Default Maybe Not Solved -Issues with Ateq Quickset tool - 08 Impreza

See last post, I may still have lingering issues


I just purchased the Ateq Quickset tool for our 2008 Impreza
All sensors are OEM on both sets of tires

I went through all the steps:
>installed the software on the laptop (which was a royal pain to finally get it working)
>downloaded existing sensor IDs from car's ECU for the winter tires and stored on the laptop
>entered sensor IDs for the summer tires on the laptop, then uploaded to Ateq Quickset tool and finally to the car's ECU

Next, I swapped tires this morning then took a short drive
All was good initially, but at about 5 miles the TPMS idiot light started flashing, then shortly after it was on solid

So, I took the car to local tire shop (Les Schwab)
The tech used a high-end TPMS tool going from tire to tire to match or synch the sensors to the car's ECU
No issues after 30+ miles

On returning home, my plan was to wipe the senor IDs that I had input for the summer tires in the Ateq Quickset tool and then connect the tool to the car and download what is currently in the ECU and playing well

However, there doesn't appear to be anyway to delete the ID's currently on the Ateq Quickset tool
I deleted the ID's on the laptop, then connected the Ateq Quickset tool and clicked on the upload from PC to tool icon, but it wants me to connect it to the car
I'm definitely not doing that because the ID's I entered are still in the tool and most likely will step on the good values currently in the car's ECU

Also, I don't really want to use "Delete Vehicle" option, because it will also delete the ID's that I downloaded for the winter tires, which should be good
Plus I don't think this process would remove the ID's currently stored on the tool

So, I'm wondering if the Ateq Quickset tool is defective
I do have the option to return it

Or if there is some other issue that occurred


Any advice?

Thanks

Thanks Luke
Both sets of sensors are awake now, so I shouldn't need the VT30, unless I'm missing something

I've been emailing back & forth with ATEQ, so support is there

But I'm being overly conservative not wanting to step on the TPMS data currently in the ECU that now is working fine for the summer tires

My concern is that if I reconnect the Quickset tool to the car it will step on the data currently in the ECU, rather than download the data from the ECU to the tool
So far there appears to be no way to completely clear the data on the tool
ATEQ advised that even deleting the vehicle will not remove the senor data that is already written on the tool

Although they think everything will work out in the end
I'm not so certain without either being able to dump the good data for the summer set to the tool or wipe the data in the tool and start over

There must be a way to do it, as the same tool is sold used and would have data on it from the prior vehicle

Any other suggestions would be helpful & appreciated

From the users manual:

10 DELETE VEHICLE
1. If you need to delete a vehicle for any reason, simply click on the icon.
2. Click “Yes” to proceed or “No” to
cancel the process.
NOTE: The vehicle cannot be deleted after successfully reprogramming the ECU.

Based on this info it appears that deleting the vehicle is not an option

Seems like something that should be so simple isn't

Just looking for any additional on-point advice, before I decide to return the tool or not

My earlier post #6 from the manual appears to eliminate the suggested option in post #3 of deleting the vehicle and starting over

So, does anyone know what will happen when I go thru these steps:
1. connect the tool to the laptop and select option to download from car
2. connect the tool to the car's OBDP2
3. press the summer button
4. connect the tool back to the laptop

Two possible outcomes:
Summer IDs will download from the car to the tool then upload fine to the laptop
or
Summer IDs already stored in the tool will step on those in the car's ECU

Thanks

This evening I went through all the steps to download the IDs from the Suby's ECU to the ATEQ tool and everything appears to be fine
I drove the car for 10 miles and no TPMS warning light

The IDs stored in the ECU apparently wrote over those previously stored in the tool (originally, I entered the serial numbers in the software on the laptop)
And the IDs were successfully uploaded to the ATEQ software on the laptop

Interesting/odd side note:
The IDs / serial numbers stamped on the outside of the sensors are not the same as the IDs that were written to the tool from the car's ECU
The serial numbers are all numeric but the internal IDs are alpha numeric

Just curious if anyone knows anything about this?

Well actually maybe not solved

In November when I swapped to winter tires everything seemed to work fine using the ATEQ Quickset tool
But about 25 miles later the dreaded TPMS warning light came on
Air pressure was spot on for all four tires

Ended up at the tire shop again to have the sensors reset with their tool

Interesting the TPMS light came on again somewhere between 50-100 miles
Then after a 350 mile trip the light went out

All seems to be fine now, go figure what's going on

Still wondering about the ATEQ tool...

Or just ignore the idiot light. Unless you're the kinda guy that needs the light.

Sorry, I know this an old thread. My guess is the number in the ECM is probably in HEX while the serial number is in decimal. If you have the number you can do dec to hex conversion. (Or post up number and I can do it for you to confirm)

(BTW I believe it is actually a separate module that stores the tpms info, not the ECM)
