The Nexiq USB Link 2 is much improved design, and we are sure that it will sell very well for a long time given its history and distribution network. We are constantly lurking in message boards and forums, and there have been reports of it not working with various equipment, but these are usually unfounded. We have yet to run across an application that would NOT work with the USB Link 2. If you do have one, please leave a comment below and let us know!
Once some aftermarket cables are available for this communication adapter, it will make the pain much easier for people to switch. If you are upgrading from the original the new model, you will have to install the new drivers, along with changing all your software programs to work with it.
If you are looking to purchase one, you can head over to our online store. Shameless plug: We carry these in stock, ship quickly, and help support them after! We will soon be releasing a video on this product, along with a Companion Guide as well.
The VT55 OBDII triggers all newly mounted TPMS sensors, reprograms the vehicle’s ECU and turns the warning light off. The ATEQ VT55 OBDII TPMS Diagnostic Tool uses the relearn option of the vehicle ECU software, if available, or uses the OBD connector whenever required. ATEQ’s VT55 OBDII decodes the sensor data and ensures that the correct Tire Pressure Monitoring Sensor is being read and that the RF transmission isn’t coming from key fobs or other sensors.
The process allows the operator to display the data on screen but also to transfer it to a PC and print out results to show the customer which TPMS sensor is faulty and why. The VT55 OBDII tool displays : sensor ID, pressure, battery status, temperature, accelerometer etc.
