TPMS (Tire Pressure Monitoring System)

TPMS Service in Steger, New Lenox, and Schererville

The tire pressure monitoring system (TPMS) warning light can often go unnoticed or even ignored since many consider it unimportant. However, maintaining proper air pressure in your tires is vital to both the drivability and safety of your vehicle. Low pressure in one or more tires can drastically impact the way your vehicle handles and lead to accidents. 

Checking tire pressure

TPMS systems come in two different varieties, direct and indirect. Direct TPMS uses a sensor within the tire itself to monitor exact air pressure, while an indirect TPMS uses relative wheel rotational speed between tires to determine whether the air pressure is adequate or not. 

So if you see a light that slightly resembles a horseshoe with an exclamation mark inside, don’t let it linger.
