What does it stand for? 

Tyre Pressure Monitoring System. 

What does it do? 

It monitors the pressure inside of your tyres and then if there is a loss of pressure in any of the tyres it will inform the driver on the dashboard.

How does it do this? 

There is two ways this is done, either indirectly or directly. 

The indirect system sends a signal from the wheel hub via the ABS to the dashboard, only when the vehicle is moving & the tyre has low pressure. It does this by measuring the rolling circumference of the wheel. A flat tyre has a smaller rolling circumference than an inflated tyre.

The direct system sends a signal directly from the valve to the dashboard as soon as there is  a loss of pressure. This method is far more accurate but care must be taken not to damage the sensors when tyres are removed/fitted. Also this system works via a small sealed battery, which means the sensor has to be replaced when the battery is low. 

At A2 Tyres we have an extensive stock of replacement sensors for all your TPMS needs.
