Do you have a TPMS light warning? Easy Garage can help

From £45 per wheel at the time of the fitting to replace the whole complete TPMS sensor valve stem and components.
At Easy Garage, we use a new generation TPMS diagnostic & service tool specially designed to activate all known TPMS sensors, read TPMS sensor status, check TPMS system health condition, program MX-sensors and conduct TPMS relearn.
A sensor valve normally requires replacing after around 5 years or up to 100,000 miles, although this can vary depending on vehicle use. High mileages and frequent low-pressure alerts can reduce this considerably given the position of the sensor valves in the wheel and are also vulnerable to damage and corrosion meaning they would need to be replaced.


TPMS constantly monitors tyre pressures using tyre sensors in all four tyres and alerts the driver with a visual and audio warning if there is any change in pressure or temperature.

On most vehicles, TPMS works via a sensor valve fitted in each wheel which sends a low-frequency signal to the car’s ECU giving information on tyre pressures and temperatures. If the tyre pressure drops by more than a few pounds (PSI), the sensor valve is damaged battery has expired.

Having TPMS fitted to your vehicle improves your safety, the system checks tyre pressure every few seconds reducing your chance of a blowout or accident related to incorrect tyre pressures. TPMS can also save you money as having the correct tyre pressure maximises tyre life and also helps improve fuel efficiency.

New vehicles fitted with TPMS and registered from 1st January 2012 will also have their TPMS system tested as part of the first MOT test carried out. This means if your vehicle falls into this category and the TPMS is not functioning correctly, you could fail your MOT test.

The first Tyre Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) were equipped for premium vehicles in the early 1990s on models such as Mercedes S-Class, 7 Series BMW and the Audi A8. TPMS are now common fixtures in Peugeot and Citroen models with many other popular vehicles and estimated that by 2013, around 6 million cars in the UK are equipped with TPMS.

New EU legislation requires all new models of passenger cars sold in the EU to have a TPMS system installed from November 2012 and every new car from 2014. New vehicles fitted with TPMS and first registered from 1st January 2012 will have their TPMS system tested as part of the first MOT test the vehicle has carried out.

The legislation has been driven by environmental concerns as part of the EU’s commitment to reducing CO2 emissions, as well as safer motoring.

Data analysis shows that a new tyre will leak 3psi – 8psi over a year which results in around a 2% increase in fuel consumption and a 25% reduction in tyre life. The EU estimates that the under-inflation of tyres is globally responsible each year for:
  • 20 million litres of unnecessary fuel consumed
  • 2 million tonnes of CO2 emissions
  • 200 million prematurely worn tyres
  • 9% of accidents involving fatalities
  • 41% of accidents involving injury
