What is TPMS?
TPMS stands for Tire Pressure Monitoring System. An electronic system that alerts a driver of either a low-pressure issue or system malfunction. System malfunctions can be catastrophic pressure changes through sensors failing. Usually the warning shows up on the dash of the vehicle as an icon, warning message or both.
Readings are provided by pressure sensing transmitters mounted on the inside of each tire and sent to a central computer (ECU) for display on the dashboard. Direct TPMS enables simultaneous detection of under inflation in any or all of the four tires.
