Since 2014, all new vehicles have an integrated TPMS (tyre pressure monitoring system) as standard. This system consists of sensor valves in each of your vehicle’s tyres which continually monitor the pressure. As part of your car’s or van’s wider electrical system, the TPMS flags up low tyre pressure, or pressure imbalances and temperature fluctuations, by illuminating the relevant dashboard warning light.
Our workshop is based in South Holmwood, so we’re ideally located for motorists in the surrounding Surrey and West Sussex areas. Due to our reputation for unmatched customer care and value for money, we welcome vehicle owners from Dorking, Horsham, Redhill, Reigate and across the region.
Our experienced team covers all your TPMS-related needs.
If your current valves have suffered damage or are faulty in any way, we can replace or repair them.
And if you visit us because of an illuminated TPMS warning light, we can reset it and test your system. We then advise whether you need more pressure in your tyres or if the sensors have broken.
Of course, the primary reason to keep your TPMS sensors in optimal condition is for your own safety. Not all damage to tyres is obvious, and in many cases, you won’t even experience a change in handling. But if your tyres slowly lose pressure without you realising, you increase the risk of an accident or serious vehicular damage.
In addition, tyres without the correct pressure suffer premature wear and lead to less effective fuel performance. This has a financial impact. You will need tyre replacement services sooner than necessary, not to mention more frequent trips to the petrol station.
Your TPMS sensors activate the warning light when there is a drop in pressure of between 6 to 7 PSI. Because your system alerts you early, you have plenty of time to schedule a visit to Trustyres for the necessary work. With swift action, you increase your safety on the road while lowering long-term costs.
You should also note, a faulty TPMS sensor now results in immediate MOT failure. If your vehicle has an illuminated TPMS warning light, it automatically fails the test.
What Does My TPMS Warning Symbol Look Like?
The TPMS warning symbol resembles a horseshoe with an exclamation mark in the centre. If this appears on your dashboard, get in touch with Trustyres to schedule an appointment.
