So, you’re driving along on your Frazee commute, and suddenly the TPMS light flashes on your dashboard. But what does TPMS mean, and what does it mean for your car?

It stands for Tire Pressure Monitoring System. What does the Tire Pressure Monitoring System do? And why do you need one in your car? What does ‘check TPMS’ mean? When you’ve got questions about your vehicle, our service department has the answers. Find out below what the Tire Pressure Monitoring System means and how it helps keep your car safe!

What Does TPMS Mean on a Car?

What does TPMS mean on a car, and what does it do? The Tire Pressure Monitoring System monitors how well your tires are inflated. This saves you the time of getting out of your car and attaching a tire gauge to each tire one at a time. It’s great for busy Frazee drivers.

What Does “Check TPMS” Mean?

What should you do if the TPMS light flashes? And when the “check TPMS” light turns on what should you do? If the light flashes, that means one or more of your tires are low. You should inflate the tire at your earliest opportunity while you’re out and driving around Callaway. Do not put it off until later, as you do not want to drive on a flat tire. If a tire becomes low repeatedly, you will probably need a new tire, or to have your tire repaired. The service department at Norseman Motors, Inc. will be happy to help you with that.

Why You Should Keep Your Tires Properly Inflated

Here are some reasons why it’s so important to maintain proper tire pressure:

  • Tires wear out faster when they aren’t properly inflated.
  • Tires that don’t have enough air pressure don’t have good traction, meaning you’re more likely to swerve around curves or lose control during poor road conditions, especially during harsh Perham Winters.
  • Properly inflated tires deliver the best gas mileage.
