Tire Pressure Monitoring System Guide
Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) Sensors typically need to be replaced for one of the following three reasons:
• Battery Life – Estimated life of 5 to 7 years or 75k to 100k miles
• Damage – Caused by accidents, pot holes, etc.
• Corrision – Typically caused from road salt (cold weather climates) or galvanic corrosion
Note: It typically makes sense to replace all sensors at once when one battery fails since all of the batteries have similar life spans.
Should I replace my TPMS sensor when replacing my tire?
• If the new set of tires is expected to cross over the TPMS battery threshold outlined above, consider replacing the TPMS Sensors now to avoid tire mounting fees.
• Keep in mind, TPMS manufacturers recommend using OEM components to insure trouble-free programming operation and long life.
