Y our vehicle may come equipped with a tire pressure monitoring system (TPMS). The purpose of this system is to tell you whenever one of your tires is underinflated.
When it’s working properly, this tire sensor system can help you to detect punctures that you may have missed. That early information could save you hundreds of dollars in expensive tire and wheel replacements.
But a TPMS isn’t perfect. In fact, the system may end up failing, leaving you in the dark about the state of your tires.
When that happens, you need to call the tire sensor repair people. The team at United Tires offer a tire pressure sensor repair service that covers most makes and models of vehicle.
Each TPMS works slightly differently, but they all serve the same purpose. However, we need to know if you have a direct or an indirect TPMS before we can provide you with our tire sensor repair service.
Direct TPMS: A direct TPMS uses sensors that are placed within each of your tires. These sensors detect the tire’s air pressure levels and compare it to the recommended air pressure for that tire. In some cases, they may also create temperature readings. All of this data gets sent to a central unit in your car, which figures out what it all means. When a tire’s pressure is too low, you get a little warning light on your dashboard. This light tells you that there’s a problem with your tire that you need to take a look at.
Indirect TPMS: This system doesn’t use sensors inside your tires. Instead, it uses the wheel speed sensors that are in the antilock braking systems that many cars use. These sensors work out how many revolutions your wheels make and send this data to a computer system. This system compares the data against other key metrics, such as the speed of the vehicle, to figure out the relative size of each of your tires. If the numbers don’t match up, the computer detects an underinflated tire. Again, you get a light on your dashboard to tell you that there’s a problem.
Unfortunately, most vehicle manufacturers use their own TPMS models. This makes it difficult to repair a tire pressure sensor because you need a technician who understands both the vehicle model and the sensor it uses.
United Tire’s technicians can do just that.
When you bring your vehicle to United Tires, we will conduct a thorough examination and work out which TPMS system it uses. This is key in our tire sensor repair service. Once we know which TPMS system we’re working on, we can dig deeper into the potential issues.
There are several things that can go wrong with a TPMS, including:
We’ll figure out the cause of your TPMS issue and provide you with a quote for your tire sensor repair work.
