The TPM system has been optimized for the original
equipment tires and wheels. TPM system pressures
have been established for the tire size equipped on
your vehicle. Undesirable system operation or sen-
sor damage may result when using replacement
equipment that is not of the same size, type, and/or
style. After-market wheels can cause sensor damage.
Do not use tire sealant or balance beads if your
vehicle is equipped with a TPM system, as damage
to the sensors may result.
The TPM system can inform the driver of a low tire
pressure condition of 25 psi [1.72 bars] (172 kPa) or
less, or high a tire pressure condition of 45 psi [3.10
bars] (310 kPa) or more.
The TPM system is not intended to replace normal tire
care and maintenance, nor to provide warning of a tire
failure or condition.
The TPM system should not be used as a tire pressure
gauge while adjusting your tire pressure.
The TPM system must be retrained after a tire rotation
or wheel rim mounted sensor replacement. See your
authorized dealer for service.
After inspecting or adjusting the tire pressure al-
ways reinstall the valve stem cap, if equipped. This
will prevent moisture and dirt from entering the
valve stem, which could damage the wheel rim
