info I would want about the wheel sensors, too. The remote control detector was a little iffy though. I tried it with a known good remote and it took a while and several tries to get it to register. The directions on how to use this part were sketchy so maybe I was using it wrong.
- Can do 2014 gm vehicles
- It works on both 4 and 5 wheel sensors so if your truck has the sensor in the spare also this will take care of it.
- Decode and active Cadilac CTS 2013 TPM Sensor ok
Foxwell NT1001 using tips:
One suer feedback he has no luck to read the TPM sensor information on 2007 Subaru Outback and 2010 Dodge Ram 1500
Tip: When you use NT1001, firstly please make sure the distance between the vehicle and machine not exceed 5cm, then use the built-in magnet to move around the sensor to adjust the frequency, when the device can read your sensor, it means you have adjusted frequency successfully.
One user feedback “by following the user manual he tried to update, he pressed the “Help” button for 5 seconds but failed to enter “Update” mode.
Tip: When you update, firstly turn off the machine, then hold down the “Help” key, then connect to the computer.
BTW, when you use it to decode or active the TPMS, it needs no connect to the computer, unless you want to update it.
- NT1001 is a tpms trigger tool, it has special function of TPM sensor decoder or activator. So, it doesn’t have multi-functions compared to other diagnostic tools
- Re-program tpms sensor on 2013 Honda – Not work
- 2008 Nissan Maxima do this tpms program and program the ecu for a new tire sensor – Not work, advise you use GT80 or GT80 plus which can perform this function. (These days, buy one GT80 plus at foxwelltool.com, you can get one free NT1001)
I recommend this Foxwell NT1001 for both professional technician and home mechanic, since it is easy to use without much skill, you just hook it up to decode and active TPMS sensor and get accurate data on the screen.
