The Importance of Tire Pressure Monitoring
Significantly under-inflated tires pose a grave danger to you and your passengers, as well as affect the performance of your vehicle. The Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) serves as a warning device when one or more tires are under-inflated, thus increasing your safety on the road. The TPMS also helps reduce tires’ tread wear and prolong their life, allows for easier maneuvering, improves the braking efficiency, and saves you on fuel. Your vehicle may either have a Direct TPMS, or an Indirect TPMS. With a Direct TPMS, sensors located on the inside tire assembly send information about tire pressure to the vehicle’s computer. An Indirect TPMS measures tire pressure by way of the ABS or the Anti-lock Braking System, using speed sensors to monitor the rotational speed of each wheel. To decrease the incidents of road accidents, vehicles today are required to be equipped with a Tire Pressure Monitoring System. In order for your TPMS to operate at its optimal efficiency, regular checks and maintenance is a must.
Benefits of Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS)
With your vehicle’s Tire Pressure Monitoring System, you can know if your tires are inadequately inflated. The TPMS constantly monitors the air pressure in your tires. When there is low tire pressure, or when the air pressure in any of the tires falls below the maker’s recommended level, the TPMS senses this tire pressure drop and reports this critical piece of data by flashing the indicator light on the dashboard. You should then check your tire pressure, and inflate tire(s) to the proper level. Make TPMS maintenance service a regular part of your preventive maintenance program for your vehicle. You will save yourself a lot of headaches and money, and ensure your safety on the road all the time.
