Q. On starting the vehicle a TPMS light comes on, but switches off after driving for a short time, What could this mean?
A. This could be that one or more of your tyre pressures are close to the low-pressure threshold. Overnight when your tyres are cold, the pressure will be at its lowest, which can bring the pressure either close to or below the 20% minimum pressure allowance – switching the TPMS warning light on. Once you start driving however, your tyres will warm up and the pressure will subsequently increase; turning the warning light off. Check your tyre pressures before you drive to make sure they are at the correct pressure.
Q. Can I fit TPMS myself?
This is not a plug and play sensor, replacement TPMS sensor installation and pairing requires certain level of knowledge and skills to perform the task.
