    You can tell that Mitsubishi is doing something different in their TPMS system because the tools that do work require a special OBDII "adapter" cable.

    Here is the Bartec tool (and "magic" Mitsubishi OBDII adapter) that my local Discount Tire used to do a re-learn in my 2015 Mirage...

    Got a Tech 400SD. Got the Magic Mitsu Cable. Got what is supposedly the correct software version. STILL DOESN'T WORK.

    I could very well be full of shat. I can get into the tpms menu and get into the program sensor screen for a Mirage but non of our cars came with tpms so I can't get any further than that. I keep getting "the ecm doesn't support that function". I can't seem to add it as an option in etacs either. I just assumed I'm able to read and relearn the car but I now remember what assuming makes.

    This is why buying a $125 Autel TS408 tool to clone their $30 MX-sensors seems appealing. Clone the new sensor to your existing codes already in the car, & that is it. You are done. If you run two sets of tires, this makes even more sense to me.

    Plus, I can clone sensors for my Forester snow tires & any future vehicle I own. Sadly, TPMS is not going away in the U.S.

    That's similar to what my tool says. I can connect it to the OBDII port and select "Read Sensor ID's from Computer" and I get a message from the tool saying This function is not supported.

    If I try to put my car into "assisted re-learn mode", multiple dash warning lights turn on and I get a beeping alarm from the instrument panel that doesn't stop until I disconnect the tool. Scared the crap out of me the first time that happened!

    When I do live data and in certain menu's on these cars and I think some Nissans too, the abs and traction control lights come on when it's running. Weird, I don't know why it does that but it doesn't throw any codes.

    It doesn't work because they misspelled 'tire'.

    I'd be upset too. Give it a sticker and see if that helps.
