What Does a TPMS Warning Light Mean?

Tire Pressure Monitoring System Features

Your TPMS automatically assesses your tire pressure, alerting you if the levels drop too low. Under-inflated tires can cause a variety of safety issues, including:

  • Excessive tire wear
  • Poor traction in inclement Aurora weather
  • Decreased load carrying capability
  • A flat tire or blowout

Wearing out your tires early is a costly mistake, forcing you to buy new tires before you’re ready. Paying attention to your TPMS will help save you money and prolong the longevity of your tires.

Proper Tire Inflation

Overinflated tires also cause issues, so keeping your tires at the recommended inflation is best. When your tires are at the correct levels, you will:

  • Reduce tread movement, increasing the life of the tire
  • Reduce rolling resistance, increasing vehicle efficiency
  • Increase water dispersion, decreasing hydroplaning

Check your owner’s manual to find your exact tire pressure levels. This, in addition to regularly rotating your tires, will save you a lot of money and stress in the long term, helping you enjoy your car for years to come.
