TPMS and NYS Inspection Sign In

hi guys a couple months ago one of my TPMS sensors broke off and my tire pressure light has been on my dash ever since. I was wondering will my car pass New York state inspection with this light on thanks for your help. It is an 08 dodge magnum

I'm not familiar with NY state inspection guidelines. All I can tell you is that is a safety system that is malfunctioning. If I had to guess I would say that it wouldn't pass.

Most sensors are around $100 give or take plus with it was working properly you would know if you had a tire pressure problem....

Laugh - I found a site that specifies what will or won't reject your car and tire pressure was NOT listed for NY.

">>
Tires
(Except spare)
  • Tread depth - must be at least 2/32 inch when measured in two adjacent major tread grooves showing the most wear
  • Tire condition - check for any fabric break or cut over the length or width of 1 inch, visible bumps, bulges or knots, and any restricted use designation on the tire
  • Tire pressure - You will be informed if the vehicle's tire pressure in not within the manufacturer's recommendation. This is an advisement only, and not cause for rejection.<<"

Site is not state owned and un-official but listed all US states!

Going off that info it looks like it should pass. (or at least not fail due to the TPMS light on)

I even looked for an "any warning light" on clause and didn't see any. The only warning light it looks like they are concerned with is the SES.

I would have thought MA and CA would be the toughest but it still varies state by state. Here, at last check you can fail for inoperative windshield washers even if it's just out of fluid! In Maine you can fail if tires aren't speed rated for that specific car even if new!

MA any car must pass the safety checks - basics. ABS light on won't fail you. 96 (OBDII) and up must connect or it's a fail! They no longer check emissions here pre OBDII unless it's billowing smoke or something.

Speaking for here they change the rules constantly! I like the idea of the tire pressure warning light BUT you can buy a set of tire caps that tell you the pressure by color for $5 bucks - just do a walk around and look. I can't speak for every place as it changes so much. They do NOT pull wheels off here as too many weren't tightened right or hurt VERY expensive wheels so that ended that. They still better feel ok as they do take the car from you to check it.

This stuff is still very specific to each state. That site if up to date seems like it's helpful to know current regulations and rules for a legit inspection sticker............
