& Tested

TPMS Outlet's sensors are manufactured and tested on a fully- automated, environmentally-controlled production line. Produced in dedicated OE environments, all TPMS Outlet products are tested to international certification standards.


TPMS Outlet sensors are manufactured then tested on a fully -automated, environmentally- controlled production line. This meticulous process and the manufacturing of tyre valves are recognised by TÜV Süd (one of the world’s leading technical service providers of system certification) as Quality Management Systems that fulfil the requirements of IATF 16949.

TPMS information

Tyre Pressure Monitoring Systems (‘TPMS’) are used to check and monitor the air pressure inside a vehicle’s tyres. They are designed to enhance vehicle safety and efficiency, using a system that alerts the driver when tyre pressure falls below the minimum value for the vehicle by displaying an alert on the dashboard. These systems can be either Direct or Indirect, depending on the vehicle.
The EU introduced laws concerning TPMS in 2012, with the aim of increasing road safety on our roads, as well as to help combat global warming and lower CO2 emissions.
If the “low tyre pressure” warning light appears on your dashboard when the ignition is turned on, your vehicle will have TPMS installed. See direct vs indirect system. A quick way to check. Can you see the tyre pressure in each individual tyre? Yes, Your vehicle is more than likely fitted with TPMS valves. No, Your vehicles TPMS system is likely to function via the braking system (see direct v indirect) Input your details into our search fields to check compatibility.
There are two different types of low tyre pressure warning lights on vehicles. One icon is the cross-section of a tyre with an exclamation mark inside. The other is a top view of a car with all 4 tyres exposed. If your TPMS warning light comes on while driving, find a safe place to stop your vehicle where you can manually check your tyre pressures against the vehicle manufacturer’s recommended settings. These can be found in your vehicle handbook, inside the fuel filler flap or on a placard located on the driver’s door sill.
OE Sensors are ‘Original Equipment’ sensors, from the same manufacturer that built the sensors for the vehicle when it was assembled. These sensors are supplied pre-programmed, with a single vehicle protocol from the factory. Aftermarket Sensors are replacements for the vehicle’s Original Equipment sensors. This includes OE replacement (OE-R) sensors, cloneable sensors, configurable sensors, multi-application sensors and programmable sensors.
Direct TPMS sensors are physically mounted onto the wheel rim and measure each tyre’s individual air pressure. When this falls below the manufacturer’s recommended level, the sensor transmits this information to the car’s on-board system and triggers the TPMS warning light on the dashboard. Indirect TPMS is an integrated system that uses the vehicle’s Antilock Braking System (ABS) to monitor and compare the rotation speed of the wheels. If a tyre’s pressure is low, it will rotate at a different rate to the other tyres - this is then detected by the vehicle’s computer system, which activates the TPMS warning light on the dashboard. Indirect systems are widely viewed as being less accurate and less reliable than Direct TPMS.
Increases safety – According to road safety reports, incorrect tyre pressure in vehicles typically accounts for 9% of fatal accidents and 41% of accidents involving injury in the UK. Properly inflated tyres results in shorter, more reliable breaking distances, and reduces the risk of tears in the tyre surface or tyre blow-outs. Saves fuel – The EU states that under-inflation of tyres accounts for 20 million litres of additional fuel consumed globally each year. Driving on properly inflated tyres ensures that a vehicle’s fuel consumption is as low as possible, and consequently saves money that would otherwise be spent on fuel. Environmentally friendly – It is estimated that due to increased fuel consumption, 2 million tonnes of CO2 emissions are released into the atmosphere annually. By using TPMS and reducing fuel consumption, this helps to limit the amount of carbon emissions that your vehicle releases.
As of 1st January 2015, an inoperative or faulty TPMS sensor can cause an immediate MOT failure. EU legislation means that any car manufactured from 2012 onwards will automatically fail an MOT test, if the TPMS warning light is displayed on the dashboard.

Asked Questions

Please use our Vehicle Look-Up Tool to check for your car’s compatible sensors
All manufacturers recommend that when a tyre fitted with TPMS is removed, the sensor valve is serviced or replaced. This is because the valves are subjected to chemicals and road salt during the winter, and are affected by metal fatigue over time. Please note warranty conditions are invalidated by failure to service valve after re-inflation.
This could mean a sensor is damaged or the battery has expired. It could also be the result of an extreme weather change – occasionally if the weather is very cold, this can cause a drop in tyre pressure (while heat can cause a slight increase in pressure).
TPMS valves need to be installed by a professional tyre fitter.
Another word for reset pretty much. Each individual valve is programmed specifically for your vehicle so If you replace the valves at any point the car needs to be reset to 're-learn' the new codes and attribute them to each corner of the car. There are 2 ways of completing the re-learn and are different procedures depending on the manufacturer. Auto Relearn, Car will automatically look for new codes after you have selected the 'Reset TPMS' option in the cars on board display. OBDII Relearn, Can be completed by most tyre outlets and involves plugging into the cars on board computer to manually reset the system. All orders are supplied with full re-learn instructions
