TPMS is here and it has already been revolutionised…

TPMS (Tyre Pressure Monitoring Systems) became a mandatory fitment on all new cars from 1st November 2014.
To read our “2 years on from legislation” blog please click here.

TPMS has also become part of the MOT test for all cars fitted with the technology that were first used on or after the 1st January 2012.

There is now a legislative requirement to maintain these systems correctly and keep them functioning. Please click here to watch TyreSafe TPMS animation.

The revolution is here:

  • i-sensor is a TPMS programme that gives:
  • Over 95% coverage of all Direct TPMS applications in the UK workshop.
  • Instant availability, as and when you need it.
  • The ability to circumvent the ECU reset and therefore avoid the investment in these expensive tools for TPMS jobs, extinguishing the TPMS warning light safely and almost instantly.
  • Ultimately, saving your business and your customers time and money.

The History:

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.

There are two main types of TPMS, direct and indirect with differing features and benefits and there are many different types of sensors and sealing components associated with the more accurate direct tpms systems.
