In 2007, the federal government mandated the use of TPMS sensors in newly manufactured cars. What are they? They are your “tire pressure monitoring system” keeps you informed about the pressure in each of your tires. Tire pressure is crucial for a safer ride as each year, tire pressure failure results in over 10,000 deaths or injuries, millions in damages and property damage as well as time lost at work.
In this closed system, TPMS works via batteries and the tire industry is warning us that between 5 and 7 years after you purchase your new car with TPMS, the batteries are going to die. Shortly, TPMS checks will be included in yearly NYS Inspections....very shortly like January 1st 2016. Battery(s) doesn't work? Failed inspections.
