Under pressure to make money from TPMS?

How many TPMS customers do you miss out on?

TPMS systems have been made Law on all newly registered vehicles, but have been around for over 10 years on premium cars.

To ensure your customers TPMS system continues to operate properly and reduce the likelihood of an MOT failure, it may be necessary to have the system serviced occasionally. TPMS sensors are designed to last for many years and miles, however, after a certain period, the sensor’s internal battery will run out meaning a replacement is needed.

If you don’t offer TPMS Servicing and Diagnostics you will lose money

To put it simply it can’t be ignored… so your potential customer will have to go somewhere else, which means lost profit.

If you are under pressure to make money from TPMS, then the TPMS Warehouse can help.

How can the TPMS Warehouse help me?

Tyre Pressure Sensor Tips UK

Tyre Pressure Sensor – Safety Economy Performance

Maintaining  the TPMS prevents premature failure and ensures the safety, economy and performance of the vehicle are not compromised due to ignorance.

From Identifying TPMS to Correctly Servicing the system – read our top 5 UK TPMS tips here:

Top 5 TPMS Tips UK

sensor

1. Replacement TPMS

When dealing with replacing TPMS the best trick you can learn is how to diagnose the problem correctly first time every time. If the TPMS is faulty you can quickly clone the original and replace it in under 5 minutes using a universal programmable TPMS.  This means stocking just one sensor to suit almost every car or van.

2. Freeing Corroded TPMS

When the TPMS is seized due to corrosion it can be very difficult to remove without damaging the sensor. most tyre bays will force the stem and break the sensor, but often with a little penetrating oil such as WD-40 the stem can be worked loose without damaging the sensor, once removed the sensor can often be fitted with a new stem and service kit.

3. Relearn Procedures

When fitting new sensors or rotating the wheels on some vehicles the TPMS system may require a relearn procedure to be carried out – All our tools have relearn procedures built into the software so you can quickly resolve the situation and have the relearn procedure to hand.

4. Quickly Identify Vehicles with TPMS Sensors

Vehicles registered after November 2014 will all have a TPMS System. However some use an indirect method (via the ABS) – if the pressure is shown on the dash you can be sure there are sensors in the wheels as the indirect method is not that accurate. Tips for identifying that the vehicle has TPMS Sensors:

  • TPMS warning symbol on the dash during start-up.
  • Live tyre pressure displayed on the dash
  • Tyres can be scanned via TPMS Tool
  • If tyres have a rubber stem check to see if there is a bevel and the rubber coating stops before reaching the threads when the cap is removed.
  • If the tyres have a metal stem.

5. Correct service items must be used

Metal dust caps are to be avoided as they are the number one cause for premature failure, causing metal to metal corrosion. Another common cause for premature failure is the wrong valve cores being used, TPMS stems must use Nickel plated electro-less cores to prevent corrosion. Normal Copper and Brass valve cores must not be used.

Every time the tyre is removed from the rim follow the manufacturer guidance and use a service kit to service perishable items – they usually include a plastic cap, valve core, nut, seals and washers. If the stem is damaged either replace with a new stem or if a stem isn’t available replace the entire sensor.

Why it is important to look after the TPMS

The main thing to remember is preventative maintenance, this will ensure long service life and helping the vehicle owner save money in the long run.

Tyre rotations and repairs can cost money due to the TPMS but the benefits include higher fuel efficiency, better handling, extended tyre life and shorter stopping distances.

Maintaining  the TPMS prevents premature failure and ensures the safety, economy and performance of the vehicle are not compromised due to ignorance.
