Why is my TPMS light flashing?
TPMS stands for Tire Pressure Monitoring System and is the system in your vehicle that monitors the tire pressure. If the light comes on solid, the tire pressure on your vehicle is low. When the light is flashing, there is a problem with one of the tire pressure sensors. Each tire has a sensor inside connected to the valve stem that has a battery. The battery on the TPMS sensor typically lasts 5 years.
When the battery on the sensor dies, it will no longer send a signal to your vehicle; this will cause the TPMS light to come on and flash. The technician will test each sensor to determine which one is failing. Once they know which sensor is failing, they will be able to break down the tire and replace the sensor.
