Tire Pressure Monitoring System TPMS

The Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) is system that automatically monitors the air pressure in a vehicle’s tires. When the air pressure sensed in one or more of the tires drops by 25 percent or more below the correct pressure, it turns on a warning light to alert the driver. These warnings usually are one of two types of warning symbols on the dashboard. One is a cross-section view of a tire. The other is a top down view of the car and its four wheels and indicates one or more tires that are out of the acceptable pressure range. At Dossett’s Garage we can properly calibrate and test these important sensors on your car.
