TPMS (Tyre Pressure Management System)

At Dessie’s Tyres we can resolve this issue quickly and get you driving in no time!

The purpose of the tyre pressure monitoring system (TPMS) in your vehicle is to warn you that at least one or more tyres are significantly under-inflated, possibly creating unsafe driving conditions. The TPMS low tire pressure indicator is a yellow symbol that illuminates on the dashboard instrument panel in the shape of a tire cross-section (that resembles a horseshoe) with an exclamation point.

That indicator light in your vehicle has a history. It’s a history rooted in years of uncertainty about proper tyre pressure and many serious car accidents that might have been avoided had drivers known their air pressure was low. Even now, it’s estimated that a substantial number of vehicles hit the road each day with under-inflated tires. However, proper tyre maintenance with the aid of a TPMS can and does help prevent many serious accidents.

Before this indicator light became commonplace, knowing whether your air pressure had reached unsafe levels meant getting out, crouching down, and using a tire gauge. With few exceptions, this was the only pressure-checking tool ordinary consumers had at their disposal.

Not every TPMS works the same way but the resolution is the same. Visit Dessie’s Tyres and we will look after any and all TPMS related issues you may have.
