- Well, good for you. I've had nothing but problems with TPMS. So much so that this week I have someone coming to rip the poxy things out of the wheels, replace them with ordinary ones and disable to stupid car computer that, however much I spend on it and have it looked at, screws itself again after a few days!May 26, 2017

- Yep. Dismissed! Cutoff is cars registered on or after 1st January 2012. Already checked all that :-)May 26, 2017
- I work in a garage and I would say that they are a nuisance. Often they are not accurate and that are easilybroken when you change a tyre. Also I would say that not all new cars in the UK have them. Probably I see about 25% of new cars have themMay 26, 2017
- From 2014: "From November 1st, though, a new regulation in the UK will require drivers to have a new device fitted to their vehicle that will monitor tyre pressure constantly.
From November 1st, all new cars across the EU will be required to be fitted with a tyre pressure monitoring system (TPMS)."May 26, 2017
- well as I said . I have to repair alloy wheels because of my job and most of the wheels don't have the electronic valves fitted. They are a pain to be honest. Only last week a new Vauxhall Astra was saying that all the pressures were wrong .after checking with a calibrated pressure gauge they were in fact all ok. So the customer would have had wrong information. What's wrong with people checking there own tyres . people are getting lazy with everything concerning cars . For example self parking, automatically closing tailgates , etc etc . All this new technology is a nightmare for the people that have to repair it when it all goes wrong. Personally I have wind up Windows and I have central locking only because I fitted it myself. Simple is best for me .😊May 26, 2017
