Tire pressure monitoring sensor: A tire-pressure monitoring system (TPMS) is an electronic system designed to monitor the air pressure inside the pneumatic tires on various types of vehicles.TPMS report real-time tire-pressure information to the driver of the vehicle, either via a gauge, a pictogram display, or a simple low-pressure warning light”. If your vehicle is 2008 and newer most models come stock with Tpms sensors which is one of the best safety features out there.”

Why should we have TPMS on our tires?

Tire pressure monitoring sensor really has one job and it does it really well tell you when your tire has gone flat or lost some Psi. The reason why your Tpms sensor is because tires are like your legs you have to make sure they work to move, also it’s important because a lot of accidents on the roads happen when drivers have deflated tires cause vehicle not to stop quick enough or having a blowout while on the road, Tpms sensor is designed to tell you if there is some issue that happening with the tire which can not only save your tires, vehicle but most importantly it can save your life don't ignore the orange light.

 

What to do when the light comes on

I would recommend pulling over and checking either your dashboard system which will display what tire is flat in some cases or exiting the vehicle and making sure all the tires are good to drive on to the next gas station to get some air and that there isn't any nails or blowouts on the car. This procedure can help keep you and people on the roads safe and might just take a few minutes of your life.
