Explains TPMS -Tire Pressure Monitoring Systems Video - Pep Boys
TPMS, or Tire Pressure Monitoring Systems, alert you if you have unsafe air
pressure in any of your tires. These monitors are installed in your wheels,
and alert you through a symbol on the dashboard that looks a little like a
In 2007, the Federal TREAD act (or Transportation Recall Enhancement,
Accountability and Documentation) began requiring all new cars and light
trucks come equipped with TPMS. This legislation, like that requiring air
bags, helps to keep you safe on the road.
The TPMS sensors are located inside each of your wheels. The sensors send a
radio frequency signal to the vehicle onboard computer, which will
illuminate a light on your dashboard if your tire pressure were to become
If you see that light activate and stay on, you'll want to pull over and
check that your tires are okay. It's a good idea to carry a digital air
pressure gauge for checks like these. As long as your tires are safe, you
can drive on to a shop and have the air topped off. If the tire is
punctured or flat, you can change it or call Tow to Pep. (1-800-PEP-BOYS)
Driving on underinflated tires is dangerous. They create friction, heat up
and can blow out while you're driving -- this causes thousands of accidents
every year. Seventy-five percent of all roadside flats are caused by
under-inflation. Underinflated tires also waste money. They lower your fuel
efficiency up to 10 miles for every fill-up, costing money each time you go
to the pump. Underinflated tires also degrade faster, sending you to the shop for a big
ticket purchase earlier than necessary.
If the light comes on and starts flashing, that means one or more of your
sensors can't accurately measure your air pressure. It's probably due to a
low battery. The sensor battery life is about 5 to 7 years. Once the TPMS
battery dies, the sensor itself needs to be replaced.
When you come to Pep Boys for your TPMS, we have everything you need, so
you don't need to make a trip to the dealer. We replace all four sensors at
the same time, since if one has a dead battery; the others are going to
We know replacing TPMS sensors is an investment, but it's one that
ultimately keeps you safe and saves you money. If you stop by Pep Boys,
there are four things we can do for you:
1. Check your tire pressure and adjust your air. We'll always do that for
2. We can diagnose what might be wrong with your tires.
3. We can replace your sensors.
4. And we can "relearn" your TPMS -- basically, we reboot the system so it
can make an accurate read.
It's our promise to you that we will keep you safe and keep your tires

*This video is an EXPERIMENT I wanted to try on my car, and is for
INFORMATIONAL purposes ONLY. This fix is for off-road use. The content
shown in this video is not intended to encourage emissions test cheating.
I enjoy the process of testing theory because you always learn something
new, regardless of the outcome.
Using a spark plug defouler kit, I install a "buffer" in between the
downstream oxygen sensor and the catalytic converter. Quite often,
frustrated car owners get the P0420 code for reasons other than a bad cat.
I have heard of people getting the code just because they removed the
converter and reinstalled it. It can also happen if you run your vehicle
out of gas etc... etc...
It is also common for car owners to get the P0420 code, replace the
converter, and both o2 sensors-- only to have the code come back after 1000
miles or so. This can be a very frustrating, time consuming and of
course-- expensive venture. Here is one way to resolve the issue. Good
luck and have fun!
