TPMS query

Post by Buffy » Thu Jun 25, 2020 4:27 pm

Hi

My car has a correctly functioning TPMS.

If I swap the wheels with tyres from front to rear , does it upset the TPMS system , and is it true that the dealership has to re-assign the wheel to the new location ?

Many thanks

Hi Steve

No it is fine to swap wheels/tyres over. I rotate mine every 6000 miles and it does not upset the TPMS system. If you go into the vehicle settings when you have swapped them round, just click on re calibrate and it sets them. Very occasionally you might have to do this a couple of times, but I've never had a problem. Also you might have to drive just a few miles for them to ping up correctly.

Cheers

Thank you for that answer.

Your advice was pretty much what I said to the dealer a few weeks back , hence my forum question.

Guess they just wanted more money on top of the service I paid for

Many thanks

Don't forget to change the air pressure in the tyre when you have changed them around 😀

Hi Steve

Bloody dealerships always after making a quick buck! When I took mine for a service last year, I told them that one of the key fobs wasn't working properly, so could they stick a new battery in it. They wanted to charge me £20 for a new key fob battery!! I told them to poke it, and bought one for about £1 and did it myself!

Good luck with them tyres!

Rotating tyres periodically is recommended by the manufacturer. It keeps tyre wear even and lasting longer. Mine are done every service at 10,000 km or around 6,000 mi. It's a wise investment and I'd rather them do it than me. :D
It's a good idea to check pressures and calibrate the TPMS regularly in any case.
