What is a TPMS system?

TPMS stands for Tire Pressure Monitoring System.

Although there are various types they basically all do the same thing which is to constantly monitor the air pressure in your tires. 

Most systems compare the air pressure in all four tire and alert the driver if there is variance of one or more tires that falls outside a preset limit. 

This could mean that one tire has more pressure in it than the others or doesn’t have enough.

Some systems will alert the driver as to which tire is the problem others merely alert the driver to the problem without identifying which tire.
