What is a TPMS sensor and how does it work?

A TPMS sensor is a component of the Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) that has been standard on vehicles produced since 2008. TPMS uses sensors located inside each wheel to continuously monitor the pressure in the tires. Data from the sensors is sent wirelessly to a computer control module. When the pressure falls below a designated threshold, the computer triggers a warning that appears on the dashboard display.

The sensors are mounted on the inside end of the valve stems where they measure the air pressure of each tire. The TPMS on some vehicles provides a constant visual display of the pressure in all of the tires, while the system on other vehicles only gives warning if they are low.


How do I know if a TPMS sensor needs to be replaced?

If one or more TPMS sensors fail, the computer control module will detect the problem and turn on the TPMS warning light to let you know. On occasion, a sensor can report incorrect tire pressure readings. If you notice a tire that appears flat or that registers a low pressure reading when measured manually with a tire gauge, but the dashboard display does not indicate the problem, the sensor could be faulty.

How is a a TPMS Sensor Replacement done?

To replace a TPMS sensor, a technician will need to raise and support your vehicle off of the ground and remove each tire needing service before performing the following steps:

  • Remove the valve from the valve stem to release air from the tire
  • Use a pneumatic tire machine to break the seal (the bead) of the tire from the wheel
  • Place the tire onto the tire machine and secure it in place
  • Use the machine to dislodge or demount the tire from the wheel
  • Unscrew the TPMS sensor from the back of the valve stem
  • Pull the valve stem from the wheel
  • Install a new sensor and valve stem kit in the wheel
  • Remount the tire, seat the bead against the wheel, and add air to seal the bead
  • Install the valve core and inflate to the proper tire pressure
  • Reset the TPMS with a digital scan tool
  • Most repair shops pair tire installation with tire balancing. When mounting and balancing, the technician will use a tire balancing machine to offset weight imbalances that naturally occur in the tire and wheel.

Other questions customers ask

What happens if you don't replace TPMS sensors?
If the TPMS sensors in your vehicle go bad, the system will not be able to alert you when a tire loses air pressure. The TREAD Act of 2000 was passed by Congress in response to a major recall of defective tires that created unsafe driving conditions. Multiple driver fatalities were the result of tire separation. One of the outcomes of the legislation was that all passenger cars and light trucks sold in the US from the 2008 model year and onward were to be fitted with TPMS to detect when a tire was going flat. Data has shown that TPMS is estimated to result in a nearly 56% reduction in the likelihood that a vehicle would have underinflated tires.
Can a tire shop replace a TPMS sensor?
Not only can a tire shop replace your TPMS sensors, they (along with most repair shops and technicians) recommend servicing the TPMS when having new tires installed. But tire shops are not the only places that you can have the TPMS system serviced on your vehicle. Any qualified technician with access to the proper equipment can replace a TPMS sensor and reset the system.
Do I need to replace my TPMS sensors when I get new tires?
You do not need to replace the TPMS sensors when you purchase new tires. That said, new tires present a perfect opportunity to have the TPMS serviced, including installation of new sensors if needed. That is because your tires need to be removed, at least in part, in order to access the sensors inside the wheel. With the same equipment used to replace your tires. And when you have your TPMS sensors replaced, it is wise to also have your tires balanced to ensure that they continue to spin true, just as you would with new tires.
