Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) alerts driver to low tire pressure in a specific tire. X07SP_CO019

Here at Lancashire’s Premier Garage, we are proud to now be able to offer a full TPMS (Tyre Pressure Monitoring Systems) Sensor Valve Service And Replacement service. Being one of very few garages with the correct programming equipment to carry out this service, we can assure you your car is in good hands.

The purpose of Tyre Pressure Monitoring Systems is to use four sensors, one in each tyre, to alert the driver if there is any change in pressure. This is usually displayed as either an audible or visual warning within your vehicle.

Fitting TPMS to your vehicle offers up vast improvements in to the overall safety of your vehicle, dramatically reducing the chance of a blow out or an accident influenced by incorrect tyre pressures by checking they’re correct every few seconds. TPMS is a great way of saving money, as having the correct tyre pressures works wonders for improving fuel efficiency and maximising tyre life.

Some newer vehicles have TPMS fitted as standard from the manufacturer. If this is the case with your vehicle, we will have to test the TPMS system as part of your MOT. What this means is that if your vehicle’s TPMS system is malfunctioning in any way, you could potentially fail your MOT.

Flat Tyre

If you don’t have a TPMS system on your car, fear not, for we at Alan Price Auto Services have the specialist skills and equipment to retrofit the system on other models.

The system is hugely beneficial and saves time by removing the need the routinely check your tyre pressures manually. It’s also a great early warning indication for a blow out or a slow puncture. This in turn will also save you money as driving with incorrectly inflate tyres causes uneven wear and tear, meaning the tyres will need to be changed more often. You may be surprised to know that EU estimates state that a brand new tyre will lose 3psi-8psi over a year which results in around a 2% increase in overall fuel consumption and a 25% reduction in tyre life.
