What Does TPMS Mean?

TPMS Light on Dash

If you’ve been searching through our new Nissan inventory, you might notice TPMS on the list of safety features. So, what does TPMS mean? TPMS stands for Tire Pressure Monitoring System. This technology uses pressure sensors in each individualtire, and if any tires fall under the recommended inflation level, you’ll get an instant alert on your dashboard. This ensures that your Nissan Rogue or Nissan Sentra tire pressure is always right where it should be. Find out more about how TPMS works with Garden Grove Nissan, and see how it can improve your Santa Ana travels.

Tire Pressure Monitoring System

So, you know what TPMS does, but how does it enhance your driving experience? Your Tire Pressure Monitoring System is designed to monitor your air pressure levels, so even if you don’t break out the pressure gauge, you can rest assured that your tires are in good condition. If your air pressure is not within the Nissan guidelines, you’ll see a warning light on your dashboard. It will look like a flat tire with an exclamation mark in the center, or it could just be the letters TPMS. Underinflated tires can cause issues like:

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

Proper Tire Inflation

A properly inflated tire offers many benefits that you might not realize. Properly inflated tires reduce your tread movement, which preserves your traction and increases the life of the tire. You’ll also get the optimal fuel economy, thanks to the reduced rolling resistance, and lowered risk of hydroplaning in Anaheim – thanks to the increased water dispersion. So, how do you fill up your tires if you notice the TPMS light?

  • Gas Station: Many gas stations have areas to fill up your tires for free.
  • Service Center: Get your Nissan Sentra tire pressure checked and maintained in one visit at your favorite service center.
  • DIY: A bike pump or air compressor can get the job done in your garage in Orange County!
