TPMS Maintenance, Calibration, and Repair

The Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) service at PickupsPlusCars involves the maintenance, calibration, and repair of the sensors and monitoring system designed to alert you of underinflated tires. We provide thorough inspections to identify any issues with the TPMS sensors, such as faulty sensors or low battery levels, as well as recalibration of the system after tire rotations or replacements.

Our skilled technicians use specialized tools and equipment to diagnose and address TPMS-related problems efficiently, ensuring accurate tire pressure readings and timely alerts to prevent unsafe driving conditions. They’ll also provide you with tips on proper tire maintenance and guidance on how to respond to TPMS warnings effectively.

Tire Pressure Monitoring Made Easy

  • Sensor Diagnostics and Repair

    This service involves diagnosing and repairing issues with TPMS sensors, including identifying faulty sensors, low battery levels, or sensor malfunctions. Our technicians use specialized tools and equipment to troubleshoot sensor problems and ensure accurate tire pressure readings.

  • System Calibration

    TPMS system calibration is essential after tire rotations, replacements, or other maintenance procedures to ensure accurate tire pressure monitoring. This service involves recalibrating the TPMS to account for changes in tire positions or configurations, ensuring that the system provides reliable alerts for underinflated tires.

  • Sensor Replacement

    Over time, TPMS sensors may wear out or become damaged, requiring replacement to maintain proper functioning. Our TPMS service includes the replacement of faulty sensors with new, compatible sensors that meet OEM specifications, ensuring accurate tire pressure monitoring and system reliability.

  • Sensor Programming and Relearn

    When new sensors are installed or replaced, they need to be programmed with the vehicle's unique identification codes. Additionally, after sensor replacement or tire rotation, a relearn procedure is often required to synchronize the sensors with the TPMS system.

Common TPMS Questions

  • Why is my TPMS light illuminated, and what should I do when it comes on?

    The TPMS light typically illuminates when one or more tires are underinflated, indicating a potential safety hazard. When the TPMS light comes on, it's essential to check your tire pressures as soon as possible using a tire pressure gauge. Inflate any low tires to the recommended pressure levels specified in your vehicle's owner's manual. If the light remains on after inflating the tires to the correct pressure, it may indicate a problem with the TPMS sensors or system that requires professional diagnosis and repair.
  • Do TPMS sensors need to be replaced when changing tires or wheels?

    TPMS sensors do not necessarily need to be replaced when changing tires or wheels, but they may require servicing or reprogramming to ensure proper functioning with the new setup. If the sensors are in good condition and compatible with the new tires or wheels, they can be transferred and reinstalled. However, if the sensors are damaged or not compatible, replacement may be necessary to maintain accurate tire pressure monitoring.
  • How often should TPMS sensors be serviced or replaced?

    TPMS sensors typically have a lifespan of 5-10 years or around 100,000 miles, but this can vary depending on factors such as sensor type, vehicle usage, and environmental conditions. It's a good idea to have TPMS sensors inspected during routine maintenance visits and replaced if they show signs of damage, corrosion, or malfunction. Additionally, TPMS sensor batteries may need to be replaced every 5-7 years, as they can degrade over time and affect sensor performance.
  • Can I recalibrate the TPMS system myself, or do I need to visit a professional service center?

    Recalibrating the TPMS system often requires specialized tools and procedures, so it's typically best to visit a professional service center for this task. However, some vehicles may have a manual relearn procedure that can be performed by the driver following specific instructions in the owner's manual. If you're unsure about how to recalibrate the TPMS system or if the light remains on after attempting a manual relearn, it's advisable to seek assistance from a qualified technician.
