Tire Pressure Sensor Repair in Hollywood, FL
The TPMS, or tire pressure monitoring system, is an important sensor inside of your vehicle which helps monitor tire pressure and alerts you when one or more tires are under inflated or over inflated. The TPMS sensors can fail over time, which will trigger your warning light to illuminate. This warning light will read as “TPMS”, and directly corresponds with a sensor issue. If you see a warning light that looks like a tire with an exclamation point inside, this is an indication that your tire pressure has fallen below or risen above 25% your vehicle’s recommended inflation pressure.
We invite you into Taverna European Auto Repair in Hollywood, FL as soon as you see your TPMS warning light illuminate. Our ASE certified technicians specialize in all makes and models of European luxury brands including Audi, Bentley, BMW, Jaguar, Land Rover, Maserati, Mercedes-Benz, Porsche, and Rolls Royce. Our professionals will determine any sensors that need to be replaced and will ensure that your tire pressure monitoring system works properly.
The TPMS sensors can fail for a number of different reasons, including impact or collision and low battery life. We do recommend getting any faulty TPMS sensors repaired as soon as possible so that your vehicle can properly monitor your vehicle’s tire pressure. Once we fix the sensors, we double check all of your tires’ pressure according to manufacturer specifications and reset your TPMS light.
Proper tire inflation is important for a number of reasons. When tires aren’t properly inflated, their lifespan can be dramatically reduced. This is because an under inflated tire can quickly wear and be at risk for blowouts. Over inflated tires can also lead to tire bulging and wear, which can cost you a new set of tires faster than you planned. Under inflated tires can also decrease your vehicle’s overall fuel efficiency, costing you more on fuel.
