How the Tire Pressure Monitoring System Works

As important as it is to check the tire pressure on your vehicle regularly, today’s newer cars come equipped with a Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) to do the work for you. If you have questions on how the TPMS works or would like your tires checked, stop at Palm Springs Kia and let our certified technicians help.

Understanding how the TPMS works can help you understand if your air pressure is good. The TPMS monitors the air pressure through the use of sensors that send messages to a processor. The processor sends a message to the warming lamp. If air pressure isn’t what it should be, the lamp will light up to alert you of incorrect air pressure.

If your tires haven’t been holding air or the TPMS seems to malfunction, pay service center a visit in Cathedral City and let us check things over. We’ll have you back on the road in no time.
