Did the TPMS light or MIL lamp recently illuminate on your dashboard? These indicators should not be ignored and should be taken quite seriously for the safety of you and your vehicle. The Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) will alert you when your tire pressure has become too low, and could thus lead to unsafe driving conditions. The Malfunction Indicator Lamp (MIL), also known as the Check Engine Light, is part of the on board diagnostic system of sensors that detect problems in the vehicle’s engine, transmission, or emission control system.

When the tire pressure drops on your vehicle, the handling of the vehicle, tire performance, and load carrying capacity become compromised and potentially dangerous. When your tires are properly inflated, there is a reduction in tread movement, water is more easily dispersed around the tires, and there is an increase in fuel economy. The TPMS light will help you prevent any damage that could occur from improperly inflated tires. The MIL lamp can indicate an array of issues, which can be minor or major. It is advisable not to delay having a professional diagnostic done on your vehicle if the Check Engine Light has become illuminated.
