Tire Pressure Monitoring System

What is the Tire Pressure Monitoring System? (TPMS)

Your automobile's tire pressure monitoring system is a system that monitors the air pressure inside your tires and alerts you with a check light if there is an issue. These systems are required in all automobiles made after the 2008 model year and have helped keep drivers aware of their tire health for many years. Unless you regularly check your tire pressure, it can be hard knowing if there is an issue as you may not visibly see an issue when looking at your tires. Your car's TPMS keeps you aware of any potential issues when driving in Oakville.

Things That Can Go Wrong With The TPMS

Your car's TPMS system can have various issues that can arise requiring servicing. One of the most common issues you'll need an expert to address is a bad TPMS sensor. Your TPMS sensors can be damaged by various things, including physical damage such as hitting a bad pothole in Belleville, hitting random road debris, severe weather, and the sensor itself simply wearing out due to age. A certified technician can replace a damaged sensor restoring your TPMS to normal functionality.

How Often Should The TPMS Be Serviced?

In general, you should have your TPMS sensors replaced every five to six years as they do wear out. You should also have your TPMS serviced whenever you think there may be damage, when you get new wheels, or when you replace the tires. A technician can also reset the system if necessary.

Is Driving With A Non-Functioning TPMS Dangerous?

Like many of your car's other safety systems, your tire pressure monitoring system helps keep you safe during routine drives to and from Waterloo. Low tire pressure can be dangerous as it not only increases wear on your tires but can also lead to random blowouts. Even in cases where a blowout doesn't cause an accident, a flat or damaged tire is still frustrating and often leads to you waiting for a tow truck. Plus, low tire pressure reduces fuel efficiency, which can lead to increased gas costs.
