Classic Chevrolet and our on-site service center welcome drivers from around Broken Arrow and beyond to visit us in Owasso, Oklahoma for complete tire care, including TPMS (Tire Pressure Monitoring System) service. Modern vehicles often contain tire pressure sensors at each wheel to detect when tire pressure is too low, and are utilized to alert the driver to the issue for a quick fix via tire inflating or service.
You may not even be aware of your car's tire pressure system until a warning light comes on telling you that at least one of the sensors has detected low tire pressure. Like any other warning that lights up your dashboard, it may be alarming to learn that your TPMS has detected low tire pressure. If this happens, we encourage you to visit our service department for a quick inspection of your tires and TPMS.
We welcome you to learn more about your vehicle's TPMS here on our website so that you are better informed about the reasons the warning light may come on, and what to do when it does!
When the TPMS light comes on and stays on during driving, that means at least one of your tires is at a low tire pressure. We advise you to check each tire with a gauge, noting the recommended pressure on the sidewall of your tires, and ensuring that each tire is inflated within those guidelines.
If the TPMS light ever goes on and then off, this may mean that fluctuating temperatures are causing the readings to show low tire pressure during cooler ambient temperatures, with the tire pressure light going off again once the air or tire temperature rises. When temperatures vary widely from day to night, you may find that the TPMS light comes on occasionally, at which time you should again check tire pressure to ensure its within the safe range.
When the tire pressure light flashes for a minute or two each time you start your car and then remains illuminated as you drive, this means the system is not functioning properly and requires service. Until you have the system repaired, your vehicle's TPMS will not be in working order, and won't be able to accurately alert you to low tire pressure.
In any case that your car's TPMS warning light comes on, we encourage you to schedule a service visit at our dealership near Tulsa for a quick inspection of the system as well as your tires. One of more of your tire pressure sensors may need replacing, or you may have another tire-related issue such as a slow leak that's setting off the TPMS every so often.
Keep in mind that having a TPMS on your car, SUV or pickup truck does not replace routine tire maintenance! These systems will only tell you if one or more of your tires need inflating, and will not provide any information about tread level or the overall condition of your tires.
At Classic Chevrolet, we employ a highly skilled team of auto service professionals that hold GM and ASE certifications and are regularly trained in the latest tire service procedures and technologies. Turn to our expert team for comprehensive automotive maintenance, including all tire services. We can not only ensure that the TPMS on your vehicle is operating as intended, but we can also conduct a detailed inspection to determine if a tire rotation, inflation or replacement is in order.
