What is a Tire Pressure Monitoring System Sensor?
A Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) Sensor is an electronic device mounted inside the tire of a vehicle that monitors the air pressure within the tire and warns the driver when the pressure becomes too low.
What is the purpose of a TPMS Sensor?
The purpose of a TPMS Sensor is to alert the driver when the air pressure in a tire has dropped below a certain level so that the driver can take action to prevent tire failure.
How do I know if my TPMS Sensor is faulty?
If your TPMS Sensor is not working correctly, it will not accurately measure the air pressure in your tires. You can tell if your TPMS Sensor is faulty by checking the air pressure in your tires with a tire pressure gauge, which will give you a more accurate reading than the TPMS Sensor.
Can a faulty TPMS Sensor cause damage?
Yes, a faulty TPMS Sensor can cause damage. Low tire pressure can lead to tire failure and a sudden loss of control of the vehicle.
How do I replace a TPMS Sensor?
- Make sure the vehicle is parked in a safe place and the ignition is switched off.
- Remove the wheel from the vehicle and remove the tire from the wheel.
- Remove the old TPMS Sensor from the tire, taking care not to damage the tire.
- Install the new TPMS Sensor in the tire, making sure it is properly secured.
- Reinstall the tire on the wheel and the wheel on the vehicle.
- Check the air pressure in the tire with a tire pressure gauge.
- Turn the ignition back on and reset the TPMS system if necessary.
