Tire Pressure Monitoring System Sensor Set
The Tire Pressure Monitoring System Sensor Set includes the sensor and its associated parts. The TPMS sensor resides inside your car's wheels. Its main function is to ensure that there is no under-inflation in any of the tires, that is to ensure that the air pressure in all the tires is maintained at an optimum level. The sensor, which consists of a RF transmitter and a pressure transducer, transmits the pressure in each tire to the instrument cluster through a central monitoring unit.
The TPMS sensor valve stem acts a check-valve that regulates the air flow into the tire and closes when the tire pressure in the tire is correct. The TPMS sensor is attached to the valve and the suspended in the tire tubing. The Engine Control Unit (ECU) keeps a track of these sensors by assigning a serial number to each sensor. Therefore, along with pressure data, the sensor also transmits the serial number to the monitoring unit. This allows the control unit to correct interpret the data and identify the problematic tire.
Owing to their location, the TPMS Sensors are highly susceptible to damage. Faulty valve stems and caps can cause undesirable elements and debris to enter the tires. A damaged TPMS Sensor will fail to register a leak or flat tire, which can put both the vehicle and the driver at risk. You should replace a faulty sensor at the earliest. The sensor battery should also be checked regularly to prevent a possible failure of the sensor.
