Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS)
The Car Salon, Tirecraft division staffs the leading Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) technicians in Calgary, AB . Your vehicle’s Tire Pressure Monitoring System continuously monitors the air pressure in your tires. When there is an instance of low tire pressure in your vehicle’s tires, the system will detect and report the discrepancy in the form of a dashboard indicator light. When the TPMS light flashes on your dashboard, it’s either time to check your tire pressure, inflate the tire with low tire pressure, or bring your vehicle into our location in Calgary, AB so that the issue can be remedied by our certified mechanics. Tires operating below maximum efficiency will put the overall performance of your vehicle and the safety of your passengers at risk. Your vehicle’s TPMS system helps to increase your safety on the road in Calgary, AB by improving your vehicle’s maneuverability, decreasing your tire’s tread wear, reducing your vehicle’s braking distance, and improving your vehicle’s fuel economy.
Why is it important to maintain consistent tire pressure between your vehicle’s tires? The simple answer: inconsistent performance issues. A tire with low pressure has a shorter rolling radius than a tire with the more tire pressure. Tires with inconsistent air pressure can lead to a tire failure while driving. Typically, your vehicle’s Tire Pressure Monitoring System will notify you by a dashboard light when tire pressure drops 25 percent or below the manufacturer’s recommended level of tire pressure.
There are two types of Tire Pressure Monitoring Systems in vehicles on the road in Calgary, AB today—Direct and Indirect. A Direct Tire Pressure Monitoring System uses sensors on the inside tire assembly to transmit tire pressure information to your vehicle’s computer. An Indirect Tire Pressure Monitoring System gauges tire pressure through your vehicle’s Antilock Braking System (ABS) by measuring the difference in diameter of each tire. Both TPMS systems require an equal amount of maintenance in order to ensure maximum performance standards now required by the TREAD act passed by Congress which officially required all vehicles on the road in Calgary , AB to be equipped with a Tire Pressure Monitoring System.
During a Tire Pressure Monitoring System service at our facility, our certified mechanics will run a system of tests on the TPMS system in order to ensure that the system is operating at maximum efficiency. In cases of damage to your vehicle’s Tire Pressure Monitoring System, our mechanics may need to replace valve cores, valve nuts, seals, seal washers, or valve caps. In a failure of a tire, the correct TPMS equipped tire parts will need to be replaced along with the replacement of the tire.
