We specialize in tire pressure monitoring sensor also known as TPMS sensor. When you purchase our TPMS sensor, we installed and programmed it for FREE! Yes, Free! Do not make the same mistake that everyone makes. Purchasing TPMS sensor online or any auto part stores WILL require programming even though it is compatible with your vehicle. Purchase any TPMS from us and let us take care the rest.
What is tire-pressure monitoring system (TPMS)?
A tire-pressure monitoring system (TPMS) is an electronic system designed to monitor the air pressure inside the pneumatic tires on various types of vehicles. A TPMS reports real-time tire-pressure information to the driver of the vehicle, either via a gauge, a pictogram display, or a simple low-pressure warning light. TPMS can be divided into two different types – direct (dTPMS) and indirect (iTPMS). TPMS are provided both at an OEM (factory) level as well as an aftermarket solution. The target of a TPMS is avoiding traffic accidents, poor fuel economy, and increased tire wear due to under-inflated tires through early recognition of a hazardous state of the tires.
The purpose of the TPMS (Tire Pressure Monitoring System) is to alert you when tire pressure is too low and could to create unsafe driving conditions. If the light is illuminated, it means your tires could be under inflated, which can lead to undue tire wear and possible tire failure.
On many vehicles, the TPMS needs to be electronically reset after changing or replacing tires. On others, driving several miles automatically resets the system as long as the sensors are functioning properly. ... The warning light may go off after the vehicle has been driven and tire pressure increases.
Most TPMS failures are caused by tire pressure sensors that have reached the end of the road. The batteries inside the tire pressure sensors have a service life that typically ranges from 5 to 7 years. ... Tire pressure sensors also can fail as a result of corrosion on or inside the valve stem.
It depends on the age of the sensors. By the time the tires are worn out, the TPMS sensors may be nearing the end of their useful service life — or they may not have enough remaining battery life to last another set of tires. The lithium ion batteries inside TPMS sensors may last anywhere from five to 10 years.
