What Does TPMS Mean?

Technician Filling Up Car Tire

What does TPMS mean? TPMS is short for Tire Pressure Monitoring System, a relatively new feature that can help you optimize performance and drive more safely on the roads near Jackson and Brandon. Some TPMS lights will flash, while others will simply stay lit. Either way, the system has determined that your tires are either underfilled or overfilled.

What Does the Tire Pressure Monitoring System Do?

You’ve answered the question, “What does TPMS mean?” Are you still wondering how the Tire Pressure Monitoring System works? It’s actually quite simple! Each tire on your vehicle has a sensor in it which reads the air pressure and sends a signal to your main computer. This includes you spare tire, if you have one.

If the light comes on, or is flashing, it means that your tires either need more air, or are too full to function properly. Simply deflate them as necessary, or add more air at the pump!

Why Is It Important to Check My TPMS?

Many drivers in the Ridgeland region don’t give that much thought to their tires, but they should! After all, these deceptively simple components can have a major impact on your performance, and your safety.If your tires fall below their recommended air pressure, you could experience:

  • A more rapid rate of tire wear
  • Worsening traction, even in good weather
  • Lower load capacities for both towing and payload

By the same token, you’ll enjoy significant benefits if you keep your tires at the proper air levels. These include:

  • A longer tire lifespan
  • A more efficient drive
  • Better handling and response time
  • Lower risk of hydroplaning

I think My TPMS is Malfunctioning. How Do I Know for Sure?

If you take good care of your tires, but your TPMS light keeps coming on, what can you do to solve the problem? First, you should check to see if wear on your tires is causing them to lose air pressure more quickly than they otherwise would. If your tires are due for a change, you might have a hard time getting your TPMS to stay off. Don’t forget to check your spare tire!

If your tires are newer, or in good condition, then it might be tough to answer the question, “What does my TPMS mean?” It’s best to schedule a visit with our Brandon service center.
