There are a lot of moving parts that are involved with keeping your Lincoln moving on Winnipeg roads. One of the most critical components in a new or pre-owned Lincoln is the TPMS. Wondering to yourself, “What does TPMS mean?” TPMS stands for Tire Pressure Monitoring System, which uses tire pressure sensors to monitor the air pressure of your tire.

If it senses one or more of your vehicle’s tires aren’t at the recommended pressure, the TPMS warning light on your dashboard will turn on or flash, so you know to add air to your Lincoln car or SUV. Some older vehicles come with TPMS, however, many new vehicles have TPMS installed. So you can rest easy knowing that you can prevent tire failure and maintain good vehicle handling while cruising around Weyburn. Find out everything you need to know about your car’s tire pressure monitoring system with the service experts at Capital Lincoln Winnipeg below!

How Does a Tire Pressure Monitoring System Work?

The purpose of a tire pressure monitoring system is to track the pressure inside your tires and alert you if the levels drop below safe levels. Now that we’ve answered the question, “What does TPMS mean?”, as well as, “What does TPMS do?”, it’s important to understand what the systems’ warning signs look like. The TPMS dashboard warning light might look like the illuminated letters “TPMS”, or it could appear as a flat tire with an exclamation point in the middle of it. Do you notice your tire pressure light flashing while driving on Moose Jaw roads? Then your tires are more than likely underinflated, which could result in:

  • Poor traction
  • Decreased load-carrying capability
  • A flat tire or blowout
  • Poor fuel economy
