When You Should Seek Expert Help for TPMS Troubleshooting

TPMS Troubleshooting

Staying safe on the road is a top priority for all motorists, but one often overlooked aspect is the importance of proper tyre pressure. That’s where tyre pressure monitoring systems (TPMS) come in – these smart little devices alert you to any changes in inflation, helping to ensure your tyres are in top shape.

Underinflated tyres can have a significant impact on your vehicle’s handling, fuel efficiency, and even the lifespan of the tyres themselves. A TPMS monitors the air pressure in each tyre and provides real-time feedback, this not only enhances your on-road safety but also helps you save money in the long run by preventing premature tyre wear and tear.

Investing in a reliable TPMS is a smart decision for any driver, but with all electronic devices, sometimes things can go wrong. While troubleshooting can often be simple as recalibrating the system or repositioning sensors, when issues persist, expert attention is the best solution.

Common TPMS Problems That May Require Professional Help

While tyre pressure monitoring systems are engineered to be reliable, especially Safe T Tyre’s TPMS, there are some common issues that arise that might require the assistance of an expert.

Sensor Failure – Over time, sensors can fail due to a number of reasons including wear and tear, battery depletion, or physical damage. If a sensor is not functioning correctly, your TPMS warning alarm will sound, indicating the need for professional diagnosis and repair.

Incorrect Sensor Placement – Proper sensor placement is essential for accurate TPMS readings. If a sensor is not installed correctly or has been moved to a different tyre, it can cause inaccurate pressure readings and trigger false warnings. A TPMS expert can ensure your sensors are positioned correctly.

Incompatible Replacement Tyres – When you replace your tyres, it’s vital to ensure that the new tyres are compatible with your tyre pressure monitoring system. Incompatibility can cause the system to malfunction, leading to inaccurate readings and potential safety risks.

Don’t take chances with your TPMS. If you encounter any of these common issues, it’s best to have a TPMS expert diagnose and address the problem promptly.
