DENSO Tire Pressure Monitoring System Sensors

Everything You Need to Know About TPMS and DENSO Sensors

Q:What is TPMS (Tire Pressure Monitoring System)?
A:TPMS warns you of unsafe changes in air pressure in one or more of your vehicle's tires. Readings from pressure sensing transmitters mounted inside each tire send information to a central computer for display on your dashboard.
Q:What does it mean when my TPMS indicator illuminates?
A:When the TPMS light comes on and stays on, it means that at least one of your tires is at a low pressure level. If the light flashes for approximately 60 to 90 seconds when you start your car and remains illuminated, it means that your TPMS system isn't functioning properly and you should take your vehicle to a service center for an inspection.
Q:What causes TPMS sensors to fail?
A:The most common cause of TPMS sensor failure is battery exhaustion. TPMS sensors have built-in batteries with a limited lifespan. When the battery fails, the entire sensor must be replaced.
Q:How difficult is it to replace TPMS sensors?
A:Because of their location inside your tire, there is simply no way to access and replace a TPMS sensor without the use of special equipment to remove, re-install and re-balance the tire. For this reason, we recommend you have a professional replace your sensors.
