TPMS Sensor Replacement: Ensure Safe and Efficient Tire Pressure Monitoring
In today's automotive landscape, an ever-growing range of vehicle makes and models come equipped with advanced Tyre Pressure Monitoring Systems (TPMS). Since 2014, TPMS has become a mandatory feature in all new vehicles, offering valuable real-time data on tyre pressures.
Each tyre is outfitted with a sensor valve that continuously monitors pressure levels. When low pressures or imbalances are detected, the TPMS promptly relays this information to the driver through a convenient dashboard display. By activating a warning light when the pressure drops around 6-7 PSI, manufacturers ensure compliance with legal requirements, while some brands set their warning lights to trigger even with minor pressure decreases, providing an extra layer of assurance.
To maintain the optimal functionality of TPMS sensors, regular maintenance is paramount. At our centres, we frequently address common issues such as battery failure in TPMS sensors. As you accumulate mileage, the sensor's battery depletes at a faster rate, emphasising the need for proactive care.
In addition to battery concerns, TPMS sensor stems can corrode over time, much like standard tyre valves. Exposed to various weather conditions and enduring the rigors of the road, these components are susceptible to deterioration.
If you suspect the need for a new TPMS sensor, we encourage you to reach out without delay. Our experts are ready to assist you in ensuring accurate and reliable tyre pressure monitoring for a safe and efficient driving experience.
