Why would anyone present a car for MOT with warning lights on the dash, especially low tyre pressure warnings which is easily solved by adding air to the indicated tyre? 

 

Same goes for people that present them with failed bulbs, no washer fluid etc. 

 

Presenting a vehicle with these basic check faults should not only fail the MOT but the owner issued with a fixed penalty for failing to maintain the basics.

 

You fail to understand  you cannot take the light  out by adding air if battery in a sencor has gone  as   many will have due to them only lasting 5 or 6 years  going to be a major problem    soon . 99 ppercect of  m o t and  tyre places dont stock sencors  // So if you got a light on dash youre in bother  There is  a major car that has just pulled out of country  that its near impossible to get even a back bumper for expensive as well  //  now got only 3 service centres in britain one in glasgow one in leeds one in ireland   , //  i rang them and trird to get a back bumper they said  nearest amsterdam  cost  £450  BUY british now

My car doesn't use sensors for tyre pressure, it uses an average of the road difference (or something) over the 4 wheels. There are no actual sensors in  the wheels etc. If they it falls below a threshold the warning light comes on. Also wondering how this turned into a Buy British now rant? Many new main dealer parts like an entire bumper can quite easily cost several hundred pounds, it depends on the model and age usually.

I would think most tyre places will fit these. Hawleys certainly do - they did some for me recently.  They are around £80 to £90 each.

Indeed. Rather worrying that someone would drive around with such a light on without (a) checking their tyres and (b) getting the faulty sensor fixed, if its not working.

Lexus is a Toyota brand, not Nissan.

Nissan have never dealt with Lexus, they're owned by Toyota. 

As for Infiniti, I can cound on one hand how many I've seen in the last 10 years, so hardly a major brand.
