Tire Pressure Monitoring Systems at Krenzen in Duluth MN
One attractive newer feature on cars is a tire pressure monitoring system (TPMS) that will warn drivers when they may need to add more air to their tires, or when a tire may have a leak. Because keeping the right amount of pressure in your tires can extend their life, and also give you the best traction, this can be a very important advantage. Pressure monitoring may also help you detect a slow leak before it gets to the point where you end up stuck on the highway with a flat tire. With a new or newer vehicle you don’t have to schedule a service appointment to find out how the pressure is in your tires. Tire pressure monitoring systems at Krenzen in Duluth MN area available on our Nissan, Honda and Lincoln models.
Many new Lincoln vehicles come with a tire pressure monitoring system (TPMS) connected to the valve stem of each tire. If low tire pressure is detected in any tire, a warning will appear on the dash indicating which tire has the issue. Once the pressure issue has been corrected, that warning will disappear automatically after two minutes of driving over 20 mph. Learn more in the video.
Instead of relying on pressure sensors on each tire, the Honda indirect tire pressure monitoring system which is available on models like the Honda CR-V tracks the rotational speed of each wheel. When a tire is low, that will increase the speed of its rotation. After the tires have been refilled, rotated, or changed, the TPMS system will have to be re-calibrated. You can learn more about calibration in the video.
In addition to a TPMS that will warn drivers if their tires are getting low, some Nissan vehicles offer an Easy-Fill Tire Alert System. You can learn more about this feature in the video, but it will actually honk the vehicle’s horn when the correct tire pressure has been reached for your vehicle. This can take a lot of the hassle and guesswork out of refilling tires and finding the ideal inflation.
