Is your car’s TPMS warning light blinking despite the optimum air pressure level of the tyres?
Though this can be due to several reasons, it can be a false alarm. One of the main reasons is failing to reset the TPMS after a tyre change. A TPMS reset service can also me necessary after a TPMS sensor replacement. It allows the new sensor to pair with the system.
To opt for professional TPMS reset Reading, come to Benten Auto Experts Ltd.
We are a family-run local business with a team of highly experienced in-house experts who can attend to all car makes and models such as BMW, Audi, VW, Porsche, Ford, Citroen, Peugeot and more.
How do they conduct the service?
They start the process with an extensive inspection of the TPMS sensors to detect the issue. Next, they run an intricate process to reset TPMS, enabling detection of the new set of sensors.
What are TPMS sensors?
TPMS or Tyre Pressure Monitoring System is an innovative safety feature comprising wheel sensors to continually read the tyre pressure levels. It comes with an average life span of 5 to 10 years.
Nonetheless, your car might need a sensor replacement before that for reasons such as:
Physical damage to the sensors
Extreme road, weather, and driving conditions result in dirt accumulation and oxidation of the wheel sensors. Such a condition is responsible for transmitting inaccurate information, and the TPMS blinks even though the tyres are inflated correctly.
Dying TPMS battery
An inadequate power supply from TPMS batteries can prevent the sensors from performing accurately. Thus they fail to confirm the actual tyre pressure level.
Over-exposure to heat and excessive debris deposition oxidise wheel sensors, making them inefficient in analysing the real-time tyre pressure level.
How we conduct a TPMS reset Reading?
Our experts will connect the TPMS relearn equipment to your car’s OBD II diagnostics connector to review and clear all codes. The TPMS system will pick up the new sensor ID and locates the new spots of wheel sensors.
