Volkswagen Tire Pressure Monitoring System Service

Tire Pressure Monitoring System Service at Suntrup Volkswagen

The tire pressure monitoring system, or TPMS, in your vehicle is designed to provide constant monitoring of your tire pressure and warn you when it is reaching low levels. By offering information to you quickly, the TPMS can help you avoid a drop to critically low tire pressure that necessitates an emergency tire change. The system in your Volkswagen monitors your tire pressure through a network of sensors. If one of your sensors malfunctions, we can assist with a replacement at Suntrup Volkswagen in St. Louis. We are also ready to help with a full range of tire-related issues.

Tire Pressure Monitoring System Basics

Every tire in your vehicle features a TPMS sensor. It is located at the rim area and inside the tire. As you operate your vehicle, the sensor is constantly monitoring the pressure and sends a notification to the vehicle’s computer when a low-pressure threshold is reached. The sensors rely on recommended tire pressure for your vehicle. Your computer notification typically appears in the dash panel and most systems report which tire is at low pressure and the current pressure of the tire.

TPMS Issues on Your VW

Your TPMS can experience short-term issues. Because the system relies on relays through the charging system, any reset of the system or complete power deficit, such as one caused by a battery disconnection, may temporarily reset the data. The TPMS also uses a flat measurement of tire pressure to display warnings, so any purposeful or short-term low-pressure situation still triggers a warning. It’s always important to keep your tires at the appropriate air pressure outside of a repair situation, so pay attention any time the warning displays. Additional problems can be caused if an individual sensor is damaged or quits working due to a battery failure, corrosion or a physical problem.

Volkswagen TPMS Service Schedule

Your TPMS provides a warning when a sensor goes down. This may display as a standard tire warning or a specific message regarding a sensor issue. When you feel your tires are okay, but a warning light is displayed, double-check your digital menus for additional details and manually check your inflation with an air pump. If all is well, a sensor may need to be replaced.
