Are you looking for Tyre Pressure for your vehicle?

The TPMS (tyre pressure monitoring system) in cars warns the driver when there is a change or loss of tyre pressure. Underinflated tyres cause about 41% of accidents in the EU, resulting in injuries.

As per EU’s legislation in 2012, every passenger car in the EU must mandatorily have the TPMS installed. In fact, you will fail your MOT tests if your car has a faulty or inoperative TPMS.

It is, therefore, ideal to keep a check on your car’s TPMS sensor Airdrie. At Lanarkshire Recovery Services, our experts can provide accurate servicing and repairs of TMPS sensors, valve stems, rubber grommet, and valve nuts, among others.

How does your car’s TPMS work?

In direct TMPS, a sensor valve is installed in each wheel. The sensor relays a low-frequency signal to the vehicle’s ECU, thereby notifying about the tyre pressure and temperature. In contrast, indirect TPMS relies on the wheel speed sensors of the ABS.

TMPS valves ideally last 5 years or 100,000 miles, whichever comes earlier. However, other factors can damage it prematurely, requiring you to opt for TPMS sensor replacement.

How does the TPMS sensor get damaged?

  • The TPMS sensor can potentially get damaged due to corrosion of the valve stem sleeve and nut, valve core, rubber grommet, etc. In such cases, you can turn to our qualified technicians for thorough repair and servicing of the TPMS valve.
  • Extreme temperature and vibrations can also wear-out the sensors. These forces put incredible stress on the transmission coils, temperature and pressure sensors.
  • Another common reason for sensor failure is a malfunctioning sensor battery. Although the battery comes with a lifespan of nearly 10 years, it can get damaged early. But once the battery dies, you have no other option but to replace the sensor unit.

If you are concerned about how to replace TPMS sensor battery, we suggest you drive down to our facility and let us assist you promptly.

In case you see the TPMS warning light turn on, it indicates a malfunction that is either related to temperature or a pressure drop in the tyres.

Regardless of the issues with your vehicle’s TPMS sensor, you can seek our professional assistance for reliable repairs and replacement.
