Why Your Tire Pressure Monitoring System Warning Light is On

Properly inflated tires are critical for a smooth ride through Brunswick, OH and the longevity of your car itself. Fortunately, if your car was manufactured after September 2007, it is equipped with a Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS). Integral tire sensors report pressure changes, potentially triggering the TPMS warning light for underinflation.

Underinflation has more causes than punctures and tears. Every month, for instance, tires lose approximately 1.5 pounds per inch (psi) of pressure. For every 10 degrees the temperature drops, tire pressure can drop an additional 1 psi.

Since TPMS is so critical to your safety and comfort, you need to be sure it’s working correctly. If you have questions or want to have it checked, give Brunswick Mazda a call. We’d be glad to help you keep your TPMS in tip-top shape.
