Your Tire Pressure Light is Designed to Keep You Safe

March 7th, 2018 by

If you notice a horseshoe-shaped light with an exclamation point in the middle become illuminated while you are driving, there’s no cause for alarm. That’s the Tire Pressure Monitoring System, also known as the TPMS, simply alerting you to schedule a stop in our service center to have the tire pressure checked.

The TPMS is a valuable tool installed in more recent vehicle models to help drivers know when a tire is underinflated or not at the proper pressure for driving safely. Being alerted that a tire’s pressure is low can help to prevent a coming blowout or extend the lifespan of your tires by preventing premature wear on the treads.

Our knowledgeable service technicians at Beaman Dodge Chrysler Jeep Ram FIAT will be happy to inflate your tire to the proper recommended pressure level as well as check for signs of any leakage caused by an embedded nail or sharp object.
