If your vehicles Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) light turns on, this indicates that one or more of your tires is under-inflated by at least 25%. If your TPMS light is flashing, this indicates a problem with the system itself. The Tire Pressure Monitoring System is important to maintain in working condition to ensure that you are warned when your tire pressure is low and your safety is at risk. A TPMS can malfunction when a sensor has failed or there is a problem in the system. At Big Apple Automotive, our ASE certified technicians can diagnose and fix any issues with your TPMS in the event of a system failure.
The TPMS actually has its own battery in the sensor with a life of about 5-10 years, which is why the sensor needs to be replaced in the instance of a system malfunction. If a system error is ignored, you will fail to be notified if your tire pressure becomes dangerously low, and very low tire pressure can lead to flat tires or blow outs that will leave you stranded on the road.
