Autel TMPS Tool MaxiTPMS TS601 vs. MaxiSys MS906TS

The purpose of the TPMS in vehicles is to warn drivers that at least one or more tires are significantly under-inflated, possibly creating unsafe driving conditions.

In low tire pressure condition, The Autel Scanner TPMS indicator is a yellow symbol like this:


Why TPMS becomes so important in the world?

Even now, a substantial number of vehicles hit the road each day with underinflated tires. However, proper tire maintenance with the aid of a TPMS can and does help prevent many serious accidents.

Then, in response to a surge in accidents due to underinflated tires, the US government passed the Transportation Recall Enhancement, Accountability, and Documentation (TREAD) Act. One of the outcomes of this legislation is that vehicles sold in the United States since 2007 must include TMPS of some kind.

What’s the difference between them?


Below are most powerful TPMS Diagnostic and Service Tools in today’s market.

First TPMS tool is Autel MaxiTPMS TS601

It can fully diagnose TPMS problem, activate TPMS sensors and reprogramming the vehicle’s ECU. By working with 433MHz/315MHz MX-Sensor, this combination can solve all TPMS problems.

Second TPMS tool is newest Autel MaxiSys MS906TS

The AUTEL MaxiSYS MS906TS has an all-in-one exceptional OE-Level functionality from OBDII diagnostics, ECU coding to complete TPMS service. With this, Now technicians don’t need a second TPMS tool to trigger, relearn, or program MX-Sensor. Quickly test all vehicle systems by touching 8.0” screen tablet of the MS906TS.

Other difference is their configuration, MS906TS is Andriod based tablet diagnostic and TPMS Service tool with Samsung Exynos T5260 6-Core Processor, 2 GB RAM & 32 GB ROM which means MS906TS will run much faster than other similar tools.

Apart from this, MS906TS is Wireless TPMS & Advanced Diagnostics tool.

Enhanced wireless connectivity between the display tablet and VCI device allows greater mobility and ease at work. This also help you troubleshooting by professional technicans.


Experience with Autel MaxiSys Mini MS905, MS908, MS908P

Between my personal use the few times I’ve been able to get a live person on the phone picking their brain and whatever I can gather from other sources been trying to put together the big picture about capabilities for the Maxisys MS908P and whether or not I should upgrade. Currently have the Autel MaxiSys Mini MS905 recently purchased and happy with the extensive coverage although it has some things that don’t work or gaps (all scan tools do) mostly disappointed with management system which is a bare bones and locked. Like others WI-fi is flaky but get it to do basic needs like printing reports and updates. I went for the Mini MS905 because bigger screen meant nothing to me and after talking to support software different from base MaxiSys MS908 to Maxisys MS908P. Have been using cardiq-plus for 8-10 years now and is always the unit validated on OEM sites or something they made for other vendors like snap on so I agree on that point. The big mystery to me or what Autel isn’t willing to state is whether using MaxiSYS Pro MS908P always requires use of manufacturer’s website especially J2534-2 capabilities or do they supply programming,coding directly to the tool without OEM like Auto Logic. Since shop works on everything split by region evenly and some manufacturers are just way too expensive unless you specialize what’s done or not done just with the 908P is paramount as I could just continue using cardaq if those capabilities aren’t any different from my current status as Autel Scanner 908P would just be another  scan tool as far as I’m concerned. Not sure what community to post in as this is the first but we are talking about what I’m trying to find out more about.
