What to Expect from a Tire Pressure Monitoring System

What is a Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS)? It is a system that monitors the vehicle tire pressure by sensors located in the tires or by indirect sensing methods, such as wheel speed and other vehicle sensors.

This information is sent to a processor that sends an alert when the tire pressure is too low. Most vehicles use a direct system, in which a tire pressure sensor is in each tire. While sometimes the sensors are triggered by slight changes in tire pressure due to environmental temperature fluctuations, you should still check the tire pressure if the sensor light comes on.

TPMS is not designed to replace the need to regularly check your tire pressure, and you should still check your tires often. If you need your tires checked for pressure readings or require other tire services, our service center at Bolton Chrysler Jeep Dodge RAM is well able to handle all your vehicle service needs.
