Tire Pressure Monitoring System ServiceWhat is TPMS? TPMS stands for Tire Pressure Monitoring System, which are sensors in your tires that help monitor when your tire’s air pressure is too low. Our tire technicians at Goodyear Auto Service will test each TPMS sensor to make sure it’s working properly, then either reset the sensors or replace them.
WHAT OUR TPMS SERVICE IS AND WHEN YOU NEED IT
Places to go? People to see? Both are more enjoyable without a blinking or flashing tire pressure light distracting you along the way.
If an illuminated symbol of a tire profile with an exclamation point in the middle appears on your dashboard, indicating that the air inside your tires may be low, or if you think your tire pressure may be low but a light isn’t on, stop by and let one of our tire technicians inspect it for you.
How Do I Know I Need My Tire Pressure Sensors Checked?
- TPMS Light: The tire pressure light illuminates when the car is started and stays on while driving
- Low Tire Pressure: The vehicle’s tire pressure is frequently low regardless of outside temperature
- TPMS Reset: The TPMS Light was not reset during a recent service appointment
