Tire Pressure – Monitoring System

Proper tire pressure maintenance will ensure optimal safety and handling of your vehicle

At Klahanie Service Center, we recommend having your tire pressure monitoring system inspected by our certified technicians. This inspection starts with a systems check on all tire pressure sensors to pinpoint any potential problem. This test also includes:

  • Test the vehicle’s tire pressure
  • Inspect the tire assembly sensor to ensure it is transmitting date correctly to your vehicle’s computer system
  • If needed, replace pressure sensors
  • Reset the sensors with our specialized TPMS tool
  • Replace the cap, nut, valve core and o-ring seal
  • Remount the tires

Why is it important to maintain my vehicle’s tire pressure monitoring system (TPMS)?

Your vehicle’s TPMS is an electronic component needed to monitor the air pressure of your tires. Tires need optimal inflation to achieve these potential benefits:

  • Optimal vehicle safety and handling
  • Optimal fuel efficiency
  • Lessened tread wear to tires
  • Reduction in braking distance
  • Reduction in CO2 emissions

How can I tell when I need to have my TPMS tested?

Most of today’s vehicles come equipped with tire pressure monitoring components. If you see a ‘low tire pressure’ warning light when the ignition is turned on with the key, then you have a TPMS system. If your warning light comes on and stays lit, it means your tire pressure has fallen to 25 or more percent below the manufacturer’s standard level. You should immediately bring your vehicle to Klahanie Service Center for an inspection and correction of tire pressure and sensors.
