Common TPMS malfunctions
Here are some known problems which frequently afflict Tyre Pressure Monitoring Systems and the sensors start behaving awkwardly.
A. Note that these monitoring systems have their own power source. Most manufacturers use 3-volt Li-ion cells, but some carmakers may fit this sensor with multiple 1.25-volt nickel batteries. If these power sources fail, your TPMS readouts will go blank suddenly.B. At times, the TPMS warning light may come on intermittently. It indicates a failing car battery.
B. At times, the TPMS warning light may come on intermittently. It indicates a failing car battery.
C. Faulty wiring, loose connections and a broken antenna may also cause TPMS problems.When you bring your car to Tyres Shrewsbury, we can easily solve these three widespread problems with a TPMS sensor replacement.
D. If you have had your car’s tyres rotated or aligned lately, the operations may have disturbed the TPMS. Bring your car to our garage immediately to prevent any further damage to your car’s TPMS sensor Shrewsbury.
E. Lastly, it has been noticed that many drivers in the UK do not know what to do when the TPMS warning light comes on. This surprising result was borne out by a Government-sponsored study. What’s more, several respondents thought that a visual inspection, instead of using a pressure gauge, would apprise them of the current air pressure.
All of these variables come into play when you are driving on the British roads. To ensure you do not face any untoward incident, have your car’s TPMS sensor Shrewsbury checked at our facility.
