Tire pressure is incredibly important when it comes to your driving experience. Modern Honda vehicles have a Tire Pressure Monitoring System installed to ensure that your Honda's tires maintain a proper level of inflation. This system keeps track of your tires' inflation and lets you know if one or more tires have too much or too little air. If you're having trouble with your Honda's Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS), come to Honda of Murfreesboro near La Vergne, Tennessee. Our technicians can inspect the system and handle any problems.
Some Tire Pressure Monitoring Systems have a sensor in each wheel that feeds information to a computer. This system is more common in older Honda models equipped with TPMS. More recent models instead use an indirect TPMS. Rather than having sensors inside the tires, these systems can calculate the inflation of each tire based on the wheels' speed. Whichever system your Honda has, it will tell you when the tires need attention based on inflation.
Your TPMS may need to be recalibrated from time to time. If the TPMS light on your dash comes on, but the tires are properly inflated, the TMPS likely needs to be recalibrated. We can recalibrate it at Honda of Murfreesboro, Tennessee.
Correct tire inflation is key for your vehicle's comfort, safety, tire life, and fuel efficiency. If your tires do not have enough air in them, you may find yourself unable to steer as precisely as you need. Underinflated tires are also prone to blowouts: the combination of the rubber becoming overheated (since more of it comes into contact with the road) and flexing too much. Too much air can also cause tire damage. Overinflated tires are more likely to become damaged when you hit potholes or bumps in the road, but they can also decrease your comfort as you drive. A functioning TPMS can help you avoid both extremes.
If your TPMS light is giving you trouble, we're happy to help at Honda of Murfreesboro. Schedule your appointment online or by phone.
