What Does the TPMS Warning Light Indicate?

You're driving your car on the road when you suddenly get an alert - a light illuminates on your vehicle's dashboard that looks like the symbol above, or says "TPMS". Not many drivers understand what exactly this warning signal means, so let's take a deeper look at what exactly the TPMS light indicates what you should do next. 

TPMS stands for tire pressure monitoring system, which is what your vehicle uses to monitor your tire pressure. Tire pressure is super important when it comes to your safety on the road. Driving with under or over-inflated tires can not only cause your tires to wear down quicker and unevenly, but it can also put you at risk for a tire blowout the road. Tire blowouts can be scary, plus they cause damage to other components when they happen such as the wheels or rims. This is why it is super important to monitor tire pressure and get them filled properly. 

When the TPMS light turns on, chances are one of your tires has fallen below 25% of the recommended air pressure. Get this taken care of quickly to avoid tire damage and to protect your safety. However, the TPMS light can come on for another reason. It can indicate an issue with the monitoring system itself, usually due to a bad sensor. 

When you do see the TPMS light turn on, the best thing to do is bring your vehicle into Goose Automotive for an inspection. Our experts can take a look and check your tire pressure, including the spare, to make sure they are all at factory recommendations. If that doesn't do the trick, then we can look deeper at the system's sensors to see if the issue lies there. If your TPMS light is on, we invite you into Goose Automotive today!
