TPMS are systems wired to the four wheels of your car to monitor their pressure continuously and to notify you if there’s any change. The warning could be visual or audial depending on your car model.
An unexpected change in tyre pressure could bring a line of inconveniences, including accidents. Therefore, your TPMS should always be in proper working condition to notice even the slightest of changes.
TPMS systems are also necessary for your car tyres since you can always have them check if you notice a change in pressure. This saves you the loads of money you would pay if you wear them down.
All new cars registered from 1st January 2012 and equipped with TPMS are required by law to undergo MOT tests. Now, if your TPMS system is malfunctioned, the chances of your vehicle failing the MOT tests become higher.
But you can avoid that by having your TPMS system checked regularly. In our garage, the most popular TPMS system fault we encounter is sensor related problems. Most of the sensor issues arise from battery failure and corrosion.
