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 will have to replace the TPMS sensor.

TPMS Wheel Sensors Missing Caused By A Dead Battery 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 Scanner
