What Does TPMS Mean?

TPMS Light on Dash


What does TPMS mean? Your TPMS, or Tire Pressure Monitoring System, uses tire pressure sensors to observe the air pressure in each of your tires. If one or several of your vehicle’s tires are below or above the recommended pressure, the TPMS warning light will activate. Many new Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep, Ram vehicles, such as the Chrysler Pacifica and the Dodge Challenger have these notifications appear on the dashboard. Find out more about how your vehicle’s tire pressure monitoring system keeps you safe on Devine roads with the experts at Brown Dodge Chrysler Jeep Ram below! 

Why Is Your Tire Pressure Monitoring System Important?

Now that you know what TPMS means, it’s important to break down why your TPMS is so critical to your vehicle’s performance. Your tire pressure monitoring system tracks the air pressure in your tires and notifies you when it drops below the recommended threshold. This notification may appear as the illuminated letters “TPMS” or as a flat tire with an exclamation mark in the center. If your tires are underinflated, you’ll want to fill them up as soon as possible. Poorly inflated tires can result in the following: 

  • Poor fuel economy
  • A flat tire or blowout
  • Decreased load carrying capabilities
  • Reduced traction

Benefits of Proper Tire Inflation

As mentioned before, your tire pressure monitoring system will alert you when your tires are either under or over-inflated. A properly inflated tire will: 

  • Increase water dispersion which decreases the likelihood of hydroplaning
  • Reduce rolling resistance which will increase vehicle efficiency
  • Reduce tread movement thereby increasing the longevity of your tires

Is your tire pressure monitoring system light flashing? Are you in need of immediate tire inflation? As a Castroville-area driver, you have a few options available to you: 

  • If you need a little more air in your tires right away, you can always use a bike pump.
  • You can take your vehicle to our Brown Dodge Chrysler Jeep Ram Service Department for full tire service.
  • Many Uvalde-area gas stations have tire filling areas separate from the fuel pumps.
