TPMS or Tyre Pressure Monitoring System works with dedicated TPMS sensors that track tyre pressure continually and relay the data to the car’s ECU. If the tyre pressure falls 25% below the recommended level, the TPMS warning light flashes on the car dashboard.
TPMS sensors are susceptible to damages due to various external factors like extreme temperatures, harsh external environment, etc. Damaged TPMS sensors are unable to track tyre pressures correctly and can jeopardise your on-road safety.
