M O T New Rules T P M S

Recommended Posts

Hi got a fiesta  2015  due m o t      light on dash showing  T P M S    valves need renewing it will fail its test if light on dash.  Dealers want a fortune  to renew valves  can anybody take light off or  know of anybody to replace  tyre valves and stems at reasonable price.  My local tyre place just dont want to know wich is rediculous as its going to be a common thing in the future have the t p m s in tyres after 2015 to warn of low tyres.      Help

I've wondered about this. National Tyres  fit a 'TPMS service kit" to repair or extend the life of the valve.

Will send you a persons contact details.    Al you do is take fault code out but leave check code in

Isn`t this supposed to be a safety feature and could help save you and your passengers lives?

More of a convenience feature, it's just showing you the tyre pressure.  Saves you getting your hands dirty with a pressure gauge.

 

It'd notify you if your tyre went flat during a trip, but you should notice something like that while you're driving anyway.

It’s a load of rubish you spend more time looking at light wondering whilst it’s on when nothing wrong a money making exercise by dealers.

True it’s a danger light keep flashing nobody had any trouble before

Is this one of those MOT things like a spare tyre, where it's not a fail to have a missing spare tyre, but is a failure to have a worn or under-pressure spare tyre (so remove the spare tyre befoe the MOT)?

I’m sure spare is not testable.    Might be an advise if examining tester can see it. I.e it’s under car and not in boot area
