What are the Maintenance Issues of TPMS?

1 minuteread


Maintenance Issues:

Below are the maintaining problems with TPMS:


Valve-Stem Corrosion:

First-generation TPMS sensors that are integral with the valve stem have suffered from corrosion. Metallic valve caps can become seized to the valve stem thanks to galvanic corrosion of dissimilar metals, and efforts to get rid of it can break the stem, destroying the sensor. The same fate may befall an after-market brass valve core inside the stem that will are installed by an unwary technician, replacing the initial specialized nickel-coated cores. (They are distinguished by the yellowish color of the brass.) Seizure of the valve can complicate the repair of a tire leak, possibly requiring replacement of the whole sensor.


Tire Sealant Compatibility:

There is controversy regarding the compatibility of after-market tire sealants with dTPMS that employ sensors mounted inside the tire. Some manufacturers of sealants assert that their products are indeed compatible, but others warned that the “sealant may are available in contact with the sensor during a way that renders the sensor TEMPORARILY inoperable until it’s properly cleaned, inspected and re-installed by a tire care professional”. Such doubts also are reported by others. The employment of such sealants may void the TPMS sensor warranty.
