TPMS systems are installed to inform the driver of low tyre pressures or a sudden deflation of tyres. The primary aim of the legislation in europe is to reduce the overall carbon footprint attributed to cars, by maximising tyre life and fuel efficiency.
TPMS has become part of the MOT test on all cars fitted with the technology that were first used on or after the 1st January 2012. Come 2015 these cars will have their TPMS system checked for correct function as part of their first MOT.
These systems can be expensive to maintain and if not looked after correctly can result in safety issues. Tyre pressure monitoring is now compulsory on all new cars and if not working will be an MOT failure. Typical replacement of 4 sensors at the main dealer could cost up to £800. They are non serviceable and have an approximate 5 year life span. So sooner or later they will need replacing.
We now have the equipment to diagnose faults & replace/clone sensors at a fraction of the cost of a main dealer. We are a stockist of replacement I sensors & valve hard wear.
