What Does My TPMS Indicator Light Mean?

Every late model Subaru you'll find here at Carter Subaru Ballard features the Tire Pressure Monitor System. What is TPMS, you might ask? TPMS is a warning system design to keep you safe that constantly measures the air pressure in your tires. By warning you when your tire pressure is low, the TPMS gives you a chance fill or repair your tires and avoid potential catastrophe with a sudden flat or popped tire while on the road. If the air pressure in your tires drop suddenly or falls to an unsafe level, the TPMS indicator illuminates to let you know it's time to give your tires some attention. Ignoring the TPMS and throwing caution to the wind can be dangerous--the tire pressure monitor system is designed to keep you safe, take advantage of this great safety feature.

Why is Tire Pressure Important?

Having the right pressure in your tires can make a difference in a variety of ways. Having the right amount of air pressure in your tires can help your Subaru perform efficiently, keep you in control. Not enough air pressure in your tires puts stress on the engine and transmission and exposes you to danger by making it easier to hydroplane or lose control on roads the Subaru would otherwise handle with ease. Avoid danger by keeping the right amount of air in your tires and paying attention to safety features like the TPMS.

How Can I Care for My Tires?

Caring for your tires is as easy as paying attention. If you see the TPMS light go on, your tires may be in need of air but you can also gauge whether your tires are low visually and with a conventional tire pressure gauge. You can also care for your tires by checking the sidewalls and tread depth. If your side walls are damaged or tire tread is too low, it's time to have your tires replaced by Carter Subaru Ballard technicians. For even more information on the TPMS and how it works, talk to our technicians at Carter Subaru Ballard!
