Tire Pressure Monitoring System in Thunder Bay

The experts at Driven Cars Canada are here to repair your Tire Pressure Monitoring System in Thunder Bay.

What does your Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) do?

The TPMS in your vehicle is constantly monitoring the air pressure in your tires. It alerts you when tire pressure is low in one or multiple tires. When the TPMS dashboard light comes on, it can mean a few different things.

If it turns on and stays on while driving, one or multiple tires likely has low pressure. When the light turns on and turns off overnight or at different times of the day, it probably means that temperature changes are causing the fluctuations. You should still check your tire pressure in this case, and fill the tires to the recommended level. If the light flashes and then stays on, it means the TPMS needs to be serviced and repaired since it isn’t functioning correctly.

Located in Thunder Bay, Driven Cars Canada is happy to inspect and repair your TPMS or fix your tire inflation level.

Is it safe to drive with the TPMS light on? Tires that are not inflated correctly can:

  • Increase chances of an accident
  • Decrease traction
  • Cause absorption of road impact goes down
  • Wear tires out faster
  • Sometimes cause tire failure
  • Decrease fuel efficiency

Even if your TPMS is working, you should still check your tire pressure regularly. The TPMS only warns when a tire is under-inflated by 25%, so you still need to use a tire gauge and test tire pressure often.

We would love to help keep you safe and keep your vehicle working efficiently with properly inflated tires. Driven Cars Canada proudly meets the Tire Pressure Monitoring System repair needs of customers in Thunder Bay and surrounding areas.
