As mother nature continues to exhibit her hold on our weather during the winter months, your dashboard may be lighting up. The radical changes in temperature outside directly effect the air pressure inside your tires. While the naked eye might not pick-up a low level pressure in a tire, your TPMS sensor will.
Monitoring our automotive systems and alerting us of potential hazards has come a long way with the advancement of technology. Warning symbols that resemble a top-secret sequencing code fill your dashboard today. Any chance you still have that secret decoder ring from your childhood?
One of the systems is the Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS). The TPMS system will warn you of a low-pressure issue with at least one of your tires. Low pressure in one or more of your tires creates an unsafe driving condition.
