Tire Pressure Monitoring Systems

Tire Pressure System ServiceA Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) is designed to monitor the air pressure in a vehicle’s tires and to report potential inflation problems to the driver, usually through a yellow indicator light on the dashboard. These systems have been in use for over a decade, but they have only recently become a mandatory safety system. The Transportation Recall Enhanced Accountability and Documentation (TREAD) Act requires that all vehicles sold in the U.S. after September 1, 2007, come equipped with a TPMS. (See “History” below for more details, including exclusions to this requirement).
