Tyre Pressure Monitoring System TPMS Wolverhampton
If you car is fitted with a Tyre Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) and your car tyre becomes damaged, punctured or loses air because pressure has dropped over time, then a warning light like the ones shown below, will appear on your cars dashboard after a sensor detects the problem; either a warning gauge will show, or a low tyre low-pressure warning light will come on, or your computer display ( Audi, Mini, BMW and Mercedes use the display screen to alert you) will alert you of the problem with your tyre.
If this is ignored then you will be driving with under inflated tyres which is not only hazardous but will increase your fuel use and also increase tyre wear, because under inflated tyres affect the car or vans performance, economy and handling. At Kingswinford Tyres we are specialists maintaining and retro fitting Tyre Pressure Monitoring Systems, on any car make or model.
Driving your car that fitted with a Tyre Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) means you have peace of mind that the tyre pressure is correct as the sensor and system monitors each tyre, every few seconds. This warning can prevent a tyre blowing out or other related incident. as the system checks tyre pressure continually reducing your chance of a tyre blow out or accident related to poorly inflated tyres. TPMS will also leave more money in you pocket, as having the correct tyre pressure maximises a tyres life and also helps get the maximum fuel efficiency.
DVLA’s mandatory MOT test now includes Tyre Monitoring System (TPMS) for all vehicles that are fitted with TPMS and registered after 1/1/13, and if not maintained the car or van will fail the MOT test.
What is the lifetime of Tyre Pressure Monitoring Systems?
Typically sensors will last about five years or around 100k miles, but this depends on how the sensors have faired, how much use they have had, how much abuse from under inflated tyres, but can be replaced and made to operate like new with Kingswinford Tyres and Exhausts- The midlands premier Tyre Monitoring System Specialists.
Our technicians are fully equipped with the latest tools, programming software, sensor diagnosis equipment and systems. We can maintain TPMS systems on any car, any make or model.
