The role of Mercedes TPMS sensor
TPMS is a warning system for problems related to the air pressure of a car tire, where pressure is known to be a decisive factor in the process when operating the vehicle. If the pressure is not up to the standard, it will cause many problems with the engine and fuel consumption. Therefore, TPMS becomes an effective control and warning arm for this process. In addition, TPMS also has the following roles:
- Improving the life of car tires
- Limiting the risk of a tire explosion.
- Environmentally friendly when limiting CO2 into the environment.
It can be seen that the TPMS device is a system that optimizes the air pressure problems in the tires. However, there are still many users who want to disable this feature. So what is the reason? Find out below.
Why disable TPMS on the Taplo display?
For most luxury cars like Mercedes today, TPMS is almost a must-have system in the car. Although with its functions, it helps users to recognize the tire problems that they are facing to conduct timely troubleshooting. However, many people want to disable it, for the following reasons:
- There are warnings given even when there is no such problem: a warning is given that one of your tires is having an air pressure problem (non-standard pressure) but in fact then there’s no problem.
