A Mercedes-Benz may show TPMS Wheel Sensor Missing and dashed lines if the battery in one of the TPMS sensors is dead, the TPMS sensor is damaged, or the TPMS sensor is missing.
Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS)
TPMS helps us to travel safely and have a safe ride. From time to time, the battery of the TPMS sensor tends to discharge, and the sensor has to be replaced. The average battery life of a TPMS sensor is around 7-10 years. You can’t usually replace the battery itself, so you must replace the TPMS sensor.
These are some possible causes why the Mercedes-Benz TPMS light is on:
- Dead Battery Sensor
- Low Tire Pressure
- Defective Sensor
Solutions on how to remove the TPMS light on the vehicle’s instrument cluster:
- Replace the Battery of the TPMS Wheel Sensor
- Add Air Pressure on the Tire
- Replace the TPMS Wheel Sensor
- Drive for at least 15 minutes, and most Mercedes-Benz vehicles will detect the new sensor. If that fails, reset the TPMS Sensor using a YOUCANIC full system scanner.
