What is TPMS and How Do I Reset the Light – Is your TPMS Light On – Tire Pressure Monitoring System


SO IF YOU START YOUR VEHICLE ONE DAY AND THIS LIGHT COMES ON THAT LITTLE LIGHT RIGHT THERE ASKED MY WIFE
WHAT THAT LOOKED LIKE AND SHE SAID IT LOOKS LIKE
AN EXCLAMATION POINT WITH ARMS AROUND IT IT’S ACTUALLY YOUR TIRE MONITORING SYSTEM THE SYSTEM ACTUALLY MONITORS HOW MUCH AIR YOU HAVE IN YOUR TIRES AND TYPICALLY WHEN THAT COMES ON YOUR TIRE PRESSURE IS LOW SO THAT BEING THE CASE NINE TIMES OUT OF TEN YOU CAN JUST CHECK YOUR TIRE PRESSURE PUT
THE CORRECT AMOUNT OF AIR IN THE TIRE AND THE TPMS LIGHT SHOULD GO OFF IF IT’S SOMETHING
ELSE IF YOU FILL UP THE TIRES TO THE SPECIFIC AMOUNT OF PSI AND THE LIGHT IS STILL ON THEN YOU PROBABLY NEED TO TAKE IT TO A SERVICE CENTER TO HAVE IT CHECKED OUT BECAUSE SOMETIMES THE MONITORS THE WIRELESS MONITORS INSIDE THE
TIRE ON THE RIM THAT THAT CAN GO BAD AND THAT WILL SET THIS LIGHT AS WELL WHAT HAPPENS IS WATER GETS INTO THE TIRE AND WIPES OUT THE TPMS SENSOR IT’S CALL THE TIRE PRESSURE MONITORING SYSTEM TPMS ON MOST CARS MADE IN THE USA THERE’S GOING
TO BE A STICKER ON THE INSIDE OF THE DOOR JAM SO RIGHT HERE IN THE INSIDE OF THE DOOR JAM RIGHT HERE YOU CAN SEE ORIGINAL TIRE SIZE 225/15/17 SHOWS YOU FRONT AND REAR AND WHAT THE SPARE TIRE SHOULD BE AS WELL SO LOOKING DOWN HERE COLD TIRE PRESSURE INFLATION COLD TIRE INFLATION PRESSURE LOOKING AT 32 PSI FOR THE FRONT 32 PSI FOR THE REAR AND THE SPARE TIRE SHOULD BE AT 60 PSI SO THIS THIS
AH THIS IS FOR WHEN THE TIRE IS COLD FIRST THING
IN THE MORNING IS WHEN THE TIRES WILL BE COLD LET’S GO SEE IF IT’S AT THE 32 PSI MARK OK I’M ATTACHED TO A AIR HOSE HERE RIGHT HERE TYPICALLY ON A THESE AIR CHUCKS YOU HAVE A INDICATOR OF THE PSI INSIDE THE TIRE BUT THIS
IS A MECHANIC BASED ONE SO I KNOW THAT THIS MONITOR THIS GAUGE HAS BEEN TAKEN CARE OF TYPICALLY AT GAS STATIONS THOSE THINGS ARE USED AND ABUSED PRETTY ROUGHLY SO PEOPLE JUST THROW THEM AND THEY REEL UP INTO THAT AIR WATER PRESSURE STATION THEY HAVE AND THOSE TYPICALLY THOSE GAUGES ARE PROBABLY NOT THE MOST RELIABLE JUST BASED ON THE ABUSE THEY SEE SO IT’S BEST TO GO AHEAD GET YOUR
OWN TIRE PRESSURE MONITOR THESE YOU CAN PICK THESE UP FROM ANYWHERE ANY PARTS HOUSE ANY PARTS STORE LESS THAN $4 BUCKS SO IT’S ALWAYS A GOOD IDEA TO HAVE YOUR OWN TIRE PRESSURE GAUGE AND NOT RELY ON ONES THAT YOU SEE AT THE GAS STATIONS AT THE AIR WATER STATIONS THAT ARE FREE SO 32 PSI WE’RE AT 30 PSI SO JUST COME IN HERE PUSH THE DIAL INDICATOR ONTO THE STEM MAKE SURE YOU DON’T HEAR ANY AIR LEAKS AND RIGHT THERE YOU CAN SEE IT’S AT 30 PSI SO I’LL GO AHEAD CONNECT THE AIR CHUCK AND FILL IT UP TO THE PROPER AMOUNT 32 PSI 32 PSI IN THE TIRE OK SO I’LL GO AROUND WITH THE TIRE GAUGE AND THE AIR LINE AIR CHUCK AND FILL UP ALL THE TIRES TO THE CORRECT AMOUNT OF PSI AND THEN WE WILL GO BACK ON
THE INSIDE AND SEE IF IT SHUT OFF THE TIRE PRESSURE MONITORING SYSTEM LIGHT OR THE EXCLAMATION POINT WITH HANDS AROUND IT AS MY WIFE WOULD SAY ALL FOUR TIRES HAVE BEEN BROUGHT UP, THEY WE’RE ALL LOW SOME OF THEM WERE AT 27 PSI BROUGHT THEM UP TO THE REQUIRED AMOUNT NOW WE’LL GO BACK ON THE INSIDE AND MAKE SURE THAT THE LIGHT GOES OFF SO WE’RE BACK INSIDE THE VEHICLE LET’S FIRE IT UP MAKE SURE THAT THE TIRE PRESSURE MONITORING SYSTEM LIGHT HAS GONE OFF

  1. I first got a car like that in 2014 the symbol came on I just put air in it the light went off.The car I got now has that and the light has not come on yet.I got about 4 tire gauges one is like the one you have.You can also get free tire pressure checks and free gauges at Discount Tires,you just pull up to this area there and the Discount tire person checks your tire pressure and adds air if needed no charge.I took a car in and believe it or not they patched my slow leak tire free I could not believe that.
