Replacing or Rotating TPMS Sensors

The Tyre Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) is an essential safety feature in modern vehicles.

TPMS sensors continuously monitor the pressure in each tyre and alert drivers when a tyre's pressure falls below the recommended level. But what about replacing them? Here we look at some common questions.

Can you rotate tyres with TPMS sensors?

Yes, you can rotate tyres with TPMS sensors.

However, after rotating the tyres, the system may need to be reset to ensure accurate readings.

Can I replace just 1 TPMS sensor?

Yes, you can replace just one TPMS sensor.

It is recommended to replace all sensors at the same time however - since they have a similar lifespan.

Can you swap TPMS sensors?

Yes, you can swap TPMS sensors.

If you choose to do this, the system may need to be reprogrammed to ensure accurate readings. A mechanic would be able to help with this.

Do you need to replace TPMS with a new tyre?

No, you do not need to replace TPMS with a new tyre.

The most common causes for requiring the replacement of a TPMS is when your system is either damaged, or the valves are old and have suffered corrosion.

When to replace a TPMS system?

The TPMS system does not need to be replaced unless it is not functioning properly or damaged.

However, the sensors have a typical lifespan of 5-7 years and may need to be replaced after this period.

How much to fix or replace TPMS sensor?

The cost of fixing or replacing a TPMS sensor varies depending on the make and model of the vehicle and the type of sensor needed.

On average, the cost can range from around £40 - £100 per sensor, including installation.
