TPMS Batteries

A direct TPMS comes with sensors that require batteries to function. Over time these may stop working and require replacement.

How long do TPMS sensors last?

TPMS sensors are designed to last for several years, but the lifespan of a sensor can vary depending on a number of factors, including the model of sensor, how often they are used and the conditions in which they are used.

On average, most TPMS sensors will last anywhere from 5 to 10 years before they need to be replaced.

How long do TPMS batteries last?

The lifespan of a TPMS battery will depend on the type of sensor you have and the conditions in which it has been used.

In general, most TPMS batteries can last for around 5 to 10 years before a replacement is required.

Some sensors may have shorter battery life due to factors such as high temperatures or frequent use.

Can TPMS batteries be replaced?

Yes - in most cases TPMS batteries are replaceable.

However, it is important to note that not all sensors are designed to be serviced. Some tyre pressure monitoring system sensor require replacement when they have been used.

If issues begin to occur when using your TPMS, the best course of action is to have a professional diagnose the problem - and determine the best solution. Be that repair or replacement.
