Types of TPMS:

TPMS can be divided into two types according to the tire pressure monitor ways: direct TPMS (dTPMS) and indirect TPMS (iTPMS).

Direct TPMS monitors the actual air pressure inside each tire via a sensor mounted within the tire. Indirect TPMS measures tire pressure by monitoring the speed and rotation of each individual wheel.

TPMS can give an alert when your vehicle’s tire pressure is low or is going flat. It helps to maintain the tire pressure which means it can increase your safety on the road by improving your vehicle’s handling, decreasing tire wear, reducing braking distance and bettering fuel economy.

I just searched on the hyundai-forums and many posters asked for a link to download GDS VCI software.

GDS, short for Global Diagnostic System which is the best OEM diagnostic system for Hyundai and Kia vehicle makes. I purchased the GDS VCI diagnostic system with the English version V15 for a couple of days. I own myself a 2014 Hyundai Santa Sport. I have tested the software on my Sony PC running win XP home. It helped cleared an ABS and an airbag error code, coded chassis module, read dynamic data, reset adaption values etc.

I am not going to discuss how to use the device or how the system works on my vehicles, I am just to offer some files download link for GDS VCI.

Software Installation guide for V15 GDS.rar download

Software and User manual download

Or you can download the software here

GDS VCI driver download

Hyundai & Kia-GDS software can not install in one computer. If you install KIA software, you need to install Hyundai master DVD first, or the installation may fail.

Do not mean your thanks if it helps.

When I want to read the cardata via the interface for my car, and then the subscription ended. It is somewhat different when I made comparison with what from the video. “Deactivation MAJ MD 1.0” File is missing on the DVD I downloaded.

Honda interface connects to the PC only on a Com Port (RS232), If you do not have a Com Port, you will need an adapter. Here I recommend High quality Z-TEK USB 1.1 To RS232 convert connector.

Before starting forced regeneration, there is much extra info you need keep in mind:
1.Ensure a PC laptop preferably holding the charge for use to avoid power out during the operation.
2.It takes about 30 minutes to finish the whole procedure. So either you stay in car while time is still on or off with the PC: Not to go back in the car during the regeneration, to avoid possible problems.
3.If you use an adapter Com, verify that the com port is set to COM1 (The interface does not work on another COM port).
4.Check the oil level before and after regeneration. When finish regeneration, the oil level is too high or it stinks diesel will require draining.
5.Disable the energy saving USB, anti-virus, Internet and all that can use PC recourses.

Forced regeneration operation:
1.Make a nice trick with car to make 76 ° stably or at least not too far.
2.Put them in a place where noise motor can interfere people and nothing can come under the car (The DPF rises above 600 ° C).
3.Open the hood
4.Disable all that pump energy (ceiling and more) and especially not fun to reactivate during operation.
5.Connect the HIM to the car and the computer.
6.Start the HDS
7.Turn the ignition II
8.In the HDS, press the “Select a new vehicle” and enter into mileage.
9.Select “System”.
10.Select “Diesel”
11.Check and delete the DTC menu “DTC- given frozen”. The HDS warns you it is absolutely necessary to remove them before operation and also check the various sensors of the DPF, so if you have a problem with sensors, do not hesitate going any further.
12.Go back to “settings”
13.Select “DPF Regeneration”
14.Put the engine running, power on the light and put the air conditioner on.
15.If the engine is not right temperature, the HDS asks to accelerate between 1600 and 2400 trs/min.
16.When the temperature is reached, the HDS take over, release the accelerator.
17.Allow the HDS to regeneration. The engine mounts alone at 3000trs/min during regeneration; it is stagnant at 1500 trs/min. At the end of the regeneration scheme dates back to 3000 trs/min to cool the exhaust line (weird, but it is like here).
18.When the regeneration is completed, leave the HDS, turn off the engine, remove the cable from HIM and go for a ride to make sure the cooling line.
All finished, hope it will benefit you much.

Recently there are some talks about which truck diagnostic system is better for Cummins vehicles, NEXIQ 125032 USB link or INLINE 5 Insite 7.62? Their differences are best displayed as chart below.
NEXIQ super-inline-5-insite
We can draw a conclusion based on the chart that NEXIQ USB link is able to access multi computer modules e.g engine, ABS, SRS etc, while Inline 5 mainly works on engine system.

When I told my friend that I ordered a VAS 5054A from a Chinese online shop a couple days ago, he seemed somewhat worried. But I would like to express that the tool I bought is on the basis of the good customer comments.
A week later after the day I ordered it, I received it without nothing damaged and broken. I was eager to test it whether can work well for my Audi A4. According to the expression of the seller, it can be only compatible with Windows XP. The result turned out to be a nice job.

With this Bluetooth version VAS 5054A, I do not need any cable, just easily connect my car via Bluetooth, so convenient isn’t it? Additionally, it does not only support Audi, but also is available for VW, Skoda, Bentley, Lamborghini and Seat. While I don’t try all the car models, except my car, I also tested it for my sister’s VW, works great as well.

After that I felt very hurry to explain the good effect of VAS 5054A to my friend. He was very glad to hear that and wanted have a stab on his Skoda another day.
