How to clone and program new TPMS sensors with Autel MX Sensors & MaxiTPMS PAD

Here I show you how you can buy TPMS sensors on the cheap and clone your existing ones to avoid having to visit your dealer to reprogram your vehicle. Use this if you are replacing a broken TPMS sensor, or if you want to install new ones, especially in winter tires, for example.

I'm doing this for my 2009 Honda Odyssey EX-L, but the principles apply to any supported vehicle.

To figure out if you need the 315MHz or 433MHz model, go to this page, click the 'Downloads' tab, and download the document called "Sensor_FUNCLIST" followed by your market. (e.g. "Sensor_FUNCLIST_V4.07_US.pdf" for North America)

That spreadsheet will also tell you whether your vehicle automatically learns new TPMS sensors. If it says "A", then you do not need to clone your sensors.

Then buy however many of the sensors you need:

315MHz MX Sensor:
Metal stem (eBay - from China)
Metal stem (Amazon.com - shipped from US)
Rubber stem (eBay - from China)

433MHz MX Sensor:
Metal stem (eBay - from China)
Metal stem (Amazon.com - shipped from US)
Rubber stem (eBay - from China)

  1. I can't get MaxiTPMS PAD to read the ID from either my 2006 Camry LE nor from my 2006 Lincoln Navigator. Is this just a bad unit?

    1. Are you sure the sensors that you're reading are still good? Is your TPMS light on inside the car? Also, if you're reading the sensors while they're still in the tire, try moving the PAD around. It might work better over the rubber rather than over the rim.

  2. Gabriel the light is ON on the Camry there is no problem or light on on the Navigator. I tried moving the PAD like you said but it made no difference. I just ordered the Autel TS401 and keeping my fingers crossed.
    Thanks for your answer
