VIDEO: Servicing TPMS Sensor Kits On Tire Replacement
Andrew Markel, from Babcox Media, explains why servicing TPMS sensors is important during tire maintenance and tire replacement.
“Not servicing the TPMS kit when you sell a new set of tires is like changing the oil on a car and not changing the oil filter, but with some significant safety implications… The average set of tires can last on a vehicle anywhere in between 30,000 to 50,000 miles and even more in some cases. When that tire is worn and needs to be replaced if the technician does not service the sensor, that TPMS sensor is forced to go another 30,000 to 50,0000 miles.
“These items are perishable. In other words, they can corrode, crack and eventually cause a leak in the tire and cause an inflation problem. So, every time that you’re installing a new tire, or you’re removing the tire from the rim, you need to be servicing the sensor. It may be another 30,000 to 50,000 miles before the sensor is serviced again. This is why you need to service it every time because you don’t know how long that next set of tires will last.”
