How do TPMS Sensors Work?

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.
