Accurate tyre pressure is crucial to a safe and comfortable driving experience. Most vehicles manufactured after 2008 come equipped with a Tyre Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) that provides real-time pressure data.
At Garth Tyre & Auto Services, we understand the importance of an optimally functioning TPMS sensor Cardiff.
If you are looking for a professional automobile service station for TPMS sensor replacement, get in touch with our team today. Our technicians can service or detect performance issues with TPMS on any vehicle.
Importance of TPMS sensors
- The optimum tyre pressure varies according to vehicle make and model. You must strictly follow manufacturer specifications to maintain the tyre pressure properly.
- Receiving a real-time update of tyre pressure eliminates the risk of mishaps, as driving with underinflated tyres can cause sudden blowouts while also decreasing the longevity of the units by almost 25%.
- Moreover, vehicles running on underinflated tyres are at risk of slipping on wet surfaces and affecting braking performance. Hence, your vehicle’s TPMS sensors must be in working order to keep such issues at bay.
There are two types of TPMS sensors:
- Direct TPMS
- Indirect TPMS
Our experts at Garth Tyre & Auto Services are well-versed with both systems. Hence, on encountering an issue with the sensor, to replace the TPMS sensor battery, turn to the expert team at our garage!
Why does the TPMS warning light come on?
You will see the TPMS warning light blinking on your vehicle’s dashboard if the pressures in one or more tyres drop under 25% of the recommended limit.
However, the TPMS warning light can be triggered even if the tyre pressures are correct. It happens due to faults in the sensor or TPMS valve.
These sensors can sometimes transmit incorrect information if the TPMS valve cannot determine when tyre pressures drop. Thus, it is best to visit a trusted automobile service centre like ours for TPMS sensor replacement Taff's Well.
Also, if your vehicle does not have TPMS, we recommend you opt for routine tyre pressure checks at our garage.
