Automotive Tire Pressure Monitoring System TPMS

What Is TPMS

TPMS is a tire air pressure monitoring system that is incorporated into your car, truck, van, suv, crossover, trailer or motorcycle. Virtually any vehicle with tires and wheels that uses air for inflation. The system is installed from the OEM factory or is retrofitted in the automotive aftermarket environment.

How TPMS Works

Wheel mounted sensors mounted on each of the tires transmits air pressure and temperature readings to the on board tire pressure monitor computer. The monitor computer then sends the information to a display on the dashboard of the vehicle. The display output can be real time numerical or low / high tire pressure warning light icon. Audible warnings can also be used.

Incorrect tire pressure will compromise cornering, braking and ride stability. Low tire pressure could lead to loss of control and a accident. Always check with your vehicles owners manual for the proper PSI. 2008 model year was the target date that the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) required all USA manufactured passenger cars and light trucks to feature a Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS).
