TPMS is not intended to replace normal tire care and
maintenance, or to provide warning of a tire failure or
TPMS should not be used as a tire pressure gauge
while adjusting your tire pressure.
Driving on a significantly under-inflated tire causes
the tire to overheat and can lead to tire failure.
Under-inflation also reduces fuel efficiency and tire
tread life, and may affect the vehicle’s handling and
TPMS is not a substitute for proper tire maintenance,
and it is the driver’s responsibility to maintain correct
tire pressure using an accurate tire pressure gauge,
even if under-inflation has not reached the level to
trigger illumination of the TPM Light.
Seasonal temperature changes will affect tire pressure,
and the TPMS will monitor the actual tire pressure in
BASE SYSTEM — IF EQUIPPED
The Tire Pressure Monitor System (TPMS) uses wireless
technology with wheel rim mounted electronic sensors to
monitor tire pressure levels. Sensors, mounted to each
wheel as part of the valve stem, transmit tire pressure
readings to the Receiver Module.
NOTE: It is particularly important for you to check the
tire pressure in all of the tires on your vehicle monthly
and to maintain the proper pressure.
The TPMS consists of the following components:
Four Tire Pressure Monitoring Sensors
Tire Pressure Monitoring Telltale Light
