Winter Tyres & TPMS

Winter Tyres & TPMS

 

The time to change to and from summer and winter tyres is both a geographical and personal decision. Whenever this time maybe it requires a decision to purchase or not to purchase a second set of wheels which also needs to be followed up with the question.

 

“DO I NEED A SECOND SET OF TPMS?”

 

At TPMS Warehouse we strongly recommend installing a second set of sensors in your Winter Wheels whether this be cloned sensors* for vehicles which need this option or if your vehicle has the option for a second set of TPMS already installed in the ECU.

 

** We can clone your original sensors with a unique identification number to avoid costly diagnostic costs whenever you change from summer to winter wheels **

 

Of Course, there are customers tempted to disable this safety feature, which is potentially life threatening. It has multiple benefits for example:

  • Increased fuel economy
  • Decrease in tyre wear
  • Reduced environmental impact

 

For a set of winter wheels, we recommend a Rubber snap in valve as this offers further protection against the road salts which can cause the Aluminium valve stems to corrode.

*Speak to one of our sales team to see if we have a rubber valve compatible with your vehicle for this option*

What causes the TPMS warning light to be on?

A number of different factors can cause the TPMS warning light to come on.

warning

The TPMS warning light illuminates if a tyre is detected to be under-inflated by 25% or more. Other factors that may cause the light to come on are listed:

• hitting a curb
• running over a pot-hole
• TPMS corrosion
• high/low external temperatures
• low or depleted TPMS battery life
• improper TPMS installation / TPMS Missing

Many factors affect the pressure in your tyres, and that is why it is so important to be aware of your tyre pressure and regularly inspect the wheels on your vehicle. tyre pressure can be affected due to tyre damage, slow leaks, changes in temperature and from normal daily driving. A drop in temperature of 10 degrees fahrenheit will result in a loss of 1 PSI.

Most vehicle manufacturers install a tyre information label – typically located on the fuel door, drivers door frame, sill or edge. Tyre pressure should be set to this recommendation whilst cold, before driving.

You may find further recommendations from your vehicle manufacturer in the handbook, owners manual or website.

Winter Tyres

If you have recently installed winter wheels and your TPMS Light has illuminated:

  • Check TPMS sensors have been installed
  • Carry out the specified relearn procedure for the vehicle

If you haven’t fitted TPMS to your winter wheels and are looking for the right TPMS call us or shop online.

Cloning Missing Sensors

When your sensors are missing and you have been advised we need to cloning the originals, you may be thinking this is impossible.

However all may not be lost….

  • The ID for each sensor will be stored on the vehicles ECU
  • You will need to get the codes via specific diagnostic equipment
  • Contact your local diagnostics specialist or dealer and enquire if they can retrieve the ID’s for you.
  • Once the ID’s have been retrieved check which wheel they are assigned to
  • include this information with your order to TPMS Warehouse

Cloning

We can then supply your complete cloned sensor pre-programmed to the vehicle using the ID’s you provided.

Chat with us or call us if you need any help on 01254 301021

Schrader TPMS 90-Degree Stem option

A tyre pressure monitoring system (TPMS) sensor with 90-degree stem options has been developed for the Schrader Performance Sensors EZ-sensor product line.

Schrader Performance Sensors says the new 90˚ EZ-sensor is the only TPMS sensor that properly fits into aftermarket wheel applications with 90-degree valve holes.

The company plans to offer the new 90˚ EZ-sensor in mid-2018. The sensor will accommodate two stem types, a straight valve and a bent valve to adapt to even more rim types. The aluminum stems will be offered in silver and matte black colors.

The new 90˚ TPMS sensor features the same technology and benefits as Schrader’s EZ-sensor. This patented, programmable technology combines 314.9, 315 and 433 MHz into a single, programmable sensor. The company says the new 90˚ EZ-sensor is OE quality and future-proofed to accommodate new and pending OE technology, like auto-location.

Sensor Service Kits ahead of the Winter months

With the weather getting colder, some motorists are now changing over to Winter tyres, meaning a considerable amount of TPMS sensor valves will require servicing. This creates the opportunity to bring in more business for garages and servicing centres – and as more and more new cars on the road are fitted with TPMS, this number is increasing every year.

Most manufacturers recommend that whenever a tyre fitted with TPMS is removed, the sensor valve is serviced or replaced, in order for the sensor to last as long as possible. This is because the valves are subjected to chemicals and road salt during the Winter and are affected by metal fatigue over time. Servicing valves extends the life of TPMS sensors and avoids the unnecessary costs associated with replacement. By maintaining the functionality of the sensor, this ultimately saves money by increasing fuel economy and improving vehicle performance, road handling and safety. A TPMS sensor itself can last for around 5-7 years, but servicing the valve instead of replacing the sensor is an economical alternative.

Some sensors have rubber ‘snap-in’ valves which need to be completely replaced when tyres are changed, however the majority of sensors on the market are equipped with metal ‘clamp-in’ valves, which are capable of being serviced to maintain their efficiency. When servicing metal TPMS valves, the outer collar, core, cap and the rubber grommet are replaced.

For this purpose, TPMS manufacturers, TPMS Warehouse, offer a complete range of replacement parts and service kits, covering almost 100 per cent of the OE market. Our Starter Kits offer a selection of all the most popular sensor service parts within the European TPMS market, and are therefore our recommendation for every tyre bay or garage business. All of the individual service kits or valves from the Starter Kits can be reordered in boxes of 10.

How do TPMS Sensors Work?

TPMS Systems

TPMS Warehouse TPMS Systems

Every sensor has a unique identification that it transmits to a receiver via wireless remote frequency at 433 MHz (euro standard). The receiver then transmits the data to the controller allowing the information to display to the driver.
They are powered by an internal battery; this battery cannot be replaced. The battery life is expected to last up to 5-7 years’ dependent on annual mileage. To save energy the sensor doesn’t transmit data unless it is rotating, which also prevents the spare tyre from being monitored.  With every transmission of data, the sensor will also send a battery state signal, which workshop tools can use to diagnose a low battery.

What If My TPMS Light illuminates on my dash?

Do My TPMS Sensor Needs Replacing

Do My TPMS Sensor Needs Replacing

If the TPMS warning light is illuminated on your vehicle’s dashboard it will usually indicate a pressure drop in one or more of the vehicle’s tyres & needs immediate attention, however if the light is on due to sensor malfunction, usually due to battery failure, or physical damage, then the sensor will require replacement, use our vehicle search facility or contact one of our team for help finding the correct replacement.
Installing the replacement sensor will require tyre removal by a professional tyre fitter, the old sensor removing and the replacement sensor fitting correctly to the manufacturer’s specifications.
After fitting the sensor will require pairing with your car, the pairing procedure can usually be found in the vehicles handbook alternatively use our vehicle lookup or call a member of staff. The relearn procedure may be as simple as driving the car for a few miles, alternatively your vehicle may require dealer level programming and will incur additional installation costs, however this cost can be avoided by cloning the replacement sensor to the old sensor thus creating an exact copy, usually all we need is a number printed on your old sensor so don’t throw it away just yet, cloning would be done prior to shipping ask one of our team for details.
