I've been doing uploads on TPMS on 4 vehicles (winter & summer tire changes) since 2011 with an ATEQ Quickset, Autel TS-408, and now have a TS-508. I've not had system operational issues, so probably no DTC's set. But as these are not the typical P0xxx or P1xxx codes, what DTC did you get, what tool did you use for reading it out, and what tool did you use for clearing it? Thanks!

I meant the TPMS lamp; I equated it to a DTC. The tool prompted me to clear DTC codes, and I selected the option to do it. The TPMS lamp went out and I did not even have to drive it for it to go off. When I had Discount Tire do it last year, I had to drive a few minutes at least before the lamp went off.

Interesting! So the TS508 allows you to clear out any lingering issues as well as upload the new ID codes. Good to know. Thanks.

I was unable to order the TS508K from the Advance Auto website. I figured out the problem. I was attempting to order the wrong part #. Thank you for the clarification, @Scrmn6.

I ordered the top item, part # ts508kmv-1. I did not login and did the order as anonymous, and used the Opera browser as Firefox, Safari, and Chrome did not work. Get the coupon from retailmenot[dot]com. There are 3 part numbers for this and only the one mentioned works.

While the TS-508 with 8 included sensors seems like a great deal, in the long run the savings might not be as much as you think...

The problem is that the package includes the old style sensors: 4 of the 315mhz and 4 of the 433mhz. These were superseded by dual band MX-1 sensors over a year ago (maybe long). The TS-508 has been out in the marketplace 2 years this April, so may of these "K" kits could be 15 to 20 months old at this point. Most places don't even sell them anymore. If you have immediate need for units of both frequency and will put all 8 right into service, the price can't be beat. But if not (one set will remain in the kit unused, for instance), you might be better off just buying the tool and new style sensors as you need them.

The old sensors were heavier, while the new ones are the reduced weight and form factor very similar to the new Schrader EZ 33500. It's easier to balance with less applied external weights. With revised electronics and fewer internal parts count, battery life is likely longer too. And they include both transmitters in one shell for maximum flexibility and all applications.

You can order MX-1's with rubber valve stems for around $90 for a set of 4, metal stems for around $100. I bought 4 metal ones on ebay recently for $98. Just something to consider....

The package includes 8 identical sensors plus 4 metal valve adapters in a box. They used to kit it with 4X 315 MHz + 4X 433 MHz sensors in the past. I am out of state, but will post pictures upon return. The kits Advance ships out are quite fresh based on the date code I remember. I got $50 off with an Advance coupon. Some folks are getting $80 off $320. My kit was @$285 with taxes delivered. The best prices I noted for the TS508 itself were @$235 at the time I bought my kit.

Sweet! Yes, I still see a bunch of the very old kits with black and orange sensors, older kits with all black dedicated 315(4) and 433(4), and some sellers with the NEW dual band sensors and 4 extra metal stems.

Last year I bought the TS508 alone for $215, and then 4 sensors for $98 so I'm in for $313. If you can score the tool plus 8 new style sensors for only $285 you have indeed done very well!

The kit from advance has 8 of the new MX-1 dual band sensors, and 4 metal stems included.

Just a follow-up. I put my 3 season tires back on today, used the tool to relearn the sensors into the OBD2. Five minutes from start to finish. A short drive later and the system is all set.
