The wise Auto Technician checks TPMS Sensor tires before Rotating.

This might be Model Year 2003 and Newer, but especially 2007 and Newer.

Today is September 2017.

Example , if the tires need to be Rotated, the Sensors require Re-Programming

for their new location.

If a Tire Pressure Monitoring Sensor is defective, the tire rotatin procedure

should not be  performed.

If a Tire Rotation is Approved, again ; the TPMS Sensors should be checked

before and after to make sure they are workin correctly before returning

the vehile to a Customer.
